It took quite some time and research, but Amazinc have developed a combination of common minerals that are surprisingly efficient as UV filters and have good attributes when it is applied to skin. We are proud to present the Amazinc Mineral Shield! a mixture of Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Oxide and Lanolin.
Zinc Oxide – White or slightly yellow amorphous powder, it is found within calamine ore. Zinc oxide is used in Amazinc’s sunblock as an active compound which provides mineral UV filter for the skin. Zinc oxide is even used to cure certain skin irritations due to its anti-virus capabilities. It is non allergenic and non-toxic.
Kaolin Clay & Magnesium Oxide – Kaolin is a mineral substance which consists of naturally occurring mineral kaolinite and tiny grains of aluminium silicate. Structurally it is a white powder that covers the skin and scatters the UVA & UVB rays. On top of its sun protective attributes, it provides a smoothing agent. Magnesium oxide is white or slightly yellow amorphous powder, it is found within calamine ore.
Beeswax – Amazinc use beeswax as a natural stabiliser which helps create a consistent and water repellent layer on the top of the skin. Beeswax has natural antibacterial properties while helping to lock in moisture and protect the skin. People with allergies to bee products could potentially develop hyper sensitivity of the skin where the product was used.
Lanolin – Naturally produced in sheep’s skin, adeps lanae is a yellowish viscous compound, it helps to protect the wool against drying out. It is an organic compound which is used in Amazinc’s products as natural emulsifier. It enhances durability of the products and help repel water. Under sun and salt water exposure it helps the skin to stay moist and protects against drying out.
Almond Oil – Rich in Vitamin E, almond oil is also great for softening and conditioning the skin and is well suited for an array of challenging skin problems including itchy and severely dry skin. Sweet almond oil is light and penetrates the skin easily. Amazinc’s almond oil is cold pressed from 100% pure almonds and is then winterised. It is light amber in colour and possesses a characteristic nutty aroma.
This Amazinc sunstick is packaged in a reusable and recyclable tin.
Please note there is a plastic disk in the top of the lid, however Amazinc are working on this and are looking into a plastic-free alternative.
The label is made from recycled, non-bleached paper and does not need to be removed before recycling the aluminium tin.

What Is The UVA Rating?
The UVA rating (also known as the star rating) is a measure of how much UVA is blocked. The scale goes from 0 to 5, with a 3- star cream blocking about 60% of the amount of UVA as UVB rays. You would be wanting a sun cream that is at least 4-star. Amazinc sun cream is 5-star.
Can I use Amazinc Suncream On Children?
Yes, all Amazinc ingredients comply with EU regulations for kids. You can use Amazinc from birth, but it is very important to keep reapply sun cream to your children’s skin as it is particularly sensitive.
We always advise to be careful in the sun, especially at the hottest part of the day where the sun is also the strongest.
Please make sure to apply this sunscreen every 2-4 hours. If you have been swimming or sweating quite a bit then reapply to ensure you are protected.
If you feel like your skin is burning or if it feels sore and looks red from sun burn, make sure to cover yourself up to protect your skin from further exposure to the sun.
