*This is now a seasonal item. I will make a fresh batch again in the spring (around April 2018). I suggest waiting to order until that time, but if you decide to pre-order, please include a note with your order letting me know you understand it won't ship for at least 3 months.
This sunscreen is made with completely natural ingredients that block both UVB and UVA rays. It comes in a 2 oz. polypropylene twist-tube for easy and safe application at the beach or the pool. The lotion rubs in clear, but may leave a slightly whitish tint; as long as you rub it in evenly, it's very difficult to notice. This sunscreen has been thoroughly blended so you can rest assured you will receive the same effective coverage throughout the tube.
The texture of this natural sunscreen may become grainy due to temperature fluctuations. This is because the cocoa butter naturally wants to separate from the other ingredients. This will not change the effectiveness of the sunscreen and it will still rub in smoothly when in contact with your body heat.
***The last photo with the sunburn is my back. I applied the sunscreen to only the right side of my back and laid outside in full sun for 2 hours. As you can see, the left side burned and the right side did not.***
Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Zinc Oxide (21%, Non-nano), Beeswax, Raspberry Seed Oil, Carrot Seed Essential Oil
+ 2 oz. polypropylene twist up tube with screw on cap
+ The primary sunblock ingredient is zinc oxide, which scatters and reflects the sun's rays off of your skin. It is supported by raspberry seed oil, which one study has shown can both scatter and absorb light rays, preventing them from reaching your skin.
+ This sunscreen has only been tested for 2 hours, but may last longer depending on your skin, your activity and the weather. I recommend you reapply every two hours.
+ The sunscreen has an earthy, cocoa smell from the essential oil and the cocoa butter.
+ The consistency of the lotion varies from solid to very soft depending on ambient temperature. As long as it is kept in the shade, it will not run or spill, but when in direct sunlight or touching a hot surface, it becomes soft enough to run - keep upright until cool again.
+ This is not specifically a water-proof formula, please reapply after being in the water and after heavy sweating.
+ Carrot Seed Essential Oil may or may not be a sunscreen; I have not found conclusive evidence for this claim, but I have found that it is very soothing and benficial for dry and damaged skin, so regardless of whether it ups the sun protection, it certainly helps keep your skin happy and healthy after skin-stressing exposure to sun, wind and anything else the world throws at it.
+ Can be used all over the face and body, but please use sparingly on the face if you have acne concerns.
+ Be sure to apply and rub in on every area of skin that will be exposed. This sunscreen will only protect areas that have been properly covered with the sunscreen.
