After trying many, many different natural sunscreens, I have come to the conclusion that this is the best option currently available
The criteria for a good natural sunscreen are: 1. high zinc content, 2. non-whitening, 3. easy to apply, 4. water-resistant, 5. no harmful ingredients (preferably beneficial ones), 6. cosmetically acceptable (i.e. doesn't make you look weird).
This sunscreen meets all of these criteria, while no other natural sunscreen I've tried does.
If all you care about is having a natural sunscreen, this is a great product. I need more. This product is beyond greasy. I would never put this product on my face, and I could not imagine putting it all over my body while wearing a bikini. You feel gross no matter how much of it you have on. Sand, dirt, even black flies stick to you because it is so thick and greasy. Will not buy again.
We have been very happy with this sunblock. I have very fair skin and have been out with my kids all summer wearing this and haven't had a single sunburn. It is a little greasy compared to traditional sunblock, but I'll take that over the unknown chemicals being absorbed into my skin. Highly recommend.
I only used this once, never again. It stung my skin and it was so greasy I had to use 3 products to remove it.
excellent, works well, a bit greasy, but switched over to it to avoid chemicals from traditional sunscreen, as such I haven't been burnt yet, works as expected for sunscreen and not whitening at all
Smooth and sinks in quickly not leaving too much white. Smells nice too, not too strong. A little oily, not sure I would use it on my face. Very natural though so gets extra marks for not baking chemicals into my skin.
as previous reviewers mentioned it is a bit greasy, but not white and spreads really well and its not hard to wash off. The face version is not greasy at all, so defintely use both products.
I have severe allergies and this is the only product that I can use. Grest stuff.
This stuff is incredibly oily and smells like sunflower seed oil, but it is GREAT as a waterproof sunblock for swimming. I don't even need to reapply after being in the water, and it's still effective.
This a great mineral-based sunscreen. It does not make your skin white like other mineral-based sunscreens that I have tried. I use this as a facial sunscreen. It is greasy, however on the positive side I have found that my skin feels nicely moisturized and looks refreshed. Another nice bonus is that is a Canadian product.
I love this product. I've tried many natural sunscreens and my search ended when I found Green Beaver. I work the product in the tube for 30seconds or so, then squeeze the product onto my hands and rub between my two hands to disperse. I love the smooth texture of it and it is truly non-whitening. It smells great and our whole family uses it.
Initial impression is that it is very greasy and is an off white slightly yellow colour. It is nonscented but unfortunately there is a scent to the cream that isn't very appealing. Therefore I'd think most people will be turned off by the consistency, colour and scent. I applied it on a beach day and but noticed patches of burnt areas on my legs and arms. I'm sure I applied it evenly but it it seems the like from the other reviews that the oil and active ingredients can separate leading to a false sense of coverage. Therefore I wouldn't recommend this cream because it strives too hard to be mild on the skin that it does not provide adequate sun protection.
Very greasy, and hard to wash off after. I guess this would be good for swimming, but not a nice feeling at the end of the day. Still happy about what is in the product, though.
This product rubs in well and is non-whitening, unlike so many other non-toxic sunscreens. The drawback is that it's extremely greasy and rubs off on clothes.
This stuff is great and is Canadian as well. Of the non-chemical sunscreens we like this one best. It is a little greasy but I can work with it. Will repurchase.
3/5 Lives up to the non-whitening promis but it is very greasy. I don't have the expectation that any water resistant natural sunscreen will come without any draw backs but there are certainly similar natural sunscreens out there that are far less greasy.
Another great product that I trust to put on myself as its gluten free and for my kids is 100% natural and organic :) :) Its a bit greasy, but my kids don't mind it.
Really like this sunscreen! Have used natural sunscreen for many years now and just switched to this brand. Have been very happy with the texture, and how well it rubs in. Have used heiko brand and it was great but took alot of rubbing in and left a white look to us.
Well.ca delivery on this item was super fast. Customer service was incredibly helpful with a few questions.
This is beyond greasy! It looked like I dumped a bottle of vegetable oil all over me, and felt about as good. I was so disappointed in this product. After using it once, it started to separate so all that came out was oil and no lotion at all-I tried kneading the tube to solve the problem but it stayed separated. I will not be buying this again, I feel like I threw away my money!
Is extremely greasing! My daughter leaves the house with a shiny greasing looking face and gets all over clothes. I won't be buying this again.
I'm happy with this product. Surprisingly clear (although it's advertised as non-whitening I thought it'd leave some white residue) and easy to apply. I wear BB cream and blot powder on top and I'm set for the day.
It is oily. It's expensive, and you should get more for the price. But it does work, and it's nice to have a non-toxic alternative!
