Benefits: Because zinc oxide is a metal that’s been oxidized, sunscreens containing it are considered mineral rather than chemical, and are therefore more natural than most of the sunscreens currently on the market. Along with providing immediate, natural, and safe protection for our skin, zinc can provide other benefits to boost your natural glow and great for sensitive or acne prone skin. Many of the antioxidants can protect your skin from free radical damage. Sunscreen is 100% necessary when spending any time in the sun. Sun protection should be a key component of your daily routine to keep your skin safe from toxins while protecting you from harmful UVA/UVB rays. Zinc oxide is a physical sunscreen that, unlike chemical sunscreen that uses ingredients to absorb UVA/UVB rays it sits on your skin as a barrier against UV rays. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, can disrupt hormones and aggravate skin issues like rosacea and acne. The oils that are added will hydrate and nourish the skin.
