Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector
- KEY BIOACTIVES:
- HOW TO USE:
Farizad's Veil allows you to create a variety of protection-boosting products customized to your skin’s needs. Simply mix a bit of your favorite face oil with the Farizad powder to create your own perfect veil.
The formula features non-nano and uncoated zinc oxide, which is a safe and reliable sun shield ingredient. It is combined with powdered aloe, which helps with moisturizing and minimizing the appearance of skin damage while soothing the skin. The aloe has the added benefit of softening the stark white color of the zinc oxide, reducing the white-cast.
Farizad’s Veil can be used all year long, not only to shield from the sun, but also to soothe skin irritations, reduce the appearance of redness, promote clearer skin, and improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Zinc oxide has so many advantages as a sun shield: it can be safely used around the eyes, and it is a physical sun reflector, so it shields immediately after application and makes one feel (a little) cooler when in the sun. It is biodegradable and safe for coral reefs and other marine life (it settles on the sea floor without causing any harm or entering into chemical reactions).
There are several skin care benefits from zinc oxide itself—it can help clarify acne-prone skin, and has cooling, soothing, protective properties. The benefits for acne-prone skin shine if you use zinc oxide in a noncomedogenic, 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 and minimizing the appearance of skin damage to cooling 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.

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 a face balm to mix with Farizad's Veil, as that oil is lightweight, sun-protective, fast-absorbing, and highly appropriate for daytime use in the summer.
Caution: Use in a well-ventilated area and avoid inhaling the powder.
