Sunscreens in general, as well as the specific ingredients used in the production of them, have been the subject of a lot of discussion and controversy over the last decade. While it’s generally agreed upon that chemical sunscreens have short-term as well as long-term health risks, more companies are utilizing mineral ingredients in their sunscreen formulations.
While most sunscreens claim to use either mineral barriers or chemical barriers in their formulations, seeing the words “Mineral Ingredients” on a label is not an automatic indicator of its efficacy or safety. Even sunscreens that boast their use of “Natural Mineral Ingredients” on their label will more often than not use harmful chemicals in conjunction with those minerals in the interest of either boosting their SPF or lengthening the formulations shelf life.
When selecting a sunscreen that’s right for you and your family, it’s important to consider the following:
-Typically, sunscreens on the market currently use 1 method of filtration of UV rays: Chemical and Mineral. They are vastly different from one another, and generally, mineral sunscreens are considered the safer option.
-More than half of the commercial sunscreens that are allowed to be on shelves here in the US would never make it to market in most European countries due to the more stringent standards overseas regarding UV protection.
-As indicated by the recent Environmental Working Group (EWG) study, 72% of sunscreens tested contained either inadequate or falsely advertised) sun protection or contained ingredients considered harmful by the FDA. ( https://www.ewg.org/sunscreen )
-16% of sunscreens advertised as “Sport” sunscreens contained Retinyl Palmitate, which is a Vitamin A derivative linked to speeding up the growth of cancerous cells by 21%. The inclusion of this ingredient allows companies to put the words “Anti-Aging” on their labels, but the minuscule anti-aging properties of a Vitamin A derivative does not counteract it being a cancer-causing agent.
-65% of non-mineral sunscreens contain oxybenzone, which is especially concerning, as it is an “endocrine disruptor” meaning it leads to the reduction of sperm count in men and endometriosis in women.
-While convenient, spray sunscreens should generally be avoided, as most ingredients used in sunscreens (even mineral sunscreens) are harmful when inhaled. However, mineral sunscreens in lotion form do not pose this risk of airborne mineral inhalation. Mineral sunscreens that do not use micronized or non-nano minerals also do not pose the same risk of unintended absorption. If using a mineral sunscreen, micronized or nano zinc oxide/titanium dioxide should not be used, as those smaller particles can be absorbed into the skin and have been shown to cause damage to the liver, spleen, stomach, and pancreas.
While it’s safe to assume that mineral sunscreens are generally a safer bet than chemical filters, it is not safe to assume that all mineral sunscreens are created equal. Titanium Dioxide is a commonly used ingredient in mineral sunscreens and while it protects the user from UVB rays, it doesn’t come close to providing the UVA protection that zinc oxide is able to provide. Non-Nano-Zinc Oxide is widely considered the most effective and safest active sunscreen ingredient when it comes to mineral sunscreen, as it is broad spectrum (meaning it protects from UVA, UVB, and UVC rays.)
As part of our commitment to provide our customers with the highest quality ingredients, we have decided to utilize non-micronized/non-nano Zinc Oxide as our primary active ingredient in our SHIELD sunscreen.
Jade Bloom All Natural Sunscreen Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Zinc Oxide, Myrrh, Lavender & Eucalyptus Essential Oils
The Coconut and Jojoba oils in our subscreen contribute to the formula’s moisturizing benefits and it’s emollient nature.
We use non-micronized/non-nano Zinc Oxide, as it is the safest broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen ingredient on the market. Our use of non-micronized/non-nano Zinc Oxide ensures that the particles are not too small. This prevents the Zinc Oxide from ever absorbing completely into the skin, which can pose health risks.
So many sunscreens on the market artificially fragrance their formulas with “beachy” scents like bananas or coconuts. As our customers have come to expect, harmful artificial fragrances are not something we’d ever incorporate into our products. For this reason, we scent our sunscreen naturally with Myrrh, Lavender, and Eucalyptus
This was a thick white paste on you that you can’t rub in evenly and it makes you look like a ghost. We went for a motorcycle ride and I ended up burned. Then when we got home I couldn’t get the white film to come off no matter what I tried washing with. Ended up scraping it off with my fingernails. All the scrubbing to try to get it off left my skin irritated.
COMPANY RESPONSE - November 15, 2018 10:21 AM - Hello Trish, we're sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with Shield but happy that you were able to return it for a refund. We can see that you made your purchase 13 months ago and thought you would be pleased to know that this product has since been reformulated and we provide an optional tinted version that blends into your skin.
I bought the tinted version and was very satisfied.... I have olive colored skin. it did make my skin slightly lighter than normal... but really was not noticeable. This stuff really works and does not allow you to burn. It also makes your skin soft. I highly recommend!
As a cancer survivor, this is the only sunscreen I'll ever use. All natural with zinc.
