Label directions: Apply liberally to face and neck after shaving or when skin needs moisture. You may experience mild tingling or redness. This is normal and temporary. If irritation persists, or is too strong, use once a day, every other day until your skin adjusts. Then revert to daily use. For first use, puncture seal with end of cap.
Label warnings: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If product gets into eyes, rinse thoroughly with water. Discontinue use if irritation or rash appear. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

About the ratings

EWG provides information on sunscreen products from the published scientific literature, to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. The ratings indicate both efficacy and the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in this product - not the product itself - compared to other sunscreens. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.
