Celebrate life outside with Botanical Sunscreens
Since launching our Botanical products, we've been on a mission to help sunscreen users understand the benefit of mineral sunscreens. Here's the scoop! Sunscreens can use two different types of UV filters to protect skin against sun damage: Mineral and Chemical. These filters are differentiated by their active sun protection ingredients. Classic sunscreens, also commonly referred to as “traditional”, use active ingredients that protect the skin by absorbing the sun's rays. They are often referred to as chemical absorbers. Mineral sunscreens use mineral active ingredients, also known as “physical blockers”, that sit on top of the skin to deflect and scatter UVA and UVB rays. Common mineral active ingredients are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide.
Whether you prefer Mineral or Chemical sunscreens, you are covered with Australian Gold. All of our formulations, both Classic and Mineral, guarantee broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays, and we are always innovating to bring you the best products that you’ll love to put on – because wearing sunscreen should be easy and enjoyable.
Embracing our roots, each Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen contains three powerhouse Australian botanicals that provide superior skin care benefits.
Kakadu Plum is a native Australian fruit that contains the highest level of Vitamin C of any food. It is an excellent antioxidant and is known to promote collagen production while also helping to mitigate damage done by free radicals from sun exposure.
Eucalyptus helps to calm, rejuvenate and oxygenate skin, thanks to the essential oils found in this plant's leaves.
Red Algae is among the most nutritious seaweeds in the world with a 30%-50% protein content. This botanical delivers Vitamin A, Niacin, Iodine, Iron, Folic Acid and three Amino Acids. Red Algae can be found in many waters around the world, including Australia.
