What is the difference between Mineral and Chemical Sunscreen?

The active sun protection ingredients are the main difference between the two.

Our Clearscreen sunscreens use active ingredients (also commonly referred to as “chemicals”) designed to absorb and dissipate UVA/UVB rays (by converting them into heat), while our Mineral Sunscreens use mineral (also commonly referred to as “physical”) active ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays.
Our Clearscreen sunscreen should be applied at least 30 minutes before sun exposure, while our mineral sunscreens are effective right after application. All of our formulations, both chemical and mineral, guarantee broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
