WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Keep an eye out for zinc, titanium, avobenzone or Mexoryl SX on the ingredients label. These substances remain largely on the skin, protecting it from both UVB and UVA radiation. However, it’s worth remembering that the use of zinc nanoparticles in sunscreens remains a contentious issue, although EWG maintains that many zinc and titanium-based sunscreens are among the safest and most effective sunscreens on the market. Broad Spectrum Look for sunscreens that offer protection against both UVA and UVB lights. Products carrying the term ‘broad spectrum’ are your best bet.
