A personal favorite and one of my proudest creations. This paste containing 25% non-nano Zinc Oxide is effective and very practical. Blended with ingredients long used both traditionally and commercially for their protecting and healing properties. This Zinc Paste can be applied-on heavy to create a barrier that protects the skin from the elements. It can also be thinned out by emulsifying a small amount with a few drops of water and rubbing them together between the palm of both hands. This allows for lighter applications and makes it easier to spread the paste on hairy body parts. For ages, Zinc Oxide has been used in medicinal compounds thanks to its many properties. It is used to treat symptoms related to Ichthyosis, irritated, flaky skin, heat rash, diaper rash, minor abrasions and burns, insect bites, chaffing and especially for its ability to physically block both UVA and UVB solar radiation. Every ingredient in this paste was selected for its skin nourishing properties, provides its own form of skin protection from the elements and has a long historical record of safe and effective use: Non-nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide is blended with Shea Butter*, Coconut Oil*, Jojoba Oil*, Beeswax*, Red Raspberry Seed Oil*, Carrot Seed Oil* (*Organic)
