Pure Mineral Sunscreen SPF 15, for Normal to Very Dry Skin is my favorite sunscreen to use in sunny climates when I’m going to be outside for a long day. This gentle formula contains only titanium dioxide and zinc oxide and has a silky texture that applies easily and feels light. Green tea and grape are the chief antioxidants, and these coupled with the non-sensitizing actives makes this a great choice for those dealing with rosacea or for use on children.

Exceptionally silky, antioxidant-rich lotion provides generous broad-spectrum protection while leaving a beautiful, soft matte finish once thoroughly massaged into skin.

Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 6.94%; Zinc Oxide 2.25% (sunscreen agents). Other Ingredients: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone (silicones used as skin conditioning and suspending agents for the sunscreen actives), Methylpropanediol (slip agent), PEG-10 Dimethicone (silicone thickener), Glycerin (skin-identical ingredient), PEG-10 Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer (water resisting agent), Alumina (thickener), Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer (water resisting agent), Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract (antioxidants/soothing agents), Methicone (skin conditioning agent), Triethoxycaprylylsilane (binding agent), Butylene Glycol (solvent), Sodium Chloride (stabilizer), Magnesium Sulfate (thickener), Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben (all preservatives).

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.

Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research
  • Proven effective solutions for wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin
  • Gentle yet effective products for those seeking a natural skin-care routine
  • Fragrance-free formulas (because it is what's best for your skin)
  • Cruelty-free formulas: Paula's Choice does not test on animals during any stages of product development—nor do we contract with third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf
  • Environmentally-friendly products that feature minimalist packaging that ensures product efficacy
  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    Excellent non greasy sunscreen
    • I love this sunscreen. It's perfect under make up. It's a lot cheaper than the skin recovery spf 15 which I also use.I tend to use the skin recovery when not wearing make up as I find it to be more moisturising.My skin is combination, but to be honest even though pure mineral is recommended for very dry skin , I think women who fall into this category might not find it moisturising enough.It's excellent for my combo skin though and it's an excellent product.Highly recommended.
