Sintra Naturals

Vegan Sunscreen SPF 50


Our outdoor skin care range is launched in collaboration with helm wind who specialise in sports skin care .

Our sunscreen is UK lab tested to achieve SPF 50 which is made possible in combination of the natural sun protection ingredients like red raspberry seed oil and non nano zinc oxide .

Our non nano zinc oxide(zinc xp) is specially developed for uniform dispersion of the zinc particles where normal zinc oxide can form clusters when stored and cannot give uniform sunscreen coverage .We have explored several zinc oxide products and we only use eco cert ingredients so we choose zinc xp which is an amazing product developed in Australia and approved by the Australian cosmetic authorities who have the strictest rules in the world when it comes to sunscreen.

We combined the zinc oxide with natural omega rich butter shea which helps the dispersion of the zinc oxide easy and stable even in high temperatures as when shea melts in high temperatures it self emulsifies with zinc oxide making it even dispersion time after time.

Our sunscreen is coral reef safe and does not leak any harmful ingredients into our marine systems as sunscreens are the major pollutants which are killing and making our coral reefs sterile. 

Jojoba Oil | contains vitamin E and is a similar composition to sebum, the oil naturally produced by our skin. Jojoba oil can help to regulate sebum production because it is close to the sebum that your body produces naturally, this can help the skin from looking oily and can help to prevent acne caused by clogged pores.

ZincClearXP  | is ECOCERT certified. It is a chemical-free, 100% mineral that provides protection against UVA and UVB rays. It has a light and pleasant feel to it and is suitable for sensitive skin.

Our Facial Barrier Cream SPF 50 is not only tested rigorously by ourselves in the mountains but by chemists here in the UK who certify our product to UK cosmetic standards.

Benefits of using Zinc oxide sunscreens :

Zinc Oxide is the superior choice for formulating a Coral reef-safe sunscreen product.

Not all “mineral” sunscreens are the same: titanium oxide
Avoiding a chemical sunscreen may not prevent exposure to ingredients in some mineral sunscreens that have been questioned as a possible concern. Titanium dioxide, for instance, is an effective mineral barrier, but when it is in the form of nano particles, it has been classified as a possible carcinogen by the Risk Assessment Committee of the European Chemicals Agency (ACHA). While the liquid form in sunscreens may or may not relate to this carcinogenicity, the cancer risk identified from inhaling titanium oxide should give you pause before using it, because sunscreen is—everywhere—used on and around the face.

Directions of use:
Apply generously and evenly before sun and weather exposure. Reapply frequently, especially after sweating, swimming or towelling. Avoid contact with eyes. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool place.
