Prevent early skin aging caused by the sun AND avoid sunburns AND lower your risk of skin cancer- We say YES! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), skin cancer is the “most common type of cancer in the United States.” Everyone discusses the importance of putting sunscreen on; however, do you know what is in your sunscreen?
What is the difference: Zinc Sunscreen vs. Chemical Sunscreen?
Why choose Zinc Sunscreen? Because of recent studies showing that chemical sunscreen can be absorbed into the bloodstream beyond safe levels, we think it’s best to avoid chemical sunscreen ingredients such as Oxybenzone, avobenzone, Octinoxate, Octocrylene, Homosalate, and Octisalate. These ingredients might irritate sensitive skin, disrupt your hormones. And who wants these chemicals floating around in their bodies?
Unlike Chemical Sunscreen, Natural Sunscreen, physically blocks the sun with mineral zinc oxide. The benefits of Zinc Sunscreen include natural protection without chemical sunscreen ingredients and avoids toxicity levels absorption. Zinc Sunscreens undergo the same SPF testing as chemical sunscreen for effectiveness; therefore, if a Zinc Sunscreen says SPF 30—it has most likely tested to at least SPF 32-34 protection value.
Zinc Sunscreen and Your Make-Up or Tinted Moisturizers
There are ways to protect your skin without compromising your make-up or tinted moisturizer coverage. Incorporating products such as Juice Beauty’s Stem Cellular CC Cream gives you a glow, protects with Mineral Zinc SPF, has broad spectrum sun protection without harmful chemical sunscreen ingredients, silicones, or dimethicones, and is a wonderful multi-tasker moisturizer.
We encourage you to review the ingredients on the back of your current SPF and avoid the chemical sunscreens, silicones, and dimethicones. Choose good and fabulous organic ingredients and luxurious and safe sunscreen that protects your overall well-being!
