Summer Skin Protectant (includes S&H)
Summer Skin Protectant is a deliciously creamy formula made with 20% zinc oxide. Zinc oxide is known to be an excellent broad spectrum ingredient in physical sunscreen. The benefit of a physical sunscreen, versus chemical sunscreen, is that it is not absorbed into the blood stream and is generally much safer for our natural environments. The zinc in this formula is non nano particle, uncoated zinc oxide.
The other ingredients are organic raw shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, tapioca starch, non GMO vitamin E oil (and lavender essential in lavender skin protectant only).
This product has not been lab tested but the FDA recognizes zinc oxide as GRASE (generally recognized as safe and effective). This product was created for my own family and it is what we use all the time.
A few things to note~ zinc oxide does take a tiny bit more effort to apply and this is standard for any zinc based formula that you use, but in our personal opinion it is still far better than chemicals that are absorbed by the body. 20% zinc formula would roughly equate to 20SPF. Just like everything you'd use out in the sun, this does need to be reapplied often, especially after going in the water. Seriously- do not use it only once during a day in the sun and except any results!
