Mineral versus chemical sunscreens. What's the difference?
Mineral sunscreens are better at protecting you from UVA and UVB rays then chemical sunscreens (they are called broad spectrum for this reason). This is because they reflect the suns rays instead of absorbing them into your skin and dissipating the heat like chemical sunscreens. They may be harder to rub in but this is because they don't usually contain nano-particles that help them rub in easily and absorb quickly.
Mineral sunscreens also contain less chemicals that may be harmful to you by disrupting hormones, causing allergies and penetrating the skin.
