Getting outdoors should not be dangerous!

Just going for a walk on your treadmill is not what you would call “getting outside”. Getting outdoors and being in the fresh air and doing all kinds of satisfying things on a daily basis can be a cherished activity. Walking outside and enjoying nature with body health and wellness.

The more you enjoy Nature, the healthier you become. Go to the local park or beach and enjoy the fresh air and use all the resources available in your local area.

But Mother Nature can be harsh. Particularly in New Zealand with its intense sunny rays. Gradually increase exposure time to avoid sunburns. The importance is to start slow and expose your skin to short periods of radiation. A few minutes per day depending on your skin type and the UV radiation. These small amounts of radiation allow the skin to build up its self-defense and to avoid an overstimulation of the melanocytic cells.

You need to expose a sufficient amount of skin to sunlight to maintain healthy vitamin D blood levels. Wearing a top and shorts for 10–30 minutes three times per week is sufficient for lighter-skinned people, while those with darker skin may need longer

At Zealandia Organics we have produced a range of natural products that are in tune with Nature and your body. You can enjoy the great outdoors with peace of mind and protection, knowing that the ingredients we use are all smiled upon by Mother Nature.

So whatever outdoor activity you enjoy whether it be hiking, walking, swimming, sailing, surfing, fishing or just lazing around in the sun, make sure you have fun.

To avoid sunburns when you are outside for more than 30 mins application of sunscreen is recommended. Organic suncream that are reef-friendly offer several advantages over conventional sunscreens, especially for those concerned about environmental impact, marine life preservation, and personal health:

  • Health and Safety: Reduced Exposure to Toxins: Organic ingredients are free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and GMOs, reducing the risk of adverse reactions and long-term health issues.


  • Lower Risk of Irritation: Organic ingredients are typically gentler on the skin, minimizing the chances of irritation, allergic reactions, and sensitivities.


  • No Harmful Chemicals: Reef-friendly organic sunscreens typically do not contain oxybenzone and octinoxate, chemicals known to harm coral reefs and marine life. These chemicals can contribute to coral bleaching and disrupt ecosystems.


  • Biodegradable Formulas: Organic sunscreens often use biodegradable ingredients that break down naturally without accumulating in the environment. This reduces the impact on marine ecosystems compared to non-biodegradable chemical sunscreens.


  • Gentler on Skin: Organic sunscreens tend to use natural mineral-based ingredients like zinc oxide which are less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions compared to chemical UV filters.


  • Enhanced Skin Health: Less Irritation and Sensitization. Nano and micro particles can sometimes cause skin irritation or sensitization. Products without these particles are generally gentler on the skin and less likely to cause adverse reactions. Zealandia Organics Sun Cream is suitable for babies from 6-month-old.


  • Improved Skin Barrier Function: By not disrupting the skin’s natural barrier with nano or micro particles, the overall health and function of the skin barrier are better maintained, leading to healthier skin.


  • Broad-Spectrum Protection: Many organic sunscreens provide broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, similar to conventional sunscreens. This ensures effective protection from sunburns and premature skin aging.


  • Environmental Responsibility: Choosing reef-friendly sunscreen supports responsible tourism practices by minimizing the impact of sunscreen pollution on coral reefs and other marine organisms.


  • Regulatory Compliance: Some regions, such as Hawaii and parts of the Caribbean, have banned the use of oxybenzone and octinoxate in sunscreens due to their detrimental effects on coral reefs. Using reef-friendly organic sunscreens ensures compliance with local regulations and promotes environmental stewardship.


  • Cruelty-Free: Zealandia Organic Sun Cream Lavender and Reef Friendly is cruelty-free (not tested on animals) and suits consumers who prioritize ethical and sustainable skincare products.


  • We incorporated Lavender organic essential oil in the Zealandia Organic Sun Cream Lavender and Reef Friendly for the Anti-inflammatory Properties: Lavender essential oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This can help soothe and calm the skin, reducing redness and irritation that might occur due to sun exposure.


  • Antioxidant Effects: Lavender oil contains antioxidants that can help protect the skin from free radicals generated by UV rays. These antioxidants can reduce the damage caused by oxidative stress, helping to prevent premature aging and other skin issues.


  • Antimicrobial Benefits: The antimicrobial properties of lavender essential oil can help protect the skin from bacterial infections, which might be beneficial if the skin is damaged or broken from excessive sun exposure.


  • Aromatherapy Benefits: The pleasant scent of lavender can provide aromatherapy benefits, promoting relaxation and reducing stress. This can enhance the overall user experience of the sunscreen.


  • Moisturizing Properties: Lavender oil can help in moisturizing the skin. Well-moisturized skin is more resilient and less likely to suffer from sun damage and dehydration.


  • Healing Properties: Lavender oil is known for its ability to promote skin healing. It can be beneficial in soothing minor burns and enhancing the skin’s natural healing process, which is useful for after-sun care.

Overall, the advantages of using organic, reef-friendly natural organic Sun Cream include environmental protection, personal health benefits, and supporting sustainable practices that contribute to preserving marine ecosystems for future generations.
