Product Description

  • A natural, water-resistant, Zinc-based SPF 30 sunscreen.
  • We use natural clear Zinc in a topical cream, rubs in clear.
  • Active ingredients: Zinc Oxide 24.96% w/w.
  • No chemical UV filters – Zinc provides broad spectrum protection.
  • For everyone and everywhere. Use on face and body, all ages and skin types.
  • Moisturising and gentle enough to reapply throughout the day as required.

We wish making a good sunscreen using only Zinc as the active ingredient was as easy as putting Zinc into a moisturiser; but it’s not. Developing a sunscreen with broad spectrum sun protection using only zinc, without bring too greasy is very complicated. The cream needs to be stable, provide a good reflective film, be naturally preserved etc. All of these things took us 4 years of work to achieve. Bit it was worth it, because we were able to make something we’re proud of and happy to use on ourselves, our family and our loved ones.

We use Zinc because it’s naturally derived, even if it makes the cream a bit thicker and a little harder to apply. Zinc Oxide acts like a reflective umbrella on the skin, reflecting UV rays away. It’s suitable for all ages, from babies to adults, and even new-borns. And also all skin types, even for the most sensitive.

Our sunscreen suits people that are sensitive to sunscreen with UV filters, and wants a Zinc-based sunscreen that is not greasy. It’s also for people who like to know what’s in their sunscreen.

Tip: Rub in with a quick smear, and allow it to sit on the skin for 30 seconds or so to warm up to body temperature, and then rub it in clear. A little extra effort for a lot of extra benefit.

Ingredients: Aqua (H₂O’s Fancy Name), Zinc Oxide (for Sun Protection), Coco Caprylate (Coconut-Based Conditioner), Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Olivate (Olive-Based Emulsifier), Glycerin (Sugar Alcohol), Lecithin (Soy), Cera Alba (Beeswax), Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate (Emulsifier), Galactoarabinan (Emulsifier), Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate (Emulsifier), Polyhydroxystearic Acid (Emulsifier), 1,2-Hexanediol (Moisturiser), Caprylyl Clycol (Skin Conditioner), Tropolone (Skin Soother), Cetyl Phosphate (Emulsifier), Sodium Chloride (Salt), Oleic Acid (Emulsifier). Zinc is very complicated to formulate with, as Zinc naturally “clumps” so ingredients have to be used to make sure this doesn’t happen and it’s able to be spread evenly. So although we typically like to avoid using anything that we struggle to pronounce, this moisturiser and binder was by far the best way to keep the cream moist, preserved and free from bacteria.
