TINTED ZINC CREAMS COMING - WATCH THIS SPACE
Reef-safe zinc cream for the eco-conscious! High level protection from the sun's harmful rays with 25% non-nano zinc oxide, water resistant and non-greasy. Proudly tested on people (not animals!) under the harsh Aussie sun.
This 100% natural formula contains photo-reflective mineral zinc oxide from The Netherlands, which is also naturally very soothing to skin - making this cream excellent for both protecting skin and (if you're unlucky) post-sunburn treatment.
Perfect for use on the face with highly nutritious macadamia oil as the base; a beautifully lightweight oil which is readily absorbed, antioxidant-rich quandong infused in sunflower oil to help protect skin against the sun's harmful free radical producing effects, plus a touch of organic tapioca powder for its moisture absorbent properties to help you combat the sweatiness of summer heat. Raw unbleached Victorian beeswax is what makes the cream stay put and gives it a good water-resistant quality, but as with all sunscreens, reapplication after swimming or excessive sweating is important for maximum efficacy, and wearing appropriate clothing and sunglasses is always a good idea especially during peak UV times.
A little goes a long way so take care to not apply too much and rub in well. Although the cream appears white, if appropriately rubbed in you should be able to see the zinc particles when you look closely at your pores but it should not leave your skin looking all pasty white at all. Suitable for daily use.
