Shade All Natural Sunscreen – 100ml
Shade All Natural Sunscreen has four ingredients in it…yes only four, all natural too!
Just shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax and zinc oxide. Amazing!
Suitable for all skin types including people with sensitive skin, Shade All Natural Suncream also nourishes as well as protects. This plastic free natural sunscreen protects your skin from the broadest spectrum of UVB and UVA rays.
This SPF 25 100ml aluminium tin is perfect for quick applications and top ups whilst out and about for the day. It’s conveniently travel sized so you can keep it in your make-up bag or backpack.
Please note- When you use a natural Mineral filter sun cream it is necessary to create layer on top of the skin to protect it, contrary to chemical UV filter which creates chemical UV barrier within the skin, this sun cream will leave a white tinge to your skin when applied, but this is necessary and washes off and wears off.

I love the summer, the smell and the warmth that comes with it. I am a Leo after all. But what comes with those hot summer days also comes the risk of burning!
Sunscreen is such a vital thing to protect us from those strong UV rays but the thought of putting it on my skin not really knowing what is was made from made me not want to wear it at all! And of course there is the plastic bottle excreting toxic chemicals into the cream while it sits innocently in the hot sun. Not anymore….there is now a healthier natural eco-friendly sunscreen, Shade!
Also did you know that sunscreen is extremely harmful to coral reefs? It can even kill young coral reefs and severely damage mature reefs! All of those nasty chemicals that are in the sunscreen will wash off your skin and into the sea where it wreaks havoc on the marine life especially coral.
Coral reefs are an important part of our ecosystem, if they all die (which sadly many of them are) we will be in serious trouble. Many other marine life if not all will also die as coral provides safe habitats, vital nutrients and food for fish as well as other sea life! Our coastlines will also be left unprotected from damaging waves and storms.
This is a huge global issue which can be helped, by making better choices we can all make a difference and help our environment. Our natural sunscreen from Shade won’t harm coral and other marine life, if it does wash off your skin into the ocean it will naturally biodegrade without releasing any harmful chemicals!
Once opened use within 12 months, if not opened it has a shelf life of 3 years.

How To Use
Apply generously at least 15 minutes before exposure, then reapply often at especially after exposure to water and sweating.
Reapply every 20-30 minutes on very hot days.
If the sunscreen is cold, firm or has a bobbly looking surface rub it with warm fingertips to soften and then apply. The bobbly surface is just the zinc oxide molecules clumping together, a natural process due to the nature of the zinc.
