Gymmie...last batch I made...had...forgot...but was not borage...was..
...hmmm...Macadamia or sometang? ...Maybe was olive oil and grapeseed oil. Crap....really...don't remember.

*sigh*....Alzheimer's I tell ya....


CoQ10...was going to add ALA to that batch, but was not enough...so threw in what I had [ I know...shoot me] and - from the oils. But that was the formula.

Q10 in with lecithin and oils....then the rest. It's a nice one. B5 and E acetate make for nice slip.

Nice!!
Macadamia I have along with grapeseed and a few others......borage oil .....I wouldn't have enough of for this recipe. Have that on my list of wants/needs at SEA-
Guess I better check my Q10 supply while I'm at it..............goodness, my list keeps growing.

This is great! Thanks so much. Forgive me if this has been asked already, but I have yet to read through all 22 pages- how much sunscreen does this make? I want to make arounf 2 ounces of it at a time.

Can I double up on the ZNO? I am looking to make a sunscreen with an spf of at least 55 if possible?

Thanks!

25% ZnO updated version and the current mix I am using, which I by far prefer over the others. It's light, spreads nicely and stays put without feeling greasy. Very moisturizing on my skin.

Oils 21%
Sea emollient 22%
Vitamin E acetate 1%
H20 17%
Lecithin 8%
Dexpanthenol 3%
ZnO 25%
Poly 80 2%
CoQ10 1%

Go here to calculate the exact amounts based on the total you want to make.

Use the calculator to reduce the total quantity or fiddle with the ZnO content...be warned though...it's a lot of ZnO.

Gymrat does this recipe have the same sort of feel as Burnout sensitive?

Does it work well under makeup? (sorry if this has been asked before, but so many pages of reading to go through, I got impatient lol)

Makes 107 grams as far as I can tell adding it all up, minus 5 grams for the bowl! one ounce = 28 grams

Not Dragon but do you really want to make a 50% zinc Sunscreen? That will surely be like baby butt paste. Too opaque and geisha like to be usable!

Is the zinc content more important than the SPF in a sunscreen?

Different feel than Burnout, and yes you could wear it under makeup with no problems.

does it matter if the zinc is coated or uncoated? Will it make a difference in dispersion and the UVA effectiveness?

I finally had some time for DIY and made that recipe..(for oil,i used broccoli)
it is very light on my face(oily/combo skin and some dry parts,since we are in the middle of winter)..no white cast at all,no greasiness at all..
never ever thought i could make a ss feelling so good on my skin..


a big thanks to DragoN
