TIA Review by Marta:
Not only is Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen and Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 a rare sun protector that is based only on zinc oxide (no titanium dioxide and certainly no chemical sunscreens here), but- and I know that all you other antioxidant-files out there are going to be as excited as I was- it comes with astaxanthin.

This is a rather thick cream and if I am completely honest I'd prefer the consistency to be a little lighter. In the ruthless pursuit of science, I slathered it on to my nose for several days and was pleasantly surprised to find that it did not block or further enlarge the pores there.

The slight chalkiness that is typical of mineral sunscreens is evident for only a few moments and then seems to fade. Wear this over your serum and you won't need an additional moisturizer thanks to the aloe and hyaluronic acid.

The nicest thing about applying Suntegrity All Natural Moisturizing Face Protection SPF30 is that you get to think about some of the good things it is adding to your skin. Top of that list is, of course, astaxanthin, a dark red cartenoid pigment that is present, amongst other things, in salmon. A radical scavenger, analyses have shown that astaxanthin is also an efficient absorber of specific ultraviolet sunlight rays that may contribute to skin aging and cancer. It gets an antioxidant boost from red algae and pomegranate.

Our Take

I like Suntegrity’s mineral sunscreen range for face and body. The sunscreens are packed with antioxidants, including one of my favorites astaxanthin. However, I’ve always found the original Suntegrity facial sunscreen a little rich and heavy, requiring a little work to rub into the the skin... read more

    I had a similar experience to D. I only used this product for two days and broke out over my entire face. I have acne prone skin but I usually only get one or two pimples the day before menstruation. I couldn't believe how badly this broke me out. Definitely not recommended for acne prone skin.

    i been using this product for over a week now and have been experiencing breakouts and clogged pores. It also goes on thick and I had a hard time dispersing the product evenly. I wouldn't recommed for acne prone skin.

    I had the same issue as Sandra. After using Suntegrity for over 2 years, and loving it, my last order from Truth In Aging last October came in a sliver container (the previous containers had all been white). When the product came out in a separated state, I used it for a while, then wrote the company to ask if the silver container was for a new formula. Suntegrity's owner said it had not been reformulated, and said it must have been in the heat during shipping (although TIA is in New York and I am in Chicago, both of which have temperate climates in October). She generously sent a new one at no charge, this time from their company in California, but it is doing the same thing. Not sure what to try next - Suntegrity really worked for me!

    When I first purchased this product I absolutely loved it. It felt wonderful, smelled great and worked as a moisturizer and a sunscreen on my skin. I was happy I had found a product that made my skin feel amazing and protected me from the sun's rays. I was happy and excited to purchase my second container but when I used the second one I found that the product would separate and I would get a watery substance and a white "broken" substance when I pumped the product out of the container. I had a much harder time applying it to my face and it didn't seem to work as well. I figured it may have been just that one container, so when it was gone I purchased another one. To my great disappointment this one is doing the same thing. When I dispense it it comes out as a 1/2 watery and a 1/2 "broken" white substance. It is very hard to apply and I am wondering if the product is even working. I am very disappointed that this is no longer the creamy wonderful product I first purchased and fell in love with. I was hoping that the second one was a one time problem but after purchasing the third one with the same problem I felt I needed to say something. I have purchased many products from TIA and want to continue ...I am hoping Suntegrity will address and fix this issue.

    I've been using this product about 2 weeks now and am loving it! It blends into my skin very easily with no white residue and provides a smooth base for my foundation. I feel confident that my skin is well protected and looks it's best! I would say this is a don't miss product !

    Hi Ginger, the patents to mexoryl are owned by L'oreal and so you will only find it in their products. If you want mexoryl and a mineral sunscreen, you will have to wear two.

    Love this! I just ordered my second bottle. I feel like this sunscreen does more than just protect my face from UV rays. My skin looks and feels healthier when I use this sunscreen. It does not sting my eyes when I'm sweating and exercising outdoors. I have sensitive skin, but I've had no problems with breaking out with this product. I use this everyday, whether I plan on being in the sun or not. It's a great moisturizer and I know I can count on it's protection in the harsh California sun.

