Live Long Sunscreen
Has 25% zinc oxide percentage to make this sunscreen an SPF 30. Plus the carrier oils in this formula have sun-filtering properties. The iron oxide and rice powder also have sun-filtering properties.
We only use non-nano zinc oxide. We made the decision years ago not to go with the tinier sized particles.
Lightly tinted -- we use brown iron oxide to take that "white" look from our sunscreen. Add a little color to your skin. Blends into the skin better--even more sun protection. May stain light clothing.
Our Live Long Sunscreen feels different from chemical-based sunscreens. It will leave a "sheen" on the skin and does feel oilier than the chemical based sunscreens. We have not had any issues of our Sunscreen causing acne or breakouts. The oxides can have a drying effect on the skin.
Gentle enough for babies. Strong enough for redheads.
Protect your skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays. Remember to re-apply every couple hours especially if you are in higher elevations. The ozone layer is thinning. This is letting more UV rays through the atmosphere.
The zinc oxide provides full spectrum sun reflective protection of 22. Then the oils in this sunscreen are sun-filtering oils. I compare the SPF factor of Live Long to a commercial, chemical sunscreen of 30.
The Lavender essential oil provide protection from insects; as well as being beneficial to skin.
Reapply often, especially after sweating, swimming, exercise. It can be rubbed off when active.
Active Ingredients: 25% zinc oxide; hazelnut oil; walnut oil.
.......I think the Sunscreen is great.......Just got back from Florida where the bugs are biting and I had no bug bites!! I even liked using it when I was not in the sun!!! I also have a contact allergy to what seems like everything. I have tried over 10 organic/natural sunscreens and yours was the ONLY one that did not irritate me!! Thank you again!!
