Key Ingredients

Active ingredient: Zinc oxide 24.5% (USP, non-nano, non-coated).

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.

Not bad

Perfect Sunscreen

I use this daily on my face and it’s the only sunscreen that has not made me break out. The tint on it is also just right. My go to from now on.

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.
