Did You Know? UVA rays pass easily through the ozone layer and make up the majority of our sun exposure. These are the rays that cause skin ageing and wrinkling. UVB rays are the rays that cause sunburns; some of these rays are absorbed by the ozone layer, but enough pass through to pose a risk to your skin; and your health. Both rays are associated with increased risk of skin cancer.

23 out of 25 people would recommend this product07/09/2018, By ElizabethThis is the only CANSA approved mineral sunscreen I have been able to find and I am so pleased. It is thick, but is absorbed quickly. The grittiness of the zinc oxide takes some getting used to. It leaves a bit of a white residue if not rubbed in or if a thicker layer is applied. It protects well against the sun.18/07/2018, By LoveleenIt's a bit thick for my liking and I have to mix it with my light moisturiser well to get it on without leaving my skin looking coated.23/05/2018, By WendsMI found it very difficult in South Africa to get a reef safe sun screen. Being very fair skinned, burning easily and loving the outdoors I was a bit apprehensive trying a sun factor of only 30. On my recent trip to Egypt it worked fantastic, temps were up to 40 degrees, no burning and my skin felt great.
This is the only sunscreen I will now use.15/04/2018, By TashWorks well. Leaves a very slight purplish glow, as all zinc oxide products do. Smells alright.02/03/2018, By MajI love Oh-Lief, and the sunscreen does not disappoint.
I didn't not find it sticky.
It doesn't smell that nice though30/01/2018, By KarinWorst product ever (I posted a while back, but noticed it wasn't on-line - obviously only positive posts will appear!)26/01/2018, By LeeanneI have been using this sunblock for years and it is by far my favourite of all the sunblocks. Works very well and is super gentle on skin/eyes.11/01/2018, By BiancaThis was the only sunblock that didn't burn my babies' eyes. It is easier to spread when warmed a little in hands. Was on vacation the whole December and their faces didn't burn once.09/01/2018, By PetroI wish this product was a little gentlier on the pocket:-) Otherwise is it great - my little girl has never had a sunburn, or cried when the product got into her eyes. Will definitely recommend this to any parent!05/01/2018, By SarahBy far the best sunblock that can be used by the whole family. Would however like an option to buy larger volume.05/01/2018, By SarahBy far the best sunblock that can be used by the whole family. Would however like an option to buy larger volume.28/11/2017, By Mary LynneUse it on the whole family. Can be quite oily but works well10/11/2017, By LollyGreat!06/11/2017, By JackieGreat product and a good price for a natural sunscreen. Nice to know you can smother your skin to protect against the sun without any horrible toxins penetrating.06/10/2017, By Tracey JoyLeave a bit of a layer on the skin but keeps the rays at bay27/09/2017, By MareliThis is a very effective sunscreen, although I find it very greasy.27/02/2017, By DianaNot sure if I got a bad batch but did not work for me and got really burnt twice.05/11/2016, By TaniaThis works well, it did its job. It does leave a bit of a white film, but nothing serious. It doesn smell great unfortunately, but is effective against the sun.17/08/2016, By LuisaThis must be the most effective sunscreen I have tried and its fully natural, I am impressed! My Swedish-looking 18 month old, white-haired, blue-eyed with the palest skin, just survived a long summer on the beach and did not have once the slightest sign of red skin. Really great product!01/02/2016, By LeighI really like this sunscreen, even though it is a bit greasy. It works well and goes on easily03/12/2015, By MarietteThe sunscreen is quite thick and the tube burst open on first use, so now I cant carry it around.
It does absorb quite quickly though and is very effective.11/11/2015, By IngridLOVE the Oh Lief sunscreen products!04/11/2015, By ColleenLove this product. Bit thicker than the other suncreams I am used to, but I love it. Doesn leave a greasy feel and spreads easily.02/10/2015, By KarienAlthough I found this product to be effective in providing sun protection, it is really greasy. I used it on my kids (1 and 3) at the beach, and its a sand magnet - they were covered in sand from top to toe in no time and the sand/sun cream mixture just wouldn wipe off!02/10/2015, By AdeleEasy to apply, no white residue, moisturizing and effective protection. Love this sunscreen!
