Tested to FDA’s new 2011 rules by an independent laboratory and made with only 6 certified organic or mineral ingredients, it leads the industry in simplicity, broad spectrum effectiveness and certified organic ingredient content. (As of 3/1/2015, no other sunscreen manufacturer publishes their formula’s SPF Testing Data online! It’s a testament to Kabana’s dedication to providing our customers products with unsurpassed performance and transparency.)
It provides superior broad spectrum UVA protection with a critical wavelength of 380nm.
Green Screen D’s SPF of 35 provides the equivalent of 97.1% UVB absorbance protection when used at a density of two milligrams per square centimeter of skin area.
Green Screen® D Organic Sunscreen SPF 35 is easy to apply at all temperatures and essentially transparent at the rated SPF value.
The average individual particle size of the Zinc Oxide USP we use is 0.260 micron (260nm) with Standard Deviation of 0.012 micron (12nm). This means that there are statistically zero particles smaller than 100nm, the cutoff for the nano classification. Most nano sunscreens on the market have particle sizes in the range of 10-20nm.
See our knowledge base for more information on sunscreens and why non micronised Zinc Oxide is the safest ingredient to use.
It is always good to do a patch test on the arm before using a product no matter how gentle it is (for example, the face). This is a standard precaution as it is possible to be allergic to any soap or cosmetic or skin care product. We are all different, and we may not know of any sensitivities we may have to certain ingredients. If your skin becomes irritated or develops a rash, discontinue use.
*Please note: this is a mineral cosmetic formula that may stain clothing. It will normally wash out of clothing using normal laundry detergent in a modern washing machine.
Some additional benefits
Green Screen is an effective, healthy and safe sunscreen for your entire family. You can use it daily and be confident that it’s free of harmful petrochemicals that are known to bioaccumulate.
Zinc oxide is a better sunscreen active ingredient than titanium dioxide and the only one Kabana uses for the following reasons:
- Zinc oxide the most effective UV absorber across the entire UVA and UVB spectrum.
- ZInc oxide is made from the critical mineral nutrient zinc instead of the toxic heavy metal, titanium.
- Zinc oxide holds tight to its electrons when it absorbs UV energy and limits the creation of free radicals that do damage and increase the risk of skin cancer.
- Zinc oxide is the sole sunscreen active ingredient approved for use on children by FDA
The zinc oxide Kabana uses is non-nano, and not-micronized; there are zero zinc oxide nanoparticles in our formulas.
