As we welcome summer to the UAE, we have to be well-prepared with an army of skin products that protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Applying sunscreen and sunblock daily is a must, whether it is summer or not, however, especially during Dubai summers as the sun can be extra harsh on our skin during the day.
Remember that you have to apply sunscreen even if you work indoors to make sure you are protected in case you step out in the sun for any reason. Additionally, even indoors the sun shines through windows and it is best that you take the right precautions to avoid harming your skin.
If you are environmentally conscious as well, then you probably know that most commercial sunscreens use substances that are dangerous for marine life, corals, and wildlife in general. So while we seek to protect our bodies from harm, we should also be aware of the harm we can subject the ecosystems around us.
Standard chemical sunscreens use substances like oxybenzone, that even in very low concentrations harms marine life. According to EWG, oxybenzone is found in 80% of chemical sunscreens on the market and it is estimated to be detected in 96% of the American population. EWG rated oxybenzone 8/10 on toxicity rating.
It is proven that up to 25% of sunscreen is washed off the skin within the first 20 min after application. But washing off is not the only way how oxybenzone gets into the environment; in tests traces of the chemical were detected in the user’s urine within 30 minutes after application. The chemical then easily passes through modern sewage treatment systems and enters the sea.
With all that in mind, we were determined to find the right brand that stays away from any harmful substances in their sunscreens, sunblocks, tanning oils, and any other skin products. That is when we found Amazinc Skincare, who have successfully implemented new technology in the field of mineral UV protection: Clear Zinc-Undetected Zinc-Viewless ZinCare.
Safe UV filters provide cosmetics with protection against photo-aging and other benefits of zinc oxide, such as anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties. It goes without saying that it is non-nano and uncoated. Zinc oxide products are specifically tailored to deliver distinct UVA/UVB protection and transparency levels while being:
Using that research, Amazinc created an array of skincare products that are beneficial to our skin and do not harm the environment in any way. Check out this impressive line of products and scroll down for more information on each one.
