This vegan, environmentally conscious product comes with a disclaimer: DO NOT use a handmade sunscreen unless you are 100% comfortable with the idea. It is your choice. You’re responsible for your own sun safety, which includes but is not limited to:
+ limiting sun exposure between the hours of 10am-3pm (if you live in Australia)
+ reapplying sunscreen every 2hrs
+ wearing a hat, long sleeves, sunnies etc.
+ keeping in the shade where and when possible…
This natural Sun + Surf Zinc formula has been tested on my family and many of my friends who have boasted about how effective it is. I feel 100% comfortable using this formula on myself, partner and my two beautiful boys but I also use common sense.
There are so many warnings out there when using handmade zinc or sunscreens and that has everything to do with the fact that some people are not sensible and do not follow the recommendations, like the list above. For me, weighing up the negative effects of the chemicals used in commercial zinc and sunscreens, and the potential ineffectiveness of handmade zinc and sunscreens, it’s an easy choice.
Can be applied everywhere especially the face, lips, nose and neck.
