It's more than just SPF
UV light consists of both UVA and UVB rays, with both contributing to skin damage caused by sun exposure.
Many chemical UV absorbers provide inadequate UVA protection. SPF ratings only measure protection from UVB, leaving out potential damage from UVA.
Our zinc has been specifically designed to enhance the UVA protection performance and offers market-leading protection across the UV spectrum.
Safe from chemicals
Zinc oxide has a long history in skincare products such as calamine lotion and nappy rash creams, for use on even the most sensitive of skin. It is also the ideal choice for sun protection.
Many common chemical sunscreens have been found to cause damage to coral and ocean life plus free radical damage, endocrine, hormone and DNA disruption in humans.
Ethical Zinc is safe from harmful chemicals and is formulated with certified natural zinc oxide.
Works in the real world
Common chemical based sunscreens might pass tests in the lab, but have been shown to degrade or break down in as little as 30 minutes when exposed to real sunlight, limiting their ability to protect you.
Ethical Zinc's physical zinc oxide barrier keeps working under real world conditions, maintaining very high broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
