SunArmour is made with only natural ingredients. It nourishes and protects your skin from the sun. 

It is easily applied, effective, lightweight and non-greasy and provides UVA and UVB protection.

KoruKai SunArmour protects your skin from the sun. At the same time your skin is nourished and revitalised by the other natural ingredients. 

We have the SunArmour in 75g available in glass packaging. We offer the 150g size in recylable plastic only because the glass container makes the product very heavy and impractical for most outdoor situations.

SunArmour is a sunblock, therefore has no SPF rating. It can be compared to a SPF 30+ sunscreen.

Active ingredient is natural zinc oxide:
Zinc oxide is a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting and absorbing UVA & UVB rays. Zinc oxide is an effective and safe way to protect your skin from the sun's rays as it provides broad UV protection and is not absorbed into your body (unlike petroleum-based sunscreen chemicals). It sits on the top of your skin where it needs to be, effectively providing a layer of armour against damaging UV rays. We use non-nano, uncoated zinc oxide that does not get absorbed into the bloodstream causing damage to your organs or fish in the ocean. 


Directions:
Apply evenly onto clean and dry skin prior to sun exposure. Don't over apply as your skin will be more white from the extra zinc oxide.  
It is effective straight away as the zinc oxide forms a protective layer on your skin.

Avoid getting it onto clothes as the zinc oxide is hard to wipe or wash off. 

Reapply after swimming, exercise, excessive perspiration or towel drying.

Although zinc oxide is the safest and most effective natural sunscreen ingredient, the best protection from the sun is to seek shade between 11am and 3pm and cover up with clothes and a hat.

Please note that we offer this product in plastic and glass containers. The plastic container is recyclable High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and should go into your recycling bin and NOT the rubbish bin. Thank you


Chemical and natural Sunscreens in the news
We regularly hear from people, whose children have had a serious reaction to chemical sunscreens and are admitted to hospital because of it. In September an article stated that some chemical sunscreens can wreck a car's paintwork. A month later natural mineral sunscreens also hit the news.
Two natural sunscreens have been recalled, and another will be relabelled to correct a false claim of high SPF, following Consumer New Zealand testing.
Read the article here.
Now you might wonder where we stand with our KoruKai SunArmour and we are here to answer any questions you might have. So here are some facts for you.
There are two types of sunscreen test. In vivo is the "old fashioned" but more reliable testing method. It involves 10 human volunteers who apply the sunscreen and their skin is tested for a change of colour (pigment darkening) after being exposed to the sun for a certain period of time.
In vitro is a laboratory test and the modern version of the above method. Several in vitro techniques have been developed, but at present there is no broadly accepted method.
Each country has their own methods and regulations. At present NZ has none and sunscreens are not required to get tested. If a sunscreen from NZ is to be tested is has to go to an Australian institute, which can be very costly.
At KoruKai we have basically done the in vivo testing method and have tested it on ourselves. In the first year, I (Cornelia) have solely used our homemade mineral sunscreen over the entire summer with great results. No sunburn, great protection. In the second year our whole family, including the children and grandparents, has used the sunscreen. So a total of 7 people. We are all fair skinned and have not gotten a sunburn once when the sunscreen was applied. We had a light tan on exposed skin at the end of summer and rated the sunscreen as a SPF 30 (that's the SPF we used to buy and we had the same results).
In the 3rd year we started selling and marketing our SunArmour and had great customer feedback in regard to its effectiveness, scent, texture and use for sensitive skin.
We have also decided to give you a 30-day money back guarantee when purchasing our SunArmour as we are confident that you will love it as much as we do!
