It acts as a physical sunscreen by reflecting and scattering UVA and UVB rays away from the skin. It is also used as an opacifying agent and thickening agent in cosmetics. It is a safe, non-irritating, and non-allergenic ingredient which makes it suitable for sensitive skin types and can be used in many products such as sunscreens, moisturizers, and make-up products. It is also an effective treatment for acne as it helps to reduce inflammation and regulate oil production.
