What is mineral sunscreen?

Sunscreens use either chemical active ingredients or minerals. Our formulas contain mineral active ingredients (zinc oxide and titanium oxide). The mineral ingredients reflect the sun's rays like a mirror to protect exposed skin. 

What does Broad Spectrum mean?

There are two types of UV light that can harm your skin — UVA and UVB. A broad-spectrum sunscreen protects you from both.

What are the active ingredients in Tubby Mineral Sunscreen and Sunstick?

+ Zinc Oxide 7% (sunscreen) and Zinc Oxide 20% (sunstick)

+ Titanium Dioxide 5% (sunscreen)

+ Titanium dioxide is an Inert earth mineral used as a thickening, whitening, lubricating, ingredient in sunscreen. It protects skin from UVA and UVB radiation and is considered no risk of skin sensitivity.

+ Zinc oxide is a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA & UVB rays.

How often should you put sunscreen on?

Sunscreen should be applied 15 minutes before sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin. Reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as putting it on in the first place, so reapply the same amount every 80 minutes.
