What You Need to Know About Mineral Sunscreen

Over the last few decades, we've learned a lot about the sun's harmful rays. A tan was once touted as being healthy, yet now we know that too much sun exposure causes a number of problems, including wrinkles and skin cancer. With so many sun protection options now available, it can be difficult to navigate through the sunscreen choices. One thing is for sure, mineral sunscreen outweighs the lotions when it comes to protection, ingredients, and ease of use. 

As a mineral sunscreen, Brush On Block® does not contain harmful chemical ingredients. Made with active titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, along with soothing botanicals and antioxidants, you get full spectrum protection from UVA, UVB, and IRA rays. Unlike chemical SPF, Brush on Block offers immediate and long-lasting protection. With the self-dispensing applicator, Brush On Block is easy to use and transport for effortless applications under or over makeup. You can even use it in place of makeup on days when you just want to keep it light. 

Mineral sunscreen is less irritating than chemical sunscreen, especially if you have sensitive skin. Chemical sunscreens can trigger allergies and other skin reactions, in addition to long-term health risks. Since the natural minerals in Brush On Block aren't absorbed into the skin, they are much less likely to cause irritation. Brush On Block is perfect for everyday use and safe for children, too.

In addition to being good for you, mineral sunscreen like Brush On Block is also good for the planet. Since these minerals come from the earth, they can safely return to the earth after use. Recent studies indicate that chemical sunscreens can be damaging to coral reefs, which serve as homes to 25 percent of all ocean life. We can prevent this from happening by simply switching to Brush On Block. Protect yourself and your environment by choosing Brush On Block.
