Protects the skin from ultraviolet light and comes to the rescue of infants and those with sensitive skin
What is Titanium Dioxide?
Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white and Pigment White 6. It has a wide range of applications, from paint to sunscreen to food coloring
Titanium Dioxide's Benefits for Skin
Titanium dioxide is found in almost every sunscreen with a physical blocker because of its high refractive index, its strong UV light absorbing capabilities and its resistance to discoloration under ultraviolet light. This advantage enhances its stability and ability to protect the skin from ultraviolet light. Sunscreens designed for infants or people with sensitive skin are often based on titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide, as these mineral UV blockers are believed to cause less skin irritation than other UV absorbing chemicals
