How much sunscreen to use?
Our mineral sunscreens go on white so you don’t miss a spot but rub-in easy so you can get on with the fun.
Let's shine a light on some basic sunscreen terms.
zinc oxide: A mineral ingredient* (derived from zinc) that works as a physical block sunscreen agent.
physical vs. chemical sunscreen: Physical sunscreen, with mineral active ingredients, is designed to sit on top of the skin & physically block UVA/UVB rays.
Chemical sunscreen uses non-mineral active ingredients and is designed to absorb into the skin & dissipate UVA/UVB rays.
UVA/UVB: These types of ultraviolet radation damage the skin & increase your risk of skin cancer. UVB rays are the main culprit behind sunburn. UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply and are associated with the effects of aging.
titanium dioxide: A mineral ingredient* (the oxide of titanium) that works as a physical block sunscreen agent.
broad spectrum: This term means a sunscreen product protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
