Apply generously and evenly to your face and body. If a white residue persists after 5 minutes then you most likely have used too much product or need to continue to rub in the sunscreen. To assist the sunscreen we recommend moisturizing your skin before using.
Apply the equivalent of a shot glass (2-3 tablespoons) of sunscreen to the exposed areas of the face and body. For your face, a nickel-sized dollop should be sufficient.
If you use the sunscreen as part of your daily skincare routine, apply before makeup and 15 minutes before sun exposure. Although we are tested to 4 hour water resistance, we recommend that you re-apply at least every 2 hours.

Minimal white cast, rubs in very well, works very well. Comes in aluminum tube so minimizes the use of plastic (which I LOVE) and came in a cardboard (compostable) box! It’s reef safe! It’s all the things I want out of sunscreen, so 10/10 would recommend!
Laura Naber (Big Pine Key, US)
The best part is that you only have to reapply it every 3-4 hours! We live in the Florida Keys and we're in the sun daily and sometimes all day long snorkeling at reefs and at sandbars in the middle of the ocean. So it's nice to have a clean ingredient sunscreen that's also reef & environmentally conscious that you don't have to stop the fun for every 1.5 hours. A little goes a long way which is really nice! It rubs in like a typical mineral sunscreen- meaning the higher the SPF the more you need to work it into the skin which isn't a big deal since you don't have to do it every hour. No more fighting with my 8 year old to constantly put on sunscreen! We're big fans! Thanks for making a great product!
PS- can you guys please make an SPF15 sunscreen for everyday use? That would be awesome!

This sunscreen has a learning curve, but it's well worth it. It smells nice, isn't greasy, and provided you don't use too much (which is easy to do) doesn't leave a white cast. It's much thicker than most sunscreens, so it takes a bit of effort to rub in, but I have yet to be burned through this.

Been using it for 1yr. Stays on super long and non slip for surfing.
