Great For All Skin Types (including acne-prone, combination, sensitive, and mature).
This delightfully breathable, flexible sunscreen formula combines a light, non-pore-clogging, luxuriously soft feel, a sophisticated feminine scent, and safe, reliable sun protection. While most sunscreens feel heavy and oily on the skin, Farizad’s Veil’s powder format allows you to customize your sun protection by using your own favorite facial oil or serum as the base, providing effective protection without any undesirable added ingredients.
The effectiveness comes from minimally processed, non-nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide, which is the safest, healthiest, most reliable nontoxic sunscreen available today. It offers full-spectrum UV protection, is safe to use around the eyes, and is biodegradable and safe for coral reefs and other marine life. Because Zinc Oxide is a physical sun reflector, it works immediately upon application, and even makes the skin feel cooler in the hot sun. Zinc Oxide also has anti-acne and anti-inflammatory properties, and because it gives a matte finish, you may be able to skip foundation when using Farizad's Veil. By varying the amount of powder you use, you can achieve sun protection ranging from SPF 20 to SPF 50.
The formula also includes pure powdered Aloe Leaves, which act like an all-day facial mask to moisturize, cool, and soothe the skin and prevent and correct skin damage. And Moroccan Rose, Indian Champaca Flower, Geranium Leaves from Madagascar, and Frankincense from Oman combine to provide a beautiful and refined scent.The essential oils and absolutes used in Farizad’s Veil are all artisan-distilled, small-batch, therapeutic-grade, and organic or responsibly wildcrafted.
- Color and Texture: The soft white colored powder disperses in oils into a light, milky-looking SPF lotion. The color of the mixed lotion will vary depending on the color of the carrier oil.
- Scent: Feminine yet assertive, the intoxicating floral scent combines Moroccan Rose, Rare Pink Indian Champaca Flower, Rose Geranium, Madagascar Geranium Leaves, and a delicate Frankincense from Oman. If you prefer an unscented sunscreen, leave the jar open for a few days, lightly covered with fabric or a paper towel to protect it from dust, to allow the scent to dissipate.
Handcrafted in the USA.
0.65 oz./ 18.5 grams.
Measure 1/16 to 1/8 teaspoon of the powder into a ceramic mixing bowl and add 4 to 6 drops of your favorite daytime facial oil or oil-based serum, or an equivalent amount of face balm. Mix with your fingertips and apply onto the skin, rubbing in gently to minimize the whitening effect and to distribute evenly. A barely whitened skin will give an SPF of approximately 20 to 25, a skin whitened by one shade will give an SPF of 30 to 35, and slightly more whitened skin will give an SPF of up to 50. SPF numbers are based on our testing and experience, including testing side-by-side with well-regarded brands of mineral sunscreen products, from creams and sticks to dusting powders.
For a light-feel, “second-skin” type of sunscreen, mix Farizad’s Veil with a moisturizing, light facial 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; since it is a physical-barrier sunscreen, it is equally effective whether applied in your moisturizer or your makeup. For a simple, non-comedogenic, and very pleasing result, try mixing with pure organic cold-pressed unrefined Jojoba or Argan Oil.
Store away from direct light exposure and excessive heat to protect the fragile botanicals within. Avoid inhaling the powder.
