Shopping Annuity® Brand Premium Sunscreen - Single Tube (4 oz. / 118ml)

$9.95 USD

Skin is our body’s greatest protector. It is the first line of defense against exterior elements, like germs, weather or moisture. Skin also functions as a regulator for body temperature, fluids and sensory perception (i.e. cold, health, touch, pain).1 This is why it’s so important to take care of your skin.On those picturesque days when you’re out enjoying activities under blue skies, and even on cloudier days, never ending sun rays can do damage in no time! Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Sunscreen aims to shield your skin from the sun’s harsh rays. Our SPF 30 sunscreen is mineral-based and contains zinc oxide, an ingredient providing effective protection mild enough even for most people with sensitive skin. Mineral sunscreens, also known as physical sunscreens, contain mineral compounds such as zinc oxide that sit on top of the skin, reflect, scatter, and absorb ultraviolet rays.2 According to the EPA, these mineral compounds do not typically cause allergic reactions.2 No matter your age, race or ethnicity, everyone is subject to the potential dangers of sun exposure – UV radiation. UVA rays penetrate the skin and contribute to premature aging, while UVB rays primarily affect the surface of the skin and are the main culprits of sunburn.2 When you go outside unprotected – whether the sun is blazing or it is cloudy, hot or cold – you risk the chance of exposure to UV rays.  Sunburns increase the risk of developing skin cancer. Add our Premium Brand Sunscreen to your skincare routine to help provide an important layer of defense against the sun!

FAQ

Who can use this sunscreen?
Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Sunscreen is safe for all ages over 6 months to use.  Ask a doctor before using this product on children under 6 months of age.

Is this sunscreen broad spectrum?
Yes, our SPF 30 sunscreen is broad spectrum – UVA + UVB protection.

Is this sunscreen waterproof or water-resistant?
No.

Do I need sunscreen even though it’s cloudy outside?
Yes. Many experts, including the American Academy of Dermatology, recommend the use of sunscreen every day you are outside, because you can still be negatively impacted by sun rays.3

When else should I use sunscreen?
According to the World Health Organization, physical surfaces can reflect sun rays. Snow can reflect up to 80% of UV radiation, dry beach sand about 15% and sea foam about 25%.4 Which means your skin will benefit from wearing sunscreen anywhere you go outside.

Is your sunscreen mineral-based or chemical-based?
Our sunscreen is mineral-based and uses zinc oxide as its active ingredient. Mineral sunscreens sit on top of the skin, reflect, scatter, and absorb ultraviolet rays. Instead of acting as a barrier, chemical sunscreen agents absorb ultraviolet rays and change them into heat. The benefit of an active mineral sunscreen is that they work instantly once you are exposed to the sun, because they block sunrays. Whereas chemical sunscreens need time to be absorbed by the skin prior to working.

How do I use this product?
Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply: at least every 2 hours; immediately after towel drying.  Use a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating. Children under 6 months: ask a doctor. Sun protection measures: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease the risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including: limit time in the sun, especially from 10 am - 2 pm; wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses.

What is the best way to store this product?
Store in a cool, dry place. Keep away from excessive heat and direct sun.

doesn't contain avobenzone

I have hard water with iron and any suncreen that gets on my clothing stains my clothes a bright orange. Mineral based sunscreen does not do that. If you have hard water, try this.

Yay For Clean Ingredients, Mineral Based Sunscree

I am so super pumped to see that our company has chosen a mineral based sunscreen and has stayed away from the potential toxic ingredients found in most sunscreens. There is a skincare company who is helping change the industry standards to get cleaner products to the consumer, they have a NEVER LIST that helps people know which ingredients to keep away from. I am super proud to say that this sunscreen passes with flying colors!!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this.

Reef Safe

Glad to see that this sunscreen is Reef Safe! Specific sunscreens are banned in Hawaii as the ingredients are harmful to the coral reefs. This one is safe!

Goes on white, but it's not super thick

Most decent sunscreens that don't have the irritating ingredients seem to be zinc oxide, like ours. Others, however, are super thick and nasty when you apply them, and this one is not. It does not blend into the skin well, and makes you look a bit like a ghost when wearing it, though. Also, I would really prefer a sunscreen that is water proof. I will use this one when I decide to not go in the pool, though.

Hello,

We received your feedback regarding the Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Sunscreen and wanted to reach out with our thanks! We are glad you are enjoying this new product and its smooth application. Mineral based sunscreens do tends to leave a white cast, as you mentioned, due to the way they protect from the sun. This product acts as barrier between your skin in the sun, essential reflecting damaging sun’s rays away from your skin. While it may take a few uses to get used to this formulation the benefits of using a mineral base sunscreen will win you over with continued use!
