Why is going 
naturalorganic botanical better?

Good Manufacturing Practice GMP Certified

"Growing consumer awareness of the hazards of synthetic chemicals have fuelled the demand for a healthier life style and for organic personal care products (PCP)." [1]

"Presently revitalization and renewed interest on traditional medicinal plants has been observed among the public and scientific community." [2]

 

"The WHO estimates that, at present, more than 80% of the world’s population relies on traditional healing modalities and herbals for primary health care and wellness. Several developed countries have a major proportion of the population that uses traditional practice of health, especially medicinal plants, and have taken steps to preserve its popularity for historical and cultural reasons." [2]

“The cosmetic industry uses many barely-regulated chemical substances in cosmetic products, of which a significant number are associated with endocrine disruption.” [4]

“It is recognized that cosmetics constitute a significant part of our exposure to chemicals.” [4]

"Cosmetic formulations have been based on botanical ingredients since ancient times, and botanical and natural extracts maintain a major role in contemporary cosmetics." [3]

"...Scientific research continues to corroborate traditional uses of many plants for skin benefits" [3]

Ingredients found in our sunscreens are all vegan

Why go vegan?

VegeCert Certified Vegan

“It is now obvious that consumers are increasingly aware of animal welfare in their daily choices” [5]

"The ethical consumers in this study were by and large highly conscious and critical thinkers who questioned the social, economic and cultural norms of the dominant culture." [6]

"The consumption of animal products exposes humans to saturated fat, cholesterol, lactose, estrogens, and pathogenic microorganisms..." [7]

What is zinc good for?

Our products only use natural vegan grade ZinClear Zinc Oxide

"Zinc is an essential element in all living organisms." [8]

"Zinc (Zn) plays a substantial role in many biological processes and is an essential trace element for proper growth and reproduction of plants, and health of animals and humans..." [9]

"According to the WHO, zinc deficiency is currently the fifth leading cause of mortality and morbidity in developing countries. It is estimated that it affects about one-third of the world’s population." [10]

Sunscreen ingredients to avoid?

VeganicSKN uses only FDA GRASE (Generally Recognised as Safe and Effective) UV filters

"Although chemical sunscreens are far more commonly used because of their more cosmetically pleasing characteristics, they provide inferior UV protection as compared with physical filters" [11]

"Microfine zinc oxide is superior to microfine titanium dioxide as a sunscreen ingredient." [12]

"The results show that long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) filters -- including avobenzone, oxybenzone, and octocrylene -- is lethal for some organisms living in freshwater environments." [13]

Does sunscreen cause cancer?

VeganicSKN uses only FDA GRASE (Generally Recognised as Safe and Effective) UV filters

"ZnO displayed no carcinogenic potential..." [14]

"...the use of ZnO in sunscreen is safe." [14]

"While biologically relevant, this discovery may contribute to our understanding and exploration of zinc in relation to autophagy as a means of controlling melanoma growth and survival." [15]

"...a survey of 1000 Australians from 18 to over 76 years old, commissioned by Cancer Council, found that nearly half of respondents believed that sunscreen contained chemicals that were bad for you and could even cause cancer." [16]

Is sunscreen toxic?

"...ZinClear products are considered to be non-nano"

"Recent studies on acute, sub-acute, and chronic toxicities of ZnO indicated that this compound is virtually non-toxic in animal models." [17]

"...repeated application of ZnO-NPs to the skin, as used in global sunscreen products, appears to be safe, with no evidence of ZnO-NP penetration into the viable epidermis nor toxicity in the underlying viable epidermis." [18]

"A major weakness of some chemical filters is their tendency to degrade after UV exposure. They convert to isomers, tautomers or dimers. If these chemicals stay inside the skin, they are no longer protecting against UV exposure and can cause toxicity to cells." [19] 

Does sunscreen expire?

"Zinc oxide (ZnO) appears as a promising preservative for pharmaceutical or cosmetic formulations" [20]

"The addition of ZnO in complex formulations significantly improved the microbiological quality of the products, in spite of the presence of other ingredients that modulate the antimicrobial activity" [20]

"Benzophenone Accumulates over Time from the Degradation of Octocrylene in Commercial Sunscreen Products" [21]

"Benzophenone is a mutagen, carcinogen, and endocrine disruptor" [21]
