What It Does For Your Skin
Pure Zinc Oxide SPF 30 Lotion is formulated with the highest quality certified organic ingredients for effective, year-round broad spectrum protection at any altitude and during any type of physical activity. This gentle, unscented formula protects from extrinsic factors, such as UVA and UVB radiation, known to cause cellular damage, skin cancer and premature aging. Our specialized biodegradable formula provides the highest level of sun protection and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes thanks to our unique blend of ingredients.
Our formula contains pharmaceutical grade uncoated non-nano zinc oxide and Vitamin E; and certified organic plant based ingredients. Our inactive ingredients consist of natural oils, beeswax, shea butter, and Vitamin E which condition, heal, protect and moisturize the skin. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant against free radicals as well as a natural preservative.
Why We Love It
Pure Zinc Oxide SPF 30 Lotion is most effective for high-altitude and water-related activities and at the beach where the sun’s rays are the strongest. Our formula is emollient based, so although it is slightly thicker than our other sunscreen products, it is still fast absorbing and has a moisturizing finish once it dries. It is formulated for all activities. Plus, it’s great for the whole family. Our formula combines critical sun protection factors with appealing cosmetic benefits:
√ Goes on sheer to semi-sheer
√ Does not irritate eyes
√ Fast absorbing

See video of how to properly apply our organic sunscreen. Please dab small amounts on to skin and take the time to thoroughly blend the product into the skin. This product does take a a minute or two longer to apply then our other products due to the organic formulation. A little goes a long way! When blended, sheer coverage can be achieved for most skin tones.
See video below of how NOT to apply our organic sunscreen. Please DO NOT use large amounts in one area, and hope to "blend" it all in. It will be very difficult to blend in all of the sunscreen and get sheer results. Dab small amounts on to skin and take the time to thoroughly blend the product into the skin. Keep in mind all mineral based organic sunscreens are going to take longer to apply, blend in, and will not be 100% clear.
