Physical Sunscreen (sometimes called Mineral Sunscreen) forms a protective physical barrier of inert minerals over the skin, is not absorbed by the skin, and is less likely to cause skin irritations.
Chemical Sunscreen (sometimes called Synthetic Sunscreen) uses petroleum-based synthetic compounds to absorb rays. It absorbs into skin. Note: Strictly speaking, all sunscreens contain chemicals (even water is a chemical). We use “Chemical” to differentiate non-mineral sunscreens from those using petrochemicals.
