How do you make your own moisturizer with SPF?

I know that mixing in your sunscreen and moisturizer together will cut the SPF number in half (e.g. moisturizer with no SPF + sunscreen with SPF 30 = SPF 15).

Do you just put zinc oxide in it? What do I put in the moisturizer?

My motive is to create a DIY tinted moisturizer with SPF and zinc oxide percentage of at least 20%.
I don't see those in the market or Internet these days so far, so it's better if I just make one myself.

If I can't combine my local products, what do you suggest I do to make a tinted moisturizer with at least SPF 30 and at least 20% zinc oxide?


It would be greatly appreciated.

No wrong chemicals here.......this is just using a basic moisturing cream mixed with some great coated zinc Lfree. No worries with this at all.

grape seed is an oil, that is great for the skin........the poly 80 will blend the oil with the lotion so there is no seperating.
