Types of Sunscreen
Chemical sunscreens use ingredients that absorb UV radiation and release it as heat from the body. Physical sunscreens, on the other hand use ingredients that reflect the rays of the sun to protect skin from harmful radiation.
Daily U.S. Diagnoses
This is an estimate of skin cancer diagnoses made in the U.S. every day. Skin cancer can affect any individual, regardless of skin color. Skin cancer rates have been rising over the last 30 years, making sunscreen more important than ever. 
Is how much sunscreen the AAD recommends  for most adults to cover their whole body. It should be applied on skin 15 minutes before going outdoors, and reapplied every two hours, or after swimming and sweating.
We use the very ingredients in chemical sunscreens that make them effective, but then render them using our Sunexis formula to meet higher safety standards. The use of these effective ingredients allows our product to meet Sun Protection Factor (SPF) standards recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).  Learn why we set out to make these ingredients safer below.
Chemical sunscreen ingredients have been proven to absorb into the human bloodstream, which may induce hormonal disruption and other potential toxic effects. They remain in the body for weeks, well past the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety threshold. Our sunscreen is again able to render these effective ingredients harmless to human health, and help you feel safer while using our product.
Chemical sunscreen ingredients have been proven to be toxic to aquatic organisms. Hawaii has banned common ingredients in chemical sunscreen such as oxybenzone and octinoxate for causing damage to marine life and coral reefs. Our sunscreen's formulation renders these effective ingredients harmeless, making our product not just safer for you, but safer for the environment.
