Why should I use a mineral sunscreen?
1) Mineral sunscreens reflect UVA/UVB rays away from the skin, whereas chemical filters work by absorbing the rays into the skin, converting them to heat, and then releasing them from the body.
2) Mineral sunscreens are gentle and non-irritating to the skin.
3) Mineral sunscreens lay on top of the skin, and do not penetrate the skin or get into the bloodstream. Recent studies have shown that some chemical sunscreen filters do penetrate the skin and get into the bloodstream.
