Caution

Based on EWG's modeling, the UV protection is significantly lower than the SPF value would indicate.

Sunscreens can break down while still in the bottle. To be safe dispose of products when the mixture clumps or separates.

This product contains chemical active ingredient(s) that the FDA does not have enough health safety data to classify as safe and effective: AVOBENZONE, OCTISALATE, OCTOCRYLENE


Before you go outside:
You should not rely on sunscreen alone.
