Understand the product

20% Zinc Oxide, a hero superstar sunscreen filter.
The OG when it comes to protecting your skin, trusted by cricketers and surfers alike. The main downside is its usually drying nature and white color. The Harkoi sunscreen solves both these problems.

Tint in 8 different shades
It seemed unfair to us that whitecast in sunscreen was still a problem in today's age. Thus we've formulated 8 shades to encompass the wide variety of Indian Skin Tones.

Primer Base
We've reduced your morning routine to just one step, wash your face, blend the sunscreen and enjoy a smooth matte face all day long! It also helps extend how long the sunscreen will last on your face.

Nourishment from Phytosqualane & Vitamin E
Both ingredients are rockstars when it comes to moisturising and protecting your skin, but they also work universally on all skin types, be it dry, sensitive or oily.


The story behind developing our flagship product, the Mineral Matte Sunscreen was to make a formula so safe that ever pregnant or breastfeeding mothers can use the product. Our product is made up of only Zinc Oxide, the safest possible sunscreen filter, the stuff that surfers & cricketers swear by. Unfortunately, we can't step out with the white paste on our faces like them, and thus the Harkoi team spent 2 years researching and developing a formulation that was hydrating for the skin, soft and luxurious in texture with absolutely zero white cast.

How it works

Solve Hyperpigmentation

Sun protection is one of the major components to solve this problem. Your body itself has healing & regenerative powers where it can work to reduce pigmentation from sun damage or acne scarring, but you would notice that as you age the process gets slower and the external damage that the pollution is causing happens much faster. That is why sunscreen plays such an important role. A tinted sunscreen provides an immediate solution to cover your hyperpigmentation while the iron oxides give you extra protection.

Help Aged Skin

If you are someone who has aging skin, you will notice that wrinkles, crow's feet, and fine lines are starting to develop. While it is a very natural part of aging, if you do want to slow down this process, then sun protection will really help you, because it acts as a barrier, protecting you from the pollution outside. A tinted sunscreen has additional iron oxides for protection while giving you a natural makeup look.

Before & After

Before using the Harkoi Sunscreen your natural skin shines through, but after using the Harkoi Mineral Matte Sunscreen you not only get even coverage, it gives you a nice natural matte-looking finish, and over the course of the day you will get less oily, less shiny and your skin will look radiant. It took us 2 years to perfect the formulation and texture of the formulation.

Why Choose Harkoi?

Our Story

In mid of 2018, our Founder Ritu Bhagat was working in the Beauty Industry in the research and innovation of some of the Biggest Brands out there and realized the gap in the market where all the major decisions were made by white men for brown Indian women.

A: If it's summer, the sunscreen works great by giving you great protection, the primer texture ensures you don't sweat through the product and it is very lightweight on your skin. For Monsoon, the sunscreen works beautifully because a lot of other sunscreens tend to wash away when rainwater hits you, but because this sunscreen has a prime texture it tends to naturally cling to your face very well, meaning you always have sufficient sun protection. For Winters, if you have oily or combination skin types you will absolutely love this product because of the nourishing ingredients like phytosqualane and vitamin e, but if are someone with a dry skin type, we definitely recommend layering a moisturiser underneath.

10) Is the Harkoi Mineral Matte sunscreen transfer proof?

A: Yes! The Harkoi Mineral Matte Sunscreen is transfer-proof, due to its primer texture and the high-quality pigments used. Exceptions to the rule do apply. If you're wearing a white shirt, we would not recommend rubbing your face on it, because then a minimal transfer is possible, but if you are wearing a white mask that doesn't rub on your skin, you will notice no transfer. We've also noticed that a lot of people tend to apply a lot of product at once that they can't blend out. This can also lead to excess product buildup that transfers. Best option is to apply the product in light layers.

11) Does this product oxidize or will color change on my skin throughout the day?

A: No, we use high quality pigments sourced from around the world, making sure that pigments don't oxide throughout the day. Additionally, the pigment level is very sheer in the formulation.
