Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Our baby-friendly sunscreen uses 100% mineral, non-nano zinc oxide for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection that works for the whole family. This lightweight, fast-absorbing, non-sticky formula rubs in easily (no ghostly white cast—seriously!), protecting from the sun’s harmful rays. Plant extracts also moisturize and calm the effects of infrared—the type of light that causes skin to heat up—to keep baby’s skin comfortable. And because our sunscreen goes on sheer and is made with non-comedogenic ingredients (i.e., they won’t clog pores), moms love it for themselves, too.

Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Clean ingredients you can trust

Safely protects from the sun

Instead of risky chemical UV absorbers like oxybenzone and octinoxate (ingredients that can damage reefs and marine life), we use reef-friendly, non-nano zinc oxide to provide broad-spectrum protection. Not only that, we obsessively tested it to make sure it actually rubs in and disappears on skin (for real!).


Cools and calms

Wild gooseberry extract helps calm the effects of infrared light, which can heat and irritate baby’s delicate skin—while plant-derived antioxidant bisabolol calms irritation and moisturizes.


Replenishes what they’re born with

Squalene is a skin-moisturizing superhero all babies are born with, but it depletes over time. Our stable version, renewable, sugarcane-derived squalane, helps sunscreen glide on, adding weightless moisture to help bring natural balance to the skin.

My search is FINALLY over

Guys I have spent 31 years searching for sunscreen that met my standards and did not break out my very sensitive skin in red, rough bumps. I must have a mild allergy to many common sunblocks because I have tried EVERYTHING, both chemical and physical, including my most recent purchase of Cyberderm sunwhip, which I thought would be the answer to my prayers.......it wasn't, it *immediately* broke me out. Probably too many silicones. This struggle also means I have spent 31 years not really wearing sunscreen, which is really shooting myself in the foot when it comes to my detailed and careful skincare regimen. Like why bother if I'm not doing the basics, but I felt like I COULDN'T because what's the point in protecting your skin from daily sun damage in the long-term if it makes your skin look horrible in the short-term. Anyways, I had just about given up hope and resigned myself to staying indoors with the shades down for the rest of my life when I came across this sunscreen in an Instagram ad. Based on the fact that it met my first 2 criteria (physical-only, a HIGH enough concentration of zinc oxide, and supposedly made for sensitive skin) I gave it a desperate shot. I've been wearing it daily for 2 weeks and I love it so much I could cry! It makes my skin look amazingly glowy and dewy, has the perfect amount of moisture, and actually seems to be helping my skin rather than breaking it out! I never thought I would see the day!!!! Of course, best of all is the fact that I now have the peace of mind that I'm protected from accumulating sun damage (UVA AND UVB) on a daily basis. I no longer have to dread putting on sunblock and "save" it for when I'm going outside in the direct sun all day. That damage you get from sitting in your window on a cloudy day or driving back and forth to work is just as bad because it really adds up. Your skin can't heal from prior sun damage if you aren't protecting it super well, the same way a sprained ankle will never heal if you keep walking on it. Thank you Pipette!!!!!

Love product

Love this sunscreen! I have experimented with various brands! No white film from zinc! My skin is extremely dry & pale, therefore, I like the slight dew that remains on skin. Will definitely reorder.

Best face sunscreen!!

This sunscreen is amazing!! I am 23 years old and have recently been trying to make sure I am putting sunscreen on every morning before my makeup. In the past two months I have tried (and returned!) 4 in search of the perfect one. I saw an ad on Instagram for this and saw it was clean and fragrance-free. Ordered it and I am in love. If you do not like a dewy look for your face this is not for you, but I am obsessed. It is perfect under makeup, and absolutely no white cast- and I am fairly tan! Will keep re-purchasing, although since I don’t use it for my body (but I probably will when I need to) this while probably last a long time. Try this one out if you are looking for a face sunscreen with no white white cast and will act as a dewy primer for your makeup. Can’t wait to try more of your products!

Affordable

This sunblock ticked all my boxes: clean/safe, fragrance free, mineral, under $20. I love that squalane and glycerin are among the top ingredients, and that the amount of zinc is on the highest end found in sunscreens! I won't buy anything with less than 15% zinc oxide because I don't believe that's enough protection, so for this to have 20% and SPF 50 is a winner. Also, this is actually affordable and you get a good amount of product at 4 oz!! I'm not afraid to use it liberally unlike the more expensive sunblocks that only give you 1-2oz bottles. As far as a white cast, I'm Asian so it doesn't effect me. I love the dewy finish (who doesn't want to glow??), but I also have drier skin so I don't feel particularly oily or greasy. It's slightly sticky but I haven't yet found a mineral sunscreen that isn't. Overall, for its ingredients, price point, and amount, I think this is a great daily sunscreen!

No white cast, however it is greasy

I love the packaging of this sunscreen and was quite amazed as to how the white cast within minutes melted away especially with having a high dose of zinc. However it left behind a heavy greasy appearance that doesn’t dry down. If this sunscreen had more of a matte finish like other ones I use I would LOVE it.p
