We’ve been getting a lot of questions recently about what sunscreens we recommend.
We always suggest Physical sunscreens that contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Physical sunscreens are made of natural compounds that sit on the surface of the skin. They work to absorb and deflect sunlight so UV radiation doesn’t penetrate the skin. They protect from the sun as soon as applied, last longer when in direct UV light, and work great for sensitive skin.
Benefits of Zinc Oxide
- won’t leave a chalky white residue on the skin
- gentle on skin
- blocks out short & long UVA rays and all UVB rays
Benefits of Titanium
- great for darker skin, as it doesn’t leave an opaque layer
- gentle on skin, works wonderfully for those with sensitive skin
- effective at blocking short-wave UVA & UVB (casual daily sun exposure)
