Best blending Zinc I've found
Purchased

I am photo-allergic to chemical sunscreens which has made it very frustrating to protect my skin without looking like a stick of chalk. I am limited in the SPF ingredients I can use; only zinc and titanium dioxide. I don't feel like there is enough research on the use of titanium dioxide, and for both ingredients, I don't trust the human or environmental safety of the nano sized particles that are commonly used. Nano sized particles are effective SPF protection and also blend into your skin invisibly, but I don't want them in my blood or water stream. I have spent so much time and $$$ trying different non-nano zinc and titanium based products that ended up being hard to rub in and left me with a noticeable white cast. Then enters juice beauty. I tried their SPF moisturizer with success and when I saw they had a sport version I was sold! Blends and rubs in easily with a scent my friends constantly tell me smells distinctly like fruity pebbles. It is a bit thick and ever so slightly could be described as greasy, but that is a fair compromise for me since the higher tech matte sunscreens and sprays are not an option. My only caveat would be its lack of antioxidants, which are important in all sunscreens but especially mineral formulas. Otherwise, it is near perfect and on par price wise with other natural mineral sunscreens.

Note: I would NOT recommend this for your face, too thick and too many oils, but for everywhere else it is great!
