Tuff Stuff really is, the toughest stuff. Designed for outdoor enthusiasts who face the harshest environmental conditions, our zinc covering cream is your skincare solution.  

This formula uses only natural and nature-identical ingredients. It is broad spectrum and super water resistant to keep your skin protected and hydrated during any land or water-based activity. Compared to lighter everyday sunscreens, Tuff Stuff is a thicker formula and will not rub off with sweat or drip into your eyes while swimming. Tuff Stuff offers the type of coverage you need for activities such as surfing, boating, hiking, working outside, or for those long days relaxing at the beach.

Our covering cream is tinted so you don't have to worry about looking like a 1980s lifeguard. Like all zinc oxide based products, there is a slight white cast to the product on your skin. Our current shade is not a one size fits all and as Green Room expands, it is our goal to make more inclusive tones. Regardless of skin colour though, rest assured that a solid white nose is a thing of the past!

Zinc oxide, a mineral UV blocker, is the most reef-friendly ingredient in comparison to other UV blockers such as Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, ButylParaben, and 4-methylbenzylidine camphor. The metal tin is our choice of sustainable packaging as it can either be re-used indefinitely or completely recycled without any loss in material.

Big shoutout to the girls at Surf Sister in Tofino for their help in developing the concept! Those girls are on the beach and in the water all day long!

Directions

Directions: Tuff Stuff is easiest to apply when warm and soft. You can warm it up by keeping the tin in your pocket or by rubbing the formula in circular motions with your finger in the tin or on the back of your hand. Apply to face and lips with clean, dry fingers. Blend in and layer for more coverage. Keep product out of direct heat and sunlight. Remove with a gentle cleanser or an oil-based product (For Your Face works!). Wipe off and rinse with water. Follow with For Your Face.

Stays put!

I'm a sweater, especially on my nose and forehead, and this stuff stays on and doesn't run into my eyes like most sunscreens. I'm a medium skintone and blends okay, but honestly I will take the comfortable protection over anything.

Tuff Stuff

For me the tough stuff goes on easily when I use it with the face cream, but I am not completely sure if it blocks the sun. I have only been using it for a couple weeks and when I go biking. It seems at nite when I wash my face my face still seems to be “reddish”, but perhaps without it I would be “scarlet”. I would say tuff stuff and I are a work in progress. For me it does blend in nicely. So I am very pleased with it.

Hi Jane!
Love that you are finding it easy to apply your Tuff Stuff and that it blends well. Keep in mind that when you are diluting the formula with the face lotion for more 'daily coverage', that you are also diluting the level of protection and it may require re-application if you are spending a lot of time outdoors. We recommend using Tuff Stuff as is (no mixing with another product) when you are going to be outside in the elements for extended periods of time for maximum protection. The daily coverage method is sufficient for days when you are mostly indoors, running errands, etc. Gotta wear that protection every day!

Pretty good so far!

While I don't live somewhere that is particularly sunny right now, I have tried this product out just around the house and one day of skiing. I love the texture of the cream and the color blends nicely with my skin tone. Excited to put this to the test come spring/summer.

Best sunscreen I’ve ever used

I have super sensitive skin, eczema, acne, and on top of that I’m using prescription retin-a. I’ve tried all types of sunscreens (including expensive, dermatologist given), and at points haven’t even been able to wear any! This is the ONLY sunscreen I’ve ever used that does not have a cast, is not greasy, doesn’t pill/ flake, and does not feel chalky. On top of that the tin is so very convenient, and this sits so well under makeup (or just to make your skin look even and bright!). This is seriously my forever sunscreen, thank you for saving my skin!! I can finally wear sunscreen again with no sensitivity!

Works so well!

I bring this thing everywhere and I works so well. I usually only have to apply it once, even on days where I'm in the water. It also works well under makeup, and the tint compliments medium-light olive skin tone.
