Why add Zinc oxide to your skin care routine?
Zinc oxide is a mineral compound that is used as a physical sunscreen agent. It provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, making it an effective ingredient in sunscreens. Zinc oxide works by sitting on top of the skin and forming a protective barrier that reflects and scatters harmful UV rays away from the skin. It is one of the safest and most effective sunscreen ingredients available and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
