To help protect us from the harsh Australian sun we need to provide a physical barrier between our skin and the sun’s rays. This barrier helps to protect us and prevent sunburn and sun damage, which can cause premature skin ageing, sunspots, and deeper damage at a cellular level.
Sadly studies have shown there are certain UV filters found in many sunscreens are suspected to be contributing to coral reef damage and bleaching. These ingredients include oxybenzone and octinoxate (octyl methoxycinnamate) amongst others.
In order to prevent this from happening we need to be aware of what we are putting on our skin and into our oceans.
Our unique formula is a blend of naturally derived oils which moisturises your skin and lasts longer than water-based products. In conjunction with UVA and UVB-blocker Zinc Oxide, the nourishing formula offers hours of water-resistant protection gentle enough for the the whole family. Being derived from only natural ingredients also means it is ocean friendly, which means it is safe for our marine mammals and underwater ecosystems.
Orenda Skin Australia’s Reef Safe Vegan Zinc is suitable for the face, body, sensitive and baby skin. It is smooth to apply, and helps to nourish the skin whilst offering thorough protection. We recommend reapplying every 2-3 hours, although we have found it lasts all day.
