The Science Behind
“Nano sized particles (<100 nm) are often used in physical sunscreens to reduce the whitening effect. However, the use of nano-sized zinc oxide is controversial. Nano-sized sunscreen particles are still under investigation, and until their safety is certain, Medik8 will avoid their usage in our mineral/physical sunscreens. Physical Sunscreen features zinc oxide at the optimal size; slightly larger than a nanoparticle but not so large that the properties of the sunscreen are sacrificed. At this size, it gives the best light scattering ratio and decreases the whitening effect, without having to use nano particles.”
