FAQs

COULD SUNSCREEN BE DAMAGING MY SKIN?

Wearing sunscreen is certainly better than not wearing any at all— but many conventional sunscreens use ingredients that can do more harm than good for your skin. Some ingredients can result in annoying side effects like rashes and acne flare-ups, while others like oxybenzone have been linked to cancer. Sunscreen products that use these ingredients are considered chemical sunscreens.

idea bulb

WHAT HARMFUL INGREDIENTS SHOULD I AVOID WHEN BUYING SUNSCREEN?

  • Oxybenzone

  • Parabens

  • PABA

  • Avobenzone

  • Octisalate

  • Octocrylene

  • Homosalate

  • Octinoxate

Oxybenzone is the most harmful of these ingredients. This chemical can imitate estrogen, a female hormone that signals the growth of women’s reproductive organs. Its ability to mimic estrogen has been suggested as a possible cause of breast cancer, uterine cancer, endometriosis, and fertility issues. Parabens are another ingredient that mimics estrogen, although more research is being done on side effects. PABA is also a known skin irritant that causes one of the highest rates of allergic reactions among those who use chemical sunscreen. A non-PABA sunscreen can prevent irritation on highly-sensitive skin.

So how do you protect your skin from the sun and chemical irritants? Physical sunscreens, also known as safe sunscreens are a great alternative for those who want to commit to healthy, radiant skin.

idea bulb

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL SUNSCREENS?

There are two types of active ingredients in sunscreens— mineral and chemical filters. Our physical sunscreen uses minerals like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or a mixture of both to create a protective barrier against the sun. Chemical sunscreens use active chemical ingredients to absorb UV radiation before it gets to the skin. Chemical sunscreens typically cause more allergic reactions.

WHERE CAN I FIND SAFE SUNSCREEN?

Our safe, hypoallergenic sunscreen powders use mineral filters to reflect the sun’s harmful UV rays.
