The Differences Between Chemical and Physical Sunscreen and Which to Choose

Do you know the differences between chemical and physical sunscreen? If not, it may surprise you.

Whether you’re spending a long day at the beach or just tending to your lawn on a sunny day, it’s vital to protect yourself from the sun’s UV rays, which can cause sunburns, signs of aging, and even skin cancer.

However, not all sunscreens are made equally. Physical sunscreen is fully functional as soon as you put it on your skin, creating a barrier that lasts until it is rubbed or washed off. This means that physical sunscreen isn’t the best choice for swimming.

On the other hand, chemical sunscreen is water resistant, and is sure to protect you for a few hours after applying, no matter what. But – chemical sunscreen takes about 20 minutes to go into effect, and must be re-applied every 2-3 hours.

Differences Between Chemical and Physical SunscreenDepending on your plans, physical or chemical sunscreen may be the right choice. And thankfully – some sunscreens have both properties! Here are some common names of chemical and physical properties, to help you read the bottles.
