Pros and Cons Of Making Your own UVA and UVB Sunblock with Zinc Oxide!

 Summer is approaching! And who does not love to spend hours outdoors playing, hiking, grilling… Butl we all know and every well aware of the harmful effects of prolonged sun exposure without protecting our skin, either by layering it with fabric or using SPF lotions and creams.

 Here is how to pick your natural SUBLOCK.

Simple formulations (follow the rule –  “less is more”) that have zinc oxide for UVA and UVB protection are the best. Using zinc oxide and not titanium dioxide has its advantages. Most importantly, zinc oxide has a broader protection than titanium dioxide for both UVA and UVB rays, and it creates few free radicals in your body, and it is the only active ingredient that is approved to be used on babies under 6 months of age.

You don’t need to run out and buy a sunblock of 35 or 50 SPF factor; all you need is no more than 25. It seems that the bigger the factor the bigger is the skin irritation. Making higher SPF, is just another marketing trick for the manufacturers.

 Here is important note on zinc oxide.

It is effective at blocking both UVA and UVB rays. Both of these are very harmful on your skin, although they have different effect. UVA rays penetrate into the deeper levels of the skin, causing changes in DNA and altering you immune system, while UVB are stronger and penetrate fairly quickly top layer of the skin causing sunburn.

Zinc oxide literally BLOCKS the sunrays.

Making your own sunblock? Be careful!

 During the summer months, you can use body oils on daily basis. Making them with sesame oil, raspberry seed oil, coconut oil, unrefined avocado oil, shea butter, beeswax – these can offer natural protections. You can add to the raw materials above micronized zinc oxide that you can buy on-line.  Essential oils that are must during summer are frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, carrot, Roman chamomile, and helichrysum. These oils fight the cancerous effects of the sun.


However a word of caution: Homemade concoctions can go on unevenly leaving portions your skin vulnerable to the sun.  Special caution is against buying nano forms of zinc oxide powder, because the particles are much more absorbed by the lungs and nasal passages even if the mask and gloves are used.


And stay away from all citrus essential oils.
