Sunscreen Product Forms

Sunscreen Lotion

Nako Cosmetic sunscreen lotions are formulated to be water-based, offering easy application over large surface areas. Ideal for both everyday use and outdoor activities, these lotions provide a thin yet effective barrier against harmful UV rays. This advanced formula ensures a non-greasy feel while offering broad-spectrum protection.

Sunscreen Cream

Sunscreen creams are denser than lotions and provide a thicker barrier, making them ideal for dry skin. They are usually formulated with a higher oil content and offer prolonged moisture retention. Creams are often the go-to choice for winter months or windier conditions. For instance, creams can also contain anti-aging ingredients.

Sunscreen Spray

Sunscreen sprays also allow for reapplication without disturbing the makeup or other skincare products, a benefit appreciated by many beauty-conscious consumers. Furthermore, the fine mist ensures even coverage, reducing the risk of missing spots that could be vulnerable to sun damage. The aerosol format makes it easy to apply sunscreen on children who might be too restless for a lotion or cream application.

Sunscreen Gel

Sunscreen gels are alcohol-based and deliver a lightweight, non-greasy application. They absorb quickly, making them an excellent choice for oily or acne-prone skin. Gels are ideal for facial application and usually leave no visible residue. Say goodbye to that heavy, oily feeling; with gels, it’s all about that fresh-faced glow.

Sunscreen Oil

Sunscreen oils provide a lustrous finish without leaving a greasy feeling. These oils often offer hydration along with sun protection and are well-suited for individuals with normal to dry skin types. According to Pure Wow, sunscreen oils are chemical-based and feature an oily base for easy application without a whitecast. They typically include hydrating ingredients and boast a lighter texture compared to many lotions and creams.

Sunscreen for Different Skin Types

Sunscreen for Oily Skin

Sunscreen for oily skin often contains mattifying ingredients to control excess sebum. Look for non-comedogenic formulas that won’t clog pores and ingredients like zinc oxide that help regulate oil production. These sunscreens are also usually water-based to prevent a greasy finish. Additionally, many also include antioxidants to combat environmental stressors.

Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin

Sunscreen for sensitive skin is generally formulated with mineral ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are less likely to cause irritation. They are usually free from fragrances and parabens, thereby reducing the risk of skin reactions. These formulations often undergo rigorous dermatological testing to ensure maximum comfort and safety for sensitive skin.

Sunscreen for Dry Skin

Nako Cosmetics’s sunscreen for dry skin is generally cream-based with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin. These sunscreens not only protect from UV rays but also act as moisturizers. For example, they can also include ceramides that help restore the skin’s natural barrier. These formulations frequently offer added nutrients to revitalize dull skin.

Sunscreen for Acne-Prone Skin

Sunscreen for acne-prone skin should be oil-free and non-comedogenic to ensure it won’t exacerbate breakouts. It’s crucial to look for lightweight formulas that also offer broad-spectrum protection. Ingredients like niacinamide may be included for their anti-inflammatory properties. These sunscreens are often formulated to be pH-balanced, further reducing irritation.

Sunscreen for Brown Skin

Sunscreen for brown skin should offer broad-spectrum protection and be devoid of white casts, which can appear ashy on darker skin tones. Mineral formulas are usually a better fit as they blend easily and offer robust protection. Avoid formulas that leave a white cast; select those that complement natural skin tones. These products are also frequently water-resistant, ensuring long-lasting coverage.

How Sunscreen is Made

Step#1 Sourcing of Ingredients The first step in the sunscreen manufacturing process is the sourcing of high-quality ingredients. This involves choosing UV filters, emollients, and other skin-benefiting additives that meet stringent safety standards. Suppliers are carefully selected based on their reputation for delivering high-quality, ethically sourced materials. This phase lays the foundation for the product's overall effectiveness and safety.
Step#2 Formulation The second step is formulating the sunscreen. This involves scientists and dermatologists working together to create a blend that provides maximum UV protection while also being skin-friendly. Ingredients are mixed in specific proportions according to a predetermined formula to ensure efficacy and consistency. Accurate formulation is crucial for the final product's performance on the skin.
Step#3 Lab Testing Once a formula is prepared, it undergoes lab testing for various parameters like SPF effectiveness, water resistance, and stability. This ensures that the product meets all safety and efficacy standards. Advanced testing equipment is used to eliminate any margin of error. Trust is cultivated in the lab, ensuring that every bottle departing the facility represents excellence.
Step#4 Batch Production After successful lab testing, a pilot batch is produced for further assessment. This small-scale production serves as a test to evaluate the scalability of the formula. Any necessary adjustments to the formula or manufacturing process are made at this stage. The insights gathered during this phase are critical for smooth mass production.
Step#5 Quality Control The fifth step is an in-depth quality control process. Every batch is inspected for uniformity, texture, and efficacy. Tests ensure products meet all specifications and guidelines. A detailed report is generated for every batch to maintain transparency in quality assurance. At Nako Cosmetic, this rigorous approach guarantees that each product consistently lives up to high standards of quality.
Step#6 Packaging Finally, the approved sunscreen is transferred to the packaging department. It is filled into its final containers, whether they be tubes, bottles, or sprays. The packaging is designed to be user-friendly while preserving the integrity of the product. Special care is taken to ensure that the packaging is also environmentally responsible. Each container undergoes a final quality check to ensure safe storage and effective dispensing.

