ZinClear SPF 30 Non-tinted (now called SheerZinc)
Size: 2 fl. oz
Who It's For
Great daily sunscreen (not for sports, water etc.) for those who want the extra zinc especially for melasma or other pigment problem. Works well for all but the darkest skin types - could be a little chalky here but you can put makeup over it.
Dr. Irwin's Product Review
Still one of my favorites. Note that this is now called SheerZinc. New name, but the same excellent product. No other sunscreen has 18% zinc and goes on this well that I’ve ever seen. This is the clear, non-tinted version which goes on fairly white but absorbs quite well after several minutes. Scroll down to see the tinted version which many like better.
Great for melasma and anyone with pigment problems due to the 18% zinc. This is a physical (mineral) sunscreen, meaning that it contains no sunscreen chemicals. Excellent also for sensitive skin. Expensive, but worth it for the extra protection.
How to Use
Apply sunblock in the morning and reapply every 2-3 hours if sweating or outdoors.
