Hi out with z7 11 on the beach were a wave caught me out and hit the camera pulled it out the way pretty quick dry it off straight away wiped it off with a damp fresh water cloth placed in a zip lock polly bag with silica gel in but after about 30mins around the flash shoe was a white substance wasn't salt more like a grease away cleaned it off it came back a couple of times but gone now camera works great but still wondering what it was and should I send away to be checked

Probably Aluminumoxide (Al2O3)...
Let's hope no salt water found a way into the camera. The real damage can occur years later.

I would send the camera to the Nikon service to check it
