Our homemade sunscreen recipe relies on a physical barrier that stays on the surface of the skin rather than penetrating through as most chemical sunscreens do.
This Natural olive oil based sunscreen is designed for everday use on both face and body. Lightweight, non-greasy and easy to apply, this reef-friendly sunscreen is also suitable for use on children.
Natural oils are known to have a level of SPF protection.
Olive Oil: SPF 6-8
Coconut Oil: SPF 5-10
Cocoa Butter: SPF 6-15
Zinc Oxide: SPF 2-20 depending on how much is used.
We use ‘Non-Nano Zinc Oxide’ which stays on top of the skin as compared to ‘Nano Zinc Oxide’ that can go deep into the layer of skin. That’s not safe, and it leaves the top layers of skin unprotected.
