Many of Rodan and Fields’ skin care facial sunscreens contain Butyloctyl Salicylate.
To test all of them, I put them to the test on my skin to see if it’s worth their hefty price tags. Then, I swatched several to see which one contained the most minor ingredient. I also tested products containing the ingredient and recommend you stick with it unless you really want to find out how your skin reacts.
- Soothe Daily Calming Lotion Sun Protection
What This Regular Calming Lotion Does: Our lightweight lotion for sensitive skin calms, soothes, and reduces apparent redness while protecting against UV rays and everyday aggressors that cause irritation.
The RF3 Antioxidant Complex and Artichoke Leaf Extract from Rodan and Fields work together to protect skin from environmental aggressors. It also absorbs quickly and blends into the skin, leaving no trace or white cast, rendering it almost undetectable under makeup.

Consider this face lotion to be a weightless veil that protects skin from environmental aggressors and UVA/UVB exposure, which may aggravate sensitive or redness-prone skin.
