What are Safe SPF Ingredients for Sunscreen Lotions and Creams?
Summertime brings bright sunny days, clear skies, and fun-outdoor activities. If you’re ready to hit the beach or shop at your favorite store in town, it’s important to remember to stay safe in the sun by applying a generous amount of SPF on your face and body.
Many brands offer sunscreen lotions and creams to help protect your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that cause sunburn, sunspots, and even cancer. But how clean are these sunscreen products and are they made with safe SPF ingredients?
If your brand is looking to create hydrating sunscreen lotions and creams with safe SPF ingredients, here are two ingredients you must always use.
A naturally occurring UV absorber is zinc oxide. When it’s a non-nanoparticle, it offers broad-spectrum coverage and is safe for the environment and humans.
Found in Earth’s crust, titanium dioxide is mineral that absorbs UVB rays and some UVA rays. It’s safe when used as a non-nanoparticle.
Are These Ingredients Safe for Skin Allergies?
When formulating sunscreen products for people with skin allergies, always go with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Chemical-based ingredients such as para-aminobenzoic, oxybenzone, or sulisobenzone can cause the skin to become irritated and allergic reactions to occur. You should also avoid incorporating fragrances, preservatives, and alcohol-based ingredients into sensitive skin sunscreen products.
