Brand New to 2020! the first ever vegan body butter with an SPF15 that comes in a completely plastic free aluminium tin! It’s already ticking all the right boxes but there’s so much more….
I’ve been using the body butter for a few weeks as an everyday body moisturiser. The creamy, buttery texture allows easy application and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft without a greasy residue. Blocking out 93% of harmful UV rays, it gives me piece of mind my skin is protected without harming the planet.
My top rated ingredients and benefits,
Raspberry kernal oil, a favourite for suncreens due to its ability to naturally absorbs UV rays whilst hydrating skin and preventing anti ageing.
Marula oil, derived from the marula tree, an easy way to improve the skin’s resistance to weather and external aggressors.
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.
