It's PABA free, but I don't think it's chemical-free. I still love it, though. For a chemical-free sunscreen, try something by Coola (unfortunately, Sephora doesn't yet carry it). Coola sunscreens are great, and they're organic. I've been reading up on finding a healthy and chemical-free sunscreen lately, too.
But, I do happen to be using the Shiseido SPF 38 right now and love it. SInce it's water-resistant, it needs to be removed with an oil-based cleanser (Shiseido makes one, so does NUDE...the Nude one is better). These oil cleansers sound weird, but will not cause breakouts . I've been using them for years for sunscreen/makeup removal prior to washing my face...I have really good skin, so I guess this system works.

Hope that helps!
