Zinc Oxide versus chemical UV filters
Many mainstream sunscreens use chemical UV filters to provide protection against UV rays. There are concerns that chemical UV filters may be absorbed into the body through the skin. Natural Instinct Natural Sunscreen uses only naturally sourced Zinc Oxide to provide broad spectrum protection. We have searched the world to find the best Zinc Oxide which complies with both the Australian NICNAS and EU non-nano standards. This means that the Zinc Oxide used in our Natural Sunscreen has a larger particle size compared to other sunscreens that contain transparent (small/nano-particle sized) Zinc Oxide.
Shake before use
Because our sunscreen is a natural formulation with larger particles of zinc oxide, we have created a formulation that must be shaken before use.
SPF 30 versus SPF 50+
In order for Sunscreens to provide SPF 50+ broad spectrum protection, chemical UV filters are needed in the formulation. It is currently not possible for zinc-only sunscreen formulations to achieve SPF50+ protection. The difference between SPF 30 and SPF 50+ is that SPF 30 sunscreens allow 3% of the sun’s rays to get through to the skin compared to 2% getting through with an SPF 50+ product. To achieve an additional reduction of 1% will require the use of chemical UV filters which are not allowed in any of our products. Cancer societies recommend the use of an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. Always make sure though that you apply enough sunscreen and that you reapply every two hours. People can still burn if they don’t use enough sunscreen or if they don’t reapply often enough.
Sunscreen on babies
It is strongly recommended that the primary means of sun protection for children should be hats, clothing, shade and avoiding the sun during the parts of the day when UV levels are at their highest. Our Natural Sunscreen should be the secondary method of protection for young children. For children under 12 months, we recommend avoiding exposure to the sun. If sun exposure cannot be avoided, make sure the child is wearing clothing, a hat and is protected from direct sunlight and apply Natural Instinct Sunscreen to those areas not covered by hats or clothing. Natural Instinct Sunscreen should not be used as the primary means of protecting young children, nor to extend the time that your baby is in the sun.
* Note: The Natural Instinct Natural Sunscreen contains natural beeswax (animal by-product) to achieve its 3 hour water resistance. It is therefore not in line with the Natural Ingredient Standard which excludes animal derivatives and animal by-products.
This is a natural product and requires shaking before use. Apply liberally and evenly onto clean, dry skin 20 minutes prior to sun exposure. Re-apply every 2 hours and especially after swimming, exercise, excessive perspiration or towel drying. Always wear protective clothing including a hat and sunglasses and avoid prolonged sun exposure. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
