Badger SPF sunscreens are highly rated for safety and effectiveness by the Environmental Working Group in their Skin Deep Safe Cosmetics database.
Zinc Oxide, the active ingredient in the sunscreens is a physical block which reflects the sun's rays and provides excellent UVA and UVB protection. It allows skin to breathe when exercising, it doesn't drip & sting eyes, it starts working on application (no waiting) & it's environmentally friendly (packaged in #2 65% Post-Consumer Recycled Tubes) & safe for marine life and reefs.
Please note that since this is a natural, mineral-based SPF30 sunscreen, it does have a slight whitening effect.
In terms of effectiveness Badger Sunscreen came 2nd out of 900 creams tested for safety in the US (chemical & non chemical).

3 out of 5 people would recommend this product12/07/2016, By Stacey-LeeIve been using this product for the last 2 years and i love it! I use it for hiking and swimming alike. The main reason i love it is because it is a sun BLOCK (hence the thickness) as opposed to a sun SCREEN which is a chemical block and far worse for your skin and the environment it ends up in. Zinc is also a natural anti bacterial and great for your skin. By far my most favourite sunblock on the market.
I hope great stuff like this start being made in SA so we don have to have it imported :)08/01/2015, By LizelIt works extremely well, but unlike other sunscreens it doesn burn eyes and doesn dry out skin. A wonderful product.17/12/2014, By JenavickaI have sensitive skin and I can use sunblock with fragrances.
I was delighted to find this product but I am utterly disappointed.
First off the texture is thick and its difficult to rub in.
It leaves your skin white. This didn matter to me until
I got more sunburnt where I applied the sunblock than where I didn . I am responsible in the sun and I applied the sunblock numerous times and I did not swim. I cannot believe it did not work.
I thought I might have been the only consumer with this experience but I checked up on the reviews on amazon and there are others with a similar experience.
Please don buy this product its not worth the risk.
