Meghan, wonder whether the concentration of zinc oxide makes a difference in how your skin reacts? Caribbean Sol SPF 25 has 3.5% zinc oxide and 9% titanium dioxide -- supposedly the lower SPF have less. It's a shame to have to choose between red sunburned nose and red rosacea nose.

You don't have to choose between killing tiny organisms and killing your own self with melanoma. The sun stuff I use is Caribbean Solutions -- I picked it up originally at a hotel in Florida and liked it so much I buy it on the internets (caribbean-sol.com). It has titanium dioxide and zinc oxide and a bunch of plant extracts and that's it. No nasty petrochemicals. And it works, I live in Colorado, where you can really get fried summer and winter. Some of the health food store brands may be OK -- dunno what's in them, you'll have to read the label.
