Ingredients of Hello Sunshine FACESTICK:
Active ingredient: Zinc oxide 245mg/g Other ingredients: Caprilic capric triglyceride, Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa butter), Copernicia prunifera (carnauba) wax, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (candelilla) wax, Tocopherol acetate.
THE GOOD STUFF:
Zinc oxide is a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA & UVB rays. Zinc Oxide is a highly effective active sunscreen ingredient to give broad spectrum protection.
Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis). We use castor oils because of it’s high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids. Castor oil has many powerful benefits on the skin and we use it because of it’s natural protection.
Coconut oil has a natural SPF. Like coconute themselves, coconut oil is rich in essential fats. These essenital fats are thought to keep the skin healthy and rejuvinated. Coconut oil is often used as a moisturiser for the skin. .
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity.
Carnauba wax comes from the leaves of the carnauba palm, a plant that grows in northeastern Brazil. In hot, dry weather, the palm secretes wax to protect its leaves from damage. We use it in our sunscreen for natural skin protection
Simmondsia chinensis oil (jojoba)
Jojoba Oil is known to moisturize, soothe and protect. We love that it’s a light oil brimming with vitamin E.
Is your Facestick preservative free?
Yes. We don’t use any chemical or synthetic preservatives within hello sunshine… and by that we mean Nothing. Zero. None. Nada. Zilch. Zip.
Does your Facestick contain parabens?
Absolutely not. We don’t believe in using parabens within any of our product range. Parabens are possible endocrine disrupters and while they are what gives the Facestick a smooth glide on finish we believe we have been able to achieve this with using naturally based ingredients like silica and fractionated coconut oil.
Does this FACESTICK stain clothes?
It should not stain clothes since it does not contain organic solar absorbers which are renowned for fabric staining. However this is fabric dependent and we encourage you to test this for yourself as we cannot offer guarantees about clothes staining.
Is your FAESTICK nano or non nano?
We have chosen a zinc oxide within our Facestick that is not a nano zinc oxide. However, the Facestick may contain nano particles. To explain, all powders contain nano particles in small amounts, every zinc oxide source will contain low concentrations of sub nano particles, this has always been the case. The zinc oxide that we use is called micronised, this means that it is not predominantly nano. We have chosen the highest quality zinc oxide that we have been able to source for our Facestick.
Is your FACESTICK water resistant?
Yes but as per instructions needs to be re-applied frequently after swimming.
What age can i use the hello sunshine facestick from?
Hello Sunshine Facestick can be used safely from 6+ months.
Is your FACESTICK TGA approved and tested?
Is Hello Sunshine FACESTICK ‘reef friendly?’
There is some scientific evidence that oxybenzone, a sunscreen active, could be contributing to coral bleaching. We don’t use oxybenzone in any of our products.
