Organic Filters:  

Great for all skin types, darker skin and people who have active lifestyles. 

Organic filters penetrate skin and absorb UV rays like a sponge.  They are also water resistant and absorb quickly in to the skin.

Mineral Filters

Great for children, those with sensitive skin and anyone who has post-procedure skin. 

Mineral Filters sit on top of the skin to block UV rays like a shield.  A natural mineral filter is Zinc Oxide and you will find it in all of SkinCeuticals 100% mineral sunscreens.  This type of sunscreen is a great chemical free option, and is so gentle that children over 6 months can use it.

No matter what sunscreen you choose, it’s important that you keep your skin protected from the harmful rays of the sun.  Your skin will thank you later in life when you don’t have sun spots, wrinkles and sagging skin!

Speaking of coverage, keep that hair color covered when out in the sun.  A pretty hat like the one below will keep your hair color beautiful and keep your hair from drying out!
