The key active ingredient
and why it works
Zinc oxide is safe and the most effective approved active ingredient available for sunscreens at the moment. This mineral provides broad-spectrum protection by sitting on top of the skin creating a physical barrier between the sun and skin. It efficiently scatters and deflects both UVA and UVB rays. As it does not absorb into your skin, zinc oxide is different to any synthetic sunscreen chemicals which are only effective by absorbing into your skin.
As SeaSap is a physical barrier there is no guesswork involved, unlike chemical sunscreens which rub into your skin, leaving no visual indicator as to what areas of your body are protected or need re-application. If you can see SeaSap on your body, then you know it is protecting your skin.
SeaSap contains 26% zinc oxide (non-nano). Zinc oxide is nonirritating, nonallergenic and non-comedogenic.
Simple. Organic. Skinfood.
Zinc oxide is what makes SeaSap work. It is the active mineral that prevents the sun from damaging your skin. For more detailed info see the above 'key ingredient' section.
The dense natural vitamins and fat in Shea Butter make it incredibly nourishing and moisturising. Shea Butter preserves your skin’s natural oils and collagen production. This leads to the prevention of dry skin, inflammation and wrinkle reduction.
Bees wax provides a layer of protection against water, wind and sun, while still allowing the skin to breathe. It also offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-viral benefits. Beeswax is what actually keeps SeaSap on your skin.
We primarily use Cacao powder to give SeaSap its tint, however, it has a few other bonus benefits. It's loaded with antioxidants and other amazing skin-friendly vitamins and minerals. As a result, cacao helps to increase blood flow and promote cellular healing.
Antioxidants are the skin’s defense against free radicals, molecules that become damaged by sun exposure. Olive Oil is packed with antioxidants including vitamin E and A making it a good ointment for healing damaged skin and reversing premature skin aging. Olive Oil is also breathable which allows the skin to function how it’s meant to.
Even our scent ingredient is good for you. Vanilla Extract has antibacterial qualities which are extremely useful in today's age of chemical synthetic overuse. Unlike similar cheap essence, our Vanilla Extract is extracted straight from vanilla beans. We have used it for its pleasant aroma which helps to give SeaSap its unique smell without any artificial additives.
Castor Oil is extremely rich in unsaturated fatty acids (the good one’s), making it perfect for restoring the skin to its natural moisture balance. Castor Oil is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial which makes it ideal for protection and healing. Our Castor Oil is organic and cold pressed keeping it as pure as possible.
Coconut oil is a powerful moisturiser that absorbs quickly and restores dry or flaking skin. It contains Vitamin E, known to protect skin cells from damage over time. Coconut oil is soothing for conditions such as eczema, sunburn and psoriasis.
