What are the overall benefits of a physical sunscreen versus chemical sunscreens?
A physical sunscreen, like Sunology, is designed to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays. Physical sunscreens act as a shield, sitting on your skin, deflecting harmful rays. Chemical sunscreens absorb certain chemicals into the skin; those molecules then absorb and dissipate the UVA/UVB rays into a less damaging form of radiation, which the body dispels.
What does SPF mean?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. Put simply, it measures how well a sunscreen will protect your skin from UVB rays by rating how much solar intensity is needed to produce a sunburn. The higher the SPF, the greater the solar intensity your sunscreen will protect against. The recommended SPF is 30 or higher*. Keep in mind, SPF does not measure protection against UVA rays, which are also damaging, nor does it indicate how effective a sunscreen might be at protecting you against skin cancer.
*Note: A higher SPF does NOT extend the amount of time you can stay out in the sun.
What are UVA and UVB rays? Does Sunology protect me from them?
UVA rays are the sun's rays that are responsible for tanning the skin. These rays can cause damage to your skin's cells below the surface, and may cause skin cancer, premature aging, and wrinkles. UVB rays cause sunburn, damaging the skin’s top layer. They’re generally most intense from 10am to 4pm. Sunology offers broad-spectrum protection, meaning it blocks both UVA and UVB radiation.
What ingredients shield UVA and UVB rays?
Both of our active ingredients, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, have been approved by the FDA as a mineral alternative to chemical-based sunscreens for providing protection you against UVA and UVB rays.
How often should I wear sunscreen?
The best way you can protect yourself is to use sunscreen daily during all seasons.
Is Sunology safe for daily use?
Sunology is absolutely safe and gentle enough for daily use throughout the year.
What are the general guidelines for applying Sunology to my skin?
Place a dime sized amount of Sunology in your hand, daub dots along your face, neck, trunk and limbs. Then blend the dots for complete coverage.
Is Sunology greasy or heavy?
No. Because Sunology contains no fillers or water, a little bit goes a long way, so use it sparingly.
Why is there sometimes a white residue after application?
The white residue after application is from our all-natural active ingredients. Don’t worry! If you wait a few minutes, or keep massaging the skin, the white will disappear!
Does this product work for all skin tones?
Yes, it works for all skin tones.
What if I’m also wearing makeup or a moisturizer? Does this make a difference when applying Sunology?
Sunology serves as a very stable base for makeup. Since one of our inactive ingredients is VitaOleféra Complex, an antioxidant-rich moisturizer, no additional moisturizer is needed. Simply apply Sunology the same way you do a moisturizer and then apply your makeup. Or follow your makeup routine with Sunology.
