Sol de Ibiza is an all-natural, certified organic and vegan sunscreen. So, you'll find that a lot of things are NOT in Sol de Ibiza: no heavy metals, no chemicals, no fragrances, no preservatives. But what are Sol de Ibiza's ingredients then? How can Sol de Ibiza be so effective and yet be so innocent?
The Active Ingredients
Conventional sunscreens have ingredients (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate) that may potentially cause health problems. According to some recent researches they seep through the skin into the bloodstream after only a couple hours. These chemicals persist in the blood for up to seven days and exceed, by up to 40 times, the allowed limits.
Mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, use two natural minerals - zinc oxide and titanium dioxide - as active ingredients. These minerals simply sit on top of your skin and protect it by reflecting away UV rays. The American authorities (FDA) have defined these filters 'Generally regarded as safe and effective.'

So, mineral sunscreen is the way to go!
And zinc oxide is the best of the two mineral sunscreen active ingredients because it is truly a broad-spectrum blocker. That means it protects you and your family from both UVA and UVB rays.
Titanium dioxide does a good job of keeping UVB rays out, but it’s not as effective when it comes to UVA rays.
For these and many other reasons Sol De Ibiza have chosen Non Nano Zinc Oxide as sunscreen filter.
