Sunscreen 101

Summer is in full swing, and many of your clients will be out swimming, hiking, vacationing and enjoying the warmth outside! While everyone knows they need to protect their skin, and sunblock is a highly effective solution, are your clients educated on the different types of sunblock? We have a broad range of skin protection at Pure Spa Direct to choose from! See the different types below.

Many sunscreens work by either absorbing, reflecting, or scattering light. Some use chemicals that combine with the skin to protect it from UV rays while others use naturally occurring minerals. I'm sure you have a variety of different clients who are sensitive to chemicals and are looking for a more natural solution to protect their skin from the sun, while others are content with the more traditional, chemical based sunblocks they know and love. Either way, why not carry a variety of types to retail in your spa? You'll be protecting your clients from damaging their skin while increasing profits for your business during the summer months!

Classic Sunscreen

The first type of sunscreen I'm sure most of your clients are familiar with is classic, or chemical based sunscreen. Classic sunscreens use chemically active ingredients that are designed to absorb and dissipate UVA/UVB rays. We have a great selection to choose from!


Our Advanced Sun Resistance SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Formula from June Jacobs is a great, high end sunscreen your clients will love. Paraben and preservative free, this blend of full spectrum chemical UV protectors is specially designed to protect delicate skin from sunburn and UV damage. 






Another great traditional sunscreen is our Sun Therape Moisturizer with SPF 35. It provides super absorbent hydration while helping to repair and protect skin from UVB and UVA exposure. The bonus is that it's also formulated with Pharmagel's exclusive Photosome Reconstructive Complex which can help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your clients! 





Mineral Sunscreen

The other type of sunscreen is mineral based, which uses active ingredients like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide to scatter and reflect UVA/UVB rays. This is ideal for your clients who are prefer to use more naturally derived products on their skin.


One of our best selling mineral based sunscreen is our BurnOut 18.6% Zinc Oxide Sunblock. I love it! It's great for clients who have sensitive skin. Generally, mineral based sunscreens go on chalky or white, but this formula goes on clear. It's also biodegradable, ocean-safe, petroleum-free and paraben-free!







Another great chemical-free sunscreen we carry is Our SPF 30 Sunblock by Ayur-Medic Skincare. Derived of nano zinc oxide, linoleic acid, glycine and tocopheryl acetatet, it uses the latest nano-technology to protect the skin from premature aging caused by exposure to UV light.
