Active Ingredients: Octinoxate 7.50%, Octisalate 4.00%, Zinc Oxide 1.70%, Avobenzone 1.00%.Other Ingredients: Aqua (Deionized Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe Vera Gel) Juice, Polysorbate-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Acrylates Copolymer, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Extract, Lecithin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin-E), Agaricus Bisporus (Mushroom) Betaglucans, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.Sprays are the most damaging type of any type of sunscreen due to their mix and where it may land on your face. Hardly any zinc in this formula, only 1.70% and more unneeded ingredients. Kiss My Face has the best soap but forget about the sunscreens, that is a whole world by itself. Kiss My face 40SPF has 12% zinc, a better formula but this spray can go along with all other sprays for their damaging qualities. Read the Ingredients and the shocking price of those ingredients which will be sprayed in the air and some probably will land on your eyes.I use many brands and I will not use any sunscreen in any form recommended by Consumer Report since those are all chemical sunscreens when infact there are few brands out there with good ingredients and great protection. Target, Hawaiian Tropic, Copper tone, Nutrogina, etc. may offer protection but offer many unwanted chemicals as well. Bottom line, what ingredients are you looking for and how well it protects you for what you pay per ounce. If chemicals are not disturbing to you, then roofing tar offers the best sunscreen on the market.Zinc Oxide is a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical one, blocks both UVA (320-400 nm) and UVB (280-320 nm) rays of ultraviolet light. Chemical sunscreens are less effective and carry unnecessary health risks. ZO is insoluble in water, used in many industries, in ointments, creams and lotions. Non-irritating, non-allergenic and non-comedogenic, used by athletes as a bandage to prevent soft tissue damage during workouts. ZO must be NON NANO / UNCOATED UPS -2 ZO which has a mean particle size greater than 30nm, when applied to the skin do not get absorbed into the body, do not enter the bloodstream, and are not a threat to human health.SPF is a measure of how much longer someone will be protected from UVB rays than someone wearing no cream. If the sun reddens unprotected skin in ten minutes, for example, a person wearing SPF15 can be exposed to the sun without reddening for 15 times longer – 150 minutes. While UVB rays are behind the redness of sunburn, UVA rays damage the skin’s DNA at a deeper layer. Both radiation types can cause skin cancer. The EU recommendation is for sunscreens to offer a UVA protection factor that is a third of their SPF.I make my own sunscreen as well as I purchase sunscreen for times when I do not have time to make any since I need to surf. For that reason, when I purchase a sunscreen mix, I need the same formula as I use when I make my own organic sunscreen mix since it only requires few ingredients but for more protection like my nose, I bump the zinc. Zinc is what you see surfers put on their nose for protection. The more zinc, the more protection but it means a mix that is more like a mud since zinc is a powder that I purchase and add to EVCO. Sunscreens are worse than processed foods (which I never consume) since there is no nutritional guide for sunscreens. For a small investment, sunscreens may offer me the possibility of avoiding sun burn, pain, cancer, medical bills, pain killers, etc. that come with exposure to the sun. For that reason, choosing a formula with the least amount of ingredients but high zinc oxide is the best solution. A good sunscreen formula should not have more than a handful ingredients, certified organic at least 95% and FREE OF; fragrances, biologically harmful chemicals like Avobenzone, Oxybenzone, or UV Chemical absorbers, paraben, phthalates, PABA and 1,4 dioxane, alcohol. What goes on skin is the same as being consumed through the skin. Chemicals, alcohol and fragrances are no protection for the skin.
Sprays on nicely & rubs into skin easily
You can control the size of the spray easily, and it rubs in quickly without leaving white pasty stuff everywhere, as some other sprays of this type can do. Seems to work!
The sunscreen is great, neutral smell, light and non-greasy but… the spray nozzle is totally faulty, mine stopped working on the first use. This is a HUGE problem that many have commented on. I don’t know why the nozzle wont work, it’s not clogged or physically broken, however it no longer sprays.. very very frustrating and I’m looking for a good alternative. Can’t recommend this sunscreen until they get the packaging fixed.
This was perfect. If your expecting to spray it and not rub it in, don’t. All it does is disperse it to make it easier to rub in. I love that it soaks in fast and doesn’t have a chemically smell. Definitely recommend it!
It isn’t super oily like other sun screens and sprays on well. It also, held it consistency after being left in my car in the middle of a Florida summer.
Great sunscreen- but the bottle broke within a week
The product itself is great, but the bottle is terrible. As mentioned in other reviews, the spray part breaks, and then you are unable to get the product out!
great coverage but stings like a bee!
The spray feature makes it so easy for me to use the lotion on my face/body. And its portioned so then i do not over use it either. Its long wearing but if gets into water, it WILL sting your eyes! badly! So be careful!
Smells good, cruelty free, and is easy to apply. The only good things about this product.First issue: spray nozzle broke on the second day of my vacation. This seems to be a common theme in amazon reviews, and I wish I saw said reviews before I bought this at my Whole Foods.Second issue: the lotion just did not work for me. I received an uneven tan and burn, despite applying the product evenly over my entire body and reapplying practically every hour the first two days. I’m no suntan lotion newbie; every other lotion I’ve used never caused this issue for me, and I’ve never experienced a sunburn as terrible as the one while using this product. For that reason, I say avoid.
Kiss My Face Sun Spray Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30, 14 Fluid Ounce
Good sunscreen. Didn’t clog my pores and did what it was intended to do. Lasts awhile and easy to pump. Decent smell with no irritating or breaking out. Happy with my purchase.
I love the company’s standards, but this bottle is difficult.
I love Kiss My Face’s commitment to cruelty-free, green cosmetics, but this spray bottle doesn’t work for this product. The lotion is a milky white and runny enough to make a mist, but after being tossed around at the beach and in the beach bag, the nozzle becomes difficult to twist to spray, and you end up getting a stream. The product itself works well. It is not a sport spray that is a continuous mist; it is a pump spray of a milky lotion.