    I have looked for a long time for a sunscreen that has safe ingredients, high SPF, and is not greasy. This is it! Watch the video. It goes on just like in the video. When you apply on your face it looks totally white. Rub for 30-40 seconds and it has blended it perfectly, without being gross and greasy. It dries "flat". It even does some subtle, nice coverup like a foundation. It smells wonderful and leaves my skin smooth and healthy.

    I'm not a big believer in oral supplements. I am afraid that I have no experience of pure astaxanthin and I don't know if it can be applied directly to the skin. Sorry I can't be more help

    This moisturizer/sunscreen is better than expected. I've tried other sunscreens with half the SPF & were more whitish looking. This is nice & rich & doesn't feel like I've got something heavy on my skin.

    (5 out of 5)

    I love this product. I'm 53 with fairly normal skin. The moisture level in this product is perfect for my skin, the primer beats all other primers I've ever tried. And then there's sunscreen on top of all those benefits - it's really great. Yes it looks a little chalky for a few minutes, but it faces quickly and creates a lovely canvas to apply foundation. I'm a believer!

    This sunscreen has treated me well. I have Rosacea, and this hasn't irritated my skin... As a matter if fact is seems to calm it. I don't burn as easily when I wear it, it's not extremely heavy, no break outs, and it seems to moisturize.

    After reviewing this sunscreen on truth in aging and the enviormental working group websites, i purchased this sunscreen. It's a bit thickner than expected, but absorbs easily. i have not had any issues with skin breakouts with this product. I would recommend this to anyone as an everyday sunscreen.

    i’ve tried suntegrity for few days, and unfortunately, it has made me break out a little. little too thick also for everyday.those concerned with white, it really blends nicely, no chalky white residue. i’m one of readers who loved 100 tinted moisterizer. didn’t make me break out at all, but we’ve had few warmer days, got pretty red only 20 spf, so good for chicago winters.

    I'm so glad that I found this in time for summer! It is great, and not greasy or chalky, and -- my big fear -- doesn't clog up my skin. I am really pleased with it and am relying on it every day.

    Hi Elena, Suntegrity uses 20% non-nano zinc oxide and it is uncoated. This is what Suntegrity says about being uncoated: "Suntegrity uses uncoated zinc oxide because it is very therapeutic to the skin. Uncoated zinc oxide is the main ingredient used in Calamine lotion and baby diaper rash creams, and it also an ingredient often found in rosacea, melasma and acne treatments."

    Companies like Suntegrity and Badger believe that their particles are larger and therefore less reactive, and are counter-balanced by antioxidants.

    As for the essential oils, there is so much conflicting information on this that I'll have to do some deeper research.

    Hi Marta,
    is Suntegrity's zinc oxide coated? Many sources recommend coating as it prevents breakdown and thus, formation of free radicals. Also, I'm concerned about the sweet orange, grapefruit and tangerine essential oils. Aren't they supposed to be phototoxic?

  • Kim

    May 17, 2012

    Kim

    Suntegrity looks like it is on the right track ~ I hope these "toxic" items Erik Kreider mentions are removed or replaced - he is right about being vigilant about other ingredients we don't research. Relying on the maker to assure us their products are "Good" for us is not smart or healthy in many cases !

    I have been using Obagi 35 for years and I look like a ghost after I apply it. Also, it doesn't play well with some of my new favorite serums and moisturizers so I've been trying a few from Marta's store. The best I've found is the Suntegrity face and what I love most about it is that I can mix a dab of my usual tinted moisturizer (Laura Mercier or Mac) and I put it on thickly with a brush and my skin has never looked better. I got a sample from Marta and after using it for three days, I'm trashing the other full bottles of sunscreen once I get the order I'm placing today. My 56-year-old skin glowed like that of a 30-year-old. Even my husband noticed how nice my skin looked- all from the sunscreen. We live in California and have houses at the desert and the beach so I wear sunscreen daily and faithfully and I've tried many over the years, including Anthelios when you could only get it from France. I'm sold on Suntegrity. My only regret was I missed the sale, LOL!

