6% Titanium dioxide
3% Zinc Oxide
I would prefer a higher percentage of Zinc Oxide than that of the Titanium Dioxide, simply because ZO is more effective according to studies

Regarding the 'chlorides' answer given, this is incorrect. These chlorides do not function as sunscreens. Having developed many sunscreen products I know this.
The multiple chlorides listed at the tail end of the ingredients list are sunscreens.
6% Titanium dioxide, 3% Zinc oxide
Although it has sunscreen, the % of zinc oxide is quite low - only 3%. I was hoping it should've been at least 6%. My dermatologist told me zinc oxide is the best mineral to block UV rays, particularly UVA. Zinc oxide is more effective than titanium dioxide, and much more effective than the chemical ones.
