Natural Sun Blocker

Zinc oxide is found in the Earth’s crust as natural mineral zincite, which it is produced when it is combined with oxygen molecules. Upon application, zinc oxide particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, where they scatter, absorb, and reflect ultraviolet radiation, protecting your living skin below. Zinc oxide is unique among sunscreen ingredients in that it is truly a broad-spectrum blocker, protecting from UVA + UVB.
