FROM THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE
I have dry, sensitive eyes, so I frequently
use eyedrops. I thought this was a good sunscreen because
it never made my eyes burn, but I didn't fully appreciate
it until I slathered a friend's sunscreen on my face when
I was without the Z Blok. My eyes began stinging and burning
the minute I applied eyedrops because I had applied my friend's
sunscreen the same way I apply Z Blok — on my eyelids
and around my eyes. Z Blok protects my face and neck from
UVA and UVB rays without limiting my use of eyedrops. Unlike
some zinc oxide products that look like clown makeup, this
sunscreen goes on white but easily blends into the skin.
For women, it's also a good makeup primer.

Z Blok’s unique formula does not
utilize any of the inexpensive
petroleum based ingredients often found in other sunscreens.
We avoided these ingredients
precisely because they often
burn or irritate the eyes.
