Product Description

Total Block SPF 65 protects your skin against all forms of light, visible, infrared and ultraviolet. Crucial for those with Lupus and other Autoimmune Diseases, Vitiligo, Rosacea, Radiation Patients, Polymorphous Light Eruption (PMLE), Skin Cancer, Organ Transplants, Porphyria, Sun Hypersensitivities as well as those who are post laser resurfacing, are on chemotherapy or other sun sensitizing medications (including blood pressure, acne, antibiotics and diuretics) or have other exquisitely sun sensitive skin conditions. Goes on clear. Offers complete blockage of light. This is a completely unique product and VERY IMPORTANT for the complete protection of many patients.

Fallene Total Block Clear SPF 65 is a highly effective sunscreen product formulated with photo-protective and cellular-protective agents that are beneficial to the skin. Total Block is unique in its ability to protect skin from the full light spectrum and prevent cellular environmental damage to the skin, regardless of the source of the pollutants. Incorporating eight forms of mill-dispersed solids -- ranging in controlled particle size from 10 microns down to a few nanometers -- Total Block achieves maximum protection throughout the entire UVB and UVA range. These particles are homogeneously suspended and work to shield the skin from atmospheric damage and trauma. Micronized and sub-micronized particles of titanium dioxide, sub-micronized zinc oxide, and ultra-micronized iron oxide form the foundation of this powerful, effective sunscreen.

The Total Block Clear SPF 65 offers:
  • Full-spectrum sun protection.
  • Combined multiple particle sizes of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and iron oxide.
  • Special formula that is perfect for photo-sensitive individuals.


Fallene Total Block Clear SPF 65 sunscreen combines multiple particle sizes of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and iron oxide to offer excellent full-spectrum protection.
The Full-Spectrum Sun Protection
Fallene, Ltd. produces the most complete full spectrum sun protection available. Total Block Clear SPF 65, Cotz SPF 58, Lipcotz SPF 45, and Total Block Tinted SPF 60, all combine multiple particle sizes of micronized titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and iron oxide to form a complete barrier from the light spectrum, including UVA/UVB.

The Total Block Clear SPF 65, as well as the other Fallene products, are specially designed for photo-sensitive individuals, but are perfect for anyone concerned about maintaining healthy skin and promoting the integrity of their immune system.

The Dangers of UVB Wavelengths
SPF rating does not adequately measure protection from all the damaging radiation effects of light. SPF is only a determination of protection from one specific wavelength of ultraviolet radiation, the UVB (290nm - 320nm). Unfortunately, there is no currently approved standard to rate the quality of a sunscreen's UVA protective capabilities. UVA (320nm - 400nm) is the deeper penetrating wavelength that is more often associated with skin changes, such as wrinkling, pigmentation, and long term damage. The SPF rating system does not accurately or completely define a sunscreen's protective capabilities from harmful ultraviolet radiation, except the UVB wavelength.

UVB creates a red, painful irritation first experienced during early sun exposure, but UVB is not the only ultraviolet wavelength damaging to the skin. In fact, UVB has only a minimal effect upon the deeper depth of skin. UVB and UVA radiation are both recognized as causing skin cancer, and SPF 30 protection is just not enough.

Direct Physical Photoblockers Benefits
Most of the physical photoblockers are naturally occurring metal compounds (iron, chromium, zinc, titanium, etc), although some, such as bismuth, are man-made. In addition to their photo-protective attributes, these substances also assist in preventing windburns and skin damage from wind-driven micro-particles, such as dirt and grime. These physical blockers also offer a substantial defense against infrared rays in two ways.



Winter, spring, summer or fall -- no matter what the season, Lipcotz SPF 45 protects your skin from harmful rays.


Minimize wrinkling, skin-damage, and photo-aging with Fallene sun-protection products.
First, particles that are large enough to be seen, i.e. the reflect visible light, will also reflect and refract infrared waves that are the most harmful to the skin (760nm - 1,800nm). Second, regardless of particle size, these metal-based materials act as a "heat sink" and thereby reduce the heat effect on the skin.

Titanium Dioxide: Absorbs Light and Protects Skin
This white-pigment powder is widely used in cosmetics. Products containing large-particle titanium have a greater opacity, which means they have greater lightening or whitening qualities. Opaque titanium dioxide is highly reflective and strongly scatters all UV and visible rays. It also reflects much of the skin-damaging infrared waves, keeping skin cooler and reducing "heat" damage that causes unwanted photo-aging.

To photo-stabilize titanium dioxide it must be micro-coated with a protectant, such as silicone or aluminum oxide. Since titanium dioxide spreads poorly on the skin, another way to inhibit its breakdown is to incorporate titanium dioxide with other blockers. To achieve cosmetic elegance and usefulness, microcoating the titanium dioxide assures a good, even application to the skin. A downside of large-particle titanium dioxide products is that they produce a white, opaque appearance on the skin when applied. However, submicronizing the titanium dioxide powder, as Fallene does, creates small particles that absorb visible light and protect the skin, but they're still invisible on the skin, so you're not covered in embarrassing white salve.

