How to use it:
-Since Suntegrity is a mineral sunscreen, you will need to use about 1/3 less product than if you were using a chemical sunscreen.
-Apply 2-3 teaspoons of sunscreen to cover your entire body. Because mineral sunscreen is thicker than chemical sunscreen, we recommend dotting it all over each area and then rubbing it in thoroughly.
-The product starts out white so you won’t miss a spot, but it will quickly absorb into the skin and the white will disappear.
-Be sure to reapply at least every 2 hours.
Proven! Our team of chemistry whizzes has analyzed this product’s label claims, and the ingredients that deliver them. Here’s the science behind why it works.
The Claim: Combats Free Radical Damage
Ingredient: Pomegranate Seed Oil - Extracts from this anti-oxidant rich tart fruit have been shown to help protect from cellular damage caused by exposure to UV radiation and inhibit lipid breakdown in the cell membrane. Read study.
Ingredient: Green Tea - Who knew that the next best thing to drinking this anti-oxidant-rich tea is to slather it on your face? It’s been proven that topical use of green tea extracts decreases free-radical damage induced by UV rays—a nasty process that breaks down collagen and elastin (your skin's support structure) and causes pre-mature aging.

The Claim: Reinforces Lipid Barrier
Ingredient: Aloe - Aside from being a soothing ointment for nasty sunburns, aloe extracts also help retain the water in your skin and reinforce the lipid barrier. Read study.
Ingredient: Jojoba Oil - Pronounced ho-ho-ba, this natural plant-based oil helps other oils penetrate better since its waxy consistency is similar to our skin’s natural sebum. Read study.
Ingredient: Sunflower Seed Oil - Jam-packed with linoleic acid, sunflower seed oil has been found to quickly reinstate the skin's barrier function, keeping moisture in. Read study.
