Cotz Water Resistant Sun Protection SPF 58 is mineral based, utilizing ultra-micronized Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide as its active sunscreen ingredients. Cotz is excellent for the pediatric population and those with skin sensitive to 'organic chemical' sunscreens or fragrances commonly found in other sunscreens. Waterproof and highly effective, this sunscreen is elegant, and leaves the skin soft.
Sunscreens may "block" or "absorb" UV rays. Typically chemical sunscreens absorb the UV rays and in doing so may break down to undesired molecules - especially for those who have sensitive skin conditions as well as the pediatric population. Total Block therefore formulated a sunscreen with only Titanium and Zinc "UV Blockers" - otherwise known as COTZ. While other manufacturers have products that contain Titanium or Zinc, many of those also contain other chemicals that may effect sensitive individuals including children.
This sunscreen provides SPF 58 protection against UVA and UVB. It is ideal for individuals with sun sensitive skin conditions such as lupus, rosacea, skin cancer, polymorphous light eruption as well as those on chemotherapy or other sun sensitive medications and those post laser treatments, that typical sunscreens just don't work. Fragrance Free.
