This has been one of the most challenging recipes we've worked on. After much research and deliberation, we are using a product called Zinclear as the foundation. This is a dispersion of Zinc Oxide nano particles in the Coco Caprylate/Caprate which are all naturally occuring ingredients, and have ECO Cert, and Natural Products certification. We are very happy with the final product, and have had great feedback from all our volunteers.
Testing by Dermatest confirms that the SPF is over 30 and that the product meets both Critical Wavelength, and UVAPF and UVAPF/SPF requirements. We have it available in 60ml and 120ml tins as well as a 50gm in the Retro Tin range.
Apply to your skin before venturing into the sun. Re-apply regularly. Unlike the old style zinc sunscreens, ours won't leave your skin looking white. Common Sense: Avoid exposure during hottest part of day, wear light clothing and a hat.
Zinc Oxide is a broad spectrum UV blocker, and works instantly, the cream base and plant extracts enhance the SPF and help protect your skin from sun damage.
