So, What’s The Difference Between Chemical And Physical Sunscreen?
While it may be easy to describe chemical formulas as ‘sunscreen’ and physical ones as ‘sunblock,’ such a classification oversimplifies the technology. “Mineral filters have scattering and reflective properties, but it is not because of these properties that they become effective sunscreens,” says Dr. Terry Zickerman, founder of sun care brand Love Sun Body. Instead, physical sunscreens work because of their semiconductor-like electronic properties as solids, which means they both block and absorb UV rays. But there is still a key difference between chemical and physical sunscreens. “The physical/mineral filters are not absorbed into the skin,” he says. “Mineral filters will wash off.”
