Amazinc SPF50 sunblock is the best product I have found on the market for my two young sons. Unlike SPF50 sunscreen, which absorbs into the skin, letting in 2% of UV rays. Sunblock sits on the surface of the skin, giving you immediate protection and blocking out UV rays, you don’t need to wait 20 -30 minutes for your body to absorb the product. Having children you are always cautious about what you are putting on their delicate bodies. My favourite reason for loving this product is you can see exactly where you have applied the product. I always use generously on their noses, under the eyes, cheeks and the tops of their shoulders. Ideal for when they are in and out of swimming pools as it doesn’t wash off. I use Tabitha Eve bamboo reusable wipes with coconut oil to remove. Ideal for children, skiers and surfers.
My top rated ingredients and benefits,
Almond oil, an amazing addition to sunblock by protecting DNA damage from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This will help by preventing sun damage leading to early suns of ageing. Also highly nourishing helping skin feel hydrated.
Mineral shield, a mix of Zinc oxide, Magnesium oxide and Kaolin will sit on the surface of you skin providing full protection from the sun. A natural ingredient, unlikely to upset your skin and cause any irritations.
In 2015 Amazinc was launched by a group of like minded snowboarders and surfers, with a love for the outdoors. With an aim to create a range of high functioning natural sunblock that would be kind on the skin as well as the planet!
Over 80% of commercial sunscreens contain an ingredient called Oxybenzone, a chemical compound to filter UV rays. Alarmingly it has been proven to be one of the most toxic ingredients in the cosmetic world. Imitating hormones found in the human body it is being linked more and more to issues such as low sperm count, early puberty and hormone related cancers.
Not only problematic to humans but also to our marine life! There appears to be two ways Oxybenzone is making its way into our environment. Firstly 25% of our sunscreen is washed off when we enter the ocean for a swim or a surf. Chemical sunscreen is absorbed in to our skin. Recent tests have proven within 30 minutes the chemicals are detected in urine, the chemical passes through sewage systems, then entering seas!
Why is so important to keep chemical pollution out of our oceans? Making up 2/3 of earth our oceans play a very important part in our eco system, they have the ability to soak up CO2, cleaning our atmosphere of greenhouse gases.
