Product summary

We do not recommend "NEST Fragrances - Ginger & Neroli Lip Balm SPF 15" because it does not provide good UVA protection. UVA sun rays don't burn the skin, but they still lead to photoaging and hyperpigmentation.

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. The UV filters in this sunscreen are: oxybenzone 2.00% (declared) and octinoxate 7.50% (declared).

Irritation risk
