Which is the best zinc oxide based sunblock or zinc based sunscreen available in the Indian market? Which is the best oil free zinc oxide sunscreen suitable for men? Which is the best zinc based physical sunscreen suitable for acne prone skin in India?
One of the best zinc oxide based sunscreens for men & women in India is Ranbaxy Suncros gel. It has nanonized zinc, meaning really really fine ground zinc which prevents the look of a white cast on brown skin.
Lacto Calamine lotion also contains zinc oxide for sun protection, but there is no SPF mentioned, so you don’t know the amount of sun protection you will get from using Lacto Calamine as a sunscreen. Read a review of Lacto Calamine here.
Suncros makes the skin really oiy though and as a result makeup slides and skin looks dark. But it didnt break me out on the plus side. It doesnt leave a white cast.
Do try Melagard spf 50+, it have zinc oxide in it and it is runny liquid though slight oily but provides adequate protection. Suncros was a lot oily for my skin too so melagard is a good choice acc. to me. I dont know why people are not aware of this good sunscreen . It was suggested by my dermo .You can also try ‘Ekran aquagel’ , it is not oily too, my latest dermo have prescribed me instead of Suncote. So u can give it a shot…..
