I recently bought JASON Natural Sunbrellas Mineral Based Physical Sunblock SPF30+andÂ am really pleased to find out that this product contains no sun hazard and is rated a very low health hazard of 3 according to the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Report.Â
In simple terms, it means I get sufficient coverage using this sunblock and it’s absolutely safe for my skin.Â YAY!
This hypo-allergenic sun block has no mineral oil, petrolatum or waxes and is fragrance, alcoholÂ plus parabenÂ free.Â Â Thus, it isÂ said to be safe for use on babies and sensitive adults. Using organic and natural ingredientsÂ such asÂ chamomile and marigold extracts, this sunblock also includesÂ 8% Titanium Dioxide and 2.5% Zinc Oxide andÂ both are effective sunscreen ingredients according to the following rating compiled byÂ Environmental Protection Agency.
Because this is a physical sunblock, itÂ works by blocking and scattering sunlightÂ similar to a mirror or tin foil.Â Â The problem however is that it does leave a white cast, and it’s best to be less liberal when applying this sunblock, rubbing itÂ into your skin thoroughly toÂ make sure it’s well blended.
Otherwise, I am quiteÂ happy using JASON NaturalÂ Sunbrellas Mineral Based Physical Sunblock SPF30+ as long as I remember not to overapply.Â In fact, it reminds me of Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense which I was using before.Â I feel adequately defended against the sun plus it isn’t greasy and works well with my makeup as well.Â
I got JASON Natural Sunbrellas Mineral Based Physical Sunblock SPF30+Â from my favourite organic products supplier at Dargon Dors Cosmetics #03-1126, 32 New Market Road (Peopleâ€™s Park Complex).Â It cost S$29.50 before any discounts but you can buy it for lesserÂ from Shopzilla.com.
