Zoca Lotion Sunscreen is safe for people of all ages and is appropriate for use on both face and body.
NON-NANOPARTICAL UNCOATED ZINC OXIDE Nano particles risk being so small that they can pass through our skin barrier and potentially be absorbed by coral reefs. Titanium dioxide is photodegradable and in the presence of UV rays can break down leaving behind free radicals. An in-vitro study suggested that TiO2 also caused DNA damage when exposed to UV light. Even coated TiO2 can be worn down by pool chlorine and sun. Non-nano zinc oxide is one of the few active sunscreen ingredients known to be photostable. For these reasons we believe that it is the safest SPF active for humans and marine ecosystems available at this time.
