Serious about skin health.
Suntegrity sunscreen products have received a #1 rating eight years running by EWG's Skindeep, a non-profit organisation specialising in research of toxic chemicals and pollution.
The EWG Skindeep database provides an online profile for over 70,000 products, including detailed information on each ingredient and how those ingredients may affect the health of the human body. EWG analyses and rates individual ingredients according to their toxicity. Individual ingredient ratings for a product are combined to find an overall product rating.
Sun care that protects.
We're serious about skin health and sun protection in New Zealand. Our depleting ozone layer means our country has the highest skin cancer rate in the entire world. Sun damage is also the number one cause of the ageing of our skin, with a recent study showing daily sunscreen users aged a full 24% less than occasional wearers. Reason enough not to go a day without it.
For your body, for the planet.
Most sunscreens on the market use chemical UV blockers such as oxybenzone or octinoxate, which researchers have found could be toxic to us, as well as killing coral reefs. All Suntegrity sun care products are made with mineral protection using zinc oxide, a safe and healing mineral which acts like a physical shield and has been used for centuries. It's also better for sensitive skins, lasts longer and protects as soon as it is applied
All Suntegrity sun protection products contain uncoated non-nano zinc oxide to naturally repair, nourish and protect the skin. Zinc oxide acts as a shield to physically protect our skin from the sun, unlike chemical absorbers (used in many generic sunscreens) which work by using a chemical reaction to absorb the sun’s rays, converting them to heat.
Zinc oxide is perfect for even the most sensitive skins, and is one of the few UV blockers safe for baby products. Suntegrity is free of nasties! It has NO chemical UV absorbers (ingredients which are linked to endocrine disruption and cancer), NO titanium dioxide (a trace mineral that may become toxic in large amounts), and NO nano-particles (which can penetrate the bloodstream).
Suntegrity sunscreen is Broad Spectrum SPF 30 coverage to protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Most dermatologists recommend SPF 30 rather than higher SPFs due to the extra (potentially harmful) chemicals needed to increase the SPF count. Suntegrity products are also clinically and allergy tested to ensure they contain no irritating ingredients.
Yes! All Suntegrity products feature organic ingredients such as Aloe Vera juice, Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil, Cucumber Extract, Green Tea Extract and Pomegranate Oil to provide the skin with a dose of nutrition, plus Hyaluronic Acid to help skin retain moisture and a healthy glow. Suntegrity face products are also specially formulated with Astaxanthin (an excellent free-radical scavenger) and Red Algae to help neutralise irregular skin pigments.
The Suntegrity ethos revolves around clean beauty and natural protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays, combined with the use of beauty-boosting ingredients to promote the long term health of your skin and body. Top rated and clinically tested, all Suntegrity products are developed and produced in the USA, where the process can be closely monitored, ensuring Suntegrity's high standards are maintained.
Suntegrity is all about creating a positive impact on the environment, customers and communities, and is passionate about cancer prevention. All of the products are PETA and Leaping Bunny Certified. Great for the animal-loving community.
