What's your favorite zinc oxide sunscreen that is non-nano and fragrance free?
I use Badger but I'm sure there are other brands that are non-nano, fragrance free and don't contain chemical UV protection. What have you tried that you would recommend?
Actually, your Badger brand is better than I have been using, Alba Botanica. I bought it in a store with a limited selection and that seemed to be the best they had. Since then I've learned of Marie Veronique Organics, but it's $50. If money is no object.. http://www.facebook.com/MVOrganics
Make your own!! There are several homemade lotions available - just add zinc oxide powder to the mix and voila! You can also add zinc oxide to a lotion you already have at home.
I'd recommend Burt's Bees Baby Bees sunblock (stick). Because I need moisture, I use Eucerin's SPF 30 facial moisturizer/sunscreen with zinc oxide and octinoxate. A bottle of this cost about $7 or $8 bucks and lasts me about 6 weeks. I use it religiously on my face, neck, and chest. It contains at least 2 or 3 other sunscreens that you may wish to double check to see if they meet your standards.
I love Tizo3 but I only use it for my face. Kind of pricey though but it works for me. It's non-nano and fragrance free. Unfortunately, it's not available OTC and you could only buy it in some exclusive derma clinic and spa. For a more economical brand, try Neutrogena Ultra Sheer. My daughter uses this product and it suits her normal skin. Unfortunately for me, I have a very oily skin. So, I stick with Tizo3. Goodluck!

Its just like the topic says. I'm kind of a rookie in this whole Hub thing. So far, I like the Religion forum, but there's a lot of people you just wanna smack in the head. If you're non-religious, then what in the hell are you doing in a religion forum, for heaven's sake? Can someone pls answer...

Are the chemicals in sunblock bad for you? What's the alternative if they are?
