Make Your Own Physical Mineral Sunscreen

Ask anyone who cares about their skin: sunscreen is essential. But with everything out on the market, it's hard to find a sunscreen that is safe for your skin. Instead of dealing with all those chemical sunscreens we can't pronounce, we took matters into our own hands and learned how to make a healthy, all-natural sunscreen at home. And bonus: it only requires three ingredients — four, if you include your own signature scent.

Note: Please consult a physician before any homemade project if you're pregnant, deal with certain skin conditions or otherwise.

Perhaps you should consider how 'irresponsible' it is to lather chemicals on your skin whose composition you couldn't even break down or explain simply because it came in a package from a store. The SPF here isn't 'guessed'; this is a well-known, long-used lotion and sunscreen recipe.

This is really irresponsible. No sunscreen claims can be made without testing. The SPF ability of chemicals (including zinc oxide) are entirely related to and dependent on the interactions with the base ingredients. How was this even calculate/guessed?
