FAQs

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL SUNSCREEN?

Physical sunscreens, also known as physical blockers, contain natural active minerals that deflect the sun’s UV rays away from skin. Chemical sunscreens, or chemical absorbers, contain chemicals like oxybenzone, octionoxate, octisalate, and avobenzone. These chemicals absorb UV rays and convert them into heat, finally releasing the heat from the skin.

PHYSICAL SUNSCREEN INGREDIENTS

Both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can be used in physical sunscreen ingredients. Zinc oxide mineral sunscreen is the only sunscreen recommended by the FDA for babies, and titanium dioxide mineral sunscreen protects your complexion while giving it a smooth finish. Our powder physical sunscreen for face contains active minerals to deflect UV rays.

WHICH IS BETTER FOR MY SKIN?

If you have sensitive skin, chemical sunscreen may cause irritation. The ingredients in these sunscreens can result in discoloration, itching, burning, blistering, and hormone disruption. Chemical sunscreen lotions can also clog pores and cause acne—especially if you have an already sensitive complexion. In contrast, physical sunscreens, like mineral-based sunblock powder, contain organic ingredients that don’t harm or irritate skin. Oil-free powder sunscreens are also non-comedogenic, meaning they don’t clog pores. Whether or not you have sensitive skin, there’s no denying that sun protection is an important part of daily skincare. Our non-comedogenic physical sunscreen is a convenient way to incorporate SPF into your makeup routine, without the irritation or greasiness of conventional sunscreens.