I decided to try the Jade Bloom sun screen. I ordered both the "white" and "tinted mica" formulations. I'm sad to say that I literally hate this sunscreen.
I used the products on myself and my 5 kids. The white formulations leaves a yucky looking white residue over the skin, especially on someone who is not outright pale. The tinted mica version is almost like makeup, it was so "makeup like" in consistency and color that I could have used 2 coats of this and covered a tattoo (not at all what I was going for). It also leaves a fair skinned person looking PINK, nothing in close to "bronze" or "tan".
Both formulations are extremely heavy feeling, literally like a makeup foundation. Both formulations will literally change the color of your skin (either pastey white or Patrick Star pink) in a very unflattering manner.
This is the only product ever in my entire time ordering from Jade Bloom I contacted them about returning cause its that bad :(
Smell wise, yes its fabulous. That's about the only good comment I have for this product.
The tinted version is amazing! It’s all natural still but looks normal on your skin!! Amazing! Effective and divine-smelling with beneficial skin ingredients just like the original. A !!!!! Thank you Jade Bloom!!!
Smells great. I have Lupus and have to wear sunscreen with zinc all day everyday even in the winter and indoors. I thought it was just as good as the one I've been using from Dermatologist. It blends in great and I have no residue. I didn't use the tint in mine. Need to use very little.
I love this sunscreen. I got it in a combo package with bug spray which is gone already. I only wished I had gotten non tinted. I’m naturally olive toned and the sunscreen tint is pink. Too pink and doesn’t blend in otherwise it’s smell is amazing. And works great stays on the skin even in the water.
love this product
I am new to Jade Bloom products but trying to do more natural things for my kids sake cause of all the chemicals in products these days. I really like the sunscreen. It did the job and smelled good also.
It does leave a bit of a white residue but it really isn't all that notice if you're as pale as I am :) It works well and smells Really good too!
This is a wonderful alternative to commercial sun products! I love it.
Used this past weekend on grandkids and it worked great.
This is my favorite sunscreen. It doesn’t burn my eyes or irritate my skin. It doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients. The ingredients are actually good for your skin! It’s almost like getting a treatment each time you apply it. Smells divine. I’m trying the tinted version next for my legs!
I was surprised at how light the tint is to my skin. Definitely had to use it in moderation.... I will be getting the white next time but I am still happy with this product
I have ALWAYS had trouble wearing traditional sunscreens (and I’ve tried a ton) because I sweat and my eyes get irritated. This doesn’t irritate my eyes. Also, it has a cool texture. It’s basically a liquid. It smells Devine. I actually enjoy applying this to my face because of all the good skin ingredients and the smell. As far as effectiveness, check. It works. Great, safe sunscreen.
I can't believe how well this works. I got it just before I went on a island vacation. I used the tinted on my face. Can't say enough good things about it. Except don't put it in your carryon luggage.
TSA takes it.
I purchased the Shield and am so excited to try it out ! I have fair skin and work outside in my yard a lot during the summer. It has a nice feel to it, not heavy like store bought sun screen
Nice smell and thick white liquid that needs to be rubbed in but it works well.
Don't like how it turns my skin white so I will return it and try the tinted.
A little goes a long way. Carried to Cancun this past October. No burns, but thankful I had it sealed in a plastic bag coming home. Leaked horribly. Wish it was in a different container, or had a screw on top to come with the pump
I would like this product much better if it didn't leave a white film which never absorbs into the skin. I felt like a ghost at the pool so the second try I diluted it with coconut oil - not sure if it was a good idea, but I wasn't ghost white
I'm excited about this plant based sunscreen. Just beware that a little goes a long way. Don't overdo it and end up wasting your product!
PERFECT FOR FLORIDA WEATHER
Purchased this for my niece and nephews who have very sensitive skin and our quite finicky on what they will allow on their skin, to boot! My sister used it and we were both surprised that there was no screaming and squirming. The test came after everyone was out under the sun for a day's worth of games and cheer: no burnt noses, not red cheeks, and no "ouchy" spots. Thank you, Jade Bloom! Will be keeping this on hand for my sister's rascals!!
I'm sure this is a great sunscreen but it is very thick and white. Wanted it for my face but it feels too heavy and makes me look like a geisha girl!
We used this at the beach and had no sunburns on fair skins. A little goes a long way. It is nice to have natural ingredients in a sunscreen.
I am an avid tennis player and have a hard time finding sunscreen that doesn't drip and burn my eyes... until now! I love this product! I am able to protect my skin and use a chemical free product. It smells great too! I have been telling all of my friends and family about this sunscreen!
I love the smell! So much better than all the other sunscreens out there. Not sure yet of its sun blocking abilities but I will add to this once it is used. It has been raining here so no way to use it yet :( but it feels decent when I apply it, though it does seem like it takes a lot to wash off, but in a way that's good because it means it'll stay put when swimming!
