Tierra & Lava’s primary mineral (Zinc Oxide) is considered nonallergenic and non-comedogenic. Mineral sunscreen is less likely to irritate sensitive skin since ingredients aren’t absorbed into the skin itself. This cream sits on top of your skin becoming a physical barrier to the sun’s ray and starts protecting your skin immediately after application. Tierra & Lava’s sunscreen has been extensively tested, it is gentle and safe on all skin types including children, athletes and outdoor adventurers playing under the sun.
