Mineral sunscreen is a good alternative to chemical sunscreen. It uses active mineral agents such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to reflect the sun’s light away from the skin. Not only are the ingredients in mineral sunscreen safer for humans while zinc oxide is the only active sunscreen ingredient approved for use on children, but mineral sunscreens are also safer for the environment.
Apply by dispensing a quarter sized amount onto palms and rub together to warm the product. Since it isn't absorbed into the skin, you'll need to pat rather than rub into the skin! This will make sure you get total coverage as well and also not giving you the snow man look that most zinc based screens do!
