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 it 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 a 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 use on the body?
Aloha Sun Stick is designed to protect your face’s sensitive areas like the 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 the case of white fabrics. For the whole body, it is best to use Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) Sunwear instead of sunscreen whenever you can. Sometimes even a simple T-shirt will do.
4. How to use the Aloha Sun Stick to have the best protection?
Aloha Sun Stick is a fully mineral-based sunscreen. It means it does not contains any chemical filters that penetrate into your skin, just the mineral particles that cover your skin (stay on the surface) and reflect the UV rays. To achieve the SPF50+ protection, you need to put a thick layer. Do not rub the cream in – it will not absorb. It needs to be visible and not see-through. If you can see the skin colour from inside the stick, it means you have not enough cream on your face. Aloha Sun Stick is water-resistant cannot be washed out with water. But, if, during the sports, you have rubbed your face with long hair/hands/sleeve and you see that the coating has disappeared – please put some more cream on:)
5. Is this product homemade or lab-made?
It’s manufactured in the certified cosmetics lab with respect to GMP ( Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines. Using Aloha Sun Stick you can be certain that your sunscreen is of the highest quality.
6. Is it certified for the sun protection factor?
Despite we take the whole development and production of Aloha Sun Stick very personally, we also stick to the highest standards and strict European regulations. The cosmetic formulation (cream) was laboratory tested and certified for its SPF 50+ and high water resistance, additionally, it was tested dermatologically (on sensitive skin) and it’s officially confirmed to be vegan. It has gone through both in-vivo and in-vitro testing for the SPF factor, and the outcome was about SPF 61.
7. I have sensitive skin – can I use it?
Although our Aloha Sun Stick was tested for sensitive skin use (and in the results, it did not cause any irritation) every skin is different. We recommend testing the cream on the wrist before the first use. It contains raspberry seed oil, so for people allergic to raspberries, this cream could be irritating. Also, the mineral UV filters and mineral pigments may cause allergic reactions for people allergic to nickel, aluminium, titanium, iron. For example, the colour pigments are iron oxides. If you have highly sensitive skin we recommend choosing the white colour, but again – please read the INCI ingredients list carefully and check it accordingly to your allergies.
