Mineral Sunscreens: Unlike organic sunscreens, micronized mineral sunscreens are insoluble, protect against the entire spectrum of UVA/UVB radiation and will not break down over time. This makes them the sunscreen of choice for endurance athletes and anyone who spends extended periods of time outdoors without the opportunity to reapply.
Organic Sunscreens: Organic sunscreens are soluble and therefore more resistant to wiping, sweating and abrasion. Each sunscreen targets specific wavelengths of the UV spectrum (UVA or UVB). This makes them ideal for strategic use in sports specific products as a backup for Micronized Mineral sunscreens.
