Natural SUNSCREEN – 2 oz tin // Organic, Non-toxic Ingredients for Natural Sunblocking Properties + Skincare Benefits
Want sunscreen that works, without all the added (scary/harmful/confusing) chemicals? This is it, sun lovers! Our carefully crafted sunscreen is made from organic ingredients + features non-nano zinc oxide (meaning it won’t be absorbed into the skin). We have chosen ingredients that feel great on the skin (bonus: healthy, soft skin) and double as natural sun protecting agents. Read below for how each ingredient functions in this natural sunscreen.
Organic coconut oil, organic Shea butter, local beeswax, almond oil, non-nano zinc oxide, vitamin E oil, organic essential oils of carrot seed + lavender
Coconut oil – Did you know coconut oil has a natural SPF of 10? This earthly oil also feels great on your skin.
Shea butter – Shea butter is also a skincare powerhouse. It has an SPF of 6 and also has fantastic moisturizing properties.
Beeswax – Beeswax plays an important roll in this sunscreen: it increases the water resistance of the sunscreen.
Almond oil – Almond oil has a humble SPF of 5, but our skin still loves it 🙂
Non-nano Zinc Oxide – To understand why its important to have non-nano zinc oxide, first you have to know about the alternative. Chemical sunscreens possess zinc oxide in its nano form – meaning it is smaller and can actually enter the blood stream. Conversely, non-nano particles cannot enter the bloodstream. Sunscreen simply wouldn’t be as strong at protecting your skin from harmful without zinc oxide. It can actually stand alone as a sunblock because it is truly effective against UVA, UVB and even UVC rays. It is what makes the sunscreen white; but fear not, if you rub in thoroughly you won’t notice.
Carrot seed – Carrot seed essential oil has a whopping SPF of 40.
Lavender – Lavender is an added bonus in this sunscreen. It is wonderful for your skin and adds a nice scent.
