Summer is just around the corner, and what’s better than being outdoors and enjoying the sun worry-free. We’re excited to announce that we’re launching our NEWEST sun protection product, Zink Lotion 30! This is a zinc-oxide based mineral sunscreen that offers unparalleled protection from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays while reducing the negative impact of the environment. The best part? We use finely milled zinc-oxide that won’t leave a white cast on your skin!
Mineral Sunscreen vs Chemical Sunscreen
While both mineral and chemical sunscreens can provide protection against the sun's harmful UV rays, there are a few key differences between the two. Mineral sunscreen, like Zink Lotion 30, uses natural minerals such as zinc oxide to create a physical barrier on your skin that reflects and scatters the sun's rays. On the other hand, chemical sunscreen uses synthetic compounds to absorb the UV rays and convert them into heat, which is then released from your skin.
A key difference between mineral and chemical sunscreen is their impact on the environment. Chemical sunscreen can harm marine life and coral reefs, while mineral sunscreen is ocean, lake, and river safe. This means that by choosing a mineral sunscreen like Zink Lotion 30, you're not only protecting your skin but also protecting the environment.
Another important difference, especially for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin is that Mineral sunscreen is often a safer option as it contains fewer harsh chemicals that may cause irritation or allergic reactions.
How to use
To use Zink Lotion 30, apply it as a last step in your daytime skincare routine and reapply as needed throughout the day for maximum protection. Use about a quarter-sized amount of your face and gently rub into your skin until fully absorbed.
Zink Lotion 30 is the mineral sun protection you’ve been waiting for. With instant protection, no white cast and a reef-friendly formula. You can find it available now both online and in shop.
