SUNSCREEN, stick style. ZOCA Lotion – 35 SPF Reef-safe.
The PlasticPhobe’s favorite sunscreen. Comes in a fat cardboard tube, about 4-inches tall and 1 ¼ inches fat. SPF 35+. Cruelty-free, REEF-safe, which means no oxybenzone, the stuff that kills coral reefs and the ocean. There’s no plastic, and although the silver paper label may raise an eyebrow, the woman behind this is super conscientious – here's a note from Zoca Lotion on disposal of cardboard tube, etc and a neat tip if you accidentally push the tube too far:
"This was the easiest packaging choice we've had to make. Our cardboard tubes are completely compostable and biodegradable while still being a sturdy vehicle for our products. After removing the sticker label, feel free to throw these into your home compost receptacles. If you over-push your face stick, gently tap the bottom of the tube on a flat surface and the product will recede."
Also, it's FDA tested to be 40+ minutes water resistant.
It goes on white, rubs in easily.
One stick has lasted Roman about a year – usually applied on face, neck, ears, arms and hands – he throws it in his bag on any bike ride and its never melted on him.
