With so many sunscreens on the market, how is one supposed to make a decision between, Coola vs Copertone, SPF 20 vs 45, waterproof vs sweat proof! I’m exhausted thinking of the options, but hey that’s our job is to provide a safe place for you to shop.

We hope that if you’ve been following our blog posts, now you can answer the differences between a toxic sunscreen from a good one? Or that creams containing Oxybenzone a know hormone disruptor should be avoided if found in an ingredient list. You might already know that reaching for a broad spectrum sunscreen is paramount when it comes sun protection, while fragrence should be omitted where possible. Today however, we focusing on the question of Mineral Sunscreen VS Classic so you can make the best choice for your skin protection needs.


The active sun protection ingredients are the main difference between the two. Our Classic Sunscreens use organic active ingredients designed to absorb and dissipate UVA/UVB rays, while our Mineral Sunscreens use mineral or physical active ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays.

Classic sunscreens should be applied at least 30 minutes before sun exposure, while our Mineral sunscreens are effective right after application. Mineral Sunscreens provide physical blockers so they are not absorbed as much into the skin as classic lotions are.

Make sure you choose a formulation that offers broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays!
