What is Titanium Dioxide?
Titanium Dioxide or titanium (IV) oxide or titania, is a substance that occurs naturally as three mineral compounds known as anatase, brookite, and rutile.† It is most commonly extracted from titanium tetrachloride by carbon reduction and re-oxidization. It has very high refraction properties. In fact, titanium dioxide is one of the whitest materials known to exist on Earth. It reflects light away from the skin. It is a major component of our sun block to deter the absorption of ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, the concentration of which determines the productís Sun Protection Factor, or SPF.† As a pigment, titanium dioxide is used to enhance the white color of certain foods, such as dairy products and candy. It also lends brightness to toothpaste and some medications. However, it is also used as a food additive and flavor enhancer in a variety of non-white foods, including dried vegetables, nuts, seeds, soups, and mustard, as well as beer and wine.
What is Zinc Oxide?
It is a compound that has the chemical formula ZnO in which the Z stands for zinc and the O stands for oxygen. This means that zinc oxide consists of one atom of zinc and one atom of oxygen, which are bound together. We use zinc oxide in many different ways, including diaper creams, sunblock, paint, rubber goods, and some paper coatings. It is even used in some foods.† Zinc is an essential mineral required by the body for maintaining a
sense of smell, keeping a healthy immune system, building proteins,
triggering enzymes, and creating DNA. Zinc also helps the cells in your
body communicate by functioning as a neurotransmitter. A deficiency in
zinc can lead to stunted growth, diarrhea, impotence, hair loss, eye and
skin lesions, impaired appetite, and depressed immunity.
The reason zinc oxide is used in so many topical products is because of its unique qualities. For starters it absorbs ultraviolet light, which is why itís such a popular ingredient in sunscreens. It also has mild astringent properties, which make it useful for drying minor skin irritation.† The compound may also help promote immune system health, making it helpful in wound healing.† It is used to protect the skin from irritation. For this use, it is often found in diaper creams. Itís also used in special lotions that help soothe irritated, itchy skin as well as in preparations that are intended to soothe burns.
We can make no claims regarding the SPF rating of our sunscreen without FDA testing and approval. We can tell you that our active ingredients titanium dioxide and zinc†are used at 34%, plenty of sun protection for you and your family! Go ahead....google it :)
