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.
