Sunscreens can be greasy, sticky and goopy, which are reasons why many people don’t use them. However, your opinion about sunscreens will change once you try Coppertone Pure & Simple SPF 50 Sunscreen. Formulated for sensitive skin, this is a mineral-based (zinc oxide) sunscreen that is free from PABA, phthalates, fragrances, sulphates, parabens, dyes, alcohol and oxybenzone – basically, ingredients that can be irritating to the skin.
