WHAT'S IN YOUR SUNSCREEN?

Not all sunscreens are made the same! There are two types of sunscreens that have different ingredients and ways to protect our skin from the sun.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) recommends avoiding active ingredients like oxybenzone, a commonly used ingredient found in chemical sunscreens. There are concerns that this ingredient may disrupt hormones, cause allergic skin reactions and absorb into the bloodstream.

The only FDA-approved sunscreen ingredients deemed safe are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, both of which are found in mineral sunscreens.

Here is an infographic on the differences between chemical vs. mineral sunscreens:

Tanri Sunscreen only uses active ingredients zinc oxide and titanium dioxide,
and covers UVA/UVB broad spectrum.
