On our trip to Hawaii, we purchased five types of safe sunscreens considered safe by the Environmental Working Group ([...]), in order to do our own "research" on the effectiveness and ease of use for each product and settle on one for all our future trips. We did a comparitive analysis of the products, using each of them multiple times throughout our trip. (You may see these first two sentences when we review the other products. Sorry about that.)

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 really do love the application of this sunscreen. It's like a liquidy cream, and it smooths on very nicely. It doesn't leave me feeling greasy or tacky, or like I have a film on my skin. So I would give it 5-stars for application. Unfortunately, the new formulation of 5% Titanium Dioxide and 5% Zinc Oxide is just not enough protection. This product is listed everywhere with 10% Titanium Dioxide and 4% Zinc Oxide but the formula has changed. I purchased three bottles, one from Amazon and two from Diapers.com, and all three have 5% TD and 5% ZO. I bought them thinking that I was getting 10% TD and 4% ZO.

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:

Score: 2
UVB: good
UVA: good

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:

Score: 2
UVB: good
UVA: moderate

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.

I have tried several mineral sunscreens for my kids, including California Baby, and I like this one the best. It rubs on easily, soaks in well and doesn't leave the skin greasy. Unlike California Baby sunscreen, it doesn't leave my kids looking like ghosts. Their skin is soft after using this and works very well, no burns yet. I also like that it has no scent.

I like this sunscreen a lot. I have been very concerned about toxic chemicals and ingredients that go into everything we put in and on our bodies, including sunscreen. This product is safe, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), and it rubs in reasonably well. Typically, the sunscreens that are safe are thick and white and often hard to rub in, but this one meets the safe and functional/attractive test. I recommend it. It also doesn't have any weird or bothersome smells.

Of course, it's more pricey than the usual sunscreen, but that's how it goes with the safer products.

I was looking for a non-chemical sunscreen for me and my children. I tried California Baby but it is too thick and white looking. I also tried Badger but it is too greasy and white. This is the only sunscreen I found that is easy to apply, is not greasy and does not look white on the skin. I have not used it in the water yet but have used it playing tennis and it kept me from burning after several hours in the sun and no re-application. It also does NOT have Vitamin A which can acclerate skin cancer. I highly recommend this sunscreen!

I love this sunblock for my almost-2 year old (and have used it on myself a couple of times). I always use a sunblock on her with physical blockers rather than chemical, since they are supposed to be safer and not absorbed through the skin. The other 2 we have been using until this product was introduced were California Baby and Neutrogena Pure & Free. Both of these seem to be thicker and harder to rub in and get the white glow to disappear. Episencial is very smooth to apply and easy to rub in.

Love this sunscreen- very easy to apply, non-irritating, not greasy, pleasant smell & works for me & my young children - but I can't give it 5 stars as it is not waterproof so in the summer months I shall have to use Badger when we are playing in the water. If they made it waterproof it would be perfect!
