Clear Oil Sunscreen Stick – Coral Reef-Safe

(Formula #101-86D)

Clear Oil Sunscreen Stick

Why we love it:

It’s coral-reef safe, it’s clear, resists melting and comes in an easy-to-tote stick for on-the-go protection

Trends it supports:

Formulation highlights:

A non-greasy, dry-oil, clear stick formulation that resists melting/softening.

This coral reef-safe wonderfully moisturizing yet light sunscreen comes in an easy-to-use stick format. This non-greasy “dry oil” formulation is loaded with Daikon Seed Extract (DSE) for a light, velvety skin feel. Meadowfoam XPR (XPR) adds richness and oxidative stability. And, when combined with amino acid-derived gelatinization agents, XPR and DSE form a clear, solid stick that resists melting/softening in warm temperatures.
