Aluminum Hydroxide

According to,
“Acts as a skin protectant and opacifying (reduction of a clear/transparent appearance) agent in cosmetics. It’s used in an array of products including foundation, lipstick and moisturizer. Many sunscreens use aluminum hydroxide as a coating for titanium dioxide- it prevents it from clumping and allows for an even application. Rather than penetrating the skin, it forms a refractive layer that helps reflect UV rays away from the skin. In fact, an aluminum coating is recommended in the Guidelines for Natural Cosmetics of the BDIH.”
