MooGoo Cover-Up ButterCup Natural Moisturiser with SPF 15

Why do we Make a Natural  SPF 15 Moisturiser?

A natural SPF 15 cream still provides very good sun protection (SPF 15 means 94% of UV blocked) whilst not requiring as much clear Zinc and other ingredients so that it has better skin feel.  SPF above 15 provides diminishing returns as explained below. 

Our Coverup Buttercup is natural and healthy for the skin and provides long lasting production without using UV Filters or pentration enhancers. 

About SPF

SPF Rating and % of  UV Radiation Protected

A higher SPF rating requires a lot more sunscreen chemical for diminishing returns. SPF 15 blocks 93% while SPF 30 blocks 97%. SPF 15 means that for someone that would typically burn within 15 minutes of direct sun, it should take 4 hours when protected by SPF 15. SPF 30 would take 8 hours of sun.  The amount of protection in reality depends upon both the SPF rating and the thickness or amount which is applied.

(The other way to argue this is that SPF 15 allows 7% of UV through, while SPF 30 allows 3%, so a reduction of 50%. It depends how you do the maths.)

How Sun Protection Works

There are two main types of sunscreens. Firstly natural sunscreens that use Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide as a physical barrier that reflect the sun. The second type use “UV Filters” that absorb high energy UV radiation and emit low energy radiation.

Physical Barriers to UV

Like a hat or shade, a cream containing the Zinc Oxide reflects the UV radiation away. Most Zinc Oxide barriers block both UVB and UVA.

Zinc Oxide would normally be white on the skin. We use a special type of Zinc Oxide that is made here in Australia that is dispersed within Jojoba Oil which helps make it clear and non-greasy.

Like a hat or shade, they simply reflect the UV radiation away. As a physical blocker, Zinc Oxide naturally reflects both UVA and UVB.

MooGoo Skin Care

 

MooGoo was first made when the founder adapted a cream used in dairy farms to help a family member with a skin problem. The dairy version of “udder cream” was designed to heal the cow’s udders and keep them in good condition for milking. It was full of skin repair ingredients and no gimmicks. Cows don’t care too much about the latest fad in skin care, or even “Organic blends of Horsetail and Bergamot…” They do need healthy skin on their most valuable assets. Although the original cream used in the dairy farms was legendary for its skin healing properties, it was thick and greasy. MooGoo modified the cream for human use by keeping all the skin healing properties but making it non-greasy.
