This daily sunscreen looks good, feels good AND smells good - it has a fresh, naturally derived citrus scent (no sunscreen smell here) and soft-matte finish (never greasy).
Mineral sunscreen takes longer to absorb into skin vs. chemical sunscreen. Due to the high percentage of zinc in our formulation (16.3%), depending on your skin tone, you may see a white cast that could fade over time. To help offset this mineral cast, we added in our iconic light-reflecting mineral pigment.
This powerful sunscreen combines broad spectrum mineral SPF 30, vitamin C and banana powder-inspired pigments to protect AND correct your complexion, brightening dull, uneven skin tone over time and preventing future visible sun damage.
So, go ahead and enjoy the restorative power of the sun. While Banana Bright Sunscreen protects your complexion, you can bask in the sunlight, regulate your circadian rhythm (aka your ticket to better sleep) and increase your energy and serotonin.

Is this a chemical or physical sunscreen?
Banana Bright Mineral SPF is a physical sunscreen that contains 16.3% zinc oxide. Physical sunscreens (also called mineral sunscreens) use mineral-based ingredients to instantly reflect and scatter harmful UV rays, acting like a shield for your skin. The future of sunscreen is mineral!
Why did we choose a mineral sunscreen?
When it comes to SPF, Ole prefers a physical formula over a chemical one. While chemical sunscreens are absorbed into skin, physical sunscreens are made with minerals—including zinc oxide—that sit on skin’s surface and create a physical barrier to instantly reflect UVA and UVB rays. Physical sunscreens are also known to be better for the environment.
Why SPF 30?
When applied correctly, SPF 30 delivers all the topical sun protection you need—in fact, it’s the recommended SPF dosage from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) for sun protection.
