Osmosis ABC's: Zinc Oxide

11/27/2017 Osmosis Skincare 0 Comments

We have finally reached the end of our Osmosis ABC's journey, and what an incredible journey it's been! From A-Z, the ins and outs of what makes our products tick have been such a joy to explore and share! As we land on the final letter, Z, we couldn't be more excited to dive into Zinc Oxide and its powerful skin-protecting qualities just in time for winter!

Zinc Oxide is a mineral ingredient derived from the earth that offers many benefits to the skin! This non-nano, oil-coated mineral contains anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, aids in wound healing, and offers protection from UVA and UVB rays without breaking down with sun exposure. Meaning, when used as a sunscreen, it provides natural, broad-spectrum protection while nourishing the skin instead of harming it with chemicals like many commercial sunscreen options.

Here at Osmosis, we believe that protective ingredients like zinc oxide should not only be in your skincare, but in your makeup as well! Most of us wear makeup every day, so if we can feel great about our makeup nourishing and protecting our skin... well, that's a win for us all! Zinc Oxide can be found in our Pressed and Loose Bases, Blushes, Eye Shadows, and Eye Pencils. But, the star of the Zinc Oxide show is Protect! Our top-selling, ultra sheer SPF 30 sunscreen carries this incredible ingredient with potency. Use on your face for daily protection or on your full body for a day at the pool!

PRO TIP: Don't forget sunscreen in the winter too! Often times when it's cold outside, we don't feel the suns rays as harshly. Don't be fooled! Rays still reach us in the winter time too. Plus, with the drop in humidity levels, your skin is drying out, too! Protect and nourish your skin to keep a radiant glow all season long!
