The FDA has put the entire sunscreen industry on alert by proposing that only two active ingredients: ZnO and TiO2 have enough safety information. All other ingredients, such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, do not have enough data to determine their safety. In particular, the FDA raised concerns about the substantial skin absorption of oxybenzone, its potential to affect hormone levels, and its increased absorption susceptibility of children.
Natural mineral ZnO is the only UV active ingredient that is safe for babies 6 months and older. LEMYKA mineral sun lotion contains only ZnO as its active ingredient. We use 21% of ZnO in each of our sun lotions, making it one of the highest ZnO-containing sunscreens on the market.
One of the key issues with ZnO is that it gets chalky and makes skin appear ghostly. Neither adults nor children like to use white cast and greasy sunscreens. LEMYKA's technical team created an advanced formula based on our innovative technologies. LEMYKA UV Shield moisturizer is a lotion-like susncreen that is light weight and breathable. It is ideal for daily use for any one with eczema, rosacea, dry, or sensitive skin.
