I was excited to find a zinc product that came in lovely lip colours! The colour is lovely and applies smoothly. However, I don’t believe it is waterproof. I can’t see anywhere on the product packaging that makes this claim, however, I assumed it would be suitable for wearing while doing water sports. Otherwise, it is a great product!
Hi Catherine, thank you so much for your review and I am so happy to see you love it too!
Under the Australian sunscreen standard AS/NZS 2604:2012 cosmetic sunscreens cannot claim water resistance.
The founders have done testing and would love to be able to mention it is water-resistant (as to their testing) but it is against the rules. The beeswax/oil base formula renders this product water-resistant when compared with typical water-based sunscreen lotion.
I do recommend users to re-apply every two hours nonetheless to ensure ongoing coverage (as we tend to wipe our face a lot when being in the water. Does this help? With love, Ellie
