Protect your baby’s skin from damaging UV rays
Gentle and effective, Substance Baby’s chemical-free Sun Care Creme keeps delicate skin protected by creating a natural physical barrier to protect against the elements. Natural oils of shea butter, sesame seed, and jojoba oil offer added sun protection, while moisturizing and soothing sensitive skin. The botanical blend of organic calendula, grapeseed, and green tea extract cool and soothe over-exposed skin and keep bugs away. Water resistant, this formula is safe for children of all ages.
How and when to apply your sunscreen
Apply liberally to exposed skin and reapply at least every 2 hours. Reapply after swimming or sweating and reapply immediately after towel drying. All of Substance Sun Care products are the equivalent to an SPF 30 and are safe for infants 3 months and up. Mineral sunscreens will often leave a white residue. This white residue is the active zinc oxide, which acts as a reflector to the sun’s rays. To reduce the whitening effect, rub in until the whiteness dissipates.
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.
