Long term exposure to UV rays leads to sun damage that most people think are just inevitable signs of aging. In reality, they’re largely preventable—and a good sunscreen (applied daily) is the best tool we have to stave off fine lines and skin cancer.
At goop, we take the importance of sunscreen to the next level. We only carry 100% mineral sunscreens (also known as physical sunscreen) because we believe they are the safest options out there.
Mineral sunscreens physically block UV light from hitting and damaging the skin with titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide as the only active ingredients. Zinc oxide is also the primary ingredient in diaper creams, formulated to soothe the skin—another added benefit for those with sensitive skin.
Mineral Face Sunscreen
There’s a face sunscreen suited for anyone these days, no matter your skin type or tone. Even those with acne prone skin need not worry. And advances in sunscreen technology mean they don’t just blend in beautifully—many of them even add to your skin care routine with ingredients like Vitamin C and Niacinamide.
Mineral Body Sunscreen
Cumulative sun damage doesn’t just add up on our necks and faces—arms, wrists, and hands are also at risk of premature photo-aging due to sun burns and exposure. Any body part that’s exposed to the sun throughout the day is at risk, so make sure you stay protected.
Tinted Mineral Sunscreen
For those who want a little bit more coverage out of their sun protection, or for those with darker skin tones, a tinted option can make all the difference. New formulations don't leave much of a white cast anyway, but options with some tint added can match any variety of skin tones flawlessly and even provide foundation-like coverage.
