KoolaSun SPF 30 to 50 is a broad spectrum UV A and UV B sunscreen The UV Blockers are micronised particle Titanium Dioxide ( Rutile ) , micronised particle Zinc Oxide ( Zincite ) and Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate.

Rutile and Zincite exist naturally in soil and are extremely unlikely to cause any adverse skin reaction.

Rutile and Zincite physically reflect the UV Rays and both offer Broad Band UV A and UV B protection.

Rutile and Zincite are not broken down by sun rays.

Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate has been used worldwide for 20 years plus in baby sunscreen formulations and is used for its excellent water resistance and UV B absorbing capabilities.

Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate has a synergist effect with the mineral UV absorbers and is only used in low concentrations as a water resistant UV absorber.

All the UV blockers are approved worldwide for use on adults and children 6 months and older.

The Sunblock is non-irritating and is fine for use on the face and on Sensitive Skin.

The base cream is a hypo-allergenic moisturising water and light oil emulsion, with Vitamin A, C and E added to cream.
