What about Nanoparticles?

Please note that this natural sunscreen does not claim for the zinc to be "nanoparticle free".  We stock this product because it does not contain harmful synthetic chemical ingredients.  There is debate as to whether nanoparticles are harmful, and uncertainty about what constitutes a "nanoparticle" (particularly because there is no regulatory definition of the claim).  We are following the assessment of two independent organisations.  We present the information so that you can make an informed choice on which you prefer to avoid.  You may be able to find chemical based sunscreen that is nanoparticle free.

Environmental Working Group (EWG) states:  "Zinc oxide is EWG’s first choice for sun protection. It is stable in sunlight and can provide greater protection from UVA rays than titanium oxide or any other sunscreen chemical approved in the U.S. (Schlossman 2005). Years ago, zinc oxide sunscreens, often seen on lifeguards’ noses, were famously white and chalky. Today, sunscreen makers use zinc oxide nanoparticles to formulate lotions with less white tint.

A number of companies sell products advertised as “non-nano” titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These claims are generally misleading. While particle sizes vary among manufacturers, nearly all would be considered nanomaterials under a broad definition of the term, including the definition proposed in 2011 by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA 2011b).

The use of nanoparticles in cosmetics poses a regulatory challenge because the properties of nanoparticles may vary tremendously, depending on their size, shape, surface area and coatings. We don’t know everything we would like to know about their performance because manufacturers are not required to disclose the qualities of the particles used in their sunscreens.

More research and more specific FDA guidelines are essential to reduce the risk and maximize the sun protection of mineral sunscreens. Yet even with the existing uncertainties, we believe that zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are among the best choices on the American market.

See the article here http://www.ewg.org/2015sunscreen/report/nanoparticles-in-sunscreen/

Choice Australia states:  The weight of evidence is clear. There's more risk from not using sunscreen than there is from using it, whether or not it contains nanoparticles. Not using sunscreen can increase your risk of skin cancer, while using it may result in nanoparticles sitting on the surface of your skin (helping to protect you from UV radiation), but they aren't absorbed into your body. Nevertheless, consumers should still be able to choose nano-free sunscreens if they want, and we want products containing nanoparticles to be labelled accordingly.

Thick and Greasy but Natural

Wore this while doing gardening and ended up with everything stuck all over me... It's definitely more for swimming and dirt-free environments. Very thick, greasy consistency. Not nice to wear when hot and bothered.

Works well, but thick

Very thick lotion and can be hard to squeeze out towards the end of the product, but does a good job at protecting the skin

Texture not to my liking

Liked the ingredients but found texture bit to thick and greasy.

Good protection

I'm a fan of all the Wotnot range. It's thicker to spread than your regular commercial sunscreens, but honestly this doesn't bother me. I wouldn't call it difficult to rub in. Takes a bit longer to soak in. But worth it to not be using a chemical laden product.

Safe but oily

We love that this sunscreen is safe for our babes but we found it quite thick and so if the kids go in the sandpit or on the beach the sand flies to their skin. In saying that it works and it’s safe so I would still recommend it :)
