Absorption (?

Absorption

Absorption describes how well a substance penetrates your skin. Here we measure absorption in terms of its rate of penetration into your skin. How fast did it absorb? Some products don't absorb well, and instead "sit" on top of skin forming a film, which can range from light to heavy. If you still have a layer of product sitting on top of your skin, the rate would be considered Very Slow.

Residue

Sometimes a product leaves a residue on the skin after it is applied - a film or a layer of product. Often the residue feels greasy, particularly with heavy moisturizers that contain a high amount of lipids. If your product does have residue, how greasy is it?

Description

Misc: 100% mineral UV filter system. Matte finish, non-whitening. Broad spectrum UVA/UVB with Cell-Ox Shield. UV + anti-oxidant protection. Water-resistant. Fragrance-free. Paraben-free. Tested on sensitive skin. Every day, dermatologists observe the severe skin damages caused by UVA and UVB ray exposure. UVB rays mainly cause burning. They are stopped by the epidermis. They cause tanning and are mainly responsible for sunburn. SPF or Sun Protection Factor is the degree of protection a sunscreen offers against UVB rays. UVA rays mainly cause aging or sun allergies. They penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB rays and can reach into the dermis. UVA rays directly contribute to skin aging (wrinkles, sagging, dark spots) and are the No. 1 cause of sun intolerances (allergies). Both UVA and UVB rays have been proven to cause damage to skin cells, including DNA, and to weaken the immune system. These damages potentially lead to the development of skin cancer.
