Did you know most sunscreens on the market contain chemical ingredients that can cause more harm than good? As awareness of skin health, shrinking reefs & non-toxic living grows more consumers are turning to non-nano zinc oxide sunscreens to protect their families without the risks of certain chemicals in sunscreens. 

What is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide?

Zinc oxide is a mineral that has been used for centuries in various skin treatments and products due to its soothing and protective properties. In sunscreens, zinc oxide acts as a physical blocker, sitting on the skin’s surface and reflecting UV radiation.

The term “non-nano” refers to the size of the zinc oxide particles used in the sunscreen. Nanoparticles are defined as particles smaller than 100 nanometers. Non-nano zinc oxide particles are larger, typically ranging between 100 and 200 nanometers. This distinction is crucial for several reasons related to safety and efficacy.

Benefits of Non-Nano Zinc Sunscreen

1. Effective UV Protection: Non-nano zinc oxide provides broad-spectrum protection, effectively blocking both UVA and UVB rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens that absorb UV radiation, zinc oxide reflects and scatters the radiation, offering immediate protection upon application.

2. Low Risk of Absorption: Due to the larger particle size, non-nano zinc oxide remains on the skin’s surface rather than being absorbed into the bloodstream. This minimizes the health risks associated with the absorption of chemical sunscreen ingredients. Making this a great choice for all – especially those with sensitive skin, prone to eczema, babies or pregnant & nursing mothers! 

3. Reef-Safe: Many chemical sunscreens contain ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been shown to harm coral reefs and marine life – so sad! But have no fear, Non-nano zinc oxide is considered reef safe! ( a step further than “reef friendly” which can still cause harm) 

Thank you for taking the time to read this article. I hope you consider choosing Non Nano-Zinc Oxide to protect your families skin & our beloved reefs this summer!
