3.0 out of 5 stars Good for sun protection; Bad for vanity July 17, 2009
By Dave
Verified Purchase
I settled on this product after researching SAFE and EFFECTIVE sunscreens on EWG's SkinDeep database. This is a top-rated product in both categories with noncontroversial ingredients. It has a subtle but pleasing green tea fragrance and probably works great, but be forewarned that it will make you noticeably WHITE and is annoyingly difficult to rub in, despite it's liquid consistency. If you're hiking with buddies in the woods, no one is going to care. But if you're looking for a good beach sunblock that won't make you look like a corpse, this is not the product for you. (FYI I am a skin tone #2.)

I have tried a couple of the sunscreens with good ratings on the ewg report's website. The last one I tried (Soleo Organics) was in a base of oil (sunflower) and was very, very oily. I have oily skin already, and the last thing my pores need while I'm sweating in humid, steaming hot Florida was to have more oil slathered over them. I spend a lot of time exercising outdoors, though, so I do what I have to do. I came across this product on the ewg's website, and read the mixed reviews. I had my suspicions that there must be a trick to application to prevent the flakiness. I was right. When you apply this product, you have to spread it over your skin fast, and then let it be. No, you can't rub it in, and don't even try. It's supposed to make a film on your skin (like paint) that acts like a barrier between your skin and the sun. If you keep rubbing while it's drying, you're just going to end up with flakes. It has a pleasant smell, not chemical at all. And, yes, it will give you a very ashen skin hue.

I ordered this product from the manufacturer's website. Very fast shipping.

5.0 out of 5 stars best sunscreen on the market August 29, 2010
I have extensively researched sunscreens, and found this one to be the best for safety and sunscreen action:

1) complaints about a white face - the active ingredients are zinc and titanium dioxide, so yes, they are white. Shake the product well to mix the solids with liquid. The solvent here is just sunflower oil, not the usual toxic chemicals found in other sunscreens. You only need to smear a small amount to cover. Do not "rub in." I noticed that after some time, the whiteness disappears from your face. In the meantime, (for women only) - if you want to look good, dab face powder on all over your face with a cotton ball, then dab on some cheek color. Any whiteness from unlying sunscreen is covered, and I have noticed that the sunscreen under my powder is a great cover for enlarged pores. is a bonus, and I look fine when I go out to a
restaurant or place that I need to look good and not white-faced.

2) Oily skin - this sunscreen does not cause breakouts for me, and I am very acne-proned.

3) Because you don't have to use much, our container has lasted longer than expected.

4) wore the sunscreen when swimming, and provided good sunscreen. Re-apply periodically if you swim.

5) Have never noticed that the smell in the product is bad. Anyone who says "it smells bad" is sadly too accustomed to smelling toxic chemicals routinely added to most cosmetic products. This is an all natural product, and we hope that the company keeps it that way. Those synthetic "scents" added to most of the common household and cosmetic products cause headache, migraine, chemical sensitivity, "allergies," (a host of problems and complaints from people). There is a not a shred of clinical testing performed to show that they are safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thick and white just like me November 9, 2009
Verified Purchase
Used this sunscreen during a recent trip to eco parks in Mexico. I didn't get burned so it is super effective. By the way, the instructions say you're NOT supposed to rub it in. This type of product with these ingredients does NOT rub into the skin, and has to remain on the skin surface to work properly, in a thin layered application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked Great in Mexico February 23, 2012
By Badger
Verified Purchase
I bought this to take to Mexico since a couple of places I was planning to visit required biodegradable sunscreen. I was hesitant after reading the reviews, but it worked great. I'm not sure why others had such issues. A little goes a long way with this stuff. It's not as thick as regular sunscreen so it spreads really easy. Just put on a thin layer - don't rub it in. Covers really well and it works. I spent an entire day on the water either on a boat or snorkeling, and I wasn't even the slightest bit pink at the end of the day. It's different than regular sunscreen, and if you don't spread it evenly, you will get a little white. BUT...this stuff really works.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's white but it works! May 20, 2010
By KvH
Verified Purchase
The other reviewers mention that this stuff doesn't go on clear -- it leaves a white film. Absolutely true, though I've found that if I care, applying it very evenly and smoothing it in as much as I can suffices to make it not-noticeable (I've asked a lot of people whether they could tell my face was a shade whiter than normal -- they hadn't noticed). When I don't care enough to smooth it on so carefully, then yeah, it leaves visible white streaks on my skin. But it's a small price to pay for SPF 50 and no nasty chemicals.

It's also true that it smells like green tea. I mostly like the smell, and other people don't seem to notice it. I asked my chiropractor whether he noticed any odor when he was working on me -- my arms and face were slathered with the stuff -- and he said no (I'm sure he wasn't just being polite). I think green tea smell is a lot better than chemical smell, and I've never seen any sunscreen that doesn't smell like *something*.

I'm pretty sure the stuff works, both from the reviews on the EWG site and the fact that it has so far kept me from getting sunburned. It washes off easily, too, with soap, but seems to be just water resistant enough to be useful for something like windsurfing (where you're not in the water every second). I don't know how it stands up for something like swimming. I'll definitely buy more when this bottle runs out.

Not a good product at all. The way it goes on and does not go into the skin is a nuisance. It does stay on the skin but really does not offer the protection that it is supposed to.
