3rd Rock Sunblock® Sunscreen Lotion is available as Aromatherapeutic, Unscented, and Infant.

3rd Rock Sunblock® Sunscreen Lotion SPF 35 natural sunscreen is formulated exclusively from food-grade ingredients only. Consequently, it prevents skin damage caused by BOTH the sun and the toxic compounds. 

Like any traditional natural sunscreen lotion, 3rd Rock Sunblock® SPF 35 non-toxic zinc oxide sunscreen offers unsurpassed UVA protection and provides pro-active skin benefits  better than synthetic-based sunscreens. It does so by preventing DNA damage that causes cell mutation by blocking UVA (across almost the entire UVA spectrum) and UVB rays, rather than only blocking UVB (for which SPF is the sole indicator) and minimal UVA wavelengths like many standard sunscreens. Research studies have shown that cancer cells develop in acidic environments. Due to these studies and the need for providing a long term (3+ years) sun-stable product, 3rd Rock Essentials formulated 3rd Rock Sunblock® Sunscreen Lotion with an alkaline (NOT ACIDIC) pH.

3rd Rock Sunblock® Sunscreen Lotion Ingredients: 

• Zinc oxide (23.5%) 
• USP Kosher Vegetable glycerin 
• Distilled Water 
• Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil 
• Gamma oryzanol 
• Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil 
• L-arginine

Why is there no expiration date?

3rd Rock Essentials' products are made with a glycerin base whereas most other products are made with a water & oil base. Therefore, our products should not separate or lose their efficacy.

Can the products be used on infants?

Yes, all of 3rd Rock Essentials products are completely safe to use on infants.

If the infant sunscreen gets in my child's eyes, will it make them tear up or irritate them?

Everything that gets into the eyes will "irritate" your eyes, so to say our product will not irritate the eyes would not be completely true. However, our products are alkaline not acidic, which means if it does happen to get into the eye, it won’t burn the eye continuously. There may be a slight sting, but there won't be a continuous burn like you may experience from some other mainstream products. The Zinc Oxide will irritate your eyes (like sand could), but we have chelated our zinc oxide, so the initial irritation will subside. Our sunscreen is also chelated with amino acids, which are biocompatible with bodily fluids including ocular fluids.

What is the difference between the infant sunscreen and adult sunscreen?

There is no main difference between the two sunscreens besides a slightly whiter look so that parents can see where they have applied the sunscreen on their children. We use the same ingredients for both sunscreens and are safe for all ages.

Do you use nano zinc oxide?

No, 3rd Rock Essentials products are solely made with micronized zinc oxide, not nano zinc oxide. We choose not to use nano zinc oxide.

Do you perform tests on animals?

Absolutely not. 3rd Rock Essentials has a leaping bunny certification which provides surety that we meet the standards of PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies, cruelty-free standards.

Why is the sunscreen so thick?

Our sunscreen is a glycerin based product, which makes the sunscreen seem much thicker. However, a small amount of the sunscreen can go a long way. You do not need to apply the same amount of our sunscreen as you would with other sunscreens.
