Chemical vs Mineral Suncream
Chemical sunscreens have ingredients (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate) that may potentially cause health problems. According to some recent research they seep through the skin into the bloodstream after only a couple of hours. These chemicals persist in the blood for up to seven days and exceed, by up to 40 times, the allowed limits.
Mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, use two natural minerals - zinc oxide and titanium dioxide - as active ingredients. These minerals simply sit on top of your skin and protect it by reflecting away UV rays. The American authorities (FDA) have defined these filters Generally regarded as safe and effective.
For these and many other reasons, Sol De Ibiza has chosen Non-Nano Zinc Oxide as a sunscreen filter.
