Surfpaste Tinted Sunscreen SPF30+ contains an amazing amount of certified organic ingredients which are extremely beneficial for your skin while helping to prevent sun damage.
Certified Organic Avocado Oil - Nutrient rich avocado oil contains beta-carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E, which provides deep hydration and improves the texture and elasticity of dry, damaged skin. Also providing protection for your skin from the suns damaging UV rays.
Certified Organic Cocao Seed Butter - Cocao butter is high in antioxidants which help fight off free radical damage to the skin, such as skin aging, dark patches, and even dull skin. Protecting your skin from free radical damage is a must if you want healthy, younger looking skin. Cocoa butter is also high in fatty acids, which help waterproof, hydrate and nourish the skin deeply.
Certified Organic Jojoba Oil - Jojoba naturally contains a balance of vitamins A, D and E, which are known as skin healing vitamins. Jojoba also contains powerful antioxidant properties able to penetrate down to the skin matrix level, protecting against accelerated aging by providing suppleness and moisture.
Certified Organic Shea Butter - This skin super food comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree, which is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. Shea butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair.
Certified Organic Cacao Powder - Applying raw cacao to your skin offers a lot of the same benefits as eating it. The high levels of antioxidants protect and repair the skin from damage and premature aging. As a potent anti-inflammatory, it soothes redness and blemishes, improving the skin’s complexion.
Vitamin E - Apart from Vitamin E having antioxidant properties, it also helps to moisturise the skin and even more importantly helps with tissue repair, thereby keeping the skin in good condition. Containing one of the best fat (lipid) based antioxidants, Vitamin E has proven to be effective in reducing sun-induced skin wrinkling. Vitamin E is also required for healthy collagen – which is the support system in the skin and helps the skin to remain firm and healthy.
Certified Organic Castor Oil - Castor Oil has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin, helping to promote the production of elastin and collagen, which help delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and also give the skin a more youthful appearance. Castor Oil also acts as a natural moisturiser for anyone suffering from dry skin, and is nutrient rich in vitamins and minerals.
Certified Organic Carnauba Wax - When used in cosmetics, Carnauba Wax gives the product a smooth application and glossy finish. It also helps to keep the product in a pliable, yet solid, form.
Zinc Oxide (Non Nano) 38% - Zinc Oxide is a physical sunscreen which sits on your skin forming a barrier to protect you from harmful UVA/UVB rays.
ZINC OXIDE IS MORE THAN JUST A SUNSCREEN
Zinc oxide is especially beneficial for those of us with sensitive skin. If you struggle with sensitive or acne-prone skin, the zinc oxide in Surfpaste helps to soothe the inflammation of acne and may reduce sebum production.
Zinc Oxide is Non - Comedogenic, Non - Irritating and Non - Allergenic
Iron Oxides - Colour pigments.
