When buying sunscreen, protection from UV rays should be your top consideration. Natural sunscreen delivers the best UVA and UVB protection (also known as broad-spectrum coverage)
Use active mineral ingredients, such as Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. They reflect the sun’s rays like a mirror to protect exposed skin. Mineral active ingredients do not break down as readily in the sun as chemical ingredients.
Use a combination of two to six of these active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate. They absorb rays in a chemical reaction that dissipates the heat back off the skin.
