Active Ingredients

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

Zinc Oxide is a naturally occurring mineral that is formed from zinc. A nanoparticle is a particle smaller than 100 nanometers (nm), or 100 billionths of a meter. There are studies showing that very small nanoparticles (smaller than 35nm) of uncoated zinc oxide can be harmful to the environment by being toxic to marine life. Love Sun Body only uses non-nano zinc oxide.

Non-Nano Titanium Dioxide

Titanium Dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral that is formed from titanium. A nanoparticle is a particle smaller than 100 nanometers (nm), or 100 billionths of a meter. There are studies showing that very small nanoparticles (smaller than 35nm) of uncoated titanium dioxide can be harmful to the environment by being toxic to marine life. Love Sun Body only uses non-nano titanium dioxide.
