climbOn SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen

The FDA approved sunscreen agent in this product is the non-nano zinc oxide. However, every ingredient used in this formulation is considered a sunscreen. One ingredient, Red Raspberry Seed oil (Rubus idaeus) is known to contain a high level of EFA's (essential fatty acids) which research shows to relate to reduction of the effects of oxidative stress in the body. It also exhibits anti-inflammatory properties. It may also act as a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB shield. Of course, this statement has not been approved by the FDA.

We pride ourselves in making the safest and most effective sunscreens available and we care deeply for you, our customer, and for your wellbeing. We hope that our answers below might help you to understand how you might have been sunburned while using our product. 
Applying mineral sunscreens can be challenging, and incorrect application can result in less protection.  Some top reasons why you may have gotten burned while using climbOn SPF Sunscreen.

  • You did not apply enough. People often apply far too little of mineral sunscreen. Applying half the amount of sunscreen you should use provides only the square root of the SPF, so a half application of SPF 30 only gives you an SPF 5.5. 
  • Some of your sunscreen washed off in the water or by sweating, or it was rubbed off on clothes or a towel. Mineral sunscreens sit on top of the skin. They are a physical protector. They and can be rubbed off. The FDA, and all sunscreen manufacturers recommend reapplication every two hours, and after swimming, sweating, or towel drying.
  • Some medications make you more sensitive to the sun. Please read more about any medications you may be taking and please take any ‘avoid the sun’ warnings seriously.
  • Your tube of sunscreen has compromised stability due to poor storage or is expired.

Let’s talk about Red Raspberry Seed oil (Rubus idaeus).  It contains a high level of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) which research shows to be a strong antioxidant for the skin. Recent skin cancer research indicates that American’s have a wildly imbalanced fatty acid ratio in their diet, and this imbalance creates a photo-toxic environment on the skin. Which means that when you go out in the sun the rate of cell damage increases. It is also very important to eat foods and take supplements rich in omega 3’s.  Red Raspberry Seed oil has also been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. That said, the above statement has not been approved by the FDA.
