Product info

A special blend of minerals to provide durable and strong sun protection. It is gentle on our skin and does not harm nature or wildlife.
Our basic sunscreen is easy to apply and remove, yet highly water resistant. We've perfected the formula with Mineral Shield Compound (Mix of Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Oxide and Kaolin), which provides functional, environmentally friendly and sustainable sun protection. This makes the texture of the sunscreen smoother and easier to apply and remove.
You can use our mineral sunscreen all over the face and lips. No matter how slippery it is, the mineral shield does not wash off, it just stays on the face until you wipe it off with a towel or napkin. So you never have to worry about the amount of sun on your face while surfing.
Ingredients: Almond oil, beeswax, cocoa powder or mineral pigments (depending on color), mineral shield, olive oil, wool fat

Environment

Amazin! was founded by a number of environmentally conscious surfers. They believe that it is foolish to poison their "playground", the mountains and oceans, with substances that can harm it forever. From that thought Amazinc was born! A line of care products that are good for nature.

Oceans make up 2/3 of the planet Earth. They provide millions of people with livelihoods and millions more with essential food. In addition, the Oceans keep the world's environment in balance. Scientists have discovered that the oceans have the ability to absorb CO2, one of the main greenhouse gases produced by humans. Oceans serve us in cleaning our atmosphere of man-made greenhouse gases. Sometimes the coral reefs are referred to as the rainforest of the sea. Although coral reefs extend over less than 1% of the ocean floor, they are home to more than 25% of marine species and also have the ability to absorb CO2. In general, the world's oceans absorb as much CO2 as the rainforest and healthy reefs play a very important role in this.
What is oxybenzone and why you should be concerned.
Oxybenzone is the most common chemical compound used in sunscreen. According to EWG, oxybenzone is found in 80% of chemical sunscreens on the market. EWG rated oxybenzone with a score of 8 out of 10 on the toxicity rating. Translated into understandable English, this means that oxybenzone is one of the most toxic ingredients in the cosmetic industry. Even in very low concentrations, this substance harms marine life.
Oxybenzone mimics human hormones and is increasingly linked to problems such as early puberty, sperm count and hormone-related cancer.
But Oxybenzone is also highly toxic when it comes into contact with marine life and wildlife in general. With up to 15,000 tons of sunscreen washed into the sea at popular beach resorts, Oxybenzone is a GLOBAL environmental problem. In 25% of all sunburns, the cream is washed off within 20 minutes of application. Tests show that the substance passes into your urine within 30 minutes. It then enters the sea via sewage treatment systems.
Oxybenzone causes the bleaching of the reef, which causes the death of the coral. Scientists have proven that a single drop of Oxybenzone has an effect on coral in an area equivalent to 6 Olympic swimming pools. In addition to corals, oxybenzone is also toxic to algae, sea urchins, fish and marine mammals. Both dolphin and human mothers can transmit oxybenzone to their children through breast milk.
Other toxins such as methoxycinnamate and camphor, compounds derived from mineral oil parabens, are used in the cosmetic industry as a preservative. This is not biodegradable and potentially toxic to marine life.
But what alternative is there? Uncoated NANO particles of zinc oxide or titanium oxide are no better. With all this in mind, Amazinc! come to a conclusion; As far as science allows, the bulk form of zinc oxide is currently the safest for the environment.
A current trend in sunscreen products is to convert zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (two UV filter materials) into nano-particles. This ensures long-lasting and colorless sun protection. These nano-particles are very small (1000x smaller than the skin cell) and very different. Due to their small size, they pose dangers to consumer health and the environment. A National Geographic study has shown that exposing sea urchins to nanoparticles leads to negative developments such as the loss of their natural self-defense or even the loss of the ability to eat. The sea urchins in the study were exposed to only very small amounts. That's why Amazinc chooses! committed to making their products nano-free. There is no evidence that regular format zinc oxide causes harm to marine organisms such as fish and coral reefs.
Mineral oil is 'a miracle' and is used in many different industries and products, but Amazinc! believes it has no effect on the skin. Often the cosmetic industry uses oil to preserve their products. Parabens (as the compounds are called) are quite complicated and have not been well researched.
But people often forget that the world's oceans are fragile ecosystems and they should not be mistreated. Overfishing, pollution with plastics and chemicals are all major problems that endanger the oceans. Amazin! has very consciously chosen NOT to be part of this problem.
They want to encourage you to do the same!
