Learn the science behind Coppertone®.

Sensitive skin deserves a sunscreen that's sensitive to its needs.

Studies show people with sensitive skin often experience irritation when using sunscreen. That's why scientists at the Coppertone® Solar Research Center have worked with leading dermatologists to introduce a sunscreen product that offers broad spectrum protection, yet is gentle enough for sensitive skin. The result, Coppertone Sensitive Skin, balances zinc oxide with other active sunscreen ingredients to minimize irritation. It's also been formulated to eliminate the ingredients that often cause adverse skin reactions.

Antioxidants can be your
skin's best friend.

Scientists believe Vitamin E, one of the ingredients in Coppertone® Sport® and Coppertone Kids® with Protective Vitamins products, is a key antioxidant in helping maintain healthy skin. Since Vitamin E levels are easily depleted when skin is exposed to sunlight, it is especially important for kids and active adults to use a broad spectrum sunscreen that also contains antioxidants.

Effective sunscreen protection is more
than an SPF number.

It's about broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection

The sun produces two types of invisible rays that cause skin damage: ultraviolet B (UVB) and ultraviolet A (UVA).

  • UVB rays damage the outer layers of skin and are the main cause of sunburn, premature skin aging and skin cancer.
  • UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the skin and can contribute to premature skin aging and skin cancer. We encounter UVA rays no matter what the season or time of day.

Coppertone® sunscreen products with broad spectrum protection shield you from the effects of both types. In fact, they protect you from the most damaging rays across 100% of the UVA/UVB spectrum.*

*Amount of protection varies across spectrum.
