- Homosalate 10%
Homosalate is an organic compound that belongs to a class of chemicals called salicylates. Salicylates prevent direct skin exposure to the sun’s harmful rays by absorbing ultraviolet (UV) light. Homosalate specifically absorbs short-wave UVB rays, which are associated with DNA damage and increased risk of skin cancer.
- Octisalate 5%
Octisalate is a commonly used ingredient in sunscreens and skincare and cosmetic products that have SPF included in their formulation. Octisalate helps to filter out UVB rays from the sun. This is why it is often used in conjunction with other sunscreen ingredients that cover the UVA rays. It is also used to improve the water-resistance of the sunscreen formulation. This allows the sunscreen to last a little longer when at the beach, swimming or sweating. Regardless of whether a formulation includes octisalate, always reapply regularly and follow the directions on the label. Octisalate has the added benefit of also helping to stabilize some other sunscreen ingredients such as avobenzone, a UVA filtering sunscreen ingredient.
- Zinc Oxide 16.5%
One of the safest ingredients, zinc oxide can give your skin the protection it needs from harmful UV rays. It helps protect cells from being damaged, halts the ageing process, and prevents skin dryness by filtering out the harmful UV rays.
