Q: Is the zinc oxide non-nano? I've learned there are 2 types nano and non-nano. Which type is in this sunscreen. Thanks.

submitted by Sunshine456711 - 3 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question. Our Zinc Oxide sun products, we believe do not fall under the FDA’s guideline defining nanotechnology. However, we know that because there is no global definition, some people still consider these materials to be nanoparticles. We include these ingredients to provide broad spectrum UV protection that can help prevent sun damage and minimize whiteness on the skin. Rest assured, extensive scientific evaluations of these ingredients in sunscreens have shown that they do not penetrate human skin and the FDA agrees that these ingredients are safe.

Q: Does this sunscreen leave a white cast and is it reef friendly?

submitted by mamarecycle - 2 years ago
  • A: Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Dry Touch Face Sunscreen SPF50 contains the mineral sunscreen Zinc Oxide. Zinc Oxide is a white powder that protects the skin against UV from sunlight by absorbing and reflecting the sun’s rays. When selecting a 100% Zinc Oxide SPF product, it is normal and expected for the product to appear white when first applied to the skin. This gives you assurance that you have covered all the areas of the skin you desire to protect. This product forms a lasting layer on the skin but will require some effort to rub it in. The amount of white residue visible on the skin depends on many factors including how well the product is rubbed in, natural skin tone (the white particles can be more visible on darker tones if not rubbed in fully), and personal preference. All of our sunscreens are reef friendly!

This is very matte on my skin, which I love. It leaves no white cast and blends very well. It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy at all. The price is right and the formula would work well on a lot of skin types.

I would gladly have a white film of sunblock on my face than skin cancer. I was recently diagnosed w/precanerous sun spots on my face and have had to go through getting the spots frozen and also using an ointment that has similar effects. The results of this have left my face temporarily red, scabbed and wishing I had paid attention to the warnings of sun damage. If I only knew then what I know now.....WEAR SUNBLOCK, all day, every day. Who cares if it leaves a white film on your skin, that means it's working. I recently got a compliment from someone saying they liked my highlights on my face....I told them it was sunblock. Wear it and stop complaining about the white, thickness. I wish I would have.

I’m docking 1 star because it is really hard to spread but this is a great sunscreen for those of us that like doing outdoorsy things. I’ve worn this to the beach, hiking, even just floating down the river and it works really well to keep my skin from burning or tanning too much. This may not be everyone’s everyday SPF but opt for this one if you’re going to be doing a lot of outdoor physical activities.

What a confusing product- comes out liquid, but spreads worse than clay. Not being able to cover yourself defeats the point of sunscreen. Never mind what a blatant lie the name “sheerzinc” is - it’s like caked on white theater makeup.

Poorly formulated mineral sunscreen

Marisol G - 8 months ago
Terrible, I bought this because it’s a mineral sunscreen (I prefer a physical sun block vs. chemical) with a high percentage of zinc oxide. However it has a terrible formula and is extremely thick, NOT spreadable and definitely not sheer. If you’re looking for a mineral sunscreen with a high percentage of zinc oxide try blue lizard or UltaMD; they have formulas elegantly crafted to sink into skin and blend 1000X better than this one. Mineral sunscreens have to be formulated especially well to prevent everything wrong with this one. It was a horrible purchase and what comes of not reading reviews before buying.

For all the 1 star reviews, SHEER meaning as in nothing other than; unmitigated. Also, do research before making an uneducated purchase then leaving a bad review. Zinc oxide is stark white and has a very thick consistency. All skin pigments could experience a temporary greyish hue. This product has the hight Zinc oxide % that I’ve been able to find (highest available 25%). Even with that downside, it has so many benefits for your skin - wound healing, UV ray protection, and seals in moisture. The BEST part, it prevents darkening of the skin and it should be part of your daily treatment plan for dark spots or melasma.

Pros!! - I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin. I’m also very sensitive to scents. I had no problems with this sunscreen. -Washed off well in the shower, just scrubbed my arms, etc a few times with honest co liquid shampoo. - Water repelling for water fun! I could see the water beading up and running off. -I didn’t burn!!! And I was working outside for 7 Hours. -Cleaner and better for your body than conventional. Cons/ish. -Won’t blend in, but it’s also not supposed to be absorbed by the skin. It sits on top. That’s what mineral based sunscreens do. Put it on lightly then add more if needed. - Definitely looks like paint lol. But again, it’s a zinc oxide based sunscreen.

This is a nice spf for acne prone skin. However, unless you’re extremely pale it’s going to look pretty white. I’m fair and even with lots of time working it in on my face, it still leaves a cast on me. I think if they had given this the slightest tint, then it would be amazing.
