No more white cast Mineral Sunscreen
Sun screen skin care products ingredients

In 2022 and 2023, hydration, sensitivity relief, and eco-friendliness were the most prominent claims in the suncare market, shaping key consumer preferences and product innovations. This focus is expected to continue driving the market in 2024.

 

The Rise of Mineral Sunscreens

 

Mineral sunscreens are gaining significant popularity, fueled by growing consumer awareness about sensitive skin needs and eco-friendly options. The bans of certain chemical filters in locations like Hawaii and Mexican waterparks have also led to skepticism around chemical UV filters, further propelling the mineral sunscreen wave.

 

As mineral options with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide rise in demand, products with chemical filters have declined. Per Mintel, 40% of skincare users in Brazil are willing to pay more for natural mineral sunscreens. However, white cast has remained an enduring issue.
