“Do you love gardening/hiking/beaching it up but hate getting eaten by 652,987 mosquitoes? Do you want your skin to look and feel like that of an Egyptian God/Goddess? Do you want to know that the stuff you’re putting on the largest organ of your body isn’t straight garbage and chemicals?
Yeah, me too. That’s why I made this sunscreen. It was so hard to find something that worked and didn’t make me look or feel disgusting while using it that I decided to just make it myself.
Lemon eucalyptus is really the heavy hitter here. Research has shown that it is one of the best natural mosquito repellents that we can use. Pairing this oil with zinc oxide, premium mango butter and silky-smooth apricot oil makes for an effective sunscreen that comes out thick but goes on light.
This is an oil based sunscreen that is made with organic, natural and premium ingredients that are…
-Vegan & cruelty-free
-Ocean and reef friendly
-Naturally water resistant
-Non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores so it’s good to use as a facial sunscreen too)
Directions for use:
Always opt for the shade or protective clothing first but, if you’re like me, I just need that sun. Apply your sunscreen every 60 to 80 minutes depending on activity.
This is a natural sunscreen and should be used within a year of opening or refrigerated when not in use to extend the shelf life.
It may become liquidy when exposed to heat but this will not reduce its effectiveness. Your sunscreen will return to its original state when removed from the heat. I recommend placing it in the refrigerator after a day out in the sun to reduce graininess.
Each ingredient has a purpose, here’s a bit more about them…
