This all-natural mineral sunscreen from Boo Bamboo is all you need to protect your skin this summer. Boo Bamboo’s formula offers broad spectrum UVA / UVB protection and is enriched with bamboo extract to keep your skin soft and hydrated. Unlike many other mineral sunscreens, this one does not leave a white residue and is absorbed very fast into your skin. It is also water and sweat resistant for up to 40 minutes. Like all other products we sell at FAIR/SQUARE, the sunscreen is vegan and cruelty-free.
How and when to apply your sunscreen
Apply generously 15-30 minutes prior to exposure to the sun. Reapply as needed or after swimming, towel drying, perspiring heavily, washing and vigorous activity. Please consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use on children less than six months of age.
How does mineral sunscreen work?
Mineral sunscreens use zinc oxide as the active ingredient to protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. The zinc oxide is a natural mineral from the earth. When applied to the skin, it sits on top of your skin and acts as a physical barrier. It blocks the sun’s rays before the damaging radiation can reach your skin. Chemical sunscreens in comparison are absorbed by your skin and then absorb UV rays beneath the skin’s surface. This means that chemical sunscreens protect you from burns but not from UV exposure. They may also contain potentially harmful chemical ingredients that are able to enter your bloodstream.
