I saw that Desitin has like 40% zinc oxide, so that should give tons of protection against the sun. I was thinking this would be good to use after a chemical peel. Am I crazy? Can Desitin be used on face? Or is it too strong?

You'd better do not use it as a sunscreen.
Suncreen always has some professional ingredients to protect our skin from sun shine, UVA and UVB can not be defended by Desitin.

Anyone else has an opinion about this? NOTCH? The cream is just so thick I feel it must be able to protect your skin from the UVs.

I don't see why it wouldn't work as a physical block, since it is mainly zinc oxide. Isn't this an old trick of Aussie surfers--putting it on the nose?

Yes, I think so. A teacher told me to put desitin on my kid's face one day but that was not for the sun. It was for a play.

Yeah probably but I was thinking of using it to ensure maximum sun protection after I do a chemical peel. Cool
