Just Herbs’ herbal sunscreens are physical sunscreens and we use Zinc Oxide in our sun protection formulas. Zinc Oxide is a safe and naturally occurring mineral providing protection against the entire spectrum of UVA and UVB rays. Zinc Oxide can be used on delicate/sensitive skin and is even used in diaper rash creams for babies!
This product is specially formulated for oily/combination skin and has a light, non-greasy texture.
Just Herbs’ ayurvedic sunscreens draw upon the anti-UV properties of naturally occurring plants and biominerals. Since, these are herbal sunscreens, we do not use the term SPF (Sun Protection factor) on our labels, commonly used for chemical sunscreen based products that are subjected to clinical trials. SPF denotes the protection against UVB rays only.
We do not use any chemical sunscreens and instead rely on physical sunscreens (naturally occurring minerals) and on plant-based polyphenols for protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
However, if you had to put an equivalent value of SPF on the Nosun, it should be around 20-25 which is good enough for Indian skin.
- Physical Sunscreens do not allow the UV rays to absorb into your skin whereas chemical sunscreens work by absorbing UV rays.
- Physical Sunscreens mainly rely on two minerals - Titanium dioxide (TiO2) & Zinc oxide (ZnO) whereas chemical sunscreens rely on chemicals like Octylcrylene, Avobenzone, Octinoxate, Octisalate, OxyBenzone, and Homosalate and Helioplex.
- The minerals present in physical sunscreens provide protection against the entire spectrum of UVB and UVA rays whereas chemical sunscreens provide protection against UVB rays only.
Nosun Jojoba Wheatgerm Sun Protection Gel is a broad-spectrum herbal sunscreen meant for oily/combination skin. It does not provide coverage. The Skin Tint, on the other hand, is a daily-wear product that helps you achieve a ‘no makeup’ look without relying on chemically laden makeup products that may clog pores and potentially damage skin with prolonged use.
Reapplication is required if you are continuously out in the sun. You can re-apply this ayurvedic sunscreen every 2-3 hours.
