Sunscreen is an item everyone should have in their bag, without having to lather their skin with chemicals.

One of our wonderful customers Jen, puts it best, "...blends easily and doesn't leave a chalky film. So glad I purchased. Thank you!"
What ingredients do we use + why?
- Organic Safflower Oil and Organic Coconut oil are the main ingredients. They moisturize in addition to providing protection the skin from the sun. - Yellow Beeswax provides a layer of sun protection and locks in oils. - Zinc Oxide (non-nano) also provides a barrier layer of protection against the sun. Zinc Oxide is a naturally occurring mineral that protects against UVA (aging and cancer-causing) + UVB (burning) rays. The zinc oxide we use will not leave a ghost-white sheen on your skin if rubbed into skin completely. - Red Raspberry Oil which contains an SPF of 45-50 and on it's own, proves to be a fantastic sunscreen + Myrrh Essential Oil contains an SPF 20 and provides an extra dose of protection
What ingredient should we avoid in generic sunscreen?
Most generic sunscreens contain the following ingredients: - Oxybenzone, a chemical that disrupts hormones - Methoxycinnamate or Octinoxate - Padimate O/PABA - Nano mineral particles (our Zinc Oxide is non-nano)
