The appropriate scientific terminology for UV filters is organic (chemical, these as avobenzone, octocrylene or oxybenzone) or inorganic (bodily, these types of as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide).
Equally types work by absorbing the rays and turning them into heat, but with inorganic aka bodily sunscreens, in between 5% and 10% of incoming rays are mirrored and scattered.

With organic filters (‘chemical’ in the traditional, non-scientific perception), the UV rays are mainly absorbed and turned into warmth in the skin.

Always apply last immediately after moisturiser, in advance of makeup – until if not stated.
Reapply just about every two hours if in active sunlight (on holiday, sunbathing, normally becoming exterior all working day).
Reapply after swimming or extreme sweating/drying off with a towel.
