This excellent and handy Sunscreen comes in a tin (no plastic packaging), works efficiently and is made in the Hawkes Bay.
After much research and deliberation, Millstream Gardens started making sunscreen using a product called Zinclear as the foundation. This is a dispersion of Zinc Oxide nanoparticles in the Coco Caprylate/Caprate which are all naturally occurring ingredients and have ECO Cert and Natural Products certification. Initial testing confirms that the SPF is over 30 and that the product meets both Critical Wavelength and UVAPF & UVAPF/SPF requirements.
Zinc Oxide is a broad-spectrum UV blocker, the cream base & plant extracts enhance the SPF and helps protect your skin from sun damage. It has a very earthy (non-chemical) smell.
