  • 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"

Moisturizing, but leaves white cast

I really like this sunscreen. It doesn't burn my eyes and it's moisturizing so I coukd skip the moisturizer if I wanted. However, this does leave a white cast on my dark skin. If you put a thin layer, it's not too bad, but that would not be enough for full protection. I'll continue using this, but I'm unsure if I'll repurchase.

Best sunscreen for sensitive and dry skin

I love this sunscreen , it is amazing for my sensitive skin. It doesn’t cause my skin to get red or develop a rash . I also love that it has a dewy glow finish to it, making my skin looks healthy. It doesn’t leave a white cast and doesn’t flake throughout the day. I don’t wear much makeup but this serves as a nice base under my tinted moisturizer.

Need this in Canada!!!!

If anyone know where I am able to purchase this in Canada please help a girl out!!!!! I absolutely adore Biossance products as a whole, and I know this would be a step up from my current SPF! I typically stick to mineral based sunscreen (just preference). I'm not 100% sure, but just glancing over the ingredients, I'm unsure what within this product isn't allowed in Canada but if anyone else knows that, also feel free to educate me!!!! Please Biossance let your Canadian babies glow this summer!!!!!

Does its job

I have normal and brown skin that gets hyperpigmentation from acne easily.. I do have some dry patches on my cheeks. After watching the video and watching the darker woman put the sunscreen on and watching her rub the sunscreen into her skin, I was sold and bought the larger bottle. I've had my eyes on the SuperGoop Unseen Sunscreen for a while (I've tried previously) because of its makeup primer-like texture and it basically looks invisible, but I absolutely love Biossance products and I wanted to try their sunscreen. Once I put it on, there was still a very sheer layer of white (expected for mineral sunscreen like this) and a very sheer shine but my skin absorbed the shine and it wasn't noticeable after maybe 15 min. It wasn't completely invisible like what the product description says but for the first hour it was doable. I also didn't set the sunscreen with any powder or setting mists and I then washed my hands. That day I tried it I went to my local farmer's market. I have long and I need to brush it out of my face every now and then so after a slightly breezy day at the farmers market, I constantly felt like there was something chalky on my hands and my fingers kind of soaked up the sunscreen and I could feel it throughout the day. I didn't like that very much. I haven't been outside and needed to put the sunscreen on again, but that was just my first impression. I'm not completely happy but I'm also not completely disappointed because it's like most sunscreens out there that still advertise no-grease, "invisible". This product is NOT GREASY! But it is chalky. Price point is disappointing for what I got though. I did like how thin it was when it's squirted out of the bottle. Normally sunscreens are super thick. And there's practically no fragrance which is also a plus. Room to improve! We'll see how it goes and I'll write another review after using multiple times!
