Zinc Oxide 25%, Virgin Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Vanilla Extract
Zinc oxide is the most effective UV absorber across the entire UVA and UVB spectrum. It is the sole sunscreen active ingredient approved for use on children by FDA. Zinc oxide holds tight to its electrons when it absorbs UV energy and limits the creation of free radicals that do damage to your cells and increase the risk of skin cancer. The zinc oxide Jai Ven Skin uses is non-nano, and not-micronized; there are zero zinc oxide nano particles in our formulas. And that’s good news for you!
Coconut oil sinks deep into the skin, moisturizing, conditioning, and softening it. It is used for its beneficial Lauric Acid in high quantities. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which is translated into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses, various pathogenic bacteria, and protozoa.
Beeswax gives this sunscreen its water resistance so water rolls right off.
This essential oil has a warm and pleasing fragrance that calms and relaxes.