Transparent (sub-micronized) titanium dioxide works by absorbing, reflecting and scattering UVB and some UVA rays. However, protection against UV, visible and infrared is significantly limited when submicronized titanium dioxide is the primary protectant.

Zinc Oxide: Extends Photo-Protection
Zinc Oxide has been known and used topically for centuries as a skin protectant and wound-healing adjuvant and is also recognized as a mild antimicrobial agent. More than 50 years ago, zinc oxide was indicated as a block for ultraviolet light (UVB/UVA). It also reflects infrared from the skin, as does titanium dioxide. However, its ability to protect in the long UVA range (300nn - 400nm) is much higher than titanium dioxide. Zinc oxide absorbs, rather than scatters, most UVA, while titanium dioxide primarily scatters these wavelengths. Thus, formulated in combination with titanium dioxide, ultra-fine zinc oxide "closes the window" in the UVA range. Zinc oxide works to both complement titanium dioxide's protection and extend photo-protection to the skin where titanium dioxide is insufficient. The optimal particle size range for ultraviolet blocking zinc oxide (without blocking visible wavelengths) is approximately 80 to 150 nanometers (1,000 nanometers = 1 micron).

Iron Oxides: Adds Color and Complements Primary UV Blocking Agents
Iron oxide is used in a wide array of cosmetics to provide cover-up color. Cosmetic iron oxides are manufactured to a high purity, desired color and particle size.

Iron oxide pigments for cosmetic use are micronized powders. They are available in a number of shades and tones of red, yellow, black and brown. These cosmetic pigments, if incorporated at adequate concentration and properly dispersed, not only add color, but they also provide significant skin protection from multiple wavelengths of light.

Ultra-submicronized iron oxides protect against visible light waves, but also add a little color to the finished product. This allows for the addition of higher levels of infrared protecting iron oxides, while retaining the cosmetic elegance and shade of the final preparation. Submicronized iron oxides block ultraviolet rays, which is a great complement to the primary UV blocking agents.

  • Great Product
    I am fair skinned(red hair blue eyes).I have used this product for over 10 years now and would swear by it.Use the clear type....more info
  • Only for serious sunblock
    I received a sample of this product at a trade show a number of years ago. I have what you would call mild rosacea. If I get any type of over exposure to the sun my face really shows it. This product will totally stop this. Yes, it does have a film, but not like the lifeguards wear on their noses. If you apply it sparingly in a thin layer and massage it in, it will blend in well. It does not take much to offer you complete protection. If you have mild rosacea it will actually lighten up your skin a tad, and for many of us this is not totally undesireable. I only use it on my face and ears which are problem areas for me. I enjoy the outdoors (Cancun vacations, fishing, hiking, working in the garden) without worry that my face will turn beet red and remain that way for days or weeks to come. I use this product regularly, and would not be without it when I travel or if intend to be outdoors. ...more info
  • non-greasy sunblock
    This sunblock was recommended to me by a dermatologist. It can be added to moisturizer, or used alone. It goes on non-greasy, and stays that way. It has no smell..Yay!!!

    My only complaint is that the consistency varies. One bottle might be thicker than the next. I prefer it not too thick, so it will come out of the bottle more easily....more info
  • One of the best against the sun, but too "white"
    I had tried everything in the market. Not only because I have fair skin, but because I am suffering Melasma over my mouth and cheeks. This had been the ONLY sunscreen that maintain my skin without worsen my Melasma. I use this one when I will not use make up. Because is too white and you have to wait until is really dry to be able to use make up, if not you will end with a 'mess'. The other one with a little tint, although has less SPF contains zinc and TD which are the best ingredients against sun damage....more info
  • Worth every penny
    This is by far the best sun block I have ever used. It goes on well and does the job it says it will, totally blocks the sun. I used it in Florida recently and never burned and I have skin that burns within 20 to 30 minutes of strong sunlight. Also this did not cause any irritation to my super sensitive skin. I use in whenever I see that we are having a sunny day as UV rays penetrate car windows. The key to using this product is to put it on about 20 to 30 minutes before going out and to reapply every three hours or so. ...more info
  • Great Sun Protection and Feels Good Too
    I have used Fallene Total Block Clear for years. It is the best facial sunscreen I've ever found, plus it's highly recommended by my dermatologist. Though during application it looks thick and slightly beige, on my fair/medium skin it dries almost invisibly, neither oily nor drying. It also gives a "finished" look to my skin, so that during the day, I often apply it and run, without using foundation. Most importantly, it contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, great barriers to skin-damaging UVA/UVB rays. Do your skin a favor and give it a try! ...more info
  • White face paint?
    I bought this sunscreen at the insistance of my mother who was just diagnosed with skin cancer on her face. I am naturally quite tan and she is not. So after applying it I looked like I had a significant chalky hue to my face and my face was much whiter than my neck and arms. It did not "sink in" no matter how much I tried to rub it in. It did not apply well on my kids faces either. So I gave that to my mom. I switched to Neutrogena Ultra Sheer dry touch SPF 70. It works very well with all of us and was recommended by my dermatologist. I did also buy Fallene Cotz SPF 58 (a slight deal if you buy it together with Total Block) and it also does not rub in but I will use it on my kids until it runs out since it doesn't burn their eyes. ...more info
