What is the best sunblock/sunscreen that you have ever used ?
Well it sure looks like a great moisturizer with those ingredients. Jojoba esters and Macadamia seed oil. Our chemist friend here, NOTH, would approve.peri, I have one sunscreen that ive been using for a while as well, here it is, check it out and tell me what you think about it NIA 24 Sun Damage Prevention 100% Mineral Sunscreen - SPF30 at LovelySkin.com
Extremely low amounts of those ingredients. You want zinc oxide in the 20%+ range. Will usually leave you ghostly white though. Nano particles could help with this but the jury is still out on nanoparticles. I've not followed it real close. Even at 20%+ zinc oxide with titanium dioxide you are still getting a much lower PPD level than better ingredients such as the Mexoryls or Tinosorbs as the links above describe.sorry that link didnt have all the info, my bottle says it has titanium dioxide 9.45% and zinc oxide 3.6%, makes an spf of 30
That might be accurate. Yea I'm just going by what I've read a couple of times about the PPD rating of 19. Might be way off. ^&)$#! FDA....I guess they want our skin to age, get skin cancer.its hard to pick a good one here in teh states, im in new york all they have here are basically poor poor choices but the neutrogena ones never state their ppd and ive read reports that 85 or more or even 80 can have an actual spf of way less than that
It comes in a 200ml bottle (6.76 ounces)so we are not protected by the sun as much as the europeans, my problem is why does the American Cancer Society label some sunscreens including the ones that i am using teh NIA24 as the best or "recommended" if it doesnt even provide adequate protection. btw peri, how many ounces is the garnier ambbre solaire 50+?
The good european sunscreens often dont give ingredient lists online for some weird reason. This one has both mexoryl sx and xl, titanium dioxide, octocrylene, vitamin E, some kind of hydration complex, glycerin.and what are the ingredients on the ambre solaire, sorry the internet didnt provide enough info.
Yep, I am a Colorescience fan myself!! The clear powder is perfect to use over makeup! I use their SPF lip balm as well.By far: Colorescience SPF30 Mineral Powder Sunforgettable- water-resistant, non-comedogenic because it's made from pure,high-grade minerals (zinc, titanium dioxide,etc) without fillers like rice powder or talc, won't run in your eyes, sheer and non-greasy, broad spectrum (yes, even UVA rays), instant
protection that lasts 6 hours because it's inorganic (non-chemical). Check it our or let me know if you need more info- In creams,go for Jan Marini SPF30 Antioxidant matte-finish block- smells like the islands and comes in 3 tints, or clear. Good luck!