Sunscreen Formulas

Mineral Sunscreen

Mineral sunscreens primarily use physical UV filters like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. These sunscreens sit on top of the skin and act as a barrier that reflects UV rays. They are often recommended for sensitive skin and are less likely to cause irritation. Mineral sunscreens are also environmentally friendly, posing less harm to coral reefs and marine life.

Zinc Oxide Sunscreen

Zinc oxide sunscreens offer broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. They are an excellent choice for people with sensitive or reactive skin as they are less likely to cause irritation. Zinc oxide is a key ingredient in the Nako Cosmetic range, offering both safety and effectiveness. This makes them one of the most versatile sunscreen options on the market.

Oil-Free Sunscreen

Oil-free sunscreens are specially formulated to provide UV protection without clogging pores. These are ideal for individuals with oily or acne-prone skin. They usually contain mattifying agents to control shine throughout the day. These formulations also allow for easy layering with other skincare products, making them a versatile addition to any skincare routine.

Titanium Dioxide Sunscreen

Titanium dioxide sunscreens work by scattering and reflecting UV rays, offering robust protection, especially against UVB rays. According to Minimalist, studies indicate that the pigment grade TiO2 (Titanium Oxide) does not penetrate through healthy skin, making it a safe option that won’t disturb the systematic functions of a human being. They are lightweight and less greasy, suitable for daily use, and favored under makeup.

Retinol Sunscreen

Retinol sunscreens combine the benefits of UV protection and anti-aging. These formulations help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while also protecting the skin from sun damage. It’s like reversing time while safeguarding the future. This dual-action formula makes them a smart investment for mature skin, offering a comprehensive skincare solution in one product.

Iron Oxide Sunscreen

Iron oxide sunscreens are known to provide additional protection against visible light, particularly blue light from electronic devices. They are often recommended for those concerned with pigmentation and are effective in preventing dark spots. These formulations are a wise choice for people who spend a lot of time in front of screens.

Unscented Sunscreen

Unscented sunscreens are formulated without added fragrances, making them a suitable choice for individuals with sensitive or allergy-prone skin. These types of sunscreens reduce the risk of skin irritation and allergic reactions. They are a go-to option for those who prefer skincare products without unnecessary additives. Moreover, their neutral scent allows for easy integration into any skincare routine.

Sunscreen Functions

Tanning Sunscreen
Whitening Sunscreen
Anti-Aging Sunscreen
Tanning Sunscreen Tanning sunscreens are formulated to accelerate the tanning process while providing some level of sun protection. These products frequently contain elements that promote quicker melanin production, aiding in achieving a bronzed appearance more rapidly. However, it's crucial to note that these sunscreens should still offer a minimum level of SPF to prevent sunburn.
Whitening Sunscreen Whitening sunscreens contain ingredients like vitamin C and niacinamide that aim to lighten skin tone and diminish dark spots. These sunscreens offer not only UV protection but also contribute to long-term complexion improvement. For targeting hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone, whitening sunscreen might be the ideal solution.
Anti-Aging Sunscreen Anti-aging sunscreens combine sun protection with ingredients that fight the signs of aging, such as retinol and hyaluronic acid. These sunscreens are designed to protect the skin from sun-induced aging while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They offer a two-in-one solution that addresses both immediate and long-term skincare concerns.
Tinted Sunscreen Nako Cosmetic's tinted sunscreens offer a touch of color along with sun protection, essentially functioning as a BB cream with SPF. These are great for individuals who want to skip foundation but still achieve an even skin tone. They provide a natural-looking finish and are often available in multiple shades to match different skin tones. Additionally, they simplify the beauty routine by merging skincare and makeup into a single step.

