A natural lotion to protect & heal skin from sun damage

Our natural sunscreen helps protect skin from sun damage without any of the toxic chemicals found in conventional options. It is gentle enough for everyday use, even for children and those who have sensitive skin.

Zinc oxide gives this lotion it’s sun blocking power. It creates a protective layer that helps to reflect harmful UVA and UVB rays away from the skin.

Green tea has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It encourages the healing of skin cells and can prevent premature aging, wrinkles, and sun damage. Rose soothes skin and helps to heal sunburn.

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 a humectant, which means that it attracts water molecules to help skin stay hydrated. Beeswax is also rich in vitamin A, a nutrient that is essential to skin health. Applied topically it boosts the appearance of skin by helping to reduce wrinkles and fade age spots.

To use: apply liberally to skin prior to sun exposure. Reapply as needed, especially if sweating heavily or swimming.
