Type: Ingredient

Definition: Zinc oxide, on the other hand, contains a micro-fine formulation that avoids any type of whitening effect. More than that, this ingredient provides both UVA and UVB protection, blocking even more UVR than titanium dioxide. However, bear in mind that no sunscreen is 'waterproof' ever, so no matter what, it is crucial to reapply your sunscreen.