Sunscreen Degree

SPF 50 Sunscreen SPF 50 sunscreens offer a high level of protection, blocking approximately 98% of UVB rays. They are often recommended for outdoor activities where sun exposure is prolonged and intense. SPF 50 is generally considered suitable for individuals with fair skin who burn easily. Nako Cosmetic provides an SPF 50 sunblock that guarantees comprehensive protection while maintaining skin health.
SPF 30 Sunscreen SPF 30 sunscreens are the gold standard for everyday use, blocking about 97% of UVB rays. They offer sufficient protection for short periods of sun exposure and are generally lighter in texture, making them easy to apply. For a dependable, everyday solution, SPF 30 is the ideal choice. These sunscreens strike a balance between efficacy and comfort, and are well-suited for a variety of skin types.

Sunscreen Types

Scalp Sunscreen

Scalp sunscreens are specifically formulated to protect the often-neglected scalp area. They usually come in non-greasy sprays or powders that easily absorb into the skin without leaving a residue. These sunscreens offer protection without compromising the look and feel of the hair. It’s barely noticeable, but the scalp will appreciate it.

Sun Protection for Face

Facial sunscreens are designed with lighter formulas and often include additional skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid or niacinamide. They absorb quickly, providing high-level protection without clogging pores or causing breakouts. Nako Cosmetic offers facial sun protection that is both effective and gentle on the skin, making it a top choice for daily use. This makes them perfect for integrating into any skincare routine.

Hair Sunscreen

Hair sunscreens are formulated to protect the locks from the damaging effects of UV radiation and can even help prevent color fading in dyed hair. They usually come in the form of sprays or leave-in conditioners that can be easily applied to damp or dry hair. These products not only shield the hair but also help maintain its natural luster and color. They often contain nourishing ingredients like argan oil or keratin for added benefits.

Lip Sunscreen

Lip sunscreens, commonly available in balms or sticks, are designed for portability. These products protect sensitive lip skin from harmful UV rays, helping to prevent dryness and chapping. These products are usually water-resistant and offer long-lasting protection, ideal for those who spend a lot of time outdoors. They may also include soothing ingredients like aloe vera or vitamin E.

Hand Sunscreen

Hand sunscreens are formulated to provide targeted protection for one of the most frequently exposed parts of the body. Easy to apply and fast-absorbing, these sunscreens often come in convenient tubes or pumps for easy, on-the-go application. Not only do they protect the skin from UV damage, but they are also often enriched with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter or glycerin.

Special Sunscreen

Waterproof Sunscreen Waterproof sunscreens are formulated to remain effective while swimming or sweating. Typically, these products indicate the duration of water resistance, often ranging between 40 and 80 minutes. Given their capacity to resist water, they serve as the go-to option for beachgoers, swimmers, and athletes. When planning a day by the water, waterproof sunscreen is the ideal choice.
Pregnancy-Safe Sunscreen For expectant mothers, the safety of skincare products becomes an even greater concern. Pregnancy-safe sunscreens are formulated with ingredients that are non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals like oxybenzone and parabens. Nako Cosmetic offers pregnancy-safe options that are both effective and formulated with the well-being of mothers-to-be in mind.

5 Considerations When Buying Sunscreen

#1 SPF Level

The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) level is crucial when selecting a sunscreen. Higher SPF levels like SPF 50 offer more protection but can be heavier on the skin. Lower SPF levels like SPF 30 might feel lighter but may require more frequent reapplication. Take into account planned activities and duration of sun exposure when choosing an SPF level.

#2 Ingredients

Reading the ingredient list is vital for ensuring sunscreen meets the specific skincare needs. Sunscreens can be chemical-based or mineral-based, and some contain additional skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin C. Nako Cosmetic takes pride in formulating sunscreens with only the best ingredients that serve dual functions—protecting from UV rays and nourishing the skin.

#3 Water Resistance

For swimming or sweating, water-resistant sunscreen is essential. These formulas offer extended protection in wet conditions. Water-resistant doesn’t mean waterproof, so always reapply after swimming or sweating. Check the label for the recommended reapplication time to maintain optimal sun protection. Also, keep in mind that towel-drying can remove sunscreen, requiring immediate reapplication.

#4 Skin Type Compatibility

Skin type, be it oily, dry, or sensitive, influences sunscreen selection. For instance, gel-based options generally suit oily skin, while creams and lotions are preferable for dry skin. Opting for a product that aligns with skin type enhances overall skincare and provides specialized UV protection. Choosing a compatible sunscreen ensures not only protection from harmful UV rays but also promotes overall skin health.

#5 Packaging and Application Method

Different sunscreens come in various forms of packaging—tubes, bottles, or sprays. The form factor can affect the ease of application, especially for hard-to-reach areas. Sprays are often more convenient for quick application, while creams and lotions offer more controlled coverage. Select a packaging type that encourages consistent use and meets individual requirements.
