The sun is your friend but cover clothing, a nice hat and reapplying protection throughout the day are wise things to include on any outdoor adventure.
All the ingredients have their own natural sun screening properties but it's the non-nano zinc oxide that takes it to the next level. Non-nano means the particles are large enough that they do not penetrate the skin surface. This maximizes the sun blocking factor and you won't have any zinc oxide inside your body at the end of the day.
I had this formula officially tested for an SPF rating and water resistance a few years ago. This was before I learned that an SPF labelled product can only be sold if it was manufactured in a certified drug manufacturing facility. It's a shame to hold back a great sunscreen so I am making it available without listing the SPF.
For my 2 hour or less bike rides, I only apply before I go. For longer rides, I apply before and then reapply a thin layer while I snack at approximately 2 hour intervals. It will add a whitish tone to your skin which doesn't bother me but hey, I am a pale person. My skin loves all the added moisturizing and my tattoo is staying fun and colorful.
