Shade All-natural Sunscreen SPF25
- Shade™ is an entirely natural productand so you may find some tiny little specs in your Shade™ which have come naturally with the unrefined beeswax or shea butter. The coconut oil is very well filtered but we do sometimes find naturally-occuring biproducts of the manufacturing process of the oil in our supplies (i.e. tiny weeny bits of the nut!) Although we endeavour to remove as much as we can, this is a time-consuming task which is done by hand, and we cannot guarantee all 'impurities' will be removed.
- Zinc Clumping Effect You may also see your cream turn from a smooth surface to a rather mottled looking surface if you don't use it up quickly. This again is a natural occurrence and is when zinc oxide crystals attract one-another because of their polarity, and hang out together in a 'clumping' effect. If this occurs, simply rub the cream into your skin really well when you apply it.
- Application Apply generously at least 15min before exposure to the sun, and then reapply regularly at least every 2 - 3 hours or after exposure to water or after sweating. Please read our blog post, "A Word of Warning about Natural Sunscreens" to understand more about how SPF works and what 'adequate coverage' means.
Shelf Life Once opened, use Shade™ within 12 months, otherwise it has a shelf life of three years. We make small batches of Shade™ regularly each week to maximise life of the product from manufacture to customer.
36% SHEA BUTTER
We've used 100% natural, Soil Association certified organic unrefined Shea Butter in our formula. Known to be exceptionally good for your skin, we knew Shea would have to be an essential ingredient in ShadeTM!
36% COCONUT OIL
We know just how healthful this amazingly versatile oil is. It is also has a natural, although low, SPF, and we have chosen to use our favourite CoconoilTM Unrefined Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (also Soil Association certified) for our ShadeTM formula.
Completely non-toxic, beeswax locks in moisture, has excellent water-repellant properties and is a naturally nourishing moisturiser as well as being an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and a germicidal antioxidant. We have selected premium pure, unrefined beeswax for ShadeTM.
18% ZINC OXIDE
Widely acknowledged as offering the safest, broadest-spectrum sun protection possible, we have added a premium quality uncoated, non-Nano Zinc Oxide, which also has a cooling, slightly astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial and protective action on the skin, making ShadeTM a perfect aftersun also.
