  • 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"

Where has this been all my life?!?

I only use mineral based sunscreen and as we all know, mineral sunscreen is typically much heavier than chemical sunscreen...until now! I don't know what kind of sorcery you guys do, but as soon as I got my package I had to test the sunscreen and omg, I am speechless!! The consistency of this stuff is so light and it just glides right on, no joke! I use another brand's natural CC cream sunscreen and I love it for several reasons including the tint but honestly, after trying this, unless I'm going for a no makeup look and want a little bit of tint, this is my new go-to! Just WOW! I have quickly become a super fan of Biossance and I am thrilled to have found my forever sunscreen <3 I hope you make a full body sunscreen soon because I will be first in line!

Great sunscreen

My first time using this product and I am impressed. I’m fair skinned and typically I get a white cast from mineral products, not so with this. . Very easy to apply and disappears quickly leaving a nice glowing finish that does not feel greasy while it moisturizes. Bonus points for not bleeding into eye area or irritating the eyes. Will definitely repurchase. Do wish it came with a higher SPF.

Excellent sun protection and clean skin care

I use the product all the time when I go on vacation in intense sunny destinations like Palm Springs and Mexico. The product has given me extraordinary protection from sunburn. I have not had to put a lot on to get the protection. The cream soaks into my skin and becomes invisible within 5 minutes.

Dewy Sunscreen

I really like this sunscreen! Unlike other sunscreens, it doesn’t have a weird smell, which is great. It does feel a tad oily when you first put it on but once it dries, it leaves you with a beautiful dewy glow. My skin doesn’t feel oily at all.
