With so many different options for sunscreen it can get a bit overwhelming selecting which one is right for you. This guide will help you understand the differences between mineral based and traditional sunscreen, while helping you find which TANRI product will fit your specific needs.
One way to narrow down which sunscreen is best for you is to decide on a few things that are absolutely essential. For example, if you’re looking for something that will last through your longer runs, blend in with a quick application, and have a high SPF, you may want to consider a traditional sunscreen.
Traditional sunscreens are absorbed into the skin and help prevent sun damage from the inside out. In other words, when you’re exposed to sunlight, UV rays are absorbed into the skin, immediately broken down by the active ingredients in the sunscreen, and released as heat. This is the most effective way to prevent damage from the sun and often protects you for a longer period of time.
Keep in mind, that if using traditional sunscreen, you must apply it at least 15 minutes before sun exposure for it to effectively offer sun protection.
If you’re looking for something that is sweat and water-resistant but protects your skin with more natural active ingredients, then our mineral sunscreen is the way to go! Mineral sunscreen works differently than traditional sunscreen; rather than being absorbed, it acts as a shielded layer that sits on top of the skin and fights against UV exposure.
Our mineral sunscreen offers SPF 30 while including things like aloe vera leaf juice, which is hydrating and rich in antioxidants, as well as coconut oil, which is moisturizing and has anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial for sun-exposed skin.
Mineral sunscreens are a great option for those with sensitive skin, and ours specifically leaves a very minimal white cast. A great way to minimize this is by pressing the sunscreen onto the skin rather than rubbing it in.
The great thing about choosing TANRI is knowing that no matter which sunscreen you choose, you’re getting a clean formula that doesn’t damage your skin or the environment.
