Synergie Minerals® is formulated with high grade zinc oxide and titanium dioxide minerals. This offers superior quality broad spectrum sun protection for all skin exposed to the environment. There are few makeup products on the market offering natural sunscreen levels this high.
Physical sunscreens (Zinc oxide and Titanium dioxide) are natural mineral sunscreen ingredients that protect against both UVA and UVB without absorbing into the skin and bloodstream. Clinical tests have shown that unlike physical sunscreen that sit on top of the skin, chemical sunscreens (such as octyl methoxycinnamate and oxybenzone) are absorbed into the body. Traces of these chemicals are then found in the liver and urine a few hours after application and can contribute to hormonal imbalance.
Synergie Minerals® contains only physical sunscreen that sit on top of the skin to reflect the sun’s rays. Zinc oxide is also water resistant and reduces inflammation associated with sensitive skin, acne and other inflammatory skin conditions.
Furthermore, as part of the ‘Clean Science®’ philosophy, Synergie does not add potentially harmful ingredients such as bismuth oxychloride, talc, silicones (dimethecone), parabens and artificial colors and fragrances.
