Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
You may have more questions about mineral sunscreens and their benefits. We have gathered the most common queries to help you with your research.
What is the Difference Between Chemical and Mineral Sunscreen?
While both offer protection against the sun, chemical and mineral sunscreens primarily differ in how they function to provide you with the protection you need.
Chemical sunscreens penetrate and protect your skin to dissipate UV rays.
On the other hand, mineral sunscreens stay on top of your skin to reflect UV rays away from your body and protect you from the sun.
Is Zinc Oxide Good for Skin?
Zinc oxide is good for the skin since it helps treat or prevent skin irritation. This is good for burns, cuts, or diaper rash.
Some can also be used to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays, making them a great addition to sunscreens. They are a convenient, powerful means of preventing sunburn.
Can Adults Use Kids Sunscreen?
Yes, adults can use kids' sunscreen. Most sunscreens are formulated the same way, making them safe for use.
However, it is still preferable to use sunscreen specifically formulated for adult skin as these have ingredients that will leave a different finish on your skin.
Does Mineral Sunscreen Expire?
Like most products, mineral sunscreen expires, which should be stated on its packaging.
The most significant risk of using an old bottle of mineral sunscreen is its reduced SPF, which will not provide the necessary protection against sunlight and UV rays.
While the minerals will not degrade, other stabilizers within the formula will go bad over time, making the sunscreen lose its effectiveness.
Is Mineral Sunscreen OK for Kids?
Mineral sunscreen is recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians for kids with dry skin or eczema. Ensure the sunscreen contains titanium dioxide or zinc oxide to help nourish their skin.
What is the Difference Between Kids and Adult Sunscreen?
There is no real difference between kids and adult sunscreen. They both provide the same protection and contain the same ingredients.
The main difference between the two types of sunscreen may be their finish, as adult sunscreen does have a cosmetic aspect to it. They may have a different texture and finish. However, they have the same functions.
Is Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Safe?
Zinc oxide is one of the best and safest active ingredients you can have in your sunscreen since it is a critical mineral nutrient that helps keep you healthy.
These are tested and FDA-approved for use on babies under six months old and will not cause stinging when applied around the eyes.
