Zinc Oxide is naturally water resistant, and our powdered formula is great for scalps, oily skin, and when perspiration will occur such as hiking or exercising. Some experts say that 56% of chemicals put on your skin will enter your bloodstream. That is important to know when deciding what to put on your skin. Our sunscreen is made with all natural Zinc Oxide which is considered one of the safest active sunscreens available.
Zinc Oxide is considered a sunblock and filters UVA and UV rays.Many healthcare practitioners believe that a Sun Protection Factor of 15 (SPF 15) is all that is needed for overall protection from the sun. A SPF 15 blocks 93.3% of the sun’s UVB rays, while an SPF 30 blocks 96.7 %. Therefore, our SPF 20 provides a level of maximal screening of the sun’s rays, and SPF values above this point give less and less added protection.
