Want to make a natural sunscreen? Have you got 6 years to invest into it? That’s how long this product took to develop because Catherine Atzen was not satisfied until she achieved a product that was safe, effective, easily absorbed with the highest quality ingredients possible.
I often get clients asking about the best sun protection that doesn’t have nasties in it. This is really important as studies have shown a lot of the sunscreen ingredients that were cancer society approved were actually carcinogenic. We’ve mentioned before that anything you put on your skin can enter you bloodstream within 26 seconds. So what do Jessie and I turn to as a safe and effective alternative for ourselves and our family?
We were so thrilled when we started stocking the ATZEN - Superior to Organic skin care line and realised it had separate sunscreen products for the face and also one for the body… and then I got to try it. OMG! It is the best one I’ve tried both for consistency and the quality of ingredients not to mention it’s high percentage (88%) of organic and natural ingredients. This translates to being light and easy to spread with an invisible texture as well as safe for children. No white residue when you rub this baby into your skin. A little goes a long way with this product.
Other benefits include:
- SPF50+ that’s suitable for sensitive/allergic skin
- Soothing and safe for sensitive skin and around the eyes (except for ultra sensitive eyes)
- Will help to prevent brown spots on the hands if used daily
- UVA, UVB and UVC full spectrum protection
- 80 minutes water resistance
- No sunscreen smell
- Good for sports and long-exposure to the sun and our NZ climate
- Won’t block the pores, so it’s fine for the face.
- Helps protect from environmental factors such as pollution.

Now, if you are wondering how this product actually does all that and you want to know more, read on…here is the nitty gritty behind the ingredients that makes this product so special.
Zinc Oxide (Pharmaceutical Grade (Highest Quality): This is a natural mineral and works to provide full spectrum protection from UVA, UVB and UVC rays.
Titanium Dioxide (Highest Quality Natural Mineral): Works to provide full spectrum protection from UVA, UVB and UVC rays.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride: A clinical study proved that this ingredient significantly reduced wrinkles, redness and daily micro lesions caused by pollution. The study was done with 24 volunteers with a mean age of 58 over 6 months. The pigmentation spots were lessened by 56%, firmness increased by 35% and redness and sensitivity decreased by 45%.
Na Hyaluronate (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid from Mushrooms): This is important. Most Hyaluronic Acid in skin care products is not from natural sources and is of an inferior quality. This is the best quality and most natural possible.
Check out what this clever little polymer can do! It occupies space between skin cells and keeps hydrating the epidermis throughout the day. This means a comfortable and healthy plump complexion for 14+ hours. Wow!
Organic Camellia Sinensis leaf Extract (Green Tea): This powerful antioxidant is soothing for the cell matrix of the skin. In a nutshell this means it reduces sun damage, inflammation and roach including papulopustular rosacea! This ingredient inhibits the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin in the skin. So cool.
Organic Allantoin (Comfrey/Plant Extract): Anti-redness and soothing. A skin softener and it inhibits allergic responses.
Other Chemically Sounding Ingredients: With ATZEN you can be sure that all the rest of the ingredients that have long names that you don’t understand are naturally plant sourced or natural minerals that act as emulsifiers or stabilisers or thickeners.
This product provides moisture and love to your skin as well as super duper sun protection. The product is natural and Superior to Organic.
Be prepared for summer and be sure you are safe on all levels!
