This delightfully breathable, flexible sun protective formula combines a light, non-pore-clogging, luxuriously soft feel, a stylish feminine scent, and safe, reliable 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 unwanted added ingredients.
The effectiveness comes from uncoated zinc oxide, which is the safest, healthiest, most reliable nontoxic sun shield available today. Zinc oxide 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.
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.
Moroccan rose, Indian champaca flower, geranium leaves from Madagascar, and frankincense 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, and the powder is certified cruelty free, vegan, cold process, all natural, handcrafted, and fair trade.
