IÂ must get my hands onÂ Keys Solar Rx SPF 30+ SunblockÂ because this is now the safest and most effectiveÂ product in the market.Â
Keys Solar Rx SPF 30+ is currently featured on theÂ Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Report as the number oneÂ safest sunblock on the market.Â Â Badger SPF 30 has moved to second spot since my last feature on the best and worst sunscreen list.
On top of that, Keys Solar Rx SPF 30+Â is also rated the most effective non-waterproofÂ sunblock for UVA and UVB in the Consumer Reports July issue.Â
Based on what I’ve read, what’s great about Keys Solar RxÂ SPF 30+ Sunblock is that this is a chemical-free, non-allergenic lightweightÂ lotion with broad spectrum UVA and UVB blocking 30+ protection which combines cosmetically clear transparent nano-zinc oxide.Â Which means it is transparent on the skin when applied, and can be worn under moisturizer and makeup beautifully withoutÂ leaving any white cast.Â Â The product is also 100% vegan with no animal ingredients, by-products or animal testing.
I was initially concerned over theÂ nano-zinc oxideÂ because I’ve written about avoiding nano-based sunscreenÂ before.Â In fact, at EWG Skin Deep website, there is a highlight aboutÂ this particular ingredient.
An estimated 30% of sunscreens with zinc oxide contain nano-size particles. Micronized zinc offers greater sun protection than conventional zinc. However little is known regarding potential health effects of micronized zinc oxide–especially the nano-size fraction.
However, this particular ingredient in Keys Solar Rx SPF 30+ sunblockÂ has been flagged a rating of 3, which isÂ of moderate hazardÂ andÂ as a whole, the sunblock has a low health hazard of 1.Â So my take is that,Â the productÂ should be safe for usage.Â
And the good thing is the 100ml bottle is quite reasonable at US$19.95 with options for international shipping available.Â So I’m definitely going to get this soon!
