Safe Sunscreen

Regular price $15.00

Most sunscreens are filled with endocrine disrupting chemicals that aren't actually effective against UVA and UVB anyway. The only safe suncreen is a mineral based one (we use zinc oxide) and the particles of the zinc oxide need to be at least 80 nm to be considered safe (or "non-nano-particle"). Our zinc oxide is 150 nm, meaning it is safe for everyone in your family!

We make ours at a 30 SPF. Safe suncreens must be reapplied after getting wet, overly sweaty, or after 4 hours in the sun. Any suncreen that claims it is waterproof, a higher SPF, or lasts longer is using something fishy! Caveat Emptor!

Our sunscreen is a simple formula with no extra chemicals or fragrances added. 

Since we eschew shelf stabilizers, homogenizers and other endocrine disrupting chemicals, some separation may eventually occur in a natural lotion such as this one. If this happens to you, simple shake vigorously to re-emulsify. Voila!

30+ SPF Sunscreen comes in a 4 ounce glass pump lotion bottle.

You could be allergic to a plant, a plant family, honey, or another ingredient in a formula just like you could be allergic to a food. Use standard commonsense precautions when trying new things.

Standard required disclaimer for the USA:
The statements made here have not been approved by the FDA. These statements are not intended to diagnose, prevent, treat, or cure any disease or replace advice from a health practitioner.

This notice is required by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for herbalists and people like me but not big pharma, who is in bed with the FDA. After umpteen million product recalls, birth defects and deaths, big pharma still doesn't have to label like this- even though the ingredients in this product has been used safely for much longer than any pharmaceutical preparation has. Just sayin'.

Standard required disclaimer for Canada:
If symptoms persist or worsen, consult a health practitioner.
