Octinoxate is a type of UV filter that absorbs UVB rays from the sun, protecting skin from the damage these rays can causeIt is a common ingredient in sunscreens, moisturizers, lip balms, and other productsTo use it, apply it to the skin before sun exposure and reapply as needed.


There is not enough empirical evidence to mark octinoxate as a safe or unsafe ingredient.The FDA restricts its strength to a maximum of 7.5 % in skin care products.Some studies suggest that it has a minimal effect on humans, but it damages marine ecosystems.Some people may prefer to use alternatives that are more natural or eco-friendly.
