A hard-wearing 100% oil based balm works with the Sun, not against it.
At 18% Zinc content, our surf paste is more concentrated than the fluid Elemental Day Silk, firmer in consistency, creamier in texture, less translucent, and specifically composed for active outdoor life, long days on the beach, just-one-more-surf moments, desert rides and mountain hikes – basically places where the Sun is high and mighty.
Helps strengthen and support your skin's natural defence, balance heat/cold elements, and combat environmental stress. Deeply hydrates and locks in moisture.

For women and men of all skin types. All ages. Benefits element-beaten, environmentally-challenged, toxin-overloaded skin.
Massage a small amount into skin outdoor activity. If you don't like the Zinc white Summer look, let it sink in for 5-10 minutes before heading out. Re-apply every two hours and after towelling. Can be worn under foundation or blended with make up if that's your thing, but be mindful that cocktailing dilutes the 18% active Zinc content and diminishes it's potency. Can be used a a skin soothing barrier cream.
Toasted grain and fresh seeds linger ever so lightly over fragrant wood and earthy roots. A hint of dry, powdery mineral is seduced into a silky-smooth dance by warm floral honey and sultry touches of mysterious resin; Intoxicating, voluptuous Ylang Ylang connects everything with it's borderline narcotic scent, that sings a song of sensual Summer night dreams and awe-inspired meanderings through exotic, warm dew dripping rain forests. Very special indeed.

SUN-INFUSED WHOLE PLANT EXTRACTS
All our whole plant extracts are sun-infused by us on our Kangaroo Valley farm in certified Demeter biodynamic Olive oil.
THE PROCESS IS AS SIMPLE AS IT IS ANCIENT:
We gather the most pristine herbs, grown in natural soil, tended by soulful people, harvested at their aromatic peak, and air-dried or sun-cured.
We then steep these aromatic symphony in biodynamic Olive oil for 4-6 months in glass, turning the urns daily with the sun – like a vigneron would rotate his champagne bottles.
We watch the colour transfer from the plant parts into the oil, creating an entirely new nectar all together: a perfectly balanced expression of the plant's healing properties, it's provenance, and it's life.
But really, it all starts with good, healthy and natural soil, and our skincare is about respecting, honouring and protecting planet Earth just as much as the skin we're in.
Our gentle method of sun-infusion preserves the delicate properties of our botanicals, allows us to use heat-sensitive extra virgin olive oil, and, important to us, uses zero electricity.
Presented in patented UVA light filtering glass jars with hand-stamped pine resin (100% plastic and vinyl-free) gold wax seal. Stitched into hand-embossed black linen paper sleeves. Following ancient apothecary tradition, our bottles are purified with Myrrh + Frankincense smoke prior to filling to boost longevity of the composition and to bestow genius of spirit.
