Another excellent chemical-free sun protection option is TiZO3® Facial Mineral Sunscree
The photo-stable SPF won’t break down in intense sunlight and remains water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, making it perfect for any outdoor activity. It uses only Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide for sun protection and is free of chemical sunscreen filters, dyes, fragrances, oils and preservatives. The mineral sunscreen ingredients found in TIZO products block both UVA (responsible for “A”ging) and UVB (responsible for “B”urning) rays.
In fact, Zinc Oxide, found in all TIZO Protection products, has the broadest UV coverage range of any FDA-approved sunscreen ingredient.The chemical UV filters found in the majority of available sunscreens (including some combination of oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate) work by absorbing UV rays.
Unfortunately, some of these chemicals are also absorbed by the body. The biggest offender is oxybenzone, a known allergen and hormone disruptor that enters through the skin. TIZO mineral-based products are completely free of chemical sunscreen filters.
In addition to potential harm to the body, in 2015, it was estimated that around 14,000 tons of sunscreen are ending up in the world’s coral reefs causing major damage. The chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate are the main culprits. TIZO’s mineral sunscreens are free of these harmful ingredients as well as all chemical absorbers.
When you’re outdoors in the summer sun, you don’t want to use your usual lip gloss–because lips, too, are susceptible to sunburn and sun damage. With SPF 45, TIZO® Tinted Lip Protection offers serious protection and has a light sheer tint that delivers a low maintenance high style look. The subtle kiwi lime and ginger flavor makes it pleasant to use.
