How to use

Apply to any body part that's exposed to the sun, rubbing it in to help the sunscreen blend in with your skin tone. The more you apply, the more protection you’ll have.

Unlike conventional, synthetic, chemical-based sunscreens, mineral sunscreens start working the second that you apply them to your skin, so you don't have to wait before enjoying the outdoors.

Always rely on common sense when in the sun, and use clothing and hats as your primary form of solar protection. Respect your personal exposure limits.

Easy to use

I’ve used Activist products for a few years now, so I thought I’d give this sunscreen stick a try. Very easy to use for us lazy ones who don’t take time to apply sunscreen. The tint blended well with my skin tone and had the added benefit of a bit of foundation, also a time saver. I also purchased the cream sunscreen.

Best Stick Sunscreen - EVER

I've tried so many "natural" tinted sunscreens, only to be disappointed - until now! Use it as a light foundation, blending in after applying face oil and it works really well for me in SC where it's sunny more often than not! Love the composability of the tube too!

Great everyday sunscreen

This is my daily go-to for facial sunscreen. Excellent and plastic free!

Love it so much!

I bought this for my trip to Hawaii because I wanted something with some coverage that was also reef safe! This was so perfect, it was easy to apply and protected my very well. The coverage can be built on if you’re looking to cover dark spots or anything. I reapplied 3-5 times a day and didn’t get sunburnt. It replaced my foundation when I got back from my trip. Great purchase and would very much recommend!

I love it

I surf and I love how I can use it for every day and in the ocean. I rub it in for everyday and on the ocean I just cake it on. Yeah it’s a little pricey but if it’s better for me and the environment I’m down to spend a little more.
