Mountain Mud Reef Safe CBD Sunscreen is nothing like the everyday sunscreen you are used to. Few companies utilize non nano Zinc Oxide even in the smallest amount. Our product is a concentrate, so a small amount goes a long way. We recommend that you use small amounts to cover areas until you get a feel for our consistency. We do not want you wasting your MUD!
Our main active ingredient is Zinc Oxide—one of only 17 active ingredients currently approved by the FDA for use in sunscreens.
Zinc oxide particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, where they scatter, absorb, and reflect ultraviolet radiation, protecting your living skin below. Zinc oxide is unique among sunscreen ingredients in that it is truly a broad-spectrum blocker, protecting from UVA, UVB, and even UVC. We’ve determined that zinc oxide is the safest, most effective active sunscreen ingredient available.

How does non nano zinc work as a sun block?
An essential mineral, zinc oxide effectively reflects and scatters UVA and UVB rays from the sun, which means it provides “broad range coverage” for sun protection. You can see the protection layer created on your skin initially before fully absorbed—a creamy white barrier keeping your skin safe.
What else should I know about zinc oxide in reef safe sunscreen?
Zinc oxide is non-irritating and safe with sensitive skin types. Zinc oxide is used as a skin protectant and anti-irritant with a long history of being used to treat skin irritations and diaper rash. So it’s really perfect in sunscreens!
What does “non nano” actually mean and why does it matter?
A non-nano particle is larger than 100 nanometers whereas nanoparticles are tiny clumps/crystals of some substance with size ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers. One nanometer = one thousandth of a millimeter (a.k.a. ultra-small). Research has shown evidence that some substances may cause health risks when converted to nanoparticles. Consider avoiding skin care products with nanoparticles until further research is available.
