TITANIUM DIOXIDE

Titanium dioxide is a mineral mainly used as white pigment. It has a high refractive index and is able to absorb, reflect and scatter sunlight. For this reason, titanium dioxide is also one of the most utilised physical filters in sunscreen products. It is able to offer protection against both UVA (although it is less effective between 350 and 400 nm) and UVB rays.
