As you may know, there are different types of filters you can use for sun protection. Here is a short recap of the difference and how you should think when choosing your SPF. 

Sun factor filters are normally divided into two categories, mineral filters and synthetic filters. These different filter combinations are often discussed and compared against each other. 

The only difference is basically what they are made of. Mineral filters are made from inorganic natural ingredients titanium dioxide and zinc oxzide. Synthetic filters are made from synthetic chemicals. Both filter variations stay on the surface of the skin and absorb about 85% of the UV energy. The remaining 15% is scattered.

Generally, they do the same thing, protecting your skin from the sun.

We use synthetic filters in our products because they are more user friendly, lighter and don’t leave a white cast on your skin. We have been careful in our selection of filters and use modern combinations for a broad UV protection.

We don’t use Benzophenone, Homosalate, Octinoxate and Oxybenzone in our formulations. 

• Thick texture
• Leaves a white cast
• Good for super sensitive skin

• Light texture
• No cast - Invisible protection
• Better UVA protection
• Some synthetic ingredients can cause irritation on super sensitive skin
