Brand New for 2020 and it's a firm favourite with us at Vera-Bee, we are very excited to stock Amazinc's Raspberry Butter Sunscreen SPF15+.

The Raspberry Butter SPF15 has two functions it combines sun protection and skincare. The Mixture of Tamanu, Marula and Raspberry Kernel Oil provides an essential, but effective sun protection, while Shea butter and the rest of the formula strengthens, restores the skin and prevents it from ageing.

Amazinc Raspberry Butter is a buttery balm moisturiser that is not only protecting the skin against the sun but also providing deep hydration whilst smelling absolutely incredible. A body butter with SPF15, if you prefer an oil-based suncreen, this is the one for you. It makes it so easy & quick to apply!

 

Plastic-Free Sunscreen

Amazinc have developed the World's first natural, vegan and plastic-free sunscreen! It's water-resistant too! This gorgeous SPF butter is super-moisturising and offers protection against UVA and UVB rays. This is an oil like balm that leaves your skin super hydrated! Even better, it's safe for marine life, corals and wildlife. Unlike chemical-containing commercial sun creams which are harmful to our fishy friends.

3* Star UV Rating - The UVA rating (also known as the star rating) is a measure of how much UVA is blocked. The scale goes from 0 to 5, with a 3- star cream blocking about 60% of the amount of UVA as UVB rays. Amazinc Raspberry Butter SPF15 sun cream is 3-star. The Amazinc SPF 30 & 50 are both 5-star.

Better yet, this Mineral Butter Sunscreen is completely plastic free and comes packaged in a 100% recyclable and reusable aluminium tin - 150ml. It's the perfect size to pop in our bag wherever you're heading and this sturdy little tub will take a lot of battering.

100% Mineral Filters & Natural Ingredients

If you're like us, you want to know exactly what you are putting on yours and your family's skin and into your environment. Amazinc!'s Mineral Sunscreen contains only:

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Avena Sativa Kernel (Oat) Flour, Avena Sativa Kernel (Oat) Oil, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed (Tamanu) Oil, Rubus Idaeus Seed (Raspberry) Oil, Scelerocarya Birrea Seed (Marula) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed (Jojoba) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, (Lavender), Rosmarinus Officinalis Flower (Rosemary) Oil, Jasminum Officinale Oil 

 

Almond Oil

Softening and conditioning, almond oil helps an array of challenging skin problems including itchy and severely dry skin. It is light and penetrates the skin easily. AmaZinc! cold-prep their oil from 100% pure almonds before winterising it. Light amber in colour, it possesses a characteristic nutty aroma. 

 

Jojoba Oil

Very similar in composition to the protective layer of the human skin, jojoba oil is skin friendly, easily absorbed and therefore suitable for all skin types. Jojoba has anti-inflammatory properties and you can use it on a variety of skin conditions including skin infections, skin ageing and is great for healing wounds.

  

Mineral Shield LIGHT (Zinc oxide – NON NANO, Magnesium oxide)

Amazinc! have used NON NANO zinc oxide in their sunblock as an active compound which provides mineral UV filters for the skin. NON NANO zinc oxide is very different to the NANO particles used in commercial sunscreens. NON NANO zinc oxide has been shown to cause no harm to marine and coral life whilst NANO zinc oxide poses a risk to both. Zinc oxide is even used to cure certain skin irritations due to its anti-virus capabilities, and it is both non-allergenic and non-toxic.

 

Hydrogenated Almond Oil

This has the same benefits as almond oil and because its hydrogenated, it has a smooth, soft and buttery feel like shea butter.

 

Rosmarinus Officialis Leaf Oil

Rosemary Oil can help protect skin cells from the damage caused to them by the sun and free radicals. 

 

Tocopherol/Vitamin E

These provide deep hydration for skin as well as helping the skin to breathe, heal and regenerate wounds and external damage. It is highly recommended for treating any dry skin you may have after sunbathing. It is a natural and non-toxic conservation substance which helps to prolong the shelf time of Amazinc!'s products.

 

Why use a natural mineral sunscreen

Most commercial sun screens use substances that are dangerous for marine life, corals and wildlife in general. We think that it’s silly to poison our playgrounds, our mountains and our oceans with compounds that can harm it forever. Standard chemical sunscreens use substances like oxybenzone, that even in very low concentration harms marine life. They also contain NANO particles of zinc oxide or titanium oxide which aren’t any better. This sunscreen comes in a recyclable aluminium bottle too so you don't have to worry about plastic waste either. Yay!

 

What is oxybenzone and why you should care about it

Oxybenzone is a chemical compound and it is the most common chemical UV filter used in sunscreens today. According to EWG, oxybenzone is found in 80% of chemical sunscreens on the market and it is estimated to be detected in 96% of the American population. EWG rated oxybenzone 8/10 on toxicity rating. Translated to regular English: Oxybenzone is one of the most toxic ingredients in the cosmetic industry. Read more about mineral sunscreen and AmaZinc! here.
