This sunscreen is made with Lemon eucalyptus, cedarwood oil and citronella to repel mosquitos and gnats. Lemon eucalyptus is really the heavy hitter here. Research has shown that it is one of the best natural mosquito repellents that we can use. Pairing these oil with non-nano zinc oxide, organic mango butter and silky-smooth organic, cold pressed apricot oil makes for an effective sunscreen that goes on light and repels bugs.

This is an oil based sunscreen that is made with organic, raw and cold-pressed ingredients that are:

- 100% plant and mineral based & cruelty-free
- Reef-safe
- Biodegradable
- Naturally water-resistant
- Non-comedogenic

There are 2 different sizes available.
- 1/2 oz mini aluminum tin
- 3 oz large aluminum tin ***COMING SOON!!! 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use back of fingernail or bamboo spoon/spatula (or similar) to scoop out a pea sized amount. Warm between hands to melt sunscreen with body heat then apply to face and gently around eyes. Repeat for body application and apply generously before any sun exposure. Reapply every 1-2 hours as needed. Wear clothing that covers the skin, a hat or seek shade when possible to minimize sun exposure.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a natural sunscreen and should be used within a year of opening or refrigerated when not in use to extend the shelf life. It may become liquid when exposed to heat but this will not reduce its effectiveness. Your sunscreen will return to its original state when removed from the heat. We recommend placing it in the refrigerator after a day out in the sun to reduce graininess.

Every ingredient has a purpose, here's a bit more about them:

- Lemon eucalyptus, cedarwood and citronella oils act as natural bug repellents

- Non-nano zinc oxide is a naturally occurring mineral that provides the only UVA and UVB protection approved by the FDA for children under 6. Non-nano means it isn't small enough to enter your bloodstream through the skin, always look for this when purchasing skincare with zinc oxide in it!
- Mango butter provides water resistance, keeps moisture in the skin helping it look supple and healthy and has some sun protection qualities. 

- Sunflower wax provides water resistance and has rejuvenating properties for the skin.

- Organic, cold pressed apricot seed (kernel) oil is light, easily absorbed and work well for all skin types. 

- Organic aloe vera oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant characteristics and is a good oil-based alternative to aloe vera gel.

- Organic, cold pressed carrot seed oil & raspberry seed oil offer naturally occurring SPF and skin renewing properties

- Concentrated Vitamin E oil derived from sunflowers or olives helps repair skin damage and helps to naturally preserve your natural sunscreen.
