Product summary

The ingredient list suggests that "Mad Gabs - 2-Pack Fish Styxx Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen Stick by Mad Gab's" can provide reliable sun protection. It can protect from both UVA and UVB rays. This is great news because not all sunscreens with SPF ratings give UVA protection. (UVA rays do not cause sunburn, but still damage our skin and lead to early aging).

It contains good moisturizing ingredients and can double as a hydrating day cream. Like all broad-spectrum sunscreens, this product helps prevent early signs of aging.

Sunscreen filters

This is a so-called "chemical" sunscreen. It means that it uses organic UV filters. They typically offer good sun protection and rarely leave a white cast, but they can be irritating for some people with sensitive skin. Here are the exact UV filters in this sunscreen: oxybenzone 1.40% - 2.00%, avobenzone 5.30% - 8.00%, octisalate 2.10% - 3.10%, homosalate 3.60% - 5.40% and octocrylene 1.50% - 2.20%.
