Product summary

We are worried that "Biossance - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen" might not be able to provide reliable sun protection because it uses a single UV filter (zinc oxide) in a relatively weak concentration.

It contains good moisturizing ingredients and can double as a hydrating day cream.

Sunscreen filters

It is a mineral sunscreen. It uses zinc oxide for sun protection. Zinc oxide almost never irritates the skin or stings eyes, but it can leave a white cast.
