What does Chirally Correct mean?
Chirally refers to the right-handedness and left-handedness of the molecules in our bodies and the ingredients we apply to them. Ingredients that have been Chirally corrected have been filtered to contain only molecules that positively interact with the skin. In addition to minimising the risk of allergic or adveres reaction, studies shown this process to produce ingredients that are up to four times more concentrated than those conventional brands.
Physical v Chemical Sunblocks
Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing the sun’s rays. Some chemical filters can scatter sun rays, but still mostly just absorb them. Chemical filters include a range of ingredients, chemical filters tended to protect well against UVB rays, they often don’t deliver much in the way of UVA protection.
Physical sunscreens protect your skin from the sun by deflecting or blocking the sun’s rays. Physical filters include zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Zinc oxide can block against both UVA and UVB rays, covering the whole spectrum, while titanium dioxide only delivers protection from UVB rays. Both ingredients work well. Newer, micronised versions or those that contain nanoparticles appear much more clearer on the skin (previous versions had a tendency to leave a white cast on the skin); a physical (not chemical) barrier between you and the sun. Invisible Zinc™ protects against surface UVB and deeper penetrating UVA.
Zinc Oxide – generally regarded as best and safest physical blocking agent.
Physical sunscreen doesn’t break down in the sun unlike many chemical blocking agents.
Wear physical sunblock protection every day, not just at the beach!
Is your sunscreen really effective?
Take a moment to consider the following questions:
What makes Zinc Oxide so special?
Zinc Oxide is a NATURAL, PHYSICAL sunscreening agent that sits on your skin reflecting dangerous UVA and UVB rays. Chemical sunscreens on the other hand, merely diffuse rays, usually just UVB. Most chemical sunscreens offer little or no protection against UVA rays.
Why is it so important to protect against UVA rays?
Apart from being responsible for up to 70% of ageing, UVA exposure is now known to be a major cause of skin cancer.
If Zinc oxide is so good why aren’t all sunscreens using Zinc Oxide?
Most sunscreen manufacturers must meet certain price points and tend to use cheap sunscreening chemicals (octyl methoxycinnamate e.t.c.) as their active ingredients. Even the most reputable and trusted sunscreen manufacturers use these chemicals.
A Physical sunblock is not cheap, however at About Skin we have made it affordable and therefore possible for everyday use.
