Ultra Sheer Zinc Finishing Powder

Information

Why sheer zinc powder?  Well zinc is a lovely, wonderful ingredient- it's really nice to have on your skin.  Yes, it's also an active ingredient in a lot of sunscreens in fact, but we assure you that's merely a coincidence.  

This is 25% Z-cote extra sheer micronized zinc oxide with a particle size of .2 microns , and 25% micronized titanium dioxide with a median size of .2 microns.  They're both pretty sheer, but the particle size is actually considered very large in terms of very tiny things- they're still too big to be absorbed by your skin.   It's still whitening-you may want to tint it with some of your foundation base, or even cut it with a little Perfecting Powder or Blur.

You get 1 tablespoon in a 30-gram jar. Samples are 1/4 teaspoon in a 5-gram jar.

Ingredients:  Mica and magnesium myrsistate, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide

We're not not not saying this will give you any sun protection.  There is no SPF number- it's not something that you can calculate without getting it tested because there are a lot of little things that can effect the rating, and it's not something you can figure out with a simple math problem.  This hasn't been formally tested and it won't be formally tested.  In no way are we suggesting that you should you switch from any other formally tested, FDA approved sun protection product in order to use this.  The only reason we're offering this is because zinc oxide is a wonderful ingredient, and it's a great finishing powder. 

For those of you who are interested in a 100% natural broad spectrum sun screen please check out this article on Wikipedia . The FDA hasn't updated their regulations for sunscreens in decades and a lot of our knowledge about the sun has changed in that time.  It really pays to do your research, and be a smart consumer with sunscreens.
