At SunSessions we asked ourselves the true question: If we invested in the best natural ingredients to craft our zinc paste, would the customer care?
Well, to our delight today's health conscious customer seeks out the best possible product on the market based on their principles. Our customers are mindful to the environment, animals and resources.
Our story is simple. We are a surf family of 4, mom, dad, girl, boy.
We travel the world to surf. Over the years we've exposed ourselves to all the harsh outdoor elements - wind, sun, cold, heat and thus endured Mother Natures forces. We understood that in order to be active outdoors we needed a clean, effective and resilient product that would safeguard our exposed skin from sunburn, windburn, frostbite, dryness BUT also soothe, hydrate and replenish -
1 product that would serve us as an all in 1.
In our small country we experience all seasons and all weather types, from skiing up in the northern mountains, to surfing, sailing, windsurfing or swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, or cycling, running and trekking our barren deserts. We did our research, we contacted our local resources, farmers, chemists, environmentalists, and even vegans.
Our goal was to produce a physical mineral UVB/UVA skin barrier made to stick for long hours outdoors while enjoying our sporty lifestyle.
Our conscious is finally clear. We crafted a skin protector using local and wholesome ingredients that we would use, our kids would use and be proud to have our friends use.
We now would like to share our SunSessions natural zinc paste with you.
We have used only the finest plant based organic and natural ingredients because we truly believe that Mother Natures does provide the most effective skin care solutions.

Zinc and zinc compounds play an important role in human health. Zinc deficiency can manifest itself in many ways including growth retardation, decreased immune function, skin disturbances, gastrointestinal dysfunction and various blood disorders.
Zinc oxide has been used as a derma to therapeutic agent for hundreds of years, first as a component of calamine and then on its own in various preparations.
Zinc containing compounds are a great benefit to humans. Some zinc containing compounds are well known antimicrobials. Zinc Oxide is also very beneficial as a sunscreen or sun barrier.
Zinc oxide today is widely used as a topical therapeutic medication. It may well be the most commonly used topically applied drug of all time.
Zinc Oxide as a sunscreen:
The solar spectrum is divided into various wavelengths which are measured in nanometers. Our interest is in ultraviolet Radiation or UVR, which is credited with the most biologically significant consequence of sunexposed conditions like sunburn and skin cancer.
UVR is divided into UVC /UVB /UVA
UVC – very toxic (carcinogenic) however virtually all filtered out by the ozone layer.
UVB – makes about 18% of the solar UV spectrum – the immediate sunburn.
UVA – makes about 75% of the solar UV spectrum – this is photaging (skin ageing, yellowing of the skin, loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, and melanoma).
NonNano Zinc Oxide this inorganic mineral is NOT absorbed by the skin. (nano zinc oxide is absorbed due to its nano particles) Because of its Non Nano state, this zinc oxide should not cause any adverse reactions to the skin such as allergies or irritation.
Harvested in the southern desert of Israel. Non-greasy texture, light weight.
The anti-inflammatory ingredient – myristic acid makes a beneficial treatment for both rheumatism and arthritis. Treats skin infections due to its antibacterial properties may improve and relieve psoriasis, chapped skin, sunburn, eczema and baby diaper rash.
Jojoba is essential because of its ability to provide long-lasting moisture. Jojoba is also excellent for soothing inflamed skin due to a combination of vitamins A, D and E, which provide both anti-inflammatory and healing benefits. Fosters optimum wellness!
Although jojoba oil is generally categorized with vegetable oils, jojoba is actually a liquid wax. Organic jojoba offers the traits of both oil and a wax to make it an ideal ingredient in balm and lotions. It is highly penetrating and closely resembles the natural sebum within our skin. Jojoba is used in facial blends to remove excess oils and to help balance the skins natural oil.
It has natural anti oxidant properties and is said to help extend the shelf life of other oils. SunSessions natural zinc utilizes only the highest quality jojoba oil harvested in the Israeli Southern Desert.
