Physical(mineral) sunscreens generally the better, healthier option for long-time use, even though it takes longer to rub into your skin and leave white cast or dryness. However, at least Korean Sunscreen category, advanced formulas(different active ingredients along with different forms) in Chemical sunscreens also take care of your skin, no more damage for your skin and protect our environment. Furthermore lots of renewals in popular sunscreens and totally new ones have many benefits for your skin, so I say you should try any types of sunscreens that you will actually use in your daily routine.
