Why Is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide The Safest, Most Effective Sunblock Ingredient?
First, we’ll explain what this ingredient is by breaking it down into its two parts: non-nano and zinc oxide.
What Is Zinc Oxide?
Zinc oxide sits on top of your skin (rather than soaking in, like chemical sunscreens do) and protects you by scattering, absorbing, and reflecting the sun’s rays.
It can stand alone as a sunblock because it is truly effective against UVA, UVB, and even UVC rays — this is called a “broad-spectrum blocker.” But zinc oxide isn’t just effective at blocking the sun! It’s also good for your skin.
What Does Non-Nano Mean?
Let’s put this into really simple terms: a nanoparticle is super small. Non-nano refers to particles that aren’t so tiny. And, it turns out, non-nano is what you want when it comes to mineral sunscreen.
Why is mineral sunscreen safer than chemical sunscreen?
The active ingredients in chemical sunscreen can damage your body as they soak in through your skin. Plus, they can be bad for the sea creatures we love so much!
In addition to containing skin-healthy ingredients like zinc oxide, it’s also free from synthetic perfumes and formulated for even the most sensitive of baby skin.
