Multitasking powder booster to mix with oils and balms. The sun protective ingredient here is highest-grade, minimally processed non-nano and uncoated zinc oxide (particle size 325 nm), which is the healthiest, safest, and most reliable sun shield ingredient available today.
Zinc oxide has so many advantages as a sun shield: it can be safely used around the eyes, and it is a physical sun reflector, so it works immediately after application and makes one feel (a little) cooler when in the sun. It is biodegradable and safe for coral reefs and other marine life (it settles on the sea floor without causing any harm or entering into chemical reactions).
There are several skin care benefits from zinc oxide itself, from anti-acne and anti-inflammatory action to protective and soothing properties. The anti-acne benefits only shine if you use zinc oxide in a non-comedogenic, acne-skin-appropriate facial oil or serum.
The second ingredient in Farizad's Veil is pure powdered aloe, which performs many functions here, from moisturizing, skin damage preventing, and skin damage correcting to cooling, repairing, and soothing. With how many skin care products do you get to wear the actual powdered herbs on your skin all day? That is a mask session in itself. The aloe also softens the stark white colour of the zinc oxide, making it less-than-typically skin whitening.Farizad’s Veil can be used all year long, not only to shield from the sun, but also to soothe skin irritations, reduce redness, speed healing of acne breakouts, and decrease hyperpigmentation.
For all skin types, including acne-prone, combination, sensitive, and mature.
Measure out a single-use amount of the powder (1 / 32 to 1 / 16 teaspoon) - yes, that is a teeny tiny amount - into a ceramic bowl and add from several drops to half a dropper of your favourite daytime face oil or oil-based serum. Mix with your fingertips to create a thin, smooth lotion. Apply onto the skin, rubbing in gently with your fingertips to minimize the whitening effect and to distribute evenly. Add extra drops of your oil directly onto your face if needed to achieve an even distribution. We especially recommend using our Ruby Face Oil to mix with Farizad's Veil, as that oil is lightweight, sun-protective, fast-absorbing, and highly appropriate for daytime use in the summer.
Depending on the quantity used, our testing shows that Farizad's Veil provides sun protection roughly equal to a sunscreen with an SPF of 20 to 40 (the more powder used, the higher the sun protection).
For a light-feel, “second-skin” type of sun-ray protector, mix Farizad’s Veil with a light, moisturizing face oil or oil-based serum. This sunscreen will work well mixed with any of Earthwise Beauty’s facial oils and with Ferns and Moss Face Serum. It should work with other brands’ moisturizers if they contain oils, but not with gels or gel-creams. Test a few different addition options and quantities to determine what works best for you. You may even mix Farizad’s Veil with your liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer. For a simple, non-comedogenic, and very pleasing result, try mixing with pure organic cold-press unrefined jojoba or argan oil.
Avoid inhaling the powder.
Ok, so this one takes getting used to, but when you fo get the right combination of this white powder with the Ruby Face Oil, you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Especially for all you sun-sensitive poppets who spend all day out in the sun. If you use too much of this Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector, yes, it will give a white effect on the face, so it's ideal to go light at first. You can always add more powder to the oil to find that "just right" balance.
