Best sunscreen in Zinc Oxide

Best sunscreen is Zinc Oxide.

Chemical sunscreens do protect against sunburn but there is no scientific proof they protect against skin cancer. We explain why Zinc Oxide is the best sunscreen:

Zinc oxide is a natural mineral known as zincite. It has been used safely for generations to shield against the harmful effects of the sun. Micronised zinc oxide is transparent on your skin with all the natural benefits of the best Sunscreen protection.

Zinc oxide is the best sunscreen

• Sun blocks, such as zinc oxide, work by physically reflecting the sun’s rays and are effective against both UV-B and UV-A rays, making it the best sunscreen!

• Unlike chemical sunscreen ingredients, zinc oxide cannot be absorbed into the skin and is not metabolized by the body, making it the best sunscreen!

• Zinc oxide is micronised (nanoparticles) and does not leave a heavy white coating on the skin (like traditional zinc formulas do). Being clear/transparent on the skin makes Zinc Oxide sunscreen practical and means people actually wear it, making it the best sunscreen!

• Zinc oxide provides a thin film of micro-fine particles over the skin. This ensures a protective physical barrier over the skin ensuring the most complete protection for your skin all year round, making it the best sunscreen!...I’m sure you get my point!

• Additionally, unlike most chemical sunscreen ingredients, zinc oxide is known to be stable and it won’t degrade in the sun.

• Zinc oxide is the only sunscreen ingredient recognized by the FDA as a Category I Skin Protectant and is recommended for use on environmentally challenged skin.

• Zinc oxide is the only ingredient that is FDA recognized as having both UVB and UVA broad spectrum protection/

• Zinc oxide is for the most part insoluble in water, but is soluble in acids and alkalis, making it water- and wear-proof with excellent screen effect to UV-A and UV-B.

• Safe for use on lips, face, body and nails.

Chemical Sunscreens

Chemical sunscreen ingredients are designed to absorb portions of the UVB (burning rays) or UVA (cause of aging and skin cancer) rays and are often used in combination to achieve adequate UVB and at best, limited UVA protection.

• Many sunscreens only protect against UVB rays and allow penetration of damaging UVA rays

• Common chemical sunscreen ingredients are known carcinogens and/or hormone disrupters, including diethanolamine, triethanolamine (DEA, TEA), padimate-o, octyl dimethyl PABA, benzophenone, oxybenzone, homosalate, octyl-methoxycinnamate (octinoxate), salicylates, and parabens.

Do you and your family deserve the best sunscreen ?

Love the skin you're in!
