The active ingredients in all ALGA MARIS sunscreen products are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which were the only two ingredients recognized by EWG's 2019 Guide to Sunscreens as safe and effective. As highlighted in the report, zinc oxide performed better than chemical ingredients in the broad spectrum test.
The mineral molecules used in ALGA MARIS sunscreen products are micronized to minimize the whitening effect. It does not contain nanoparticles which, because of their size, could be absorbed by the organism, and accumulate in the dermis, or even enter the bloodstream and have a negative impact on the health.
The formula is perfect for sporting activities and the outdoors, on the beach or in the mountains. It is water and sweat resistant, and will not drip - and irritate - in the eyes. It provides effective protection for all outdoor activities, even in the water. It is not greasy and does not clog the pores. Suitable for everyday use.
