answer 1
There are no parabens (i.e., methylparaben, propylparaben) in this product. However, not familiar with PABA so can't say if product has it or not.

As far as I know from the list of all ingredients, it is oil free. It is not listed as oil free on the bottle though. It contains glycerin that gives it moisturizing properties.

It is not oil-free as far as I know but Shiseido did just come out with an Oil-free version with SPF 42 which is also very nice as well.

Is the cream texture similar to the Spf 55 cream?

Yes, but SLIGHTLY less water in it, so the tiniest bit "goopier." I prefer the texture of this one to the 55, but I do use both and love both. Also, while it is water-resistant, it's not quite as strong, so it doesn't leave as much of a residue on your face and absorbs a little more quickly.

It contains Octinoxate 2.9% and Octocrylene 3.0% which are both chemical sunscreens which reflect UVA rays away from skin, and Zinc Oxide 10.6% which is a physical sunscreen that blocks UVB rays.

Usually you can tell the difference in ingredients this way: ingredient with the word "zinc" in it is physical and everything else is chemical.

Question
Is this a thick cream?
I'm not suppose to use thick creams on my face. If this is a thinner cream, I'll be able to use it.

No, this is a lightweight, non-greasy cream. Based on my experience (and I have fair, sensitive and combination skin), I'd recommend it for all skin types. You might want to try a sample before buying the full-size product. Hope this helps.

The main difference between the two is the Urban Environment one is more designed to protect against pollution and other things that cause harmful oxidation to skin which result in wrinkles, dull skin tone and dark spots.

This product contains more moisturizer instead of just sunscreen, and it can be washed with regular face wash instead of having to use an oil based cleanser like the other product needs, to get all the sunscreen out.

I'm not 100% sure. But in my opinion, I don't think it's nano-sized since it's quite think and it leaves a white colour on face.

Any zinc particles are not noticeable to me. I like the matte translucent veil that this spf provides to tone down mild redness or unevenness. I don't SEE any zinc particles with my naked eyes.

Not all products are for sentitive skin. Some people might even sensitive from SPF ingredients. They are also sold in retailer counter which is in most shopping malls.
