What are mineral-based sunscreens?
Mineral-based sunscreens reflect the suns rays like countless small mirrors to protect the skin from sunburn. They contain particles of minerals such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which can be used in different sizes to physically block the suns UV rays. When the average size of these mineral particles is between 1 and 100 nanometres (1 nanometre = 1 billionth of a metre), they are referred to as nanoparticles, which are invisible on the skin.
Why is natural protection visible?
These countless small mirrors - the mineral non-nano UV filters that reflect sunlight - are larger than 1 nanometre, and therefore visibly reflect sunlight. Weleda has deliberately refrained from using chemical or nano-sized UV filters and have developed mineral NATRUE-certified sunscreens to offer an alternative. So when mineral-based sunscreen is applied, it leaves a whitish sheen. The higher the sunscreen formulation¿s sun protection factor (SPF), the more prominently it whitens the skin. For babies and toddlers who should wear sunscreen with a high SPF this effect is not necessarily a drawback: parents can immediately see whether their children still have enough sunscreen on their skin and spot the areas of the skin that have not yet been covered. Weleda sunscreens are active immediately upon application, are waterproof and offer reliable and high UV protection -even for sensitive skin types and delicate baby skin.
