About this deal

Does anyone have good suggestions for alternatives to the Biossance Squalene + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen?

If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. With no discernable fragrance, the sunscreen is formulated without drying alcohols or icky silicones. It's also claimed to increase the UV absorption of the sunscreen formula as well as to reduce the annoying white cast left behind by inorganic sunscreens. Read on for my honest thoughts on the Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 in this Biossance review.Anecdotally, many individuals have reported that Silicones cause/excerbate breakouts, irritation, cause a feeling of skin being unable to breathe, cause clumping of cosmetic products and find it difficult to wash off. They are good friends because ethylhexylglycerin can boost the effectiveness of phenoxyethanol (and other preservatives) and as an added bonus it feels nice on the skin too. It's especially good for soft to low-viscosity water-in-oil emulsions with non-greasy, pleasant skin feel like lip balms or thick body butters. It’s got a really unique milky, oily texture that’s likely the results of the high level of moisturizing squalane oil — at ingredient no.

Her work has been featured in brands like Women's Health, Good Housekeeping, EverydayHealth, and more. It's quite the multi-tasker: an emollient and water-binding ingredient but also an emulsifier and can be used for stabilization purposes. But that’s not all, ensuring that there is no waste when producing its products, the brand use sugarcane pulp as a fuel source as well as featuring it in its packaging. An emollient and natural moisturizer that can be found also in the sebum (oily stuff our skin produces).one thing to point out though - it is harder to apply makeup over top of it (wasn't as smooth as it normally is) and leaves it looking a bit cakey after a few hours.

When it comes to using this sunscreen under makeup, the user found that it pills under a foundation. Also note, the EU Allergen Free label is not personalized for your own allergies you may have and it does not constitute as medical advice.

I'm always excited when my favorite skincare brands release a sunscreen although the last time that happened, it was a bit of a disaster.

In cosmetics it's quite the multi-tasker: it's an emollient and water-binding ingredient but it's also an emulsifier and can be used for stabilization purposes. Btw, Xanthan gum is all natural, a chain of sugar molecules (polysaccharide) produced from individual sugar molecules ( glucose and sucrose) via fermentation.
