ORGANIC, ALOE VERA LEAF JUICE Rich in numerous antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins A & C to promote firmness and reverse dehydration. Aloe also contains Auxin & Gibberellins; two hormones that promote wound healing and reduce skin inflammation.
ORGANIC SHEA BUTTER High in fatty acids oleic, stearic & linoleic, which aid in the skin's natural collagen production and protect & nourish it to prevent drying. If used over time, shea butter can improve fine lines and actually strengthen and enhance the elasticity of the skin.
NON-NANO, UNCOATED, PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE ZINC-OXIDE an essential micro-nutrient, every cell in our body needs zinc for cellular function. Zinc promotes the synthesis of collagen while protecting the skin from UVA & UVB rays, by reflecting those rays away from the skin (traditional, chemical based sun blocks absorb the sun’s rays). Zinc is also anti-bacterial and can aid in the control of acne and inflammation.
Chemical blocks (oxybenzone & octinoxate) absorb the energy from the sun's rays and disperse it into the skin. This is why your skin feels hot and tight and why you can't wait to wash off when you come inside. Plus, chemical blocks are not always photostable - the sun breaks them down and they become less effective. That's why you have to keep reapplying.
Mineral blocks reflect the sun's rays off your skin, so you don't get that tight, hot feeling. Zinc oxide is the mineral we use and most mineral blocks are photostable and aren't broken down by the sun.
DIRECTIONS :: Apply all over before exposing skin to the sun. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or excessive sweating and after towel drying. Reapply at the least every 2 hours.
