One of the admins on the GuaiGroup said this: “use plain zinc oxide mixed with my every day lotion. It works great. I am very fair and burn easily. My dermatologist has endorsed this!”
I googled a recipe for making sunscreen with lotion, and here is what I found, in percentages. PLEASE be careful when handling Zinc Oxide, wear gloves and a mask if at all possible!
For a Low SPF 2-5 use 5% Zinc Oxide
For Moderate SPF 6-11 use 10% Zinc Oxide
For High SPF 12-19 use 15% Zinc Oxide
For Ultra HIgh SPF>20 use 25% Zinc Oxide
