DESCRIPTION: A safer sunscreen for safer sun time. Shield your skin from UVA and UVB with this convenient, water-resistant sunscreen stick. Formulated with non-nano zinc and California Poppy, this physical formulation provides effective antioxidant-rich protection, while being gentle and pleasant feeling on the skin. Ultra-moisturizing cocoa-butter infused formula glides on smoothly without leaving a white residue.
HOW TO USE: Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying and at least every 2 hours.
Technology: Beautycounter prohibits 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: Beautycounter's lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen stick uses non-nano zinc oxide. It’s also formulated with organic coconut oil and organic shea butter to deliver an ultra-moisturizing experience without the need for neurotoxic preservatives and serious allergens like MIT (Methylisothiazolinone). And, Beautycounter never uses Octinoxate & Oxybenzone ingredients known to contribute to the collapse of coral reefs around the world making its sunscreens safer for both people and our oceans.
