Who is This Guy Oahu Lou

I must say that prior to this conversation, I had never heard of “transparent zinc oxide” for sunscreen. Zinc oxide is the white stuff you might remember as a kid seeing lifeguards wear on their nose while sitting atop their roost, twirling their whistle around their finger, and looking like a beacon on a lighthouse.
