We know how tough it can be to sit around waiting for sun block to sink in, especially if you have children with you. That’s why we love our suntan lotion so much: because it’s mineral-based it’s effective immediately! It also goes on smoothly, so there’s no need to waste time wrestling with the kids to apply it.
Not all sunscreens are safe for the environment, but ours is completely eco friendly. You can use it in Eco parks, it’s reef-safe, and it will not harm marine life. Are we bragging a bit? Maybe, but with sunblock this good it’s tough not to.
How To Use
Step One: Pick the perfect sunny spot to visit. Pack a snack and your mineral sunscreen.
Step Two: Apply your sunscreen as soon as you reach your destination. Pour a generous amount into the palm of your hand, then massage into all exposed areas. Don’t be stingy (we recommend using a full ounce with each application to ensure effectiveness), and don’t forget those easy to overlook locations (we’re looking at you, back of the neck and top of the nose). Repeat these steps for any children in your care.
Step Three: Sit back and relax or get out there and enjoy the water. There’s no need to wait!
Step Four: Reapply every two hours, or if you notice your skin starting to turn pink.
Question: Is this an organic sunscreen?
Answer: Our sunscreen is not certified organic. The USDA no longer allows sunscreens to be certified organic. This is because the active ingredients are considered inorganic compounds (or minerals). However, we use organic ingredients whenever they’re available. Our sunscreen includes organic aloe vera leaf juice, organic safflower oil, organic castor oil, organic cocoa seed butter, and organic cucumber extract.
Question: What kind of sunscreen SPF does this product offer?
Answer: This is an SPF 25 sunscreen.
Question: What is the difference between sunscreen and sunblock?
Answer: There are two basic types of sunscreens: chemical and physical. A chemical sunscreen absorbs the sun’s radiation, keeping it from harming your skin. A physical sunscreen (also known as a sunblock) physically blocks out ultraviolet radiation.
Question: Is this a good sunblock for my face?
Answer: Well, you could use it on your face, but you can do better! Try using a sunscreen specifically created for the face to get the best results.
Question: Is this a good sunscreen for sensitive skin?
Answer: We don’t let ingredients that irritate the skin (like parabens, oxybenzone, or chemical fragrances) anywhere near our products. Without all that junk, our sunblock is a great choice for sensitive skin.
Question: How does this product compare to Banana Boat sunscreen?
Answer: Take a peek at the ingredients list on your average bottle of Banana Boat, and the first item you’ll likely see is “water.” We think it’s pretty ridiculous to pay for a bottle half-filled with something you could get out of the tap. Banana Boat and other large store bought brands use chemical active ingredients to protect your skin, as well as chemical fragrance, and toxic preservatives. Oh, and their sunscreen also relies on dimethicone, a suspected toxin. Fun.
Question: Is this a mineral powder sunscreen?
Answer: It is not in powder form actually; but is in the consistency of a lotion. We use zinc oxide in our sunscreen to provide physical protection from the sun.
Question: Mineral sunscreen vs. chemical sunscreen: how do the two stack up?
Answer: Mineral sunscreen sits pretty on the top of your skin, protecting you from radiation and washing off when it’s done. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, are absorbed into your skin. If your chemical sunscreen contains toxic chemicals, those ingredients are sinking right into your body.
Question: How does this product compare to Neutrogena mineral sunscreen?
Answer: Well, they’re both physical sunscreens, but the similarities end there. Neutrogena’s sunblock is another product with a lot of water in it. It also contains dimethicone, the same suspected toxin that you’ll find in Banana Boat products.
Question: Would you recommend your mineral sunscreen for kids?
Answer: Absolutely! We use it on our own kids. It goes on fast (even when kids are feeling extra wiggly), and you don’t have to wait a half hour to go swimming like so many other sunblocks require.
Question: Is this a good sunblock for babies?
Answer: If your baby is under six months it’s best to keep them out of the sun altogether. If your little one is a little older, though, you can use our sunblock on them safely.
Question: Could you point me towards some relevant sunscreen reviews?
