You heard right, friends: Australia’s first vegan surf zinc is here!
Unless you’re vegan, you might never have considered the beeswax industry, why sustainable beekeeping matters or whether your zinc is made using animal products.
We covered the ins and outs of the beekeeping industry in a blog a while back, but essentially it goes a little like this:
From the beginning, our mission has been to not only to tread very lightly on the earth, but also to actively create alternative eco-friendly products that make the planet more sustainable. So while sourcing local sustainable beeswax was a possibility when we were hand-making zincs in our home kitchen, it proved a little tricky when demand grew and we needed to start slinging more and more tins of the good stuff.
After much researching and soul-searching, we decided to stop using beeswax altogether because we didn’t feel comfortable with the practices of any large-scale beekeeping producers. Hence, Australia’s first vegan surf zinc was born! Huzzah!
We now make our zinc with natural butters, waxes, oils and non-nano particle zinc oxide. It glides on easy and is designed to be applied super thick and protect you for up to four hours in the water. Like all our products, it’s cruelty-free, palm oil free, reef safe, great for sensitive skin and SPF50 TGA listed. Plus, it comes in a nice big 70-gram tin and has a scrum-diddly-umptious cacao aroma.
So, that’s the long and short of why we created our vegan surf zinc. Any questions? We’re all ears.
