It’s finally time to pack for your summer holiday on the beach, but there’s one big question on your mind. Should you get a sunscreen with mineral or organic filters? The main difference is how they work. Organic filters protect your skin by absorbing radiation, but they can also cause allergies and a nasty tingling sensation on sensitive skin and are potentially damaging to the environment. Mineral filters create a mesh on the surface of the skin that diffracts light and reflects UV rays, but they also leave white marks. So do you plump for that invisible look or do you chose a product that respects the environment ?
