TITANIUM DIXOIDE, 4%
Titanium dioxide is a natural, physical, inorganic mineral that provides broad spectrum protection from
UVA and UVB rays. The purpose of large particle titanium is to give opacity to the products containing
it, and to lighten (or whiten) their color. Opaque titanium dioxide highly reflects and strongly scatters
all UV and visible rays. It also reflects much of the skin-damaging infrared waves, keeping the skin
cooler, reducing heat damage and its subsequent photoaging.
ZINC OXIDE, 4%
Zinc oxide is a natural, physical, inorganic mineral that provides broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays. Zinc
oxide works to both complement titanium dioxide’s protection and extend photoprotection to the skin where titanium
dioxide is insucient. Zinc Oxide has been known and used topically for centuries as a skin protectant and wound
healing adjuvant and is a recognized mild antimicrobial agent. It also reflects much of the skin-damaging infrared waves,
keeping the skin cooler, reducing heat damage and its subsequent photoaging.
Used in the synthesis of natural skin sterols essential for maintaining skin barrier function, Squalane, derived from olives,
is a biological component of human sebum and is therefore very skin friendly. It is an excellent moisturizer that does not
leave a heavy, greasy residue on the skin.

FERULIC ACID (FERULOYL SOY GLYCERIDES)
This potent antioxidant, found in plants, increases stability of vitamin C and E as well as adding photo-protection. This
ingredient also provides additional protection against thymine dimmer formation.
Iron oxides not only add color to the product but also contribute significant protection to the skin from multiple
wavelengths of light.
