Sunscreen Based On Mineral UV Filters
Safe for the skin – 94% Natural Ingredients
Aloha Sun Stick is formulated mostly with natural ingredients, based on mineral filter titanium dioxide and organic raspberry seed oil. Aloha Sun Stick does not contain any nano-particles, as their influence on the skin has not been tested thoroughly and has been identified as dangerous for the coral reef. No chemical UV filters on board!
Aloha Sun Stick is a sun block that creates a mineral shield, protecting a skin from UV radiation. It works like a mirror – it reflects the radiation and helps in preventing the skin ageing process. The texture is soft for easy application – do not rub it in. The creamy layer needs to stay on the skin surface to make the sun protection work properly!
Water Resistant & Marine Life Friendly
The sunscreen formula is verified as water resistant in the laboratory tests, as well as during our surfing sessions. The ingredients are checked as non-toxic to the aquatic life according to the NOAA guidelines and the Palau & Hawaii Reef Friendly Legislation.
Did you know?
According to the National Ocean Service which is part of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several popular sunscreen ingredients may cause harm to the marine life. That is why the Aloha Sun Stick does not contain any of the following:
- 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor
- 3-Benzylidene camphor
- nano-Titanium dioxide
- nano-Zinc oxide
How sunscreen chemicals enter our environment?
The sunscreen you apply may not stay on your skin – especially when we do water sports, swim, jump in the water, rub our body etc. Also, when we shower, sunscreen may wash off and enter our waterways.
How sunscreen chemicals can affect marine life?
- Green Algae: Can impair growth and photosynthesis.
- Coral: Accumulates in tissues. Can induce bleaching, damage DNA, deform young, and even kill.
- Mussels: Can induce defects in young.
- Sea Urchins: Can damage immune and reproductive systems, and deform young.
- Fish: Can decrease fertility and reproduction, and cause female characteristics in male fish.
- Dolphins: Can accumulate in tissue and be transferred to young.
Aloha Care Story
As frequent travelers we have seen so many beautiful beaches full of plastic waste. We decided to make a step forward and create a sunscreen in plastic-free packaging, based mostly on natural ingredients – healthy for the skin and safe for the environment. Being surfers ourselves we understand the needs of water sports enthusiasts – we aimed to create a product that we would personally enjoy using – water resistant, easy to apply, with strong sun protection and simply fun!
1. Is the paper tube packaging durable/water resistant?
The paper tube is durable enough to keep your sunscreen safe even after some contact with the water. The structure of the tube is made of multiple paper layers pressed together which makes it stiff and resistant to normal usage conditions. You can use with wet hands, it should also survive an accidental drop into the water if you take it out right after – that said we do not encourage you to test how long it will survive;) just try to store it in the dry and shady place.
2. How efficient the Aloha Sun Stick is? How long it will last?
Aloha Sun Stick contains 20 grams of sunscreen which is really a lot (more than most of the similar products on the market)! If you use it for one person it will definitely last for many surfing sessions, depending on how intensively you will use it, from several weeks to a few months. One stick should be sufficient to cover the whole face for about 80 times.
3. Is Aloha Sun Stick suitable for using on the body?
Aloha Sun Stick is designed to protect your face’s sensitive areas like nose and cheeks. Technically it is totally fine to use Aloha Care sunscreen on the rest of your body, however, we would mostly recommend it to cover only local sensitive spots – like tattoos or marks on the skin. Otherwise, it is just not practical for a few reasons. First, the stick applicator is not the best in covering bigger areas of your skin. Second, it can make your clothes dirty, which can be then hard to wash, especially in case of white fabrics. For the whole body, it is best to use Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) sunwear instead of a sunscreen whenever you can. Sometimes even a simple T-shirt will do.
