Frequently asked questions
physical sunscreens, also called mineral sunscreens, protect skin by absorbing and converting, as well as scattering/reflecting the UV rays. chemical sunscreens protect skin by absorbing UV rays and converting them into heat energy. our daily SPF is a physical sunscreen that uses nanoparticle-free zinc oxide as its sunscreen filter.
SPF stands for “sun protection factor” and it measures a sunscreen’s ability to protect against UVB rays. the SPF number tells you how long the sun’s UVB rays would take to darken your skin if you applied the sunscreen (as directed) compared with the amount of time without sunscreen. A broad spectrum sunscreen means it protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. PA is a sunscreen rating system often used in Asia and measures the level of protection against UVA rays. Our daily SPF is a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF rating of 32.
unfortunately “reef safe” and “coral safe” are unregulated terms and research supports that both mineral and chemical sunscreen filters have some degree of effect on the ocean. we also encourage customers to utilize other sun protective measures to minimize impact on the ocean, such as wearing hats and UV protective clothing (these are the easiest way to avoid environmental impact)!
we definitely still recommend applying a moisturizer before daily spf, because the product isn't formulated to replace a moisturizer in your routine.
both the Silk SPF and Daily SPF were formulated to be gentle and clinically tested and dermatologist-reviewed to ensure they’re non-irritating. however, mineral SPFs are typically preferred by dermatologists for use on children, so we would recommend our Daily SPF. we still always recommend talking to your pediatrician and doing a patch test to ensure compatibility.
