This sunscreen is a more natural way to stay safe in the sun, without the potentially harmful chemicals found in many commercial versions. Made with Shea Butter and coconut oil, it goes on silky smooth and nourishes your skin. Beeswax makes it water resistant, and the non-nano zinc oxide sits on your skin, forming a protective barrier against the sun. Because it works by physically blocking the sun's rays, your skin should have a bit of white shimmer when properly applied. Coconut oil and beeswax are both sensitive to temperature, so if you find your sunscreen is rather stiff, just place in a warmer location. This unscented sunscreen comes packaged in a 8 ounce, USA-made wide mouth canning jar. The actual weight of the sunscreen is 5.5 ounces. I can't give an actual SPF, but I find it performs like something rated around 35-40 SPF, offering broad spectrum protection from UVA & UVB rays. As both a skin cancer survivor and someone who burns easily (and also works outdoors!), I need a reliable way to protect myself, and this is the only sunscreen I use. I also offer this sunscreen scented with a bug-repelling combination of therapeutic grade essential oils!
