A broad-spectrum UV photoprotective composition is described. The composition is characterized in that the composition comprises mesoporous zinc oxide aggregates having an average aggregate size of at least 0.8 microns dispersed in a carrier and the composition is visibly transparent. Sufficient zinc oxide is included in the composition to achieve an SPF greater than 15, greater than 25, greater than 30, or greater than 50.
