Frequently Asked Questions
Why is zinc oxide the best UV filter?
We use zinc oxide as our only active ingredient, and here is why:
+ It is the only reef-safe UV filter available.
+ Zinc oxide provides excellent broad spectrum sun protection and has several advantages over synthetic actives. Zinc particles sit on top of your skin and act as a reflective barrier (exactly like a mirror) to block both UVAs & UVBs from penetrating your skin and causing damage and ageing.
+ It is the only FDA* and TGA** approved broad spectrum sun protection ingredient, and unlike any other active ingredient, its concentration in a product has no limitation. It is also the EWG (Environmental Working Group) nº1 ingredient for sun protection.
+ Zinc oxide is also effective for healing the skin. It can be used to heal wounds, reduce the tenderness associated with sunburns and soften chapped skin. It is sometimes used as an acne treatment - it is believed to reduce the appearance of blemishes and reduce skin irritation and inflammation, reducing the number and severity of acne breakouts.

How does SPF50+ differ from SPF30?
No sunscreen actually blocks 100% of UV rays. SPF50+ sunscreens offer similar levels of UVB protection as SPF30 sunscreens but offer extra UVA protection. SPF50+ sunscreens allow 1/50th of ambient UV radiation through but filter out 98% of UVB radiation. SPF30 sunscreens admit 1/30th of ambient UV radiation, but block out 96.7% UVB.
How much sunscreen should I apply? And how often?
How much: 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.
How often: Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before sun exposure (the best is to apply it at home before going out in the sun), and reapply every 2 hours or more after swimming, sweating and towel drying.
