Our Sunscreen Ingredients
14 million kilos of sunscreen end up in the world's ocean every year
Did you know that chemical UV blockers ( such as oxybenzone, butylparaben, octinoxate and 4-methylbenzylidene camphor) commonly used in sunscreens have all been shown to cause coral bleaching?
That's why we have carefully selected a simple list of ingredients that are safe for your body and the environment.
Non-nano zinc oxide
Using non-nano zinc oxide is incredibly important to us! Why? Because it is the safest ingredient for both the environment and your skin.
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil
Moisturising, healing and non-greasy. What more do we need to say really.
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter
Shea butter is obtained from the seeds of the Karite tree (Butyrospermum parkii) common in several African countries. This soft, pliant 'butter' is pressed from the seeds and then purified for use in soaps, cosmetics and toiletries. This product has been ethically produced and sustainably refined to yield a white and practically odourless butter, ideal for use in cosmetics.
Cera Alba (Raw NZ Beeswax)
Beeswax is produced as a by-product of honey. It helps to give our original sunscreen formula its consistency, and stops it from getting too runny in hot weather. It won't clog your pores and it increases the protective action of our sunscreen.
A wax produced from the Candellila tree. This is a vegan alternative to beeswax.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is plant-based and gives our sunscreen its smooth yet non-greasy feel. It's 100% biodegradable and perfectly safe for use.
Made from plant oils such as coconut oil and castor oil, this ingredient is soothing on sensitive skin.
This is another plant-derived ingredient and is gentle and moisturising on the skin. This ingredient receives the highest score on the EWG scale.
