Finca Skin Organics
Did you know that not protecting your sensitive skin from the sun is one of the most common triggers for rosacea? I was only too aware having had several occasions where my skin remained red and flushed for days after a few too many hours in the sun, and so I was always careful to regularly apply high factor sunscreen whenever I was out for a prolonged period.
However, I found that on many occasions, despite being vigilant with my sunscreen application, my skin remained flushed and inflamed anyway. It also often felt dry and itchy. I felt frustrated and hppeless and came to the conclusion that my skin was so sensitive even high SPF susncreen wouldn't protect it from the sun.
Little did I know that the sunscreen I was using was packed-full of harmful and unnecessary chemcials, causing the aggravation to my skin. That's when I developed my own formula, made only with ingredients I knew was okay for my fair rosacea skin, and, not without a little trepidation, stepped out into the sunlight.
I was amazed at the results - no irritation, no heat-stroke, no flushing.
That's the story of the development of our high-SPF sunscreen, specifically designed to protect skin affected by rosacea from the sun.
Most sunscreens contain at least 20 ingredients, increasing the chances of your sensitive skin becoming irritated and flushed. This stripped-down sunscreen without all of these irritants contain just 7 ingredients, ensuring that your skin is treated with kindness.
It also lightly masks many imperfections such as redness and blemishes with a natural tint and works best for type 1 rosacea.
Finca sunscreen is an effective, healthy and safe sunscreen for your sensitive rosacea prone skin. You can use the Finca Facial Sunscreen daily and be confident that it’s free of harmful petrochemicals that are known to bio-accumulate.
It also utilises the safest sunscreen ingredient for your skin - Zinc Oxide.
Zinc oxide is a better sunscreen active ingredient than titanium dioxide and the only one we use for the following reasons:
The zinc oxide Finca uses is non-nano and non-micronized; there are zero zinc oxide nanoparticles in our formulas.
Our products are the only rosacea treatments widely available to be completely free from all of the following artificial additives:
|25% Non-Nano Zinc Oxide|
|Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil|
|Certified Organic Jojoba Oil|
|Organic Shea Butter|
|Eldorado Springs Artesian Water|
|Vegetable Emulsifying Wax (cetearyl alcohol & polysorbate 60 coconut extracts)|
1. Give the tube a quick shake before use.
2. Apply with fingers sparingly and allow fifteen minutes before going outside.
The yellow colour tint of the sunscreen helps to reduce the visible appearance of redness whilst helping you avoid the biggest Rosacea trigger - UV light.
