Why does Elisha LOVE suntegrity? Well apart from the founder, Tricia Trimble being a amazing badass female entrepreneur who has a heart of gold and a sense of humor to bat, this product is the most luxurious and sophisticated product with Zinc Oxide that Elisha has ever used! Where most Zinc based products are thicker and a more pasty texture, Tricia took the time to create an everyday product that is creamy, absorbs well and smells fantastic. This is MUST-HAVE product for anyone who uses SPF and has been searching for that perfect Zinc based product.

NOTE ABOUT THEIR ESSENTIAL OILS: Suntegrity scented sunscreens use a very low dilution of essentials oils (less than 1/2 a percent for scent purposes only) together with 20% zinc oxide as a sunscreen. Suntegrity has performed RIPT (Repeat Insult Patch Test) testing through an outside lab (BioScreen) using a 50 person panel showing no contact irritation or sensitization to our sunscreens. This test allows them to make the Non-Irritating, Allergy Tested and Clinically Tested claims.
Zinc oxide is naturally anti-inflammatory so you can definitely apply to inflamed skin to help soothe and comfort it. Being too that Zinc Oxide is a physical sunscreen, you can apply this immediately before going in the sun for maximum protection, whereas chemical sunscreens need to be applied at least 20-minutes before you are exposed.
