WARNING - Only apply on normal, clean skin, not if cracked. In the very rare event of irritation, spots or any skin reaction, please discontinue use and contact your doctor if required. A small percentage of users may find this product too 'oily' for their skin.
*Results & appearance on the skin may vary per individual.
How does it work?
UV Radiation is divided into UVA rays and UVB rays:
- UVA rays lead to Aging
- UVB rays lead to Burning
The SPF rating tells you how much UVB protection you have.
SPF50 means it will take you 50 times as long to burn in the sun compared to if you hadn’t worn any sunblock at all. In practice, this means approximately 2 hours of protection.

PPD rating tells you how much UVA protection you have. InZincableTM has a UVA
rating of 16.93 which gives a PA++++ rating as it is above 15. (This value was measured according to the ISO 24443 UVA method).
Melashield TM is UV-stable stem cell-vitamin-tyrosinse inhibitor complex we
designed for people with skin of colour, who's primary skin concern is pigmentation from melasma, sunspots, acne or any scars. The difficulty with traditional treatments has been that the majority of tyrosinase inhibitors cannot be used during the day.
17% Zinc Oxide has been used making this a 100% mineral sunscreen (anti inflammatory) with no penetration of actives or nano-particles into the blood stream. This is why it is safe for pregnancy, children and those with sensitive skin.
We incorporated blue light protection as digital devices may lead our skin to produce free radicals, leading to premature aging.
2021 Consumer Trial Report Highlights
An independent clinical study on 51 subjects, between 30-64 years of age, showed the following results after 4 weeks usage:
> 90% said the product was easy to apply, suitable for their sensitive skin, and
> 88% said they would recommend to friends and family.
> 82% said the product appeared invisible on their skin.
> 73% said the product improved the appearance of their hyperpigmentation.
Why is it good for skin of colour?
This is the only Zinc Oxide SPF50 sunscreen which leaves no 'white cast' on brown and black skin.
Other 'no white cast' sunscreens are typically chemical sun barriers, not physical/mineral.
'N.A.F.E SAFE'- No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance, No Essential Oils - all things which typically irritate and/or dry skin of colour.
PLUS it is only sunscreen which contains Melashield (TM) to help reduce hyperpigmentation, another common concern for skin of colour. Tyrosinase inhibitors (depigmenters) usually cannot be worn during daylight. Our proprietary Melashield stem-cell technology allows you to wear these during the day.
Who is this product for?
For most skin types (normal/dry/combination), sensitive skin, eczema-prone skin & persons over 2 years old.
Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.
People with oily skin can also use this product, however some users with very oily skin may not find this product suitable for them, particularly if in a humid climate or exercising as well.

Directions & Restrictions
After you cleanse and moisturise in the morning, apply max. ¼ to ½ a teaspoon of InZincable to the back of your hand and dot it around your face. Rub it in so you create an even layer across the face.
The product leaves a 'dewy' finish on the skin post drying for a few minutes, after which make-up can be applied.
Re-apply your sunscreen every 2 hours in daylight.
LAYERING: If you are applying other products in conjunction, Inzincable should be the last layer, to give you maximum protection. However, cosmetic treatment products are normally applied at night, so Inzincable is usually not worn on top of anything other than moisturiser or make-up.
We recommend a wide brimmed hat and your Dr V Anti Melasma Sunglasses for additional protection.
Note 1: Shake your InZincable before each use and keep in a bag or under a towel when in the sun. The product may become greasy if not shaken for a while.
Note 2: The product may not be completely 'invisible' if too much is used or is layered on top of other creams.
Note 3: The post application finish on the skin may vary on some oily skin types.

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
I am a trained Human Resource Professional with an MBA in Human Resource Management-Training and Development and have amassed fifteen (15) years corporate experience in that discipline.
I decided to embark on a new career path which led me to be involved in my family's Physiotherapy Clinic. During that period I became very aware of the multi-faceted world of wellness. I settled into the area of skin care and began immersing myself in the vast amounts of available knowledge. Some recommendations therein led me to experiment with my teenage daughter and myself as we both had skin challenges. I can say now that I am beginning to see the best skin of my life and regret not knowing about the regimen earlier.
I am the proud promoter of products and treatments which ensure minimum irritation but maximum efficacy.
The love of skincare has prompted the birth of the business Skincare Approved by G, to share and promote with those persons who believe in following a similar skincare philosophy.
Thank you for allowing me to take you on this journey.
