Why SPF 30?
SPF 30 blocks nearly 97 percent UVB radiation.
SPF measures protection from UVB rays, the kind that cause
sunburn and contribute to skin cancer. Dermatologists recommend using a
SPF15 or SPF30 sunscreen. Higher SPFs don't give much more protection.
Science Behind the Ingedients:
Remarlé® Sun Block contains Non-Nano
Zinc Oxide, the safest, most effective sunblock ingredient
What does non-nano mean in a zinc
A nano particle will enter the blood
stream but a non-nano will not. For that reason, non-nano is safer. Nano comes
from the Greek word “nanos” and means “Dwarf.” 1 nanometre = one
billionth of a metre, meaning a nanoparticle is a particle smaller than 100
nanometers. Therefore a non-nano particle is larger than 100nm.
What is zinc oxide?
Zinc is a powered mineral that sits
on top of the skin. It can stand alone as a sunblock because it is truly
effective against UVA, UVB and even UVC rays.
According to Dr. Marilynn Syrett, zinc oxide is one
of the safest ingredients for protecting the skin from the harmful effects of
ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays penetrate the skin and damage tissue, speeding
up the aging process and drying the skin out. These rays also increase the risk
of skin cancer. Sunscreens containing zinc oxide filter out UV rays, keeping
them from penetrating the skin and causing cell damage.
Zinc oxide is also effective for healing the skin.
It can be used to heal wounds, reduce the tenderness associated with sunburns
and soften chapped skin. Jonathan Moore, DPM, notes that people who are zinc
deficient typically experience slower wound-healing times. When zinc oxide is
applied to the wound area, it provides the body with the extra zinc it needs to
repair skin cells. Zinc oxide helps keep the wound area moist and clean.
Shea Butter is not only moisturizing, but it also creates a
barrier and prevents bugs from biting.
oil is a natural deterrent against mosquitoes, gnats and horseflies.
Oil is also known to
work the best against mosquitoes.
