What about Vitamin C? Why is that included in some of your formulas?

Vitamin C itself does not cause irritation, instead, compounds called furanocoumarins found in ingredients rich in vitamin C are the culprits in triggering photosensitivity and/or photodermatitis. Both our PLAY Antioxidant Body Mist SPF 50, PLAY Antioxidant Body Mist SPF 30 and Glow Oil SPF 50 contain very, very low levels of furanocoumarins to ensure the lowest risk of irritation. On the flip side, Vitamin C in sunscreen formulas actually helps sunscreens be more effective by scavenging free radicals that get generated by UV rays.
