I apply it several times a day when I'm outside. Aside forom the active sunlock ingredients it does contain some moisturizing additives but nothing I can find that would be comedogenic. It does contain Aloe, Dimethicone ( a silicone oil ) no lanolin or any waxes, animal or vegetable oils, so i think it's pretty safe. i like it and it's a very good buy !

JC--as for the allergic question.. if you are allergic to something, you'll feel the effects pretty quick and it will effect your whole body. After finding out that a face mask broke me out, i tried it as a foot mask (yes...i put it on my feet..it was expensive stuff!) and I could feel it in my whole body. It basically felt like my face was getting oily and tingly and ready to break out. So, basically, if you get any reaction in any way from trying a product on your arm or anywhere, then you know you're allergic to it. Did that make sense?

Ya...thanks W-a-E... I'm also concerned about the comedogenicity factor of the product. As it says on dermadoctor.com, it says that, just because the product contains a comedogenic product (in this case lanolin) it doesn't neccessarily mean that it's going to break you out. It depends on the percentage / amount that exists in the product.

So it's almost hit-and-miss. It will be difficult to ascertain whether this product will be comedogenic to me because the causality of it can take days, or even weeks! <_<

P.S. I also read somewhere that...most companies list the product ingredients starting from most to least in terms of %. Is that true?

Aiya...so lanolin is the 9th ingredient down from the top. What in blazes does that mean?? :unsure: :think:

Plus, I emailed the company with some questions regarding this, so knowing the reputation of this company, I should be expecting a response from them in oh...about 6-8 years. user posted image

I wouldn't worry about the lanolin, if you've never had an allergic reaction to wool ( lanolin is made from sheep ) you probably won't have any. If it's 9th on list, really don't worry because ther's very little in it.

I tried it today! Went to a dog park, and figured that I would need it.

It went on ok, and made my hands pretty greasy (even though it claimed to be "non-greasy"). It feels ok on the skin, and no allergic reaction to it. Whether it is comedogenic to me...who knows? Only time will tell.

user posted image Captain's log supplemental. The crew of the enterprise was nearing the M-Class planet beta scramlon, and due to the proximity of the sun, I ordered the crew to apply Derma Soleil sunscreen for the tough roads ahead.

These are the voyages... user posted image

I was thinking more Captain Kirk, Jc. I think jean-Luc is a little too sophisticated!!! wink.gif

I think we could do a whole star trek episode on this thread:

Captain Jc's universal translator was thrown into dissary whilst perusing the rear of a strange, shiny object known as the "Derma Solleil". A strange, white liquid appeared to be oozing from an orifice on the object, and after analysing the composition of the substance, the captain was concerned as to the presence of mysterious composites known cyrptically as 'lanolin' and 'stearic acid'.
The ship - U.S.S Acne-org-'s central computer identified the 'Derma Solleil' to be a benevolent artificial substance, composed of substances that may be toxic if brought into prolonged contact with humanoid pores.
Captain JC decided to test the liquid to investigate whether its composition was harmless, or whether it was, as he suspected, comedogenic.
Following a short investigation, the captain evaluated the liquid as relatively inocuous, although he retains the suspicion that the substance 'derma solleil', from which the liquid appeared to be issuing, may change its intentions as it becomes more exposed to humanoids lifeforms.


The ships computer logs on 'Derma Solleil' now reads as follows:
May be hazardous to humanoids due to the presence of unidenfied substances in its chemical composition, chiefly, lanolin. (which has been found in the veins of Borg organisms)
May be beneficial in warding off the solar rays that can damage a humanoid exposed to the damaging chemical 'accutane'.
May be beneficial to those who have come into comtact with lactic or glycolic acid-based chemicals.
initially, seems benevolent, but its development will be monitored. As we learn more about this substance, we may discover that it is damaging to humanoids prone to the disease, acne vulgaris.

For me, I would be most worried about the large amount of olive and soybean oil in it. Olive oil is a fairly heavy oil, that a lot of acne prone skin might have problems with. The jojoba and sweet almond oils should be fine. Lanolin should be ok if you're not sensitive to it. The shea butter might be too heavy for some acne prone skin.

I just came across this stuff, and was debating whether to try it (since it's cheaper than my current stuff).

I thought that olive oil would be a great moisturizer for the skin. I'm just glad I have this physical sunblock available in my health food store!
