Incomplete IL for an SPF?
Is this another example of a brand not complying with regulatory, especially for an OTC?
I have not worked on sunscreens too much, but I can absolutely see how this is incomplete…no emulsifier? No polymer? 12% ZO just floating around and properly dispersed in this base? The brand owner is not being transparent and simply said “The Zinc is a hydrophilic and suspended in a lipid base for sheer application”
Thoughts? This is how it is listed on the bottle in the drug facts panel.
