This version of our popular standard sunscreen has mild insect repelling properties, as well as skin healing properties thanks to the wonders of Kawakawa.
If headed into areas of intense insect activity, I'd recommend using this in conjunction with our natural insect repellent which we have in both a babysafe version & in an essential oil version.
This sunscreen uses zinc oxide as well as natural oils that naturally provide a barrier from the suns rays, rather using chemicals which react with your skin and can cross into your tissue.
Zinc oxide is the only reccomended safe broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA & UVB rays.
All ingredients are 100% natural, and organic where possible. This makes this sunscreen safe to use on babies, people with sensitive skin, and anyone who wants to cut down the amount of harmful toxins in their life! Comes in a glass jar,. Spreads well, so a little goes a long way. ( I can use a large jar on our family all year! )
Plus, this sunscreen smells divine, and moisturises well too.
If looking for a healing kawakawa balm for things such as insect bite relief, cradle cap, dry skin, eczema relief, our kawakawa balm has a stronger concentration of kawakawa than this sunscreen.
Make sure to test patch on skin first. Re-apply every two hours, and after getting out of water. No need to wait 20 mins before going out into sun. Staying in the shade is however still the most effective method of sun protection for people of all ages.
