Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector
Non-pore-clogging, light, breathable, and flexible
Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector is a 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 sun protection from its typically oily carrier medium.
Since most of us have a carefully researched and tested skin care ritual for our skin type, you don't want to add a layer of sunscreen cream into the mix, which could clog the pores or feel un-breathable or heavy.
The active FDA-approved sun protective ingredient in Farizad’s Veil is cosmetic-grade, un-coated, non-nano zinc oxide. Earthwise Beauty chose this source of zinc oxide after an extended, months-long search among many suppliers, of which serve both the cosmetic industry and the pharmaceutical industry.
There are several skin care benefits from zinc oxide itself. From anti-acne and anti-inflammatory action to protective and soothing properties. The anti-acne benefits only shine if you use zinc oxide in a non-comedogenic, acne-skin-appropriate facial oil or serum.
The second ingredient in Farizad's Veil is pure powdered aloe, which performs many functions here. From moisturizing, skin damage preventing, and skin damage correcting to cooling, repairing, and soothing. With how many skin care products do you get to wear the actual powdered herbs on your skin all day? That is a mask session in itself. The aloe also softens the stark white color of the zinc oxide, making it less than typically skin whitening.
With Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector, you use your own beloved daytime facial oil and add just a bit of the powder to it. It mixes right in and offers a range of protection options depending on how much of the powder you use, without inadvertently adding anything undesirable.
Farizad’s Veil can be used all year long, not only to shield from the sun, but also to soothe skin irritations, reduce redness, speed healing of acne breakouts, and decrease hyperpigmentation.
The ingredients that make a difference
Aloe powder has cooling properties and is anti-inflammatory.
Frankincense oil to your face can help prevent wrinkles and lift and tighten skin to stop or reverse the signs of aging. Because it's a powerful astringent, it also helps reduce acne blemishes and the appearance of large pores.

How to use it
Morning & Night
Measure out a single-use amount of the powder (1/32 to 1/16 teaspoon) and place into a ceramic bowl. Add several drops to half a dropper of your favorite daytime face oil, oil-based serum, or 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.
"Can be mixed into anything - serums, oils and moisturizers - for custom protection."
