Vegan Sun + Surf Balm (100% natural zinc balm) Organic Coconut
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.
Zinc Oxide (non-nano): Creates a chemical free, physical UV barrier.
Candelilla Wax: Creates a water barrier and allows zinc to stick for hours in the surf.
Carrot Seed Oil: Natural SPF, with Beta Carotene and Vitamin E, both powerful antioxidants, they may prevent your skin from burning in the sun.
Red Raspberry Seed Oil: Possesses an exceptionally high proportion of alpha and gamma tocopherols Vitamin E, vitamin A and omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. It can offer the skin broad spectrum protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays.
How to use:
- Use as you would a regular zinc or sunscreen but be mindful to reapply every 2 hours or after water exposure.
- Store away from direct sunlight.
