Why Choose TiZO?

Elegant Textures:
TIZO Mineral Sunscreens are made with ingredients that are formulated to feel soft and light.

Best Ingredients:

All TiZO Mineral Sunscreen are made with raw materials that are “best available”.

Free of:
All chemical sunscreen filters, dyes, parabens, gluten, phthalates, preservatives.

UVA/UVB Reflection:

Mineral sunscreen filters reflect UVA and UVB rays away from the skin, whereas chemical sunscreen filters absorb those rays.

Versatile for All Skin Types and Tones:
TIZO has multiple products that work for all skin types, including acne-prone, rosacea prone, dry, and oily and for all skin tones without leaving a white mask.

Lays on top of the skin:

Mineral sunscreen ingredients lay on top of the skin. Some chemical sunscreen ingredients have been proven to absorb into the skin and bloodstream.

Mineral is G.R.A.S.E.:

Per the new proposed FDA sunscreen regulations, only mineral sunscreen ingredients zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are G.R.A.S.E. (Generally Recognized As Safe and Effective). The 12 chemical sunscreen ingredients currently in use in the United States have insufficient data to make a positive G.R.A.S.E. determination. The FDA is requesting that additional testing be done on all 12 chemical ingredients.

Reef Safe:
Mineral sunscreen ingredients are reef friendly. Although the only two ingredients have been banned in Hawaii and Key West are oxybenzone and octinoxate, we believe that the safest option for our earth is to choose a mineral sunscreen.
