If you’re looking for a natural sunscreen, then chances are zinc oxide is the key ingredient.  Unlike chemical sunscreens that are absorbed by the skin, zinc oxide proves a physical barrier and broad-spectrum protection against damaging UVA and UVB rays.  The zinc oxide we use is non-nano, meaning the particles are too large to enter the bloodstream.  Aside from helping to protect your skin in the sun, zinc oxide also encourages the skin to heal and can even help to clear up acne.
