I cycle outdoors for extended periods of 4hrs plus, been informed that intelligent suncream with 20% nanonised zinc is the best for face usage.
Do you recommend this suncream? Or would you recommend an alternative and if so why??
Kind Regards


Our best outdoor/sports sunscreen is Actinica. It is not zinc based. It has a very high rating (over 50 spf , but not advertised as this),  and importantly will withstand sweating better than the other sunscreens.
