The first step in launching your own sunscreen brand is to decide which type of sunscreen you want to sell. There are two main types of sunscreens: chemical and physical.
After I explained this, I will explain what kind of sunscreen we can create.

Chemical sunscreens, like those found in lotions, creams, and sprays, include a dozen components that are absorbed by the upper layer of skin when applied. They react with the skin to absorb UV radiation and transform it into energy before it can damage it. Chemical sunscreens aren’t as thick physically, so they are often put into sunscreens that are specifically made for the face. They can also be found in spray bottles. Since chemical sunscreens must be absorbed, they should always be applied 20 to 30 minutes before going outside.

Physical sunscreen, sometimes referred to as “natural or mineral” sunscreens, have two key ingredients: zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Together, these substances sit on top of the skin and reflect the UV rays away from the skin.

Chemical sunscreens are absorbed by the skin, while physical sunscreens work like a shield on top of the skin. Both types of sunscreens are effective at protecting against UVA and UVB rays (broad spectrum). However, physical sunscreens can be thicker and may leave a white cast on the skin.

Spray Type

Spray-on sunscreens are simple to apply and you’re more likely to use them due to a number of reasons. They are lightweight, dry quickly, and feel less greasy on your skin. It’s a fantastic alternative for people with oily skin who prefer not to use lotion on their hands. Spray-on is less messy than lotion and is easier to access hard-to-reach areas on your body. If you enjoy being outside and must reapply sunscreen every two hours, utilize the convenience of spray-on sunscreen. Use spray-on if you don’t like the feel of lotion on your hands.

Cream Type

Sunscreen creams with all the necessary ingredients are heavyweight and can protect you from harmful sun rays. Creams with moisturising ingredient can be a good choice for people with dry skin, while creams without moisturising ingredient are perfect for those with oily skin. They are an effective type of sunscreen that is sure to give you the best results possible on your skin.

Lotion Type

Sunscreen lotions are effective in preventing squamous cell skin cancer, its precursors to melanomas (the deadliest varieties of skin cancer), and even lesser forms of skin cancer. If you don’t apply lotions, your skin will be without any sun protection, leaving you vulnerable to UV radiation. They’re a little heavier than spray on.

Types Of Private Label Sunscreen

In this section, I would like to introduce some types of sunscreen.

Water-Resistant Sunscreen

Water-resistant sunscreens are ideal for anyone who plans on sweating or swimming while they’re out in the sun. These types of sunscreens will stay on your skin, even when you’re wet, and provide long-lasting protection against the sun’s harmful rays.

Durable Sunscreens

Durable sunscreens are perfect for those who want a sunscreen that will last all day long, no matter what they’re doing. These sunscreens are made with ingredients that won’t rub off easily and will provide you with reliable protection against the sun’s harmful rays.

Moisturizers And Foundation

Moisturizers and foundation sunscreen is a great way to get sun protection while also keeping your skin hydrated and looking its best. These products usually contain SPF 15 or higher and can be used as your daily moisturizer or foundation.

What Is SPF And PA?

SPF, or sun protection factor, is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect your skin from UVB rays. The higher the SPF, the better protection your sunscreen will provide. PA, or protective grade, is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect your skin from UVA rays. The higher the PA, the better protection your sunscreen will provide.

SPF and PA are both important measures of sun protection, and you should look for a sunscreen that has both a high SPF and a high PA.

Things You Should Know Before You Create Your Private Label Sunscreen

Before you create your own private label sunscreen, there are a few things you should know:

SPF Testing

SPF is a measure of how well a sunscreen will protect your skin from UVB rays, which are the main cause of sunburn. The higher the SPF, the better protection your sunscreen will provide. In addition to protecting against UVB rays, it’s important to choose a sunscreen that also provides protection against UVA rays. UVA rays can penetrate the skin more deeply and are associated with skin aging and wrinkles. The best way to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays is to choose a sunscreen that is labelled “Broad-Spectrum”. Broad-spectrum sunscreens will provide you with the best protection against both types of rays.

How Much Does It Cost?

Private label sunscreen is a great way to get the sun protection you need without spending a lot of money. The cost of private label sunscreen will vary depending on the type of sunscreen you choose and the quantity you order.

Required Tests For Global Launch

There are a few required tests that all sunscreens must undergo before they can be sold on the market. These tests include SPF Testing, UVA Protection Testing, Water Resistance Testing.

For example, in Europe there is an equivalent static SPF and water resistance test, again 40-minute water resistance and 80-minute water resistance. Each of these tests is important in order to ensure that your sunscreen is effective and safe to use.
