About the active ingredients:
Octocrylene: An organic compound used as an ingredient in suncreams and cosmetics. It helps make suncream more water-resistant. It does not degrade when exposed to sunlight and prevents other sunscreen agents from breaking down and losing their effectiveness.
Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethanane: has the ability to absorb ultraviolet light over a wide range of wavelengths and then convert it to less damaging infrared radiation (heat).
Zinc Oxide: a white, powdery mineral and one of the safest ingredients for protecting the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) rays.
4-methtylbenzylidene camphor: an organic camphor derivative that is used in the cosmetic industry for its ability to protect the skin against UV, specifically UV B radiation.
MINERAL-BASED- natural Zinc Oxide provides a reflective barrier on the surface of your skin. The inclusion of Aloe Vera and Vitamin E in a moisturising base hydrates and soothes the skin while the active Zinc Oxide deflects damaging rays.
BROAD SPECTRUM- Drift Essentials suncream provides Broad Spectrum protection over the full range of UVA and UVB radiation. This is essential to protect your skin not only from the visible effects of sunburn, but also from deep tissue cancer-causing damage only achieve by broad-spectrum formulations.
REEF-FRIENDLY- Oxybenzone, a chemical added to many suncreams can be fatal to coral, according to a study published in the archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology. The chemical acts as an endocrine disruptor, tricking the live baby coral into encasing itself inside its own skeleton. Drift Essentials is Oxybenzone free.
VITAMIN E- The formulation contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant which can reduce scavenge and absorb free radicals that occur within our skin. When vitamin V is applies to the skin, a reduction of erythema, sunburn cells, chronic UV-B-induced skin damaged, and photo-carcinogenesis is experienced.
ALOE VERA- Allow vera helps with sunburn through its powerful healing activity at the epithelial level of the skin, a layer of cells that cover the body. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. Because of its nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker.
ZINC OXIDE- is a naturally occurring mineral known as Zincite. It’s chemical structure enables it to reflect and scatter ultraviolet rays of both the UVA and UVB spectrum while remaining completely photo-stable. Zinc Oxide is a physical barrier which sits on the outermost layer of the skin. Any free radicals released from the reactivity of this compound do not affect the living skin cells below.
