Oils, waxes, butters, and minerals - These are the only ingredients that make up our Sheer Tint Sun Stick. This creamy balm-like formula is completely free of preservatives and designed to protect and nourish all faces. Non-nano Zinc Oxide acts the sole mineral solar-protectant, bouncing sunbeams away from your precious countenance.
Antioxidant-drenched red raspberry seed oil combines with two of our most beloved ingredients — Al Amal Co-operative argan oil and Kpersi Village shea butter — to add a hefty dose of essential fatty acids, vitamins and phytonutrients. The subtle mineral tint blends with all skin tones and is only included to diminish the white cast that is caused when using zinc oxide alone.
A small note for sun-wary individuals: Do not fear the sun, for it is not a villain shining down malice and hateful radiating light. We are not some foreign creatures unfamiliar with its nature. This is our home, our planet, and we are made to live our lives in harmony with the powerful provider that is our Sun. Without it we would be nothing.
So cover up, and don’t soak up direct sunlight during the brightest hours. When you do want to partake in a serving of golden daylight, buff this nourishing creamy sun balm into your skin to stay protected, nourished, and harmonized.
Applying our Sheer Tint Sun Stick is easy. Simply make sure your skin is properly moisturized and hydrated -- our first choice is always an Oil Serum and HydroSoul. You can also use one of our Day Moisturizers, or a little bit of Whipped Shea Butter. It’s important to make sure there is enough product on the skin to leave a slight slip, possibly a little more than you usually apply. Once the skin is infused with ample moisture and hydration, gently glide the Sun Stick over your skin. When applied, blend it in with your fingertips, or -- Evan’s favorite method -- a make up brush. Et Voilà! You’re ready to go, with nourished, protected, luminous skin.
If you find there’s any tugging while you’re smoothing the Sun Stick over your skin, this is likely because your skin, or the ambient temperature is a little cool. To remedy this all you have to do is warm the Sun Stick in the palm of your hand before applying
Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating immediately after towel drying, at least every 2 hours.
