Natural sunscreen that's safe, good for your skin, and made in New Zealand.
Not only does it protect against sunburn, but the gorgeous oils in it also protect against wind burn!
Grab the 30 gram jar size for out and about. Perfect to pop in the nappy bag, wet bag, or hand bag. Keep one in the car too!
The 60 gram jar is great to have for bigger trips, topping up small jars and to last longer through summer. All 4 of my whanau use this all summer long and would only use at most 120 grams. (Which is an option if you would like us to stock the big jar!)
This sunscreen has been independently clinically tested achieving an SPF rating of 90, with broad spectrum coverage against both UVA & UVB rays.
It uses zinc oxide as well as natural oils that naturally provide a barrier from the sun's rays, rather than using chemicals which react with your skin and can cross into your tissue.
Zinc oxide is the only recommended safe broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA & UVB rays. It is also the only FDA recommended sunscreen for babies under 6 months of age.
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 chemicals in their life! Safe to use on face & body. Comes in a glass jar. Spreads well, so a little goes a long way.
Plus, this sunscreen smells divine, and moisturises well too.
Make sure to test patch on skin first. The Cancer Society recommendation with any sunscreen is to re-apply every two hours, and after getting out of water due to rub-off. 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.
Independently tested to and compliant with AS/NZS Standard 2604:2012 and ISO 24443.

Blue Light Filter Glasses
1 in stock
Have you tried these?
These Blue Light Filter Glasses are designed to help block the blue light emitted from our screens. Screen use and duration is up, especially after lockdowns. We are connecting to each other and the world in a new platform. Not only in person but through our phones, tablets and computers.
If you are like us and struggle to avoid screen time at night before bed, maybe these will help you too.
Sleep is so important and not only does screen use late at night affect sleep, so does blue light (being outside in light we are surrounded by blue light, that's why we are circadian by nature). As working parents, we can't avoid screen time before bed all the time so these are our next best option.
