Coated vs. Uncoated Zinc Oxide:
Both coated and uncoated zinc oxide protect us from the sun. However, they have different impacts on the environment and our bodily health.
When used in sunscreens, uncoated zinc oxide is a broad-spectrum protectant that sits on the skin's surface, forming a protective physical barrier from cancer-causing rays. It is also safe for the preservation of coral reefs.
On the contrary, coated zinc oxide can be harmful when inhaled. It also significantly leads to the bleaching and decay of coral reefs and is currently undergoing many studies to determine its other potentially dangerous features.
