Zinc Oxide

Mineral sunscreens (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) are the most important ingredients you can use to protect the health and appearance of your skin. Zinc Oxide is considered by many to be the best overall sunscreen ingredient:

  • Provides protection across the broadest range of long UVA and UVB light
  • Technology advances in sizing and coating zinc oxide particles have enabled transparent, lightweight coverage without loss of efficacy
  • Gentle and non-irritating; especially good for sensitive skin
  • Reflects and refracts light away from the skin
  • Does not break down in sunlight; remains stable
  • Reflects infrared light from the skin and acts as a “heat sink” to reduce the damaging effects of heat on the skin
  • No evidence of harm to the environment; widely used in the medical industry
