Say hello to an all natural zinc sunscreen that stays on in both big waves and sweaty activities on land. Doesn’t contain any questionable ingredients – free from chemicals that harm coral reefs – and won’t sting if it gets in your eyes. This is the original zinc sunscreen you’ve been looking for.
Made with Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, this reef safe sports sunscreen creates a visible layer of protection from the first moment of application. Unparalleled water resistance and high performance functionality loved by professional athletes and everyday adventurers around the globe.
Packaged in a plastic free and leak-proof tin jar that loves travelling as much as you do. Easiest to apply at temperatures above 20 degrees (if you’re in freezing temps, heat it up in a pocket or your hand before use).
How to use
The product works and provides sun protection in all temperatures, but when it’s cold it needs some convincing. The product has its optimal consistency in temperatures above 21 degrees and when the air is colder you can apply the following tricks to make the sunscreen easier to apply:
- Keep the tin in a pocket close to your body or warm it in your hands before applying the sunscreen. Any place that is warmer than 21 degrees will make the sunscreen become softer and the metal of the tin will transport the heat to the sunscreen.
- Use your fingernails to get the sunscreen out of the tin, then warm the sunscreen in the palm of your hand. When the sunscreen gets in contact with your skin it will soften up very quickly.
- Apply when inside, before you go out, for example when skiing.
The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) on a sunscreen label shows the amount of protection from UVB rays. An interesting fact that most people do not know about is that the SPF scale is not linear. For example, SPF 15 blocks 93% of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays and SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays. The difference between SPF 30 and SPF 50 is only one percentage point! Crazy, right?
SPF 50 sunscreens can therefore mislead people into thinking they are more protected than they actually are. SPF 50 also requires the use of UV filters that are not as safe as Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, the only UV filter we use. For this reason we never go above SPF 30.
