    Thank you for making this product. I have a family member that has to use a titanium dioxide product due to prescription medication that they are on. I am so pleased to find a product on the market for them.

    Re Ego Sunsense Sensitive SPF 50+:
    (1) Is this product designed for use on the face and neck?
    (2) Is it non-comodogenic?
    (3) I don't see zinc oxide in the ingredients list, yet it is mentioned on the discussion forum as included in the product. Is it listed under an alternative name?

    Thank you.

    Hi Mary,

    SunSense Sensitive is water-resistant and non-comedogenic, and contains zinc. It can be used on the face and neck, although due to the physical blocker zinc, it can feel heavy and give a white cast to the skin. A facial sunscreen (e.g. Daily Face) would be a better option for daily use, and you can reapply during the day if you are exercising outdoors.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.

    I purchased this product after purchasing what I assumed was simply a 'repackaged' SunSense toddler milk roll-on as it was labelled 'for kids'. Unfortunately, it proved to be a VERY different formula, and not only did I come out with an allergic reaction, but so did my son (never allergic to other creams). SunSense has been the only suncream I have used since it was first released when I was a child due to my allergies to many other suncreams.

    This zinc-based suncream was the only one I was willing to try from the pharmacy range. I was annoyed that it only came in such a large tube. I put it on and was sad it was as white as the zinc I had used 30 years ago. And then angry to find it had marked, and stained, clothes, car seatbelts, and car interior.

    I refuse to put it anywhere except my face now, and am reluctant to use it on my child, and am investigating different products.

    Hi Bronwyn,

    The SunSense Sensitive range uses a physical blocker (zinc) for UV protection for people who are unable to tolerate chemical absorber UV protective ingredients. Zinc can cause a 'white' appearance to the skin, as we do not use nanoparticle technology in our SunSense Sensitive range to minimise interactions.

    We would like to hear more about your experience with both SunSense Junior and SunSense Sensitive. We are continually improving our products and seek consumer feedback to provide the best pharmacy range we can offer. Please contact our Customer Service team on 1800 033 706 or to discuss these issues further.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team
