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 - 4 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.

for reference, I am 18 with combination skin and moderate breakouts at times. I had been using the Coola sunscreen with niacin-amide in it and I had no real problems with that one, but I have been experiencing some pretty cystic breakouts so I thought maybe niacinamide was behind these. so I decided to try this product. I have a lot of anxiety about trying a new product because I’m so scared it will break me out! The texture of this sunscreen was super nice. I could put a lot of and it blended right in. it also wasn’t super greasy looking or too matte, which is great for my combination skin. I will say it has the slightest “sunscreen” scent to it, which I don’t mind because it reminds me of the beach! It also had very slight peeling, but it wasn’t too bad at all. I am curious to see how this will last throughout the day. but first impression, I love it!

I’ve been using Neutrogena sunscreens for years. They are a reliable choice for sun protection. They offer broad-spectrum coverage, have a lightweight and non-greasy texture, provide long-lasting protection, and often include beneficial skincare ingredients.

Great protection from the Florida sun. The texture is not greasy, but very light with a mild, pleasant scent. It absorbed fast and evenly into my skin.

Works great for swimming and snorkeling. I used it for a trip to the Maldives and didn't get a sunburn the whole week. This sunscreen is incredibly white and sticky so would be hard to use as a daily sunscreen. I'd primarily recommend this product for swimming especially in areas with coral reefs (e.g. Mexico, Hawaii).

I had to put on sunscreen on my face after a medical procedure and it didn't hurt. That was huge since my face was very red. It goes on pretty white but soaks in after a few minutes so you don't end up with a white face. Very happy with this product.

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.

Excellent product! Easy to apply & easy to rub in (I need to rub it in so I don’t have white stripes). I like this much better than the liquid versions as it does not get in my eyes.

It easily goes onto clothes and bags and is extremely hard to remove. It simply destroys them. Also, allergy alert! Makes you feel itchy. Throwing it away after a single use.

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.

Just before going to my Fla. home for the winter I visited my dermatologist who found a small basel cell carcinoma on the tip of my nose. I couldn't get in to have it removed until after I returned from the Winter down there. I immediately got this item when I got there and glad that I did. Easy to use, and easy to remove and reasonably priced.

Love this product! It's the real deal! It seems sticky coming out of the tube but it applies smoothly and easily! I use this between moisturizer and foundation, allowing for a couple minutes drying time between layers. I strongly recommend this product!
