Nice smooth feel on face and stays on in the water!
Hi Amanda, thank you so much for reviewing our Zinc stick Tinted Light. We are thrilled to hear it works for you. Kindly, the people4ocean team.
Zinc sunscreen was recommended to me by surgeon after BCC removed from top of my nose. This product provides excellent sun protection in an easy to apply stick. I have recommended it to my friends who also love the great Australian outdoors. Does not disappoint.
That is wonderful to hear Vicki! Thank you for trusting us with protecting your skin. We truly appreciate you taking the time to write a review.
It's lovely, feels very soft going on. Not super thick but stays on well. I have very pale skin and it's fine on me with a little be of rubbing in.
Thank you so much for this wonderful feedback Ruby! Glad to hear our zinc stick is a win
We gratefully received this as a gift with the normal sunscreen purchase, and I’m so glad we did as we will definitely be buying more of it.
Great zinc stick, easy to apply without getting messy hands and it stays on for a long time
Thanks so much 🙏
Thank YOU Erin! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and are so happy to hear the zinc stick is a win!
Fantastic zinc. Great sun protection without being noticeable.
Your review is much appreciated Jo, we love to hear such great things about our little zinc!
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.
