There are two types of sunscreens – chemical absorbers and physical blockers. Chemical sunscreens are the most common and work by first penetrating the skin and then “absorbing” the UV light that comes in. Because both UVA and UVB rays need to be blocked, most chemical sunscreens use a combination of chemicals together to work.
Physical blockers, like Sunforgettable mineral sunscreen, work by physically deflecting UV rays away from skin. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the only two natural minerals that do this. Early formulations were considered problematic as the “white” zinc mineral became a bright white paste on skin and both looked and felt unappealing.