    Thanks Stephanie. Looking forward to the results of your test. In the meantime, here's a link to the interview we did with the lovely Tricia http://truthinaging.com/sun-protection/suntegrity-skincare-interview-with-tricia-trimble

    I did want to let everyone know about how great the founder Tricia is:

    I purchased the entire line a few weeks ago via a promotion from a daily deal site, and then anxiously awaited my product's arrival through the mail. The package didn't arrive. About week after it was due, I investigated and found out the delivery service had left the package in my lobby. I never received the package, nor any notice that it had arrived.

    While playing detective, I contacted Suntegrity and Tricia the company's founder got back to me. We discussed the situation and she decided to send me another package via a different delivery service at no additional charge to me. I was so impressed with this display of customer service that I wanted to tell the TIA community as attentive customer service is a rare thing these days. So, heads up TIA community!


    I've just started using Suntegrity on half my face, and will report back in a few weeks.

    Hey Kristin,
    Marta liked Abella Colorshade in 09 and last year- that's a tinted sunscreen (spf 30). You can read about it here: http://truthinaging.com/makeup/100-pure-tinted-moisturizer-reviewed-and-recommended

    A site community member reviewed 100% Pure Tinted Moisturizer, and loved that. When someone asked Marta how she felt about 100% Pure vs Abella, Marta said that the 100% Pure is great and would prefer it unless she wanted something with a higher spf. That article is here: http://truthinaging.com/makeup/100-pure-tinted-moisturizer-reviewed-and-recommended

    Why am I answering your question? Procrastination of some work of course, *and* I love this site.

    Hi, Marta. Any recommendations on tinted moisturizers with SPF 20 or 30? I've been a Laura Mercier Tinted Moistureizer 20 devotee for years but can no longer turn a blind eye to the parabens and chemical sunscreen in the product. I've ordered the ColoreScience powder from your site but would also like a lotion option.
    Thanks.

    Just got back from 2 weeks in Sydney Australia. Used Badger water resistant SPF 30. Ingre. Zinc oxide 20.5%, extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, jojoba oil, cocoa & shea butter, co2 extracts of rosemary & seabucktorn berry. All certified organic. Particle size of zinc oxide 140 nm coated with safe silicone derivative. Does go on a bit pasty white fine as moisturizer in Toronto below 0 degrees but I use foundation bought in sephora Make up forever High definition invisible cover foundation. Made in France. Glides over zinc and seems to act as a good base. Seems thick at first but after a while blends in it does not look like I have any make up on just flawless skin. I sent my daughter ahead so she can enroll in uni and she was using Jurlique sunscreen. Brokeout badly, after using my Badger sunblock for 2 weeks her face cleared. Meant to pick up a tube of Invincible zinc promoted now by super model Elle macpherson but forgot, everyone is raving about it there. After all that I did not get burnt was wearing floppy hat on beach and managed to get a honey hue I would call it over my body as opposed to pasty Canadian white. I just finished a course of 5 ipl treatments so was very careful. I must say my skin is looking the best in 2 decades. Still some redness but when I flush it dissipates quicker very soft to the touch and is flawless when I apply make up even with out a base. I did have 2 jetpeels in the last few months and isomers 3000 use has helped. Regards

    My 55 yr old skin is very light. My biggest problem is I don't remember to put it on! It needs to be in my moisturizer or makeup. I was told I must use sunscreen all year. So it's tough. Many feel like plastic when I put them on.

    Can I try something nice & soothing?? Is there anything like that available?

    I would love to try some! I have to wear sunscreen all the time because I'm prone to melasma, but so many of them are harsh and clogging.

    Looks to be another company that 'markets' natural but 'sells' otherwise: 7 of the first eleven ingredients don't classify as natural - Sorbitan Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Hexyl Laurate, Cetyl Dimethicone, Dimethicone.
    Antimicrobials are preservatives precisely because they are toxic and kill organisms. Parabens got a lot of bad press because they were used ubiquitously - it's wrong to assume that ethylhexylglycerin will be any different - it's just new and there is basically NO safety data on it. The difference between it and parabens (see structure of ethylhexylparaben) is a scaffold of glycerin instead of benzene. But it's still a toxic preservative! TIA?
