The best sunscreen in the world!
As a single ingredient, zinc oxide is the broadest range sunscreen on the market. Both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide have a long history of safe use as a sun block and cosmetic ingredient. They are not irritating and more compatible with sensitive skin than chemical sunscreens. In fact, zinc oxide is a skin protectant and anti-irritant, and is widely used in treating various forms of dermatitis/skin irritation, including diaper rash.
A note about the Orange Oil in our formula:
Most people are not aware that there are two kinds of orange oil - sweet orange oil and bitter orange oil. It is bitter orange oil that can cause photosensitivity if applied directly on skin in its undiluted, concentrated form. We use sweet orange oil in our sunscreen. Small amount of it that we use for fragrance (about 2%) is safe and does not cause photo sensitivity. According to some sources, essential oil of orange has mild anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a topical agent to help calm skin inflammations and irritations, as well as itching due to bug bites, poison ivy or poison oak.
A note about Vitamin A in our formula:
The esters from essential fatty acids in vitamin A need to be converted to retinoic acid before being active and photosensitive. In addition the vitamin A in our synergistic formula is coated with peptides which further reduces a possibility of photo sensitivity. Also, please note that there are various forms of vitamin A.
Vitamin A does have a few benefits: it helps to protect the skin from free radical damage, helps speeding the cell renewal process, minor burns and scrapes, and also helps reduce wrinkles and stretch marks.
