Why a Zinc Cream?
Zinc oxide is an odorless white powder that naturally occurs in the mineral zincite. It is insoluble in water providing a number of practical uses. Commonly used in foods, first-aid tapes, pigments and personal products. The perfect ingredient for a natural sun block and known to have soothing effects widely used against skin irritations. Often one of the key active ingredients in many baby powders and nappy rash creams. Zinc oxide forms a protective barrier on the skin. It helps treat and prevent various skin conditions including nappy rash, insect bites, and minor skin irritations.
What about an SPF rating?
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) regulates sunscreens in Australia. To obtain an SPF rating sunscreens must be manufactured in a TGA recognised factory. As our Zinc Cream is handmade there are no therapeutic claims made or intended for this product.
Note: Should you have sensitive skin please try a patch test first. Please discontinue use if you experience discomfort or other indications that the product may not be appropriate for you.