I've used this product twice now and I really don't like this one, but I really do like Jade Bloom products. It does work however it leaves your skin feeling dry and weird feeling- I couldn't wait to wash it off both times. I ordered Jade Bloom's carrot seed oil and am hoping to use this with a carrier oil instead for a sunscreen.
This product definitely does it's job. It's gentle enough for the grandbabies
My family has been using it with great results. Most have commented about it leaving your skin white, yes it does a little, but it's worth the protection.
I put this product to the test for two weeks at the beach. Yes, it leaves a white film, but it isn't too bad. I assume it is the active ingredient doing its job. For the first time in 10 years, I have been able to enjoy the sun without getting raised, red whelps on my arms and chest. I'm sold on Shield. Thank you, Jade Bloom, for an awesome product.
I used the new sunscreen on my face and the tops of my hands, everything else was covered. I mowed my yard, which is an acre plus and then did more outside lawn work too! It's hot and humid here in north Texas. The new sunscreen worked great! It didn't wear off and smells good too! Thank you Jade Bloom for another great product!
We got this sunscreen mainly for our 18 month old. We've used it multiple times and it's done it job, sometimes he would fall asleep after a day in the sun and I'd freak out with the sunscreen just sitting on his skin due to all the chemicals but I feel way more at ease using jade blooms. We live in Florida so the sun is pretty harsh most of the time. We will be buying again!! I h
I put this on before I mowed the lawn. I applied it once in the morning. I mowed for about 6 hours. I only burned where I could not reach on my back, I really like this product.
I really like this sunscreen. It seems to work very well and has a pleasant odor. The only reason I only gave 4 stars was because it does not rub in to your skin. It leaves a layer of white wherever you apply it. I will use this sunscreen over anything I can buy in a store because it's all natural.
I will try this product again but wasn't impressed the first attempt. I love that it is natural. The smell is pleasant. I didn't even mind that it doesn't rub in easily. My kids we're outside swimming for 1hr and 45 minutes and they became pink with minor sunburn. I'll try again and use more and reapply after 1hr and see if I get better results.
The sunscreen smells great but when you apply it leaves your skin white no matter how much you rub it in. Regardless, I will still use this instead of the garbage sold in stores that contains all of the chemicals.
I normally burn through almost anything. I tried Jade Bloom sunscreen and didn't even get pink. I was astonished. Even getting wet kayaking. I applied every 4 hours. A must have for your outdoor activities. I won't be without it.
I really wanted to like this sunscreen but no matter how much I try to rub it in, my skin stays white. It smells good though. Maybe Jade Bloom can improve it somehow.
As some other reviewers stated it leaves a thin layer of white paste on your skin that you can't rub in, I did try! I applied it to my arms, legs and face before heading out for a walk and I like the smell but it seemed difficult to rub in... needs to be a little creamier... and didn't think anything more till on our walk I happened to look at my arms and they looked pastie white! I tried to rub it in but was not successful.
So I love all jade bloom products , and I had such high hopes for this but I'm kind of disappointed. It smells great and I love that it's chemical free but the white paste it leaves behind is pretty annoying . It leaves my kids skin soooo white , not even able to rub it in. If you don't mind that you will like it
This is exactly what I have been looking for in a sunscreen. I have Lupus and dobits very important that I "shield" myself from the sun. I have tried SO many different brands of sunscreen, both traditional (chemical) and natural (physical barrier) and I have not found one I like.
It leaves a heavy white layer on you..
I bought this sunscreen for my grandchildren. I will make sure to keep this on hand.
I have only used it a couple times so far, but I've only had good results. I love the consistency because it goes far. It is runny and I thought that'd be a problem, but it's actually helpful. It takes a bit of rubbing to get it all absorbed on the face, but not too much. I went swimming and only applied it to my face, upper back, and shoulders. When I was done I was slightly burned on my arms but no burn at all on my shoulders or anywhere else I applied the sunscreen. I love the dispenser and I love the product! Another hit. :)
It comes out fast so easy on the pump bottle. Goes on thick so you don't need a lot. Smells great and gives good good protection from the sun.
Love this sunscreen. Purchased very expensive brand at beginning of summer but much prefer Jade Bloom brand.
love the smell of this sunscreen. It works great and feels good on the skin, although its tricky to get all of it to absorbed without looking white. I would buy it again anyways, because the fragrance of the essentials oils are wonderful.
This is the best natural sunscreen I have ever used. It has simple, yet brilliant ingredients. Great for your skin and protects it from the sun with a SPF of 30. Feels amazing and luxurious going on and a little goes along way. I love the simple pump bottle as well. Floored.
A little goes a long way. It seems liquidity at first, but goes on rich, silky and feels very moisturizing. The scent is subtle and not overpowering. This is a much healthier choice for myself and my family and I'm happy to have found it!
