All good, indeed.

Q&A with All Good
Question: Break it down – what’s the difference between non-SPF, SPF 15 and SPF 20 lip balm?
Answer: Rule of thumb: SPF intensity should correspond to the amount of sun you’re exposed to. Headed to Arizona? Take SPF 20. Headed to the catacombs underneath Paris? Take non-SPF (and maybe an exorcist). Non-SPF balms are great for night-time and indoor use, SPF 15 balms are ideal for short sun exposure (short hikes, running in and out of tunnels), and SPF 20 balms are perfect for prolonged direct sun exposure. When in doubt, we go with SPF20. Better safe than sunburned.
Question: I got sunscreen on my clothes and now they’re stained. What do I do?
Answer: First, don’t worry – there’s no crying in baseball and suncare. Second, examine the stain — what color is it? If you’ve ever gotten that weird orange-colored stain on your clothes after a day at the beach, we assure you that zinc sunscreen was not the culprit. It’s more than likely that the sunscreen that dyed your clothes orange included the chemical Avobenzone – a “gateway” ingredient commonly used in chemical sunscreens that we deem a BIG NO-NO. If your stain is white from zinc sunscreen or a light brown color from tinted zinc sunscreen varieties, assemble your ingredients and get to work. You’ll need: a dull-edged knife, baking powder, white vinegar, hot water and a little laundry detergent. What to do: Scrape off the excess zinc with the knife. Sprinkle a bit of baking powder over the stain and let it absorb the grease for a couple minutes before brushing off the powder. Soak the stained article in hot water mixed with detergent and gently rub out the stain. Transfer the article to soak in white vinegar for 15 minutes, and then put it through the washer/dryer as you normally would. Sunscreen, pasta sauce, butter… same stain-removal technique. You’re welcome.
Question: Do your mineral sunscreens and Sunsticks work in water or if I sweat a lot?
Answer: If you’re in the water or just sweat excessively (no judgement – we feel you), you should re-apply sunscreen every 80 minutes (that’s for ALL sunscreens, BTW). For normal, every-day use, we suggest reapplying every 2 hours. For high-water situations, we’d suggest the Mineral Sunstick since it’s an oil and wax base and stays on better.
Question: What are the ingredients in your sunscreens?
Answer: We’ve got a few kinds, so let’s break them down. Our Reef Friendly sunscreens use an active ingredient of non-nanoparticle zinc oxide; zinc oxide works as a physical barrier (as opposed to a chemical absorber) between your skin and the sun to protect you from UVA/UVB rays. We also add other safe, organic ingredients like buriti oil, aloe, and calendula to our sunscreen formulas to help the zinc apply smoothly to your skin. Our Kid’s Sunscreens have added chamomile for sensitive skin. To see a full list of ingredients, check out the product page of the sunscreen you’re interested in on our website. And of course, all of our sunscreens are Reef Friendly, which makes them human-friendly too.
Question: I’ve tried a lot of zinc sunscreens and some are pastier than others, does this matter?
Answer: Assuming they are both non-nano and have a similar SPF, then no – they’re exactly the same. We tested our various non-nano zinc sunscreen lotions in our fancy UV lab, and found that the visibility of the white zinc oxide (even after it was rubbed in) is not an indicator of how effective the product is. What it DOES indicate is how well the lotion was formulated to blend in with skin and disperse zinc oxide particles evenly.
