  • Solar Rx contains no synthetic ingredients like Retinyl Palmitate that is a chemical Vitamin A. Solar Rx uses simple natural whole ingredients to carry the zinc oxide which provides blocking of UVA, UVB and UVC radiation to prevent skin cancer and premature aging.
  • Keys Solar Rx is featured on the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Report as the safest moisturizer with UVA/UVB protection on the market. Key Solar Rx is featured as the most effective non-waterproof category sunblock for UVA and UVB in the Consumer Reports July 2007 issue. It is rare to find a product that is both safe to use and effective.
  • Keys Solar Rx carries a UVB (UV Burning) rating of SPF 30+ and a UVA (UV Aging) of four stars using the EU rating system. It is important to note that 90% of all visible skin aging comes from UVA. Be very careful of sunscreens with high SPF numbers that do not rate their UVA protection. High SPF rated chemical sunscreens will prevent burning, but often do little to provide UVA protection.
  • 20% Concentration of Uncoated Nano Zinc Oxide (~25 nm)
  • SPF 30+ UVB rating. (We recommend the addition of the four (4) Boots Star EU rating)
  • Not water resistant. For everyday use. Not for sports or active uses.
  • Solar Rx combines the healing soothing properties of our Luminos moisturizer and adds a 20% concentration of uncoated nano-zinc oxide to provide a physical UVA & UVB blocking to protect against UV triggered Melanoma and Skin Cancer. Our nano-zinc oxide (ZnO) is uncoated to provide healing therapies associated with zinc oxide. The uncoated zinc has also proven to be anti-bacterial and antimicrobial and can reduce redness, rosacea, age spots and melasma. Solar Rx carries a EWG Skin Deep Rating of 0 (0 to 10 scale where 0 is best).

Product Description

As a daily protection, Solar Rx is designed as a cosmetic moisturizer sunblock to offer the maximum physical protection from UVA and SPF 30 for UVB burning rays without using a chemical sunscreen. We recommend reapplying at least every two hours* on the face neck and hands. Tropical and intense sun conditions require even more frequent application. UV index ratings of 8 and above for average skin can require application as much as every 15 minutes as tested using a UV meter. This is not a product for sun bathing, extreme hot weather sports or swimming

I think this is a great sunscreen for faces. I have rosacea and need to use physical sunblocks. I also am a contact lens wearer, and some chemicals eventually get into my eyes and sting. I won't use products with chemical fragrance or parabens. That leaves me with few options and I've tried lots. Most products leave a white haze, not this one. It also leaves my skin feeling moisturized, but not oily or shiny. I don't like it for all-body, it can be spread too thin. Very nice product. (note- this product does have essential oils and a scent)

I love this sunscreen for my face and neck. It goes on great under makeup and is not greasy at all. It was rated best sunsreen on many websites. I highly recommend this for EVERYDAY use. You should always have at least 30spf on.

Here are the EWG's (Environmental Working Group) five most effective and safest sunscreens (It's been on the news and such lately as well):

1. Keys Soap Solar Rx Therapeutic Sunblock
2. Trukid Sunny Days Facestick Mineral Sunscreen UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum
3. California Baby Sunblock Stick No Fragrance
4. Badger Sunscreen
5. Marie Veronique Skin Therapy Sun Serum

Worst five:

1. Coppertone Lotion Sunscreen
2. Zia Natural Skincare Daily Moisture Screen
3. Formula 405 Aha Day Face Cream
4. Gillette Complete Skincare Facial Moisturizer
5. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Time Complex Moisture Cream

That's why this one is back-ordered a lot this summer.

We did our research on sunscreens (via the Environmental Working Group's website) that had the smallest overall toxicity and was most effective in blocking UVA and UVB. This item ranked #1 or #2 on the list. We've used it for over 1 year in the sub-tropics (Hawaii) and it works well -- haven't yet burned with it on. My husband, on the other hand, has burned when he forgot to apply it (I remembered and was fine). We use it for daily application on our face, hands, and arms. It is not waterproof.

The sunscreen goes on smoothly, is not sticky, and when a thin layer is applied doesn't leave your face totally white. In fact, my face tends to look smoother when I put it on. It doesn't cause pimple break-outs either -- I have combination skin and will get pimples in the sun if I *don't* apply it.

I have read people complain about the smell -- it is very light and reminds me a little of turmeric or orange (depends on the individual bottle). We don't mind it. I had morning sickness during the 1st trimester of pregnancy and the smell was so light it did not make me nauseous, even though all my former shampoos and lotions did. We also liked that it posed the least carcinogenic risk for pregnant women.

Cost is ~$25/bottle -- you might get a little discount if ordering in bulk from the Keys-Soap website (not sure). We got a free travel-size bottle (<1 oz.) when we did that. The cost is worth it to us because of the climate we live in. We highly recommend it.

I am a firm believer that people should protect their skin with sunscreen at all times! That being said, I am also very into natural products that do not contain harmful chemicals and synthetics. I have tried a wide range of natural sunscreens, and they were all super heavy and very slow to sink in, or if they did sink in they left a white or greenish cast (depending on the color of the sunscreen I was trying). Keys Solar RX is amazing! It's a little streaky going on, but soaks in quickly and evenly and leaves no cast. It's pretty thin and spreads very smooth so you only need a little bit. It has definitely improved redness in my skin, I normally have a very red complexion but it has balanced out a lot since I started using Solar RX. It's very moisturizing and leaves my skin with a beautiful texture. It gets a rating of only 1 (0-best, 10-worst) on Skin Deep's cosmetic safety database (google it), which is amazing for a sunscreen. I seriously love this stuff. It's expensive, but it last a long time and it's so worth it anyways. I'd rather pay $30 a year (one bottle has lasted me almost a year so far, and I'm still using it) on facial sunscreen than have melanoma later. Try it!
p.s. Keys Island RX castile soap is amazing too, I use it to wash my face and my skin has never looked or felt better!

I'll have to have more experience with the product through both summer and winter to say finally whether or not it works for my skin. In our hot and humid summer, I find it a little too moist. But still, it's better than other products. I expect to continue to use it and to recommend it to others. I like the way this product doesn't show on the skin, unlike another excellent product I use. In using this, I am following the recommendation from cosmeticdatabase.com.

This sunscreen came highly recommended from two perspectives: an effective sunscreen and no harmful ingredients. However, I could not stand how this product smelled! It smells like last week's dinner leftovers. I have not used it again due to the bothersome odor.

The product works fine but the bottle itself is just horrendous and renders the product useless and harmful. For some reason, there is condensation that occurs inside of the top part of the dispenser that eventually causes mold. I have noticed this condensation happening with every bottle that I have purchased, but never thought anything of it until my husband noticed a slight discoloration at the top around the dispensing spout. I cracked open the top and saw that mold had developed inside all around the top. I WAS HORRIFIED that I have been using a moldy product. I wrote to Keyes about this but never heard back. Apparently they do not care.
