Zausner - Solar Recover Sting Recover Nature's Assault Aid - 2 oz.
Zausner Solar Recover Sting Recover Nature's Assault Aid is a unique all natural blend of dried and refined desert clay, powdered vitamin E, powdered aloe, papain and zinc oxide that can be used to calm down stings from bees, jellyfish, fire coral, and other insects. As water sports enthusiasts they have always carried meat tenderizers with them on their travels. It is the papain or papaya enzyme in meat tenderizer that is the active ingredient; it works on meat by predigesting protein making it tender. Bees and jellyfish sting using a type of protein or protease, hence it's effectiveness.
Here's How Solar Recover Sting Recover Nature's Assault Aid Works:
- Upon initial application of Sting Recover Nature's Assault Aid the papain digests and neutralizes the protease from the sting.
- The powdered aloe, powdered vitamin E and zinc oxide, which is used in calamine lotion for rashes, kick in and calm the skin.
- The clay they use is marketed as a mask for the face. As the clay mask dries it draws impurities, or in this case, poison from the skin. Once the mask has dried it can be washed off.
Zausner's three phase approach is not 100% effective but it was the best solution they've been able to come up with. They sat in marshes and allowed horseflies to bite them, purposely stung themselves with bees, and waded out into a bay, picked up a jellyfish and stung themself. As you can tell, they are quite the maniacs when it comes to testing their products. (By the way, the jellyfish wasn't harmed, just a little angry.)

Applications & Ingredients
Solar Recover's products both have multiple beneficial uses that will improve the health of your skin and hair especially if used daily. The name Solar Recover is now somewhat misleading as Save Your Skin and Save Your Hair (which were initially positioned as sun care products) have now also crossed over into the general personal care arena.
They use them year round. They spray our entire bodies with Save Your Skin every day all year even during the colder months as an antidote for dry skin due to dry heat and chlorine from the tap shower water. It's a great way to moisturize skin daily for women and especially for men who like myself are lazy and far to hairy to bother with smearing cream on their arms and legs. They also use it as an after shave as it works better than anything else we've tried in calming down irritated skin, especially under neck irritation. Charlene is an Esthetician and uses it to calm down irritated skin after waxing her clients. She prefers Save Your Skin to creams for hand moisture because she can use my hands right away after applying it without getting anything she touchs greasy.
In addition to its outdoor uses, Save Your Hair is also a great leave-in conditioner. They also use it daily after showering and towel drying and it can even be used on dry hair to add a little moisture. Many mothers use it on their daughter's hair in the morning to detangle dry knotted hair instantly. Solar Recover makes every effort to use all-natural ingredients in all of their products. Save Your Skin is a perfect example: When they go into a new perspective retail customer to demonstrate it and our other products they spray it directly into their face with their eyes wide open. (They don't recommend doing that for anyone else, but that is how natural they feel their ingredients are.) They search the planet for the purest raw ingredients that they want to come in contact with themselves. They only use hydro steam distilled essential oils and not oils that have been distilled using solvents. They steam distill their own water because they do not trust those who offer distilled water commercially to actually provide them with 100% purified water. In short, they are maniacs when it comes to staying away from contaminants.
Solar Recover's Story
A Business That Found Them...
Zausner's lead product, Save Your Skin, was conceived of a few years ago innocently enough when they owned a tennis club in the Southern California desert where the daytime summer temps reached 115 degrees regularly. After being nuked all day the last thing they wanted to do was to smear sticky aloe products on their skin. So they created a fine mist to rehydrate, the criteria for which was simply to use all natural essential and vitamin oils that they knew was healthy for the skin and to make it smell good.
Even though as a tennis pro they were very tan, they never took their shirt off. So when they went to the beach one day and got sunburned they discovered by accident that the spray calmed down the burn and prevented peeling unlike anything else they had ever used. They began testing it all over the Caribbean on themselves by purposely lying out in the sun and burning themselves with consistent results that saved many a vacation. Hence the slogan "The Only Animals We Test On Are Ourselves".
They typically stayed at smaller resorts where they were able to get friendly with the ownership and management so as to be able to leave bottles of their concoction at the lobby desk for other guests to try with results that had the vacationers begging to buy it from them. Those initial results spawned the name Solar Recover, and lead them to test market Save Your Skin in New York's playground "The Hamptons" in July of 2000 with results that they could have never predicted. A business was born.
A Continuing Passion...
The door was open to pursue their passions in creating great products for their own use. In some ways they are a little selfish in that regard. The good news for the public is that when they do release a new product into the marketplace it has been tried and tested by a couple of maniacs who are very hard to satisfy. The final results speak for themselves as they have gone from 1 product in 2000 to many unique products with many more on the way as the flood gates are now open.
