Sunscreen is probably the most important part of your daily skincare routine. That’s why we spent years developing a sunscreen that compliments the rest of our collections, but is also suited to all skin types. We designed our SPF 30 mineral sunscreen with sensitive skin in mind, which allows everyone to benefit from H2O+ sun protection.
We put together some common questions about our new product to provide you with a little more info.
What’s a Mineral Sunscreen?
Chemical sunscreens use chemicals to filter out damaging UV rays, while our mineral sunscreen physically blocks ultraviolet radiation with non-nano zinc oxide. Chemical sunscreens use ingredients like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, and octisalate, which can cause allergic reactions and can be hard on sensitive skin. While mineral sunscreen is as effective as chemical sunscreen, it is much more rare in the market.
In addition to non-nano zinc oxide, we added Green Tea Extract, featured in our Hydration Sensitive Collection. This extract is rich in EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a strong antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors.
So when you apply this sunscreen, you’re also protecting your skin from factors like pollution, and even blue light damage from working at a computer all day.
What are the main ingredients?
Non-Nano Zinc Oxide
