Alba Botanica® Very Emollient Natural Sunscreen Mineral Protection Fragrance Free SPF 30 -- 4 oz
i bought this product because it is so natural and not harmful to your skin like other sunblocks. unfortunately, this sunscreen is far too thick. If you want to use it on your whole body you will use a ton!

I really like this! I have been using it for about 2 yrs now. It works well on my sensitive oil skin. Yes it has a slight white tint, but it does not bother me. When I swim it stays on and you can see if it needs to be reapplied. I highly recommend this.

great physical sunblock
this is a great high-zinc oxide sunscreen, free of harsh chemicals and other nastiness. I use it on my neck and arms daily. It leaves a barely noticeable whiteness in the creases of my arms, but much less than some other zinc oxide brands. I don't think it's waterproof, but it has become my go-to sunscreen for everyday use. It also feels nice, like its moisturizing as it protects.

Excellent Chemical Free Sunscreen
I love this sunscreen. It's the only one I can use on my face that does not make my eyes sting. It also does not leave my skin greasy & has great antioxidants in its list of ingredients. I have used this many times as an everyday moisturizer/sunscreen for my face. I do have to say that my complexion is on the light side, so the white tinge of the mineral sunblock does not bother me. If I had darker skin, I would probably not like this sunscreen as much. However, if you want chemical free, unless you can find one in the exact tint of your skin tone (like make up), at this point the whitish tint is the only thing available on the market. I much prefer this to the false estrogens & toxins that chemical sunscreens offer as side effects. Overall, excellent sunscreen, especially for those with a fair complexion.

did not rub in--very hard to smooth over skin--I would recomment the other Alba products. Kept the skin very white.
