My girlfriend is a little overboard with her love of organic products, and sun care is one of those things that is very difficult to find a good organic solution for. So, for the most part she just doesn't use sunscreen, which is the worst case scenario in my mind. She gets sunburned like crazy, then complains about the peeling over the next few days, but never does anything to fix the cycle. So, I tried buying a couple products, but according to her they were chalky or chunky, or just kind of didn't rub in well, or felt weird or gross. Anyhow, the point is I recently got this for my girlfriend in advance of a trip we did to Palm Springs (lots of hanging out by the pool, etc), and she absolutely loved it. I was stunned. For what it's worth, I tried it as well, and it was good. I'm not all into the organic stuff like she is, but to me it just felt like a normal sunscreen.

Just like regular sunscreen, but without all of the chemicals!

It covers well and doesn't have any crazy smell or greasy feeling. I don't burn very easily, but my wife does and this did the trick for her and allowed we to ween out all the old crap in the cabinet in favor of something that isn't full of chemicals!

Great Job, keep up the good work!

I love that it is organic, has natural ingredients, and all those super healthy for the skin ingredients. I apply it every morning under makeup or by itself... the only down side, is that I cannot reapply it or put more on. I am not sure if the small amount (dime sized) i put on is actually effective. In addition, I exfoliate frequently (once or once every other day) with care, and remove dead skin cells once or twice a week... but despite that, almost everytime I put this on, little bits of skin start to peel off slightly. Perhaps the aloe in it or something else makes it very exfoliating, this isn’t bad, accept that I have to rub it off to get off the skin, and then I feel the need to apply more, which then goes on white. It definitely leaves white residue the more you put on, and the first time I put it on, my skin looks a little pasty and I don’t feel attractive. So that is the only down side. Problem may be that I ordered the water proof one which is too heavy for everyday use. I have been SEEKING a sunscreen, chemical free for daily face wear that I can REAPPLY that has no checmicals that does not go on white or feel messy. Bah humbbug. I resorted to a really nice brush on sunscreen, but they are expensive. When my husband and I move to Hawaii next year... I will need something better that I can keep reapplying--I am super fair. People call me a porcelain doll.. but with a pink hue. If anyone knows of any without chemicals, let me know...

Once I got educated on how much gross stuff is in typical sunscreen I went on the search for a high quality natural mineral sunscreen. I am in love with this product. Goes on smooth, pleasant scent, and rubs in well. We've phased out all our other sunscreens and my husband and I use this product exclusively.

This is a great all natural, effective sunblock. I've tried their SPF. 15,30 and 40. Obviously with higher SPF, there is more zinc and titanium, which means more whitish tint. I've found, though, that all 3 will go on more smoothly if you rub it between your hands and then apply to your face, body, whatever. You only need a thin layer of it. Also, it looks more whitish in the beginning...after some time, you will notice the whitish tint go away almost completely but not 100%. I would suggest using the spf15 or 30 for the face and the SPF 40 when you go out to the pool since it gives more protective barrier. I love the fact that the first ingredient isn't water but aloe. Also, there is eucalyptus oil so it smells faintly of eucalyptus but I don't mind bc I love the smell and it goes away after a bit. The price is also pretty affordable compared to some other all natural sunscreens. It has been rated a 1 by EWG. The only downside is that bc this is so fast absorbing you need to apply and spread on the skin pretty quickly. If you don't and keep rubbing after it has dried, you will notice little bits of it actually coming off, which means less protection.

I like this sunscreen because it doesn't leave any sticky film on my skin This prevents my long hair from getting greasy like it does when I have other sunscreens on my neck. I also like that it is non-toxic, e.g., no chemical perfumes.

Since it does leave a white film, I use it on my body rather than my face.

It's a thick mineral sunscreen and so provides a good layer of protection. It doesn't appear to rub off very easily. Doctor says mineral based sunblock actually provides a physical block from sun's rays vs. sunscreen which does not completely block out, i.e., simply screens rays.
