Calamine Powder


Calamine Powder



Calamine powder gently cleanses the most delicate skin and soothes irritations.

What is calamine made of?

Although some calamine powders are made of zinc oxide, ours is zinc carbonate, a white powder that occurs naturally as a mineral called smithsonite. The signature light pink colour of calamine is then achieved by adding a touch of iron oxide, a rust-red pigment.

What are the benefits of the powder?

  • First and foremost, calamine powder soothes the skin, calms irritation and relieves itching.
  • Its absorbing properties keep the skin soft and dry - it is an ideal base for dusting powders and deodorants.
  • The powder also helps preserve products by reducing the liquid content in our formulae, creating an inhospitable environment for mould-causing microorganisms.
