Natural Sun Filters

Natural Sun Filter
Natural sunscreens rely upon the use of physical sunscreen filters such as Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. They sit on top of the skin providing a barrier against UV rays. They work by scattering, deflecting and absorbing the UV rays, protecting the skin and preventing any harm.
Chemical sun filters work by being absorbed into the skin’s top layer and deflecting UV rays or absorbing their energy and converting them into something harmless.

Zinc Oxide
Zinc oxide is the safest most effective single active sunscreen ingredient. Zinc oxide is a broad spectrum blocker as it protects from UVA, UVB and UVC rays. It does not enter the body through the skin. It has also been traditionally used in skin creams to treat conditions such as wet eczema.

Titanium dioxide
Micro fine Titanium Dioxide is accepted as a safe Sun Barrier all around the world because it is inorganic and has a record of having no adverse reaction to it. This makes it an ideal in products which are used on a daily basis.
