Smooth, nourishing formula blends evenly onto skin with limited white residue.
Why is it safer?
Technology: At Beautycounter, we prohibit chemical SPF filters due to their high potential for skin irritation. We prefer to use physical sunscreens, more commonly known as mineral sunscreen. Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, sit on the surface of the skin and physically bounce or reflect sun’s rays away from the skin. Mineral sunscreens are great for people with sensitive skin as well as babies and kids.
Formula: Our lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen lotion uses non-nano zinc oxide. We never use Octinoxate or Oxybenzone, ingredients known to contribute to the collapse of coral reefs around the world making our sunscreens safer for both people and our oceans.
Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating; immediately after towel drying; at least every 2 hours. Children under 6 months: Ask a doctor.
