How to Choose UV Protection: Physical Sunscreen vs. Chemical Sunscreen?


Physical sunscreen
Sometimes called mineral sunscreen, contains tiny mineral particles which sit on top of your skin and act as filters, physically reflecting and deflecting the sun’s rays. The main active ingredients used in mineral sunscreen are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Zinc oxide sunscreen is often recommended as the safest and most environmentally friendly.

Chemical sunscreen
A conventional sunscreen which protects you from the UV rays of the sun by first absorbing into your skin, and then absorbing and transforming UV rays into heat, which is then released into the air. This is done using active ingredients like avobenzone, octinoxate or oxybenzone, which are all organic (carbon-based) compounds.
