Calamine Powder


Calamine Powder is often called pink clay and is mostly used for sensitive skin. Calamine powder has zinc oxide which when mixed with a small amount of ferric acid makes it pink. It comes from the natural mineral deposits which are turned into a soft powder when milled. It is one of the main constituents of the traditional Calamine lotion that is used to relieve redness, stinging and irritation of the skin.
