Best Mineral Sunscreen

Mineral Sunscreen

Mineral sunscreen, also known as physical sunscreens, are a safe choice for your skin.

They contain active mineral ingredients such as zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. These minerals work by sitting on top of the skin to deflect and scatter damaging UV rays away from the skin. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, contain organic compounds that create a chemical reaction and transform UV rays into heat, then release that heat from the skin.


  • Mineral sunscreens provide broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, offering a comprehensive shield against both UVA and UVB radiation, the two types of ultraviolet light that can cause skin damage. This comprehensive coverage helps prevent sunburn and premature ageing and reduces the risk of skin cancer, providing a sense of reassurance and comfort.
  • Mineral sunscreens are often non-comedogenic, meaning they are formulated to prevent blocked pores and are less likely to cause acne or worsen existing acne. This type of sunscreen is often recommended for individuals with acne-prone or sensitive skin and helps to reduce skin irritation.
  • Photostability: Mineral sunscreens containing active ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide maintain their effectiveness when exposed to sunlight. This stability ensures that the sunscreen continues to provide reliable protection against UV rays for an extended period, making it a dependable choice for sun protection.
