Physical vs Chemical Sunscreen

Which one should I use?

Chemical vs Physical (Mineral) Sunscreens

Chemical vs Physical? Sunscreen is important for skin care as it prevents anti-aging and protects against damages produced by UV rays. Chemical sunscreens use chemical compounds to protect the skin from the sun while physical ones block rays with mineral ingredients.

Physical sunscreens

Physical sunscreens, also referred to as mineral or natural sunscreens, contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which are active mineral ingredients. These minerals work as natural broad spectrum blockers, reflecting the sun’s harmful rays. This means you are protected against UVA/UVB rays, as they remain on the surface of your skin and aren't absorbed.

Chemical sunscreens

Chemical sunscreens contain active ingredients such as oxybenzone, octinoxate, homosalate and octocrylene that absorb into the skin to protect from UV rays. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) catalogs these ingredients as toxic, as they can be harmful to both humans and coral reefs.

So which one is better?
Before choosing either mineral or chemical sunscreens think about:
  • SPF protection
  • Broad spectrum protection
  • Ingredients
  • Fragrance
  • Paraben free
  • Skin type
  • Environment
Choosing the best sunscreen for you depends on your needs and what you are looking for!
