This excellent, and handy Sunscreen comes in a tin (no plastic packaging), lasts forever, works efficiently, is made in the Hawkes Bay and has a very earthy (non-chemical) smell.
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 nano particles in the Coco Caprylate/Caprate which are all naturally occuring 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 help protect your skin from sun damage.
