Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are two naturally occurring minerals. They are considered broad spectrum as their ability to block the sun’s UVA and UVB radiation from being absorbed into your skin. They’re commonly found in physical (or mineral) sunscreens.
Best known as a mineral or physical UV protectant, zinc oxide forms a physical barrier on the skin's surface that reflects and scatters the sun's rays before they have the chance to penetrate into the skin. Zinc oxide often is combined with additional UV-B blockers to provide the most complete broad-spectrum sunscreen. As zinc oxide sunscreens offer slightly better coverage across the sun’s UV spectrum, it is recommended to begin with this ingredient.
