Sunsessions Natural Zinc
Our story is simple. We are a surf family of 4, mom, dad, girl, boy. We travel the world to surf mostly. Over the years we've exposed ourselves to all the harsh outdoor elements 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 pigmentation issues, windburn, frostbite, dryness, and chafing 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 skin paste made to stick on our exposed skin for long hours outdoors while enjoying our sporty lifestyle.
Our conscious is finally clear. We crafted a skin care product using ethically traded, local and wholesome ingredients that we would use, our kids would use and be proud to have our friends use.
for the seasons
You may think your skin is safe from the elements once swimsuit season is over but that's not the case. There is another environmental factor to watch out for, that is the wind…
Your skin has an outer layer of molecules called lipids: these keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun, cold, and wind. When the air is cold, your skin contains less moisture and as a result the elements can break down those lipids and harm your skin more easily. The combination of wind friction on an exposed area of the skin and ultraviolet exposure which occurs even on cloudy days - can cause redness and skin irritation commonly known as WINDBURN.
Windburn is especially common among people involved in winter sports such as skiing, skating, high altitude trekking and sailing. Windburn almost always develops during periods of cold, dry, windy weather. Its a symptom of extreme skin dryness and irritation. So apply a thick layer of zinc paste and shea butter lip blam prior to outdoor exposure and help prevent Windburn!
