Back 2 Nature Surf Zinc is a non nano zinc oxide based mineral sun shield. The combination of natural minerals, oils and waxes nourish and protect your skin whilst exposed to the sun and effectively reflect out harmful UVA & UVB rays. The uncoated, non nano zinc oxide acts as a mineral barrier against UV damage, without blocking pores & causing blemishes. The Surf Zinc 'paste' like consistency creates a great water resistancy, made to stay on for long hours, ensuring its all ocean and outdoor adventurer's best friend.
The Surf Zinc is to be applied to the face generously and reapplied when the sun shield’s natural skin tone appears to have faded.
Most sunscreens are extremely harmful to the oceans and your skin due to a variety of chemical ingredients in the products such as oxybenzone, however Surf Zinc contains no chemicals or parabens which may be harmful to the ocean or your skin, ensuring you leave nothing but footprints & respect on our beach’s.

36 out of 40 people would recommend this product01/07/2020, By AliThis is my go-to face sunblock to make use of throughout the year.
It stays on and sticks even if I am in the ocean for hours. Fantastic that it is all natural.
I have tried a few others, but this one just works best.
In Winter it's solid so I have to heat it up with the car air conditioner,
but that's okay :)
26/06/2020, By LiliGreat to find a natural product that stays on and is safe for the ocean!16/06/2020, By JamesonFinally a sunblock that stays on hubbies face while surfing! Well done guys10/05/2020, By Sandesh ElaineBEST SUNSCREEN05/05/2020, By MoniqueThis is by far the best sunscreen I have ever used. Not a big fan of sunscreen in general but fell inlove with this one. stays on for a long time and can double as a light cover up.26/03/2020, By JulieThis product has suddenly become popular. I bought one tub despite it being pricey, because I can see it has good ingredients in it. It works beautifully, so nice not to have a white face and be protected. It does take a while to get it on if its not hot, but it works well. Would definitely recommend. Well done to the manufacturers!16/03/2020, By InaVery good.
I use a mini wooden spoon to get it out, warm it a bit between my fingers, it then applies very easy.24/02/2020, By IdaBlocks well and has a really nice tone. Stays on during the whole surf session!09/02/2020, By OrignalReal stuff23/01/2020, By QuestBlocks well17/01/2020, By LaurenI love it. It's pretty thick and not that easy to apply straight away but once it warms up a bit, you can spread it easily. I love the fact that it is made from natural products and it lasts so long!14/01/2020, By ShannonOne of the best zinc products used. Effective sunscreen, and has a nice tone to it. Also does not have a bad smell. Definitely recommend.03/01/2020, By MarleneGood sun protection, but feels gritty and greasy on my face when I wear it07/12/2019, By ShanaCANNOT go to the beach without it! My all time favorite sunblock that I have ever used! Stays on the face all day, great skin tone colour, so it's not so obvious I am wearing Zinc.. Doesn't run in to the eyes and also doesn't have a potent smell that you can smell on yourself all day. LOVE IT!!! and of course WORKS!!28/11/2019, By JadeThis is by far the best natural zinc type product my family has ever used. Especially good for water sports active people who spend long hours in the water. It doesn't burn your eyes, and comes off easily with a face cloth. Definitely good value for money26/11/2019, By DeirdreEffective sunscreen that sits on top of skin. A bit grainy and quite hard at the beginning. Needs to be warmed up with fingers before applying to "melt" onto skin.14/11/2019, By BarbsExcellent product. I send it to my surfer son in South East Asia.31/10/2019, By CaitlinLove this sunblock!! Cannot surf without it! Has to be applied generously, but it will stay on ALL day!. doesn't run into your eyes, doesnt dry out your skin or block your pores. its the best!!
