About Micronized Zinc Oxide:
Micronized Zinc Oxide is the metal zinc that has been oxidized into a powder form. It is the safest & most effective single active sunscreen ingredient. When you apply zinc oxide sunscreen, the particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, where they scatter and absorb ultraviolet radiation, protecting your living skin below. Zinc oxide is unique among sunscreen ingredients in that it is truly a broad spectrum blocker, protecting you from UVA, UVB and UVC.
Like we said, your health and safety is our number one priority, just like the companies that make the products we carry.
“Our philosophy flows from the ground up. We believe in using botanical ingredients that are grown in healthy soil and processed simply without the use of chemicals. Ingredients like these are filled with life force. They make for better products, for healthier people, and for a healthier planet.”
