While everyone knows that sunscreen is one of the best tools to keep skin safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays, the decision of which sunscreen to slather on can sometimes be tricky. Although there are more sunscreen options than ever, organic formulas may be a good choice when heading outside this summer.
So what sets organic sunscreens apart from other sunscreens? Sunscreens basically break down into two groups because they work differently and often have different kinds of ingredients.
First, there are chemical sunscreens which sink into the skin and work to absorb UV rays. On the other hand, there are physical sunscreens which are usually a thicker consistency and work by blocking or reflecting UV rays.