Worth the investment :)22/10/2019, By AmandaThis is my favourite sunblock, I love the mattifying effect it has on my skin and really, really protects well.08/10/2019, By LiezelEk werk gereeld in die son en kry "adult acne". Die meeste sunblocks laat my vel uitslaan. Die produk het geensins dit gedoen nie. Dit werk goed vir my vel. Die "tint" kleur help ook met die redness van my gesig, lyk soos n ligte onderlaag. Al nadeel is, dit wend moeilik aan.23/09/2019, By TanahBEST natural sunblock I have found amongst all my travels!! It lasts forever, blends in with my skin tone and feels so great on the skin. Haven't got sunburnt once.25/06/2019, By Laurenmy daughter uses this for water polo, when they finished she's the only one that's face is still protected.
she never leaves home without her Surf Zinc18/05/2019, By AnksAt first I thought I wasted my money, but the more I use it the more I love it. I have acne and I don't use make up because it irritates my skin. When I apply this product it not only protects me from sun damage it also minimises redness on my face, which I absolutely love.. Really the only issue is applying it because I don't want to pull on my face because its bad for you to be rough with your skin and it almost feel like an exfoliation which isn't always great if you use it daily. But that said I will continue to use it as I feel the benefits outweigh the drawbacks at this stage.25/03/2019, By SwiggyIt was hard to apply, and felt grainy on my skin. And once it was on I looked pale. I then realized that it was meant to be applied thick like the cricketers do it. Not what I wanted.11/03/2019, By AngieIt is very hard and difficult to apply. Mine started to create little "sandy grains" in the paste, I wonder if it is the Zinc Oxide grouping, if so then the protective factor is gone when I remove the granules. The colour is also very light, not suitable for people with more of an olive, tan skin tone.14/01/2019, By AmandaYou will not burn,that I can guarantee you.
I walked in the sun for 6 hours, and did not burn at all.
It might be challenging to apply in the beginning as it is grainy and really, really hard-a really hard paste! but you will soon grow to love it like I have. I'm not looking back.
It leaves an excellent matte finish and feels great on skin.
I love it.22/12/2018, By RuVery strange texture and a bit of a mission to apply, but it kept us from burning during quite a long hike. It does sit on your skin so I got sweaty quite fast and had to reapply quite often as I kept rubbing it off. It did a good job. Will see how it holds up in the water.19/12/2018, By KimIt takes a bit of work blending it in your skin. I like that it does not leave an oily residue and it has a slight tint which works well to cover redness on your face....and no break-outs.14/11/2018, By EllaIt's great, looks lovely on the skin, not super shiny, and I love that it is not whitening but you do need to rub it in, and that is slightly uncommon for a sunscreen but doable.13/11/2018, By OliviaWorks very well27/10/2018, By AlexI like it, Its quite hard, but softens to friction (heat of your finger). Tested it in the sun yesterday, seems to have done the job really well. Also, very nice tub that fits into any bag.09/10/2018, By DanielleNot easy to apply on the skin at all. So hard and crumbly, not sure if I am doing anything wrong, cause I just see good reviews, but I dont like this at all.23/09/2018, By ShannonI received this as a sample and will definitely buy it once its finished. It goes on smoothly, and because I am quite pale it blends in with my skin. My skin is pretty sensitive but this doesn't cause any reactions. It has also worked really well when in the sun. No burning as of yet. I look forward to trying it when scuba diving.22/08/2018, By AngeliqueStand out product that protects well and smell great, easy for girls and guys alike to use! It really stays on and protects you!31/07/2018, By JSmells amazing I wanted to eat it ! Incredible product, lasts the whole day in the sea.05/04/2018, By RayBought this recently before going to Tankwa Karoo and I am so pleased with the coverage. Another thing I like about this product is that it is plastic free.03/02/2018, By SuzieOrdered this before a Summer trip to Mozambique and was so thrilled with the results.
Very thick, and certainly makes the skin look a quite ashy, but applied it to all areas that burn easier and found it to be incredibly effective.
We spent hours in the water each day and didn't burn.31/01/2018, By CandiceA bit ashy but great coverage. will definitely buy it again.13/07/2017, By LaraReally effective sunblock! Does leave skin a bit grey, but that doesn't bother me.02/05/2017, By KasparSmells really good and 100% waterproof - in fact, sometimes it's even hard to wash it off after a surf-session!
