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. Because this is a thicker formula, Tuff Stuff stays put and will not rub off with sweat or drip into your eyes while swimming. 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.
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!
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 formula! Those girls are on the beach and in the water all day long!
Directions: 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.

"My dad notoriously burns no matter how much sunscreen he wears when he goes fishing in Costa and when I got him to try your zinc, it was the first time ever he didn't burn!! He was so stoked and wants to get more when he gets back to Canada." - Sam
“I swear to god this is the best natural zinc I’ve ever used…” – Nessie
“I loooooovvveedd your zinc. It was so good in Mexico. It stayed on well, I didn’t break out, and I didn’t even a get a burn once.” – Tiff
“Don’t get me started on the zinc sunscreen. I can’t live without it.” - Ashley
“My skin doesn’t even feel dry from today. It’s like the zinc made a barrier.” - Jenny
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!
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.
Love using this zinc based product, it’s so matte unlike so many face sunscreens so you aren’t left looking a shiny sweaty mess! Also as a new breastfeeding mom I’m very conscious of what goes on my skin especially because baby also loves kissing my face!
Making the switch to a more sustainable period product can feel daunting. Change is scary, we know! We've done some research and compiled a list of some basic menstrual products that are easily obtainable and incredible for us AND the environment.
