Microfine titanium dioxideis used as a mineral UV blocker as an alternative to more chemical forms of UV absorbing substances. Titanium dioxide has a high refractive index and strong UV light absorbing capabilities so it is highly effective in protecting the skin from UV light.

This lotion is more tolerable than those manufactured with other UV absorbing chemicals and is more suitable for people with sensitive skin.
