Chemical vs Physical Sunblock?
Do you know the difference? Which is the right for you?
Staying out of the sun is the best way to keep your skin looking young and vibrant. Its proven that wearing Sun Protection will reverse the aging process. Even better protect against skin cancer. Sun protection must be applied every 60 minutes if you are continually in the sun for any extended period of time.
Sun Shield Mineral Moisture Creme
Physical sunscreens protect your skin from the sun by deflecting or blocking the sun’s rays. Using Natural UV Filters: Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide. If you don’t want to use chemical products this is the sunblock for you.
This soothing Aloe Vera based moisture creme nourishes and protects skin with a light reflective shield of Titanium and Zinc. Lightly tinted with mineral micas, this creme blends seemlessly into the skin without any heavy residue or greasiness. This silicone free formulation is ideal for oily, combination skin types and it is non comoedogenic.
Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 14.5 %, Titanium Dioxide -2.0 % Other Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Citrus Extract, Acadia Gum (and) Illicium Verum (Star Anise) Extract. Lavender Essential Oil, Iron Oxide (and) Mica.
Comedogenicity:Titanium dioxide can be problematic for some people. (If you break out from mineral make up and physical sunscreen, titanium dioxide could be the culprit.) Zinc oxide is safe. It can be used on delicate skin and is a main ingredient in diaper rash cream.
Protection: Titanium dioxide protects against UVB rays, but not the full spectrum of UVA rays. Zinc oxide protects against the entire spectrum of UVB and UVA rays. It starts protecting immediately upon application.
Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing the sun’s rays. Some chemical filters can scatter sun rays, but still mostly just absorb them. Just Jack Natural Skincare uses chemical sunblock along with organic vitamins and aloe leaf juice to nourish the skin.
Active Ingredients: Octisalate 5%, Oxybenzone 4%, Homosalate 10%, Octinoxate 7.5%
Other Ingredients: Aloe baradensis leaf juice, (vitamin D, A, E).
Comedogenicity: Chemical filters tend to be more irritating to skin. If it gets in your eyes, it can make your eyes sting and water. Some can cause allergic reactions.
Protection: Chemical filters offer more coverage against UVA and UVB rays than physical sunscreens, but the range of protection will depend on the particular active and its stability. Avobenzone, for example, protects against the full spectrum UVA rays. Must wait 20 minutes after application for effective sun protection.
