Tinted sunscreen is as it says in the name, it is a sunscreen that comes in different shades to match your skin tone. It is great because they contain mineral (ultraviolet) filters combined with added pigments. The minerals in tinted sunscreen are normally zinc oxide and titanium dioxide with added pigments, pigmentary titanium dioxides, and iron oxides, which create the visible, skin tone color that can reflect visible light.    Our South Florida Dermatology offices have put together a list of some tinted sunscreens for different skin types.
