SunSessions natural zinc lasts for how long?
Our preference is to prepare small batches on a monthly basis in our boutique size factory. Our ingredients are purchased in small quantities to avoid rancidity and of course waste.
Our boutique factory is under the close supervision of the Israel Health Ministry Authority. And of course we are approved and certified by this Authority.
All our tins are quality controlled, our expiration date is 1 year from opening.
We also take back any unopened stock beyond the 1 year expiry date.
We prefer small and fresh shipments.
Our 50gr | 1.8oz tin can last a few months again depending on your sport and how often you are active.
Our 20gr | 0.7oz tin makes a great gift. They were a hit with the kids at our surf camps, they loved the fun size tins and parents loved the value for size!
SunSessions natural zinc size, quantity, and usage...
We had a few choices when we finally selected our tin container based
on these advantages.
No PLASTIC tube – how could we even consider it! Our ocean and marine life are suffocating and dying from plastic waste, we cannot add to this environmental disaster
50gr | 1.8oz – Perfect carry on weight, to leave in your car, to share with your friends!
20gr | 0.7oz – Ideal to place in your board short pocket, ski jacket pocket, windsurf harness or a number of other small useful places while out there
The tin allows you to dig in and take out the amount you need with your fingers.
The tin wont spill open like those plastic tubes
So how long does it stay on?
We say if you can see it then its working. People do have a tendency to wipe their faces from sweat or saltwater so just re-apply if necessary. We do suggest however if you plan on being out in the water for several hours, do apply a generous layer on your face and lips.
Removing our paste is up to you!!
Why – because of the super antioxidant oils, raw cacao powder and the healing effects of the non nano zinc oxide, our paste acts like an amazing facial mask treatment. In addition to the protective properties this “skin food” mask nourishes, hydrates and replenishes your skin during and after your outdoor activity.
In any case remove with any organic cold pressed oil like our jojoba oil or coconut oil.
A compostable organic wipe works just as well.
why does the zinc harden in the cold?
Well we know that organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, pure cacao butter and natural beeswax all harden at cold temperatures – this is how we know they are pure!
So no need to worry, open your tin, dig in a little and move the zinc in circular motion for 30 seconds this will soften up the paste and ready for smooth application.
Just a small effort for the worthwhile effect.
Like all truly natural products or fresh ingredients storage is simple – keep at room temperature or in a cool environment when not in use.
