The INKEY List 100% Mineral UV Filters SPF30 Daily Sunscreen 50ml
The most important skincare step in any recipe. Our daily SPF 30 Sunscreen offers broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
Containing 22% Non-nano Zinc Oxide this 100% Mineral formula is ideal for daily use and suitable for all skin types including breakout prone and sensitive due to its non-comedogenic and non-irritating properties.
Due to its natural chalky form, Zinc Oxide can leave a white residue on the skin. To help enhance usability we have added a low level non-cosmetic tint to help counter balance and assist blending into the skin. The formula has also been created with layering in mind and does not pill when used with other skincare and make-up products.

Q. WHAT IS A MINERAL SUNSCREEN?
There are only two ingredients that are classified as mineral sunscreens, Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Zinc Oxide provides broad spectrum protection.
Q. WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE A MINERAL SUNSCREEN?
It comes down to personal choice. Non-mineral sunscreens are often considered more pleasing texturally however they are sometimes not suitable for all skin types and can cause reactions. Zinc Oxide sunscreens are non-irritating make them suitable for all skin types including sensitive. It is also non-comedogenic and a beneficial ingredient for acne and blemish prone skin. Non-nano Zinc Oxide SPF’s are also reef safe
Q. WILL THIS PRODUCT LEAVE A WHITE CAST?
Zinc Oxide is a white mineral and there is potential for the product to leave a white residue on the skin, across all skin tones however this may appear more pronounced on darker skin tones. We have taken measures to reduce this and enhance usability by using the least whitening grade of Zinc Oxide and adding a low level non-cosmetic tint to help balance this. This is not to colour match skin tone, but to offset the Zinc and aid blending into the skin.
Q. HOW DOES MINERAL SUNSCREEN WORK?
Zinc Oxide works by both absorbing UV and blocking and refracting UV at different points of the spectrum
Q. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE SUNSCREEN?
Every day! It should be as second nature as brushing your teeth. Using SPF daily is the not only the best way to help reduce the effects of premature ageing but also an important measure to help protect against health risks posed by sun exposure

The UVA protection factor is 15.85
