We do not use collagen in any of our products, as it does not penetrate the skin. Our skin care line does include many active ingredients, such as Multi-Peptide Complex, to help boost collagen production.

The bismuth oxychloride is in the Ultra Zinc to enhance its dewy finish. Bismuth Oxychloride may be an irritant to some when the powder is applied directly to the skin, or in products with high percentages (>20%), like pressed face powders. However, when used in blended liquid products, irritancy drops significantly or to non-existent.

Our product, TiZO Ultra Zinc -Tinted was clinically tested by a 3rd party for irritation potential. This test “Assessment of Skin Primary and Cumulative Irritation Potential and Skin Sensitization Potential” was performed on 50 subjects having the following results:

• The product did not induce a skin primary and cumulative irritation in the study group.
• The product did not induce skin sensitization in the study group.
• The product is considered safe.

Conclusion: Our product is not irritating and does not cause sensitization.

We do not use palm oil sourced raw materials or any palm derivatives in our products

• Titanium Dioxide is a very safe and effective sunscreen ingredient. It is one of only two (2) active sunscreen ingredients that are currently regarded by the Food & Drug Administration as GRASE (Generally Regarded as Safe and Effective). The other is Zinc Oxide. Titanium Dioxide applied topically does not absorb into the skin, and does not absorb into the bloodstream, so it does not have safety concerns.

• The concerns that have been raised in the lawsuit against Mars (maker of Skittles) and in the European ban relate specifically to titanium dioxide’s use as a food additive, where it is ingested. It is a totally different situation than a topically applied sunscreen that remains on top of the skin. The EU has not banned titanium dioxide in cosmetics.

• However, the EU has restricted the use of titanium dioxide in loose powders and aerosols, given concerns about loose titanium dioxide particles being inhaled into the body. TiZO does not sell any spray or loose powder sunscreens because of this concern.

The Environmental Skin Protectant is safe to use on your face! This product is non-comedogenic as well as oil free. ***THIS PRODUCT HAS YET TO BE TESTED FOR NON-COMEDOGENICY***

TiZO Environmental Skin Protectant does not contain any steroids or other anti-inflammatory drugs. Skin Protectants are considered to be over-the-counter (OTC) drugs by the FDA. The protective/active ingredient is dimethicone 3%.

FDA labeling regulations for this type of product state that you should consult your physician if you have symptoms that last longer than 7 days. But there is not a stated limit on use of the product.

Thanks for your questions about TiZO Environmental Skin Protectant. This is a wonderful product that is really designed to protect the skin from chafing, cold and wind. While it does help to relieve chapped skin when that occurs, it really isn’t intended to be used as part of an ongoing skin regimen.

If you are using azelaic acid to treat a condition such as rosacea or acne, we’d recommend that you ask your physician about using it with TiZO Environmental Skin Protectant. Glycolic acid and retinol can at times be irritating, so they could counteract the soothing and protective benefits you are getting from TiZO Environmental Skin Protectant.

Thanks for reaching out with your question about TiZO. There is unfortunately no clear-cut definition of what is “Reef Safe” or “Reef Friendly,” which is how we describe our products. There are a few things, though, that all agree you want to watch out for. Oxybenzone and octinoxate are the two ingredients which have specifically been implicated in reef degradation and are the two ingredients that have been banned by those locations that have enacted bans. Since all chemical sunscreen filters act by the same mechanism, most reef-advocates suggest that you avoid other chemical sunscreens as well.

The mineral sunscreens Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are preferred from a reef-friendly standpoint, but you want to be sure that they are coated and non-nano. The mineral sunscreen particles used in TiZO are an array of sizes in their raw form, but are always coated and are non-nano as used in the product. So they are considered Reef-Friendly.

If you have a client that is still uncomfortable, you might want to suggest one of our formulas that contains only zinc oxide. TiZO AM Replenish has a feel similar to TiZO3, but contains ceramides and 16% zinc oxide and is a bit more moisturizing. ULTRA ZINC (tinted or non-tinted) is 20% zinc oxide and gives a moisturizing, slightly dewy finish. Both blend beautifully and are virtually invisible in use.
