Coming Soon: Our New + Improved Sheer Mineral Sunscreen

Our Zinc Sheer Mineral SPF 30 is a fan favorite, holy grail formula. Many of our customers told us they’d searched for years, and ours was the first mineral sunscreen for face and body that didn’t leave a white cast, and that melted invisibly into every skin tone. We’ve been hearing from many customers wanting to know when it will be restocked, and we’re so excited to finally be able to share the answer.

Meet our new and improved Zinc Sheer Mineral SPF 30, coming this spring to and Sephora.

Why We Changed Our Beloved Mineral Sunscreen

Daily sun protection is non-negotiable when it comes to healthy skin.  While our previous formula was beloved by our customers, we heard that a small percentage of people were experiencing irritation. That was unacceptable to us.

While some of our products are tailored to certain skin types and concerns, sunscreen should be for everyone. We listened to our customers and took our formula back to the lab, where we identified the problem ingredient (ethyl ferulate)  and removed it, creating an invisible mineral sunscreen that won’t irritate sensitive or reactive skin.

Our skincare scientists didn’t stop there. They used the latest advances in biotechnology to go one step further and create an innovative reformulation that still delivers SPF 30 mineral protection with no white cast while also providing new and improved skincare benefits.

How We Improved Our Zinc Sheer Mineral SPF 30

Our new and improved Zinc Sheer Mineral SPF 30 delivers an innovative set of improved ingredients in the same lightweight, invisible formula. Our ingredients include:

  • 17.68% Zinc Oxide: That’s nearly 4% more skin-calming, sun-protective, all-mineral zinc oxide
  • Ectoin: A Water-binding protective molecule that  prevents inflammation and shields cells from external aggressors while quenching skin with a burst of hydration
  • Butterfly Ginger Plant: Helps protect the skin from pollution and blue light damage, leaving it visibly brighter and more even
  • Squalane: Helps to deliver a smooth, even application of sunscreen agents while providing lightweight moisture and driving skin-loving ingredients deep into the skin.

These new ingredient innovations mean that our reformulated Zinc Sheer Mineral SPF 30 is not only as hydrating and calming as the original, it’s also bursting with additional benefits including:

  • Strengthening the skin’s barrier against stress
  • Promoting a brighter and visibly more even skin tone
  • Longer-wearing
  • Doubles as a makeup primer
