Awesome environmentally friendly product!

Best sun protection product out there not causing further damage to the wildlife and the environment.

In Love!

For very fair skinned folk looking for a tinted sunscreen, this is the only thing I've found that's not too dark or orange. Probably a better match for my skin than any foundation I've tried and I'm absolutely ecstatic to be able to largely replace wearing it with this product that has minimal/healthy/vegan ingredients!

The only downside is the stick can be a little stiff/dry over winter in a colder climate, but applying some rosehip, argan oil etc. first helps gets it moving and can also dilute it if you want less coverage.

Great product

Nice even coverage. Perfect for light skin types. Bonus that it is also sunscreen!

Thank you for your review of our SPF50+ Zinc Stick | Tinted Light. It is a great product, handy for beach and outdoor days and it's great when you don't want that Zinc look! Kindly, the P4O Team.

Great product!

I have very fair skin, I don’t tan I burn and freakle when someone mentions the word sun. I am heavily into skincare that include actives that make your skin more photosensitive
I have been swimming at the beach every morning and put the zinc all over my face, it just looks like heavy foundation I don’t think anyone notices
It has been great at protecting my skin and not undoing all my work with skincare
Thank you!

HI Megan, we are so thrilled that you are enjoying using our Tinted Light Zinc Stick, it really gives great protection and coverage, and it's safe for the ocean as well! The P4O Team.

Questions and Answers

What does reef-safe mean?

Many sunscreens contain ingredients that wash off our skins (or down the drain) to harm coral reefs, even at very small concentrations. Using a "reef safe sunscreen" means that no ingredients in that product will cause detrimental effects to marine life. That includes coral reefs but also marine mammals, turtles, fish and a variety of marine species. Remember that certain brands falsely claim to be "Reef-Safe" but actually contain chemicals harmful to ocean life, so always check the label for these common toxic ingredients: Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Octinoxate, Octocrylene, Parabens, Triclosan.

Is zinc oxide the safe choice?

Zinc oxide provides excellent broad-spectrum protection and has several advantages over chemical actives.

Zinc particles sit on top of your skin and act as a reflective mirror to block UVA, UVB and Blue Light from penetrating your skin and causing damage and ageing.

Zinc oxide is also the only FDA and TGA approved broad-spectrum ingredient, and unlike any other active ingredient, its concentration in a product has no limitation.

How much sunscreen should I apply?

Sunscreen should be the last line of defence after clothing, a hat, shade and sunglasses. Research shows that sunscreens are effective when applied frequently and liberally. The Australian Government Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) recommends at least a teaspoon for each limb, front and back of the body and half a teaspoon for the face, neck and ears every two hours. You should apply one cupped adult hand (30 to 40 ml) of sunscreen for an adult body. When using an aerosol can, remember that some of the sunscreen may not land on your skin. This is also why we don't offer aerosol-type products.

Are Your Zinc Sticks Waterproof?

Our Zinc sticks are tested for 4 hour water-resistance and provide very high protection throughout intensive physical and aquatic conditions. They are virtually water & sweat proof. The packaging however is not, so keep your tube dry and out of direct sunlight.

Do they leave a sticky Residue?

No sticky residue guaranteed! We have specifically formulated our zinc to solve this issue commonly found on the market. All with natural ingredients!

Is the Packaging Compostable?

Our zinc tubes are 100% made of paper and plant-based ink. They are effectively biodegradable and home compostable.

I find it hard to remove my zinc stick after use, is this normal?

Our zinc stick formulation is purposefully designed to withstand time, wetness and repeated rubbing! We recommend using a cleansing cream or oil to remove any last-standing residue.
