All about zinc and our sunscreens

There's no denying that sun protection is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine - regardless of type, needs, or age, protecting your skin from the sun (every day!) is a truly essential gesture. But which sunscreen should you choose?

Chemical vs mineral sunscreens: what's the difference?

First of all, it is important to know that there are two types of sunscreens: chemical and mineral.

Chemical sunscreens use active ingredients to absorb the sun's rays, turn them into heat, and then release it through the skin. Although they tend to be lighter and more translucent, their formulas can be irritating to more sensitive and acne-prone skin, and they have a negative impact on the environment - due to ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which are toxic to corals and the marine environment.

Unlike chemical sunscreens, mineral sunscreens are physical sunscreens with active ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.These form a physical barrier on the skin, which reflects the sun's rays before they penetrate the cells, and are alsoa better option for sensitive and acne-prone skin - This is because their ingredients are much less likely to block pores or irritate the skin. They are also more beneficial to the skin and have an immediate protective effect against the sun's rays,mineral sunscreens are also more environmentally friendly andreef safe.

What is zinc oxide?

One of the essential ingredients in mineral sunscreens, zinc zinc oxide is a natural sunscreen that protects the skin against sun damage by reflecting UVA and UVB rays rays that are harmful to your health.

In addition, zinc oxide is alsoa soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredientzinc oxide is also a soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredient, which enhances skin healing and helps control excessive oiliness, making ita perfect option for the protection of sensitive and acne-prone skin.
