This buttery sunscreen protects the skin against the sun, but also against the wind and the cold. Almond butter is soothing for the skin and Mineral Shield light protects against all of the elements. The pink colour of the Mineral butter blends perfectly with the skin – there is no white cast on the skin after application.
It is a simple formula, that satisfies beach goers, forest wanderers and also winter shredders.
Using only mineral filters and natural ingredients Amazinc! have developed functional and nature friendly Sun protection.
How to use: Apply generously at least 15 min before exposure to the sun, and then reapply regularly at least every 2 - 3 hours or after exposure to water or after sweating.
Chemical vs Mineral Suncreen:
Chemical sunscreens have ingredients (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate) that may potentially cause health problems. According to some recent research, they seep through the skin into the bloodstream after only a couple hours. These chemicals persist in the blood for up to seven days and exceed, by up to 40 times the allowed limits.
These chemicals can also damage coral reefs. Even though coral reefs stretch over less than 1% of Oceans floor, they provide home for more than 25% of marine species and they too have the ability to absorb CO2. In general, the world’s Oceans absorb as much CO2 as rainforests and healthy reefs are playing a very important role in this process.
Mineral sunscreens, on the other hand, use two natural minerals - zinc oxide and titanium dioxide - as active ingredients. These minerals simply sit on top of your skin and protect it by reflecting away UV rays.
