In brief: Zinc oxide
Zinc oxide can cause allergic reactions in people with allergies to zinc.
In addition, because zinc oxide-containing creams also contain other ingredients such as dimethicone, lanolin, cod liver oil, petroleum jelly, parabens, mineral oil or wax, people who are allergic to these ingredients should avoid using topical zinc oxide creams.
