  • $20.00

Looking for a new mineral based sunscreen that will say on during all our activities (in water or on land)? Look no further.

Made with a combination of Macadamia Oil from a neighboring farm, Cocoa Butter from an organic farm in Izabal, raw sustainably harvested Golden Beeswax from San Cristobal el Alto and cold pressed Coconut Oil from the Rio Dulce region infused with fresh French Marigold petals from Tierra & Lavas organic garden help your skin retain moisture and protect against the elements. The fresh organic Turmeric used contains potent anti-carcinogenic compounds and antioxidants and a touch of Vanilla containing Vitamin B adds an uplifting scent. Packaged in a reusable and recyclable plastic-free metal tin (2.1 oz).
 

The primary mineral Zinc Oxide, used in this sunscreen is considered non-allergenic and non-comedogenic. Mineral sunscreen is less likely to irritate sensitive skin since ingredients aren’t absorbed into the skin itself. The cream sits on top of your skin becoming a physical barrier to the sun’s rays and starts protecting your skin immediately after application. Confirmed through rigorous testing, this sunscreen is gentle and safe on all skin types including children, athletes, and outdoor adventurers playing under the sun. Waterproof for up to 90 minutes!

SAFE AND EFFECTIVE

The active ingredient minerals (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) are the only two ingredients currently “generally recognized as safe and effective" in sunscreen by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our non-nano Zinc Oxide means that the particles aren't small enough to penetrate your skin or bloodstream, making it safer for your body and safer for our reefs.

WHAT IS BROAD SPECTRUM

The FDA recommends using “Broad Spectrum” sunscreen so you will be protected from the two types of light that can harm your skin and cause cells to mutate into cancer: ultraviolet-A (UVA) rays can prematurely age skin, cause wrinkles and age spots, and ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays cause sunburn and skin inflammation. Broad spectrum offers more protection than a higher SPF since SPF currently only measures UVB, and very high SPFs decrease UVA protection. Our SPF 15 will protect you from 93% of UVB rays, and although UVA rays are currently not rated, our mineral based broad spectrum sunscreen offers protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
