Description

Oasis Sun Ultra SPF 50+ offers maximum broad spectrum sun protection from damaging UV rays for all the family. It combines state of the art, new generation sunscreen ingredients to both block and absorb UVA and UVB rays and is completely photo-stable.

We designed it using the harsh sunlight and UV conditions of New Zealand as a testing ground. Then we took it to an independent laboratory to ensure meets the latest sunscreen standards, to give you full confidence that this product does what it says!

So Oasis Sun Ultra SPF 50+ does a tough job but we’ve kept the ingredients as gentle as possible and made sure it’s also kind to your skin. In fact, we've formulated this sunscreen specifically for sensitive skin and the unique ingredients have a very low allergy risk.

Oasis Sun Ultra SPF 50+:

  • Offers maximum UVA and UVB broad spectrum protection
  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Can be used on face and body
  • Dry-touch feel
  • Suitable for all the family
  • Free of fragrance, colouring, parabens, phthalates and sulphates
  • Vegan friendly
  • Completely photo-stable and no estrogenic activity
  • Perfect travel size – 100ml.  Approved for carry-on luggage
  • Reef safe
  • Tested at SPF 68.9 against Australia New Zealand Standard 2604:2012 
  • Tested at UVAPF 21 which equates to PA++++ which is the highest UVA protection rating

Directions

That plus + sign after the SPF 50 means that this sunscreen tested higher than 60.  In fact, it tested at SPF 68! It has the maximum PA++++ rating which means you are well protected from UVA as well as UVB.

Apply liberally to skin at least 20 minutes before going outside.  Even though this is a maximum protection sunscreen, you need to reapply at least every 2 hours and after swimming, exercise or towel drying.  

As with all our sunscreens, it is safe to use on the face and around the eyes.  But do not get it into your eyes because, like most things you get in your eye, it will sting.

And remember our sunscreens are some of the best but you should always be careful out in the New Zealand and Australian sun. 

Be Sun Smart. Cover up with clothing, sunhat and sunglasses and stay in the shade (when possible) during peak burn time (10am to 4pm).

oasis sun SPF 30

I love the product. Easy to apply, and you don't even know you are wearing it. Lovely to have the sun protection, with no "bad" ingredients in the product. I have recommended it to all my friends and family!

Sweet under my daytime makeup :-)

Great sunscreen! Does leave my face a little pale but it sits well under my usual foundation so no drama there. Nice and moisturizing too :-)

A good organic physical screen but leaves a very white colour

I have changed from Oasis beauty spf 30 to the Oasis Sun spf 50 recently in this changing of the season. Spf 50 means that you can stay under the sun for 50 munites. The formula for this products seem gentle and it's organic. The only drawback is that it is very thick and it left a very white tint even after rubbing into the skin.

Disappointed

I purchased this sunscreen with the intention of using it as a daily sunscreen to apply to my face. I had determined that it was a better choice than the Oasis family SPF30 sunscreen, because it reaches the highest standard of UV-A protection (PA++++).

The big let down is that this sunscreen is in fact water resistant, so you'll need to use a cleanser in the evening to strip the sunscreen off your face. unfortunately this also ends up stripping off all the natural protective oils from your skin, leading to irritation. With the Oasis family SPF30 you could simply wash all the sunscreen off your face with plain warm water.

The sunscreen doesn't mention anywhere on the label that it is in fact water resistant. It simply says in small print to "reapply every 2 hours, after swimming". I wish the labeling had been clearer and perhaps stated something along the lines of "2 hours water resistant".

This sunscreen would be good for exercise (when you're sweating) or for a day out swimming, but is completely useless for daily use.

the sunscreen is only slightly more whitening than the Oasis family SPF30, but it's hardly noticeable IMO and wasn't an issue for me.

Reply from Oasis Beauty NZ

Hi Geoffrey, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you. The Ultra is a different formulation to the SPF30 and is a bit harder to get off but this is a compromise we had to make to get the highest UVA & UVB ratings attainable.
