Inactive Ingredients

Apart for the active ingredients, which protect your skin from UV rays, there are a lot of other ingredients in a bottle of sunscreen! What are they there for?

The inactive ingredients have to do with the texture of the sunscreen, how easily the sunscreen spreads onto your skin, how it smells, and its shelf-life.

While the inactive ingredients don’t directly offer sun protection, they do affect how easily the sunscreen spreads onto your skin and how long it stays on. And that affects its coverage and protection.

In their list of inactive ingredients, many sunscreens contain preservatives and synthetic fragrances, which can be irritating, especially to sensitive skin.

In addition to a sunscreen that provides great sun protection, you want one with inactive ingredients that won’t irritate your skin or harm your body!

Natural Inactive Ingredients

When it comes to inactive sunscreen ingredients, say no to preservatives (like methylisothiazolinone) and fragrances (usually listed as “fragrance” or “parfum”) and yes to natural ingredients!
