Mineral Sunscreens: Your Questions Answered by Experts
What's the difference between mineral sunscreen and regular?
Mineral sunscreens work by forming a ‘shield’ on top of the skin, helping to deflect the sun’s rays. Meanwhile, chemical sunscreens are absorbed into the skin. They help turn UV radiation into dispersed heat.
Which mineral-based sunscreen is best?
Eryfotona Actinica is an SPF 50+ 100% mineral sunscreen offering broad spectrum protection. Eryfotona Actinica uses zinc oxide to protect the skin from the sun. But unlike some mineral sun protection creams, it melts into the skin with no oily, greasy finish.
Looking for natural coverage? Eryfotona Ageless is an ultralight tinted mineral sunscreen providing SPF 50 broad spectrum protection. The versatile tint helps skin look more even in tone.
Is mineral sunscreen really better than chemical?
Many dermatologists recommend using mineral sunscreens with active ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide and zinc sunscreen formulas are generally suitable for a wide range of skin types, including sensitive skin.
