Most non-comedogenic sunblocks smell terrible. Many have

comedogenic ingredients and I'd gather - possibly poor

testing to determine that they are not comedogenic.

The best I've found by far is Ocean Potion SPF 50.

Product Page

It smells so good you want to eat it, but please don't.

It doesn't list ingredients on the bottle or website, so I

emailed them, it took a while but they responded and

I couldn't believe it, the best set of ingredients I have

ever seen in a sunblock, and I'm obsessed with what

is comedogenic and what is not. This was a miracle.

They also indicated many dermotologists recommend it

and that their research also shows it's non-comedogenic.

There is a link on that page as to where to buy it. It's hard

to find, but worth the search. If you can't find it locally with

their links, you can order it directly from that company...

I've used it for over a decade, it's never made my super oily,

and easily clogged skin break out. I can't recommend it more.

Even brands in dermatologists offices were not as comedogenic

ingredient free, and they always smelled so bloody awful as well!

can u list the ingredients for us please?

What an irony seeing this post after I just bought this stuff last week for the first time, and for the silliest of reasons - it was in a small, compact jar rather than a big, bulky tube, so it would be easier to carry in my small waist pouch thingie that I carry in lieu of a purse. Plus it was cheap (less than $2). I can't remember now whether I got it at the Publix here in Orlando or at the Super Wal-Mart, but it had to be one or the other.

Here's the ingredients for the SP 45 Clear Zinc 1oz jar:

Active Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%), Octocrylen (7%), Octisalate (5%), Oxybenzone (4%), Zinc Oxide (1%)

Inactive Ingredients: Deonized water, propylene glycol, cetearyl alcohol, sorbitan stearate, sucrose cocoate, polyisobutene, dimethicone, C12-15, alkyl benzoate, xanthan gum, methyl paraben, propyl paraben, diazolydinyl urea

Keep in mind this is not the same exact stuff that Mark mentioned in his original post - he's got the SP50 stuff, which I imagine he's talking about the "anti-aging" formula. But this will at least give you an idea, plus you can click on the picture on the site to see what the front of the SP50 bottle says. Too bad they don't list the ingredients right on the site or that it's noncomedogenic. Hope this helps! - Karen

Does this stuff make your face look oily, greesy, or shiny after you put it on?

Not if used properly. If you rub it on quickly and not thoroughly,

then you will look a little shiny. If you rub it in well, which is the

best way to use it so it works best, your face looks normal.

Just used it for 7 straight days (on vacation trying to avoid sun)

and it was a pleasure. I put it on last, after other topicals.

Mark's Reply:

Of those, I am a bit concerned about the Cetearyl Alcohol and Sorbitan Stearate.

I don't know if this has been tested for comedogenecy as the Anti-Aging SPF 50 I have used has been. 'Cetearyl' and 'Stearate' are ingredients that could clog if in a formula where too much of them are used. But testing is best done to know that.

If you find it makes your skin clog, please try the SPF 50 I refer to. I know it has no ingredients I suspect. I was shocked to see how non-comedogenic it was.
