What is non-nano zinc oxide?
Zinc oxide is a mineral and the active ingredient in many mineral sunscreens. It sits on top of your skin (rather than soaking in, like chemical sunscreens do) and scatters, absorbs, and reflects the sun’s rays to protect you. Non-nano essentially means that the particles are too large to pass through the skin. The concern with super-small nanoparticles is that they can find their way into your body by penetrating your skin and getting into your bloodstream. And while a nanoparticle will enter your bloodstream, a non-nano particle won’t.

Does this product contain oxybenzone?
Our new suncare line is completely free of chemical-blocking agents, parabens, sulfates, silicone, and PEGs!

Is this product reef-safe?
Yes! Our full suncare line is reef-safe, vegan, and cruelty-free!

Is this waterproof?
Our new suncare line is 80-minute water resistant.

What’s the difference between the Daily Protective Serum and Hydrating Facial SPF 25?
The Daily Protective Serum SPF 30+ is a super lightweight, creamy serum that applies flawlessly delivering nutrient-rich antioxidants and providing long-lasting protection. The Hydrating Facial SPF 25+ is a rich and hydrating cream that massages beautifully into the skin. Both provide up to 80 minutes of water resistance and are fully vegan. They are both great daily SPF options but have different feels to suit different tastes and do not need to be layered.

Does this offer blue light protection?
Our sunscreens are a great option for all-around protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays! Zinc oxide sits on top of your skin (rather than soaking in, like chemical sunscreens do) and scatters, absorbs, and reflects the sun’s rays - including blue light - to protect you.

What step should this be applied in my skincare routine?
All of our sunscreens are physical-blocking sunscreens meaning that they should be the last step in a morning skincare routine.

Our formulas are created with the highest standards in mind - utilizing clean & safe ingredients to ensure beautiful, healthy skin.

Best clean sunscreen

Really is just an awesome product. I love that it goes on so easy yet it does a great job of protecting my skin. I wore it to the beach yesterday and it did a great job! I used to use this super whitening zinc product so it was great to have a product that didn't leave me all white but is still safe for me and the ocean. 10/10

The best. The end.

Sunscreen is THE most difficult skincare/cosmetic product to buy. It's a trial and error process, & can get expensive. I've tried just about every sunscreen out there, from high-end brands to drugstore buys & everything in between. Chemical sunscreen wears well, but has safety & environmental concerns. Zinc oxide is clean, but can be drying in high concentrations & leave a white cast. I love that this product contains a moderate but effective 12.7%. It's a solid SPF 30 & water-resistant. I also like that it includes skin-loving ingredients & is gentle. But the best part is the performance. 1. The formula is quite thin, which is really important for facial sunscreen. So it's very lightweight on the skin. 2. Zero white cast (light skintone). 3. No irritation, itchiness, or dryness (even around the eyes). 4. Not greasy, shiny, sticky, or uncomfortable. 5. No silicone, so it doesn't pill or stick to dry patches (an issue for me). 6. Wears beautifully under makeup (a must!). 7. It does its job & protects my skin from damaging rays. MH told me that 3 pumps is usually adequate for the face (I need 4) & 2 more for the neck. One con: this serum is pretty pricey at just 1oz. For the typical 3oz volume, you're looking at around $68. But I can't lie... it's worth every penny. Please, PLEASE never discontinue this sunscreen! I'd be lost. I love the tinted version too, but it's not water-resistant. Maybe MH can give that some consideration. 🥰 Thank you for this brilliant product!

I can’t believe this is suncreen!

I feel like I have been searching for this product my entire life! Light weight, non greasy, non sticky, the lightest white cast that seems to absorb away pretty quickly. Feels like nothing but good stuff on my face. Plus it has vitamins! My skin tends to be oily and congestion/break out prone so most sunscreen usually makes these issues worse. This serum does the opposite! Plus sunscreen! Amazing! I almost want to keep it a secret…

Lightweight yet hydrating

Doesn't clog pores and leaves a beautiful clear soft satin finish, no chalkiness or oiliness. Runny out of the bottle but that means it spreads easily and thinly which I prefer. Right amount of hydration alone or over a serum. My face is still fresh and hydrated by the end of the day, and isn't an oil slick!
