Directions for Use

At first, it will go on white, but once you rub it in and head into the sun it will melt onto your skin, feel nourishing (as it is!), and will not appear white. Please, apply a generous amount of sunscreen. You WILL look white at first. Then, keep rubbing and it will dissolve into your skin.

The Natural Ingredients I'm made from

Organic Coconut Oil, Apricot Oil, Beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Non-Nano Zinc Oxide and Vitamin E

Why I’m Great

Just like other sunscreens, you should reapply this at least every hour. I add beeswax to this recipe, which helps it stay on in the water, but like many other sunscreens, it will come off with water play (and excessive sweating). For me, reapplying often is a small price to pay to decrease my toxic load.

Also, this sunscreen will ‘set up’ when in cold temperatures and will ‘melt down’ (some) when really hot. None of this affects the function of the sunscreen, at all. If it gets cold and solidifies, put it somewhere warm and vice versa.

How long will this last?

Great question. The Vitamin E gives it pretty good stability, in terms of preservative action. That said, you don’t want to put dirty fingers into your container, which will invite bacteria.

This will last anywhere from 6 months to over a year (or more). I store mine in a dark, cool closet. Also, you can place it in your fridge for even longer keep. Yes, it will ‘set up’, but will ‘thin out’ when you remove it. You’ll know it has gone bad by a funky smell.
***Mineral sunscreens are different than other typical, toxic sunscreens on the market today. This recipe does not contain toxic ingredients that soak into your skin and provide ‘water proofing’. Mineral sunscreens like this do not penetrate your skin. They sit on top of your skin and reflect the sun’s rays. This means that you HAVE to reapply (generously) often.
