Thin Layer Technology (TLT)
Fatty substances or mineral oils will ‘close’ the skin. When the skin can’t absorb the cream, the cream stays on the skin or the clothes, a towel, a diaper or anything else will absorb it. This also means that the active ingredients will not become ‘active’, because they are not absorbed or come in contact with the skin. This is complete contradicted to our base cream, where the active ingredients come directly in contact with the skin and therefore can work faster. The base cream doesn’t contain skin-closing ingredients, like mineral oils. And that is what you want.
The pump-spray-on products have a special spray applicator that produces a thin ‘mist’ of cream on the skin. This is called Thin Layer Technology (TLT). By using a sweeping movement, TLT assures a bigger coverage of the only 0,2 ml of cream that comes with every single application.
A sweeping movement is recommended when using a Zinc oxide cream spray for the treatment of diaper rash or other skin problems. It produces a bigger coverage and the skin can be very sensitive or even painful in such cases. So when the affected area is covered with cream, it is not necessary to rub the cream. The normal spray pattern of the spray cap is almost round, with ‘more’ cream on the ‘outside’ of the circle. Spraying with a certain distance to the skin, 10 to 15 cm, you will notice a mist of cream and less a circle.
