What Is Inside The AYAN Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for Baby and Adults SPF50?

The water-resistant and sweat proof mineral based sunscreen contains 25% non-nano zinc oxide, non-nano means larger particles of the mineral zinc oxide rather than some mineral sunscreens that use nanoparticles which are much smaller in size. The two differences between chemical and mineral sunscreens are that chemical based sunscreens absorb the UV ray's whilst mineral sunscreens act as a physical block that scatter and reflect the sun's UV radiation away. The benefits i like about this sunscreen is that it does not contain fragrance so you can apply around the eyes while also benefiting from the skin-loving ingredients it contains when applied. The seven ingredients featured in the AYAN mineral sunscreen are as follows:

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil* - The all skin type plant oil that helps protect the skin by keeping it hydrated while also helping to support the skin barrier function. 

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide (25%) - Protects against UVB, UVA II, and UVA I while it also is capable of being a skin protectant and anti-irritant that is why u find this ingredient in nappy creams.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter* - Rich emollient that soothes skin and contains vitamin A, E, F, quercetin and epigallocatechin gallate while also helping to protect the skin from environmental factors.

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil* - Emollient that contains fatty acids that is beneficial for dry skin types and can help relieve atopic dermatitis. 

Cera Alba (Beeswax)* - Emollient that helps to calm and soothe the skin while promoting healing with its antibacterial properties. 

Tocopherol (Vit E) - Antioxidant that fights free radicals that can damage the skin while it also has photoprotection properties protecting the skin from UVB rays.

Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter* - Rich emollient cocoa butter helps to nourish and moisturise to improve elasticity while also containing skin-loving fatty acids, antioxidant vitamin E and polyphenols.

How To Use The AYAN Mineral Sunscreen Lotion for Baby and Adults SPF50?

Presented in a sealed pump bottle, the AYAN Mineral Sunscreen contains butter and you may find the texture can lightly harden in case of low temperatures which will influence the pump not working  properly. Put the bottle in a warm place, wait 10 minutes and try the pump again. Pump onto your hands and apply liberally 15 minutes before sunbathing and after swimming while it is water and sweat resistant for 80 minutes and should be reapplied after towel drying and at least every 2 hours. I apply a sunscreen daily either to a cleansed skin or after any current moisturiser i am using making it be the last skincare product i use. The creamy formulation glides over the skin easily and will present itself as a white cast on the skin due to it being a zinc oxide sunscreen but it soon fades when the formulation settles and absorbs. I love the subtle natural cocoa fragrance you experience (there is no added fragrance) and the skin is left feeling nourished like you have applied a rich moisturiser without you looking overly shiny or feeling oily. The recyclable and bag-friendly packaging is ideal for top-ups during the day or to take with you on your holidays away to ensure skin protection wherever you are.
