  • 1What do you mean by “clean sunscreen”?

    Our sunscreen is mineral-based instead of containing chemical sunscreen agents. What this means is that instead of penetrating into the skin and absorbing damaging rays, Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen disperses reflective minerals onto the skin, reflecting the rays away from the skin. In addition, studies indicate that some chemical UV filters may mimic hormones, and physicians report sunscreen-related skin allergies, which raises important questions about unintended human health consequences from frequent sunscreen application (source, EWG). Our goal is to create a sunscreen that protects the skin without causing unnecessary concerns.
  • 2What is the difference between mineral and chemical sunscreen?

    Mineral sunscreens use Zinc and Titanium, to reflect UV Rays, whereas chemical sunscreens absorb UV rays.
  • 3Why use only zinc and not titanium?

    Zinc Oxide offers broad spectrum protection and blends in more easily for all skin tones.
  • 4Does this replace a moisturizer?

    Typically we recommend moisturizer and SPF. This can replace a moisturizer as it provides protection with hydration so it is perfect for a minimalist routine. If you prefer to use a regular moisturizer as well, be sure to use that first followed by the sunscreen.
  • 5Does this protect against blue light?

    No, this does not protect against blue light.
  • 6What does PA+++ mean?

    PA+++ refers to a measure of protection against UVA rays. Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen is broad spectrum and protects against both UVA & UVB rays.
  • 7Is this sunscreen waterproof/ water resistant?

    This is your daily sunscreen. If you are going to be in and out of water, make sure you reapply. It is not water resistant.
    • As stated in the Drug Facts panel: "Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming"

Terrible reaction even after patch test

I loved all of my many biossance products until this one… I did a patch test before using it, and then started using it just fine until one day I developed severe skin reaction. My skin turned full on red after being in the sun, immediately after it got swollen and entire face was itchy. I am on day 3 and my face is still itchy, a little swollen and red. I read some of the reviewers here, with other people dealing with same symptoms. Something is clearly wrong in the formula and this product needs to be taken down. I am very disappointed as I never experienced any reactions with any type of products (not just biossance) on my skin before, so this product has to be really bad for me to get this type of reaction.

Best. Sunscreen.

This is my favorite sunscreen ever. My favorite moisturizer ever. As good as the rose oil feels on my skin, this might feel better. It gives you that glow but doesn’t leave the white film most sunscreens do. It’s an excellent moisturizer. If you’re going to go minimal on your routine this will do it. Cleanser, eye cream, serum, and squalane sunscreen. DONE.

My favorite

This sunscreen is light and hydrating, my absolute favorite product! It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave my skin greasy. It’s great under my foundation and doesn’t leave any chalky cast.
