Sun Goddess Lotion

$9.50

Moisturizing lotion with SPF 10 & subtle shimmer

This lovely lotion was crafted to moisturize, add a golden glow & protect skin from sun damage. It’s a great daily moisturizer for those living here, in Ecuador, where the sun is so intense.

Gold mica adds a subtle shimmer. Cacao is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It helps to boost collagen, tone & elasticity of skin. Studies have also found that it may be helpful in preventing premature aging and wrinkles caused by sun damage.

Zinc oxide creates a protective layer on the skin helping to reflect harmful UVA and UVB rays away from the skin. It is gentle enough for everyday use, even for sensitive skin.

A blend of nourishing oils & butters moisturizes and rejuvenates skin. Cacao butter is an excellent emollient that softens and soothes. Sunflower oil is easily absorbed into the skin, helping to hydrate skin & improving its ability to retain moisture. It is rich in vitamin E, which helps to protect the skin from premature aging due to sun damage.

Beeswax creates a protective barrier on the skin, helping to lock in moisture. It is also a humectant, which means that it attracts water molecules to help skin stay hydrated. Beeswax is also rich in vitamin A, which boosts collagen production helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
