Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector | Earth Wise Beauty
Farizad's Veil is Ava's take on a sun shield formula for the contemporary woman: luxurious, non-pore-clogging, light, breathable, flexible, and with a beautiful, sophisticated natural scent. It is a liberation of zinc oxide from its typically oily carrier medium. Guarding our skin from the sun is so important, but since most of us have a carefully researched and tested skin care ritual for our skin type, we don't want to add a layer of heavy cream into the mix that could clog the pores or feel unbreathable.
With Farizad's Veil, you use your own beloved daytime facial oil and add just a bit of Farizad's Veil powder to it. It mixes right in and offers a range of protection-boosting options depending on how much of the powder you use, without inadvertently adding anything undesirable.
The fragrance and product name were inspired by Farizad, a heroine from Arabian Nights. Determined, a believer in destiny and in her intuition's voice, Farizad had the smile of the rose and cried real pearls!
The essential ingredient here is highest-grade, minimally processed non-nano and uncoated zinc oxide (particle size 325 nm), which is a healthy, safe, and reliable sun shield ingredient (another GRAS option is titanium dioxide, but it does not offer full-spectrum UV protection). Nano particles are controversial, and it remains to be proven whether they are safe for our health, and we specifically used uncoated zinc oxide as the most unrefined, most natural version (coated zinc oxide means that the particles have been coated with another substance).
For all skin types, including acne-prone, combination, sensitive, and mature.
How To Use: Measure out a single-use amount of the powder (1/32 to 1/16 teaspoon) into a ceramic bowl, add several drops to half a dropper of your favorite daytime face oil, oil-based serum or a small scoop of one of our face balms. 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.
