Skin – Skincare Moisturiser with Sunscreen
A light natural lotion for soothing skin and preventing sun damage. Anti-aging ingredients, anti oxidants, High in Vitamins, especially A and E.
All the oils used in this formula are very high in Sun Protection Factor and synergistically they work very well. Many of the natural oils and essential oils included are known to have a high SPF of 20 – 40% UV. Carrot Seed oil is 38 – 40 SPF on it’s own. The reason there is no SPF efficiency claim for this product or on it’s label is because the SPF is determined in a laboratory, and these products are handmade naturally. Just re-apply when neccesary.
This moisturiser is most suitable for normal skin types, those with acne, oily skin and combination skin types. Beneficial to people with acne or rashes, as this lotion helps the healing process whilst protecting skin from the suns damaging rays. In a sunscreen type product an effective barrier is required and this is where active ingredient Zinc Oxide (17%) and Titanium Dioxide (5%) come into it. These two are minerals mined from the ground and block UV rays alongside the other sun protection ingredients within.
Designed especially to be applied to your face, neck and shoulders after cleansing in the morning.
If you are sweating or swimming, be sure to re apply every 2 hours.
I do not use Oxybenzone.
it is a common ultraviolet filtering ingredient used in many sunscreens, but it’s also a hormone disruptor and an allergen. Studies found it in 70% of non-mineral sunscreens that have been evaluated this year. You should seek to buy sun protection with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that are natural minerals, which are much safer sunscreen ingredients. (Which I do)

Physical UV protection (in the form of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) can’t be beat when it comes to shielding skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Many derms prefer these blockers, which act as a physical barrier between UV rays and your skin, versus chemical sunscreens (common ingredients are avobenzone and oxybenzone), which act as filters to reduce UV penetration to the skin.
Keep refrigerated for longer life. Use within 2 years.
