Readers questions re Dermaquest ZinClear & Colorescience Sunscreen
- Dermaquest ZinClear – A reader asks why it’s so expensive. It’s expensive because it contains 18% zinc in a very fine, absorbable formulation. These are more expensive to make than the white pastes – up to 20% – than you can find in the drugstore. Sometimes we get what we pay for, but only you can decide if it’s worth it to you. However…….think how much money you spend on your car each year and then think about how much more time you spend in your skin!
- Colorscience Mineral Powder Sunscreen – A reader states he has sensitive skin and reacts to the binding powder that helps hold the minerals together. That’s possible and I believe him of course. But……..I also have to say that in years of using it with thousands of patients and blog readers, I’ve only seen one other person with a reaction to which is well below 1%. Many people with rosacea and sensitive skin use it without problems.
