Q: is this non nano zinc oxide?

submitted by sunscreenbabe - 6 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question, sunscreenbabe. The FDA issued guidelines around the definition of nanotechnology. We believe our sunscreens do not fall under this definition. Rest assured, extensive scientific evaluations of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide in sunscreens have shown that they do not penetrate human skin and the FDA agrees that these ingredients are safe.

Yeah, it leaves a hella white cast. It’s heavy. But it works. Zinc oxide is a powerful, truly broad spectrum defense against UVA rays, long and short. I only wear mineral sunscreens with at least 20% zinc oxide on my face, neck and chest. Chemical screens that are legal in the US lose efficacy quickly as then work. Avobenzone is the only chemical screen that protects against UVA long rays (allowed in the US by the FDA). It’s very unstable. UVA long rays are the ones that confer the most damage to skin. So I stick with zinc. I have sensitive skin and this sunscreen has never caused me any problems. Besides the fact that it makes me look pasty. I don’t care. I live on the beach in the subtropics and I’m protecting my skin.

It is a good product don’t let your skin greasy and feel really light texture. My only complaint is that let the face white but it has a good sun protection.

It works pretty well for sunscreen to protect my face. I have had it for years and still have some left. It is not very moisturizing and it does leave my face feeling a slight bit oily and dry at the same time. It is odd feeling.

Neutrogena makes trustable products. I've used their sunscreen for years, along with their other skin products. I love how Neutrogena makes affordable products that are effective and safe. While this sunscreen does provide me protection and has a matte finish, it has a strong white cast. My skin is fair, but this sunscreen takes it to another level. I look vampiric in broad daylight. I thought mineral sunscreen had evolved - hence, "sheer!" I do find this sunscreen hard to wash off with regular soap - I highly recommend doing a double cleanse. Love to use regularly!

Scented sunscreen that still leaves a white cast on my face. It’s great for coverage but it’s not the easiest to apply due to the consistency of the sunscreen.

I was on the hunt for a facial sunscreen to protect my skin in the summertime. I stumbled upon this, I no longer get burnt in the sun. If you have sensitive skin like me, I would recommend you give this a try.

My favorite sunscreen!! It’s also reef save. Can’t go wrong. It does have a small white cast just like any natural sunscreen with the zinc oxide active ingredient but if you really spread it out it goes away

This face sunscreen is effective and goes on pretty well. It blends to my face well. There is a little bit of a whitecast but not bad. I can use it to check coverage. I like that it doesn't sting as much as chemical sunblock when sweating. Wish the tinted mineral face sunblock came in 50 SPF.

I love this because it doesn't stung my eyes when I'm out in the garden and sweating in the sun. I've never quite understood the "Dry-Touch" aspect because it always seems sticky.

NOT SHEER!

Veronica - 11 months ago
I love this product as far as it not making my face breakout! Its the only sunscreen Ive found that doesnt, cuz im so sensitive to sunscreens! But anyways IT IS NOT SHEER! I hate that it makes my face super pale! Plus it goes on thick! I wish they would make the same exact formula but less thick and actually sheer!

Reb - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Can someone please tell me what does the word “sheer” mean here ? Lol…. I believe either the company has a very different understanding of a product being sheer or they miss spelled the title. Anyway it is veeeery thick, leaves a horrible white cast -no matter how much you rub it-, and it is greasy ….

Unpleasant Smell

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
jk - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
It does leave a white cast. A little less so than some other sunscreens I've tried, but enough (even under makeup) to make it not really workable for me. But the worse characteristic, for me, was the smell. It smelled like ... a tire? I looked at reviews of this same product on another site to see if anyone else reported something similar. Someone said it smells like burned rubber. I wouldn't say it's a strong smell, but it's noticeable and makes me wonder about the ingredients.

Good for swimming, but not sure I'd really call this a face sunscreen. Was very thick, sticky and white which is great for swimming but not useful for day to day use. Formula actually seemed slightly better than the non-face sunscreen.
