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.

Still leaves a white residue on skin
I bought this product because it would be the first natural sunscreen to NOT leave a white residue on the skin. When I received it and applied it the first time, my skin was pastry white and no different than any other sunscreen. It might last longer in water, which I will utilize when swimming alone.
My guess is you are using too much product if it is still white on your skin. Trying using a bit less. In addition, try applying moisturizer on your skin before as like attracts like, so dry skin makes it even harder to rub in.
Doesn’t stay in during run
Hi. I had high hopes based on the description and price but it doesn’t stay on during my runs. Maybe you intend it to be only for swimming? Not sure but I’m very disappointed. Great idea and your marine-loving hearts are in right place but it’s not for sweaty runners. Best of luck.
We do have many runners and triathletes that love our sunscreen. My guess is you are not using the product correctly. Try moisturizing your skin first. Second, apply the sunscreen so that it rubs in clear. If it is not rubbing in clear, you are using too much. Wait 15-20 minutes before going outside or getting wet from sweat or water. This should do the trick.

Best sunscreen for Malasma
This sunscreen is awesome ! Not only is it environmentally safe but it protects your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. A little goes along way and when I’m biking it stays put ! So happy with this purchase!
