Perhaps zinc’s greatest reputation is its role as a natural alternative to chemical formulations. Chemical ingredients in sunscreen often cause irritation or allergic reactions, particularly on sensitive skin. There are numerous ways that zinc oxide works on the skin to block sun damage from UVA and UVB rays
Because zinc is a mineral, it sits on top of the skin and reflects the sun. Provides a physical barrier to the sun.
The natural sun-protecting benefits of zinc oxide have been the focus of much research. Zinc oxide has been found to offer protection against broad spectrum ultraviolet rays.Today zinc oxide is added to many more products beyond sunscreen.
How effective zinc oxide products are for repelling the sun
How strongly a product prevents sunburn depends on how much zinc oxide is used in the product. Percentages of zinc oxide vary, and the final percentage will determine the products specified SPF level.
In sunscreens, zinc oxide percentages are around 25 to 30 percent.
The less zinc oxide that is used, the shorter the window of protection. SPF 15 will therefore last for less time than SPF 30, which contains more zinc.
Of course our Sunscreen Powder is 100% Zinc Oxide and will provide the maximum protection minus the nasty chemicals!
