We're putting them to the test: Mineral vs Chemical SPF 🌞 Swipe to learn about the pros + cons of each and learn more about our NEW Mineral Defense SPF 💛
The research is clear:
SPF should be apart of your daily skin care regimen to protect your skin against UV damage. With so many options out there, how do you know which is best for you? There are two main types — Chemical and Mineral — and each type has pros and cons. We're breaking down everything you need to know.
Chemical SPF contains organic carbon-based compounds that create a chemical reaction once applied to the skin.
They work by absorbing UV rays, converting them into non-damaging heat, and are then released by the skin via the bloodstream.
Mineral SPF(also known asphysical sunscreen) contains two active mineral ingredients, Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide, which work by sitting on top of the skin to deflect away damaging UV rays.
