The Episencial Sunny Sunscreen was extremely effective at preventing sunburn and also prevented any skin reactions from one member of our party who reacts badly to sunlight in even very limited exposutes. (Think lupus, or m.s., for example.) Of the five we tested, this product was also one of the easiest to apply and the least likely to dry your skin out.
That said, this product was more expensive than some others that we tested and that worked equally well for most of our group. If you have a large family or a tight budget, we would recommend trying the Blue Lizard first.
I emailed Episencial and was told that they figured out how to lower the active ingredients (TD and ZO) by adding other supposedly natural sunscreen ingredients like beeswax or something... The previous formulation is rated by EWG as:
I was iffy about the good/good rating (I strongly prefer UVA: excellent) but I continued to use it because I liked the application and I have three bottles.
I took the time to enter my own report with the new formulation on EWG's website, and it only rated as:
I would only rate the new formula at 3-stars for protection. As much as I love this sunscreen application-wise, I just can't bring myself to keep using it with only a moderate rating for UVA protection.
**Update May 2014
Episencial reformulated again, and I now hate their sunscreen and have changed my rating to 1 star. The new formula is Titanium Dioxide 11% and Zinc Oxide 5.5%. I do not know the EWG rating on this new version. I bought a tube to try it out and it's terrible.Read more ›
Of course, it's more pricey than the usual sunscreen, but that's how it goes with the safer products.
