There are two categories of active ingredients in sun protection: chemical absorbents and physical barriers. Zinc and titanium dioxide are mineral, physical barriers. Chemical absorbents, such as oxybenzone and octinoxate, work by absorbing the energy of UV rays and converting it to heat that is then dispersed throughout the skin. Physical barriers (mineral sunscreens) reflect the UV rays, bouncing them away from the skin.
