We love the Sun. It is believed that limited, smart exposure is actually pretty good for the skin, body and mind. Covering the skin is always your best option if you desire protection.
This mineral based SPF 15 Sun Balm can offer your lips some extra protection. It glides on silky smooth *(and virtually clear) like Hurraw regular balms but it is formulated to be extra thick and creamy for longer staying power while out in those shining rays!
Red raspberry seed oil: Exceptionally high in tocopherols, this lovely oil nourishes, is anti-inflammatory and may help in the absorbance of the Sun's rays.
Juicy tangerine with hints of vanilla...the unique scent of roman chamomile lends a calming note. Packed full of amazing cold pressed oils to moisturize and protect.
Sea buckthorn seed oil: Super rich and off the charts in essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols, and phytosterols..
Pomegranate seed oil: Deeply penetrating and an anti-oxidant powerhouse.
Here's the deal with Zinc Oxide. Hurraw use non-nano zinc oxide in this Sun Balm. Zinc oxide is the only all natural, broad spectrum (blocks both UVA and UVB) sun screen available today. As of 2019, zinc oxide is one of only two GRASE (Generally Recognized As Safe and Effective) ingredients for sun protection. The other is titanium dioxide but there are some not so great issues with ingesting titanium dioxide. Thumbs up FDA for safer consumer protections and regulations! Now, please enforce them -- *crickets*
Zinc oxide is a mineral. It protects your lips by sitting on top of them and thus, provides a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. It actually deflects the rays away from the skin to prevent any harm. For adequate protection it must be applied often.
SPF 15 means that your skin is protected 15x's 'longer' than without the SPF 15 product. If you have very fair skin, perhaps the Sun makes you 'pink' in just 3 minutes. Therefore, an SPF 15 product would grant you a safer 45 minutes in the Sun... HOWEVER, there are many factors to sun exposure: Time of day? Cloud cover? Eclipse? Are you on the water (or snow) where Sun rays are more concentrated? At a high altitude where you are literally closer to the Sun? Be Sun Smart. Listen to your body. Listen to the Sun. Wear big brimmed hats.
*Just a few swipes of Sun Balm are needed for protection, many swipes will indeed give your lips a extra white tint, which is fine too. Be sure to apply it often for protection and to keep that physical zinc barrier present.
*Due to the herbal extracts and zinc (mineral) constitutions used in the Sun Balm, variations in color may occur and is normal.
