Reef safe & biodegradable are a requirement for snorkeling or scuba diving in Mexico, as well as at the eco waterparks. This stuff worked great, just got back from vacation....no sunburns!! It's also much easier to apply than the mineral sunscreens, this is a true lotion type sunscreen. We managed to pack it in our carry on bags and were never questioned about the size, which exceeds the 3.4oz TSA rule.
I purchased this for our Cancun trip in June. It worked perfectly and they allowed it into the Xcaret park due to safety for the animals. My entire family got denied their sunscreens and I was the only one able to take mine in. Works way better than the one they give you in the park in exchange for your own sunscreen. Recommend taking it to any natural park.
The Environmental Working Group rates this sunscreen as a 2 (which is good!). I love the smell. I bought about 20 for co-workers to use. There is no point in using sunscreen that is harmful in the long run. I love this product for the ratings and price!
I was looking for a more healthy/chemical free option to apply to myself and my kids. I ended up buying 5 different brands and this was by far my favorite one! It goes on smooth without the chunky white residue some of the other zinc sunscreens left. This product doesn't contain the harsh chemicals of many of the big named sunscreens yet protected the same or better! We didn't get a sunburn until we ran out and had to use another brand. I loved this one so much I'm now going to stock up- ordered 6 bottles from another website because it's not in stock at the moment. Please target bring this back : )
This product is very effective and easy to apply. It is not as costly as some other Feingold approved suncreens. We started using it on just my daughter and now it is my go to sunscreen for everyone in the family.
