Sunscreen is an item everyone should have in their bag, without having to lather their skin with chemicals.
Whether you want to build a natural, safe tan or protect yourself from the sun all together, our Sun Crème is a fantastic holistic choice.
One of our customers Hannah, puts it best, "...blends easily and doesn't leave a chalky film unlike many other sunscreens. 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 extra protection the skin from the sun.
- Candelilla Wax (Vegan!) provides a layer of sun protection and locks in the coconut and safflower 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 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 sun block + Myrrh Essential Oil contains an SPF 20 and provides an extra dose of protection
Ingredients to look out for in generic sunscreens -
Most generic sunscreens contain the following ingredients:
- Oxybenzone, a chemical that disrupts hormones
- Methoxycinnamate or Octinoxate
- Padimate O/PABA
- Nano mineral particles (the Zinc Oxide used in our Sun Crème is non-nano)
Along with massive damage to the skin, these ingredients are destroying the ocean reefs.
