Also, zinc oxide is the key active in our Super Sun SPF50 and that is anti-inflammatory so it soothes irritation and redness. The Zinc also helps to regulate sebum levels.

Oily: After you wait a minute to let Super Sun SPF50 absorb
follow with a Mineral Powder or Powder compact.
Physical SPF, also known as mineral, sits on top of the skin
and reflects the sun’s rays without penetrating the deeper layers of the skin.
Chemical SPF absorbs into the skin and then absorbs UV rays,
converts the rays into heat, and releases them from the body. Testing showed
that from just a single application it increased the blood levels of the
actives in chemical SPF for days & even weeks.

Oxybenzone is used in many sunscreens as a UVB and UVA filter, the issue is, it is absorbed through the skin which has been associated to hormone disruptors. In addition, it’s been such a common trigger for allergic reactions that it has been named the Allergen of the Year by the American Academy of Dermatology. Sunny Skin’s products are oxybenzone-free and instead use safe ingredients that provide broad spectrum protection.
