Fun Facts about SPF
- Physical SPF products contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Physical SPF "block" or "scatter" the sun rays away from the skin. These ingredients are also considered to be Broad Spectrum SPF which protects against UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) sun rays.
- Chemical SPF products are made in laboratories with ingredients such as cinnamates, oxybenzone, etc. They are said to reduce sun damage by absorbing UV rays and robbing them of their harmful power.
The higher the number SPF is not always better, so remember no matter the number SPF it is crucial to reapply throughout a day of enjoying the sun!
