Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen: Your New, Improved Everyday Must-Have

You asked, we delivered: introducing our new and improved Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30.

Like our beloved original formula, our updated Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 provides instant, weightless broad-spectrum protection without feeling tacky or leaving a chalky residue. We’ve built on those benefits to create a multitasking mineral sunscreen that strengthens the skin’s barrier, brightens and evens skin tone, hydrates, and doubles as a moisturizer and makeup primer – all in a single science-backed formula.

Keep reading to learn more about our newest must-have multitasker.

Why We Reformulated Our Mineral SPF

We’re constantly researching the best ingredients to create the most effective formulas. We saw an opportunity to improve the mineral sunscreen experience and formulated a new, dermatologist tested sunscreen that would work well across all skin types, including sensitive skin.

If you loved our previous sunscreen, you’ll love this one even more! If you had anything less than a favorable experience with our previous sunscreen, we want you to know that we have reformulated and retested to ensure maximum efficacy while being gentle on sensitive skin.

About the Ingredients

Our new and improved formula is dermatologist tested and has been tested or proven to be suitable for sensitive skin.

Our updated formula includes:

  • Zinc Oxide – A natural mineral that physically blocks and reflects UVA/UVB rays.
  • Ectoin – A hydrating molecule that protects skin from external aggressors.
  • Butterfly Ginger Plant - Defends skin from pollution and blue light damage.
  • Sugarcane Derived Squalane – Our superhero hydrator mimics your body’s natural moisture to strengthen the skin barrier and deliver deep hydration.

6 Key Benefits of Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF30

  1. Reef-safe. Exceeds Hawaii’s sunscreen ingredient regulations by using only natural mineral zinc as the active sunblock ingredient.
  2. Broad Spectrum. Zinc physically blocks and reflects both UVA and UVB rays.
  3. No White Cast. Sheer finish melts into every skin tone.
  4. Multi-Protective. Defends skin against pollution and blue light damage, leading to a more even complexion.
  5. Barrier-Boosting. Strengthens and supports the moisture barrier for increased hydration.
  6. Delivers soothing hydration and skincare benefits while priming the skin for makeup. It can be used as a moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup primer all in one!

About Our Packaging

In line with our brand ethos of ocean conservation, our recyclable tube is made with reclaimed ocean plastics. When you’ve used up all of your sunscreen, unscrew the cap on the tube and rinse the remaining product from both the tube and cap. Then replace the cap on the tube and place in your curbside recycling.

Our FSC-certified outer carton can also be recycled with the rest of your recyclable paper products.

How to Use Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen In Your Routine

Apply two finger lengths of our every day as the last step of your skincare routine. Be sure to apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before sun exposure to ensure protection and reapply as necessary. At minimum, you should reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or whenever you towel off after swimming.

Our new, multitasking formula can also simplify your skincare routine by acting as a sunscreen, moisturizer, and a makeup primer all in one. Follow this sample routine for glowing skin all year round:

Step One: Cleanse with Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser

Deep clean skin with our gentle foaming cleanser for visibly refined pores and smoother skin.

Step Two: Hydrate + Firm with Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum

Drench skin in lasting hydration while instantly plumping and visibly improving firmness and elasticity over time.

Step Three: Moisturize, Protect + Prime with Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30

Instantly protect with broad spectrum SPF 30 while moisturizing and priming for a smooth makeup finish.
