Sunshine Balm SPF 30
Say hello to the UK’s first handmade, zero waste, natural, vegan suncream with SPF 30!
Made from 100% natural ingredients, this silky smooth balm glides onto the skin and offers high protection from UV rays, while nourishing and moisturising. Carefully formulated for face and body, this suncream will protect even the most sensitive skin and is even suitable for babies!
Containing two of nature’s most powerful UV blockers - zinc oxide and cold pressed golden carrot seed oil - this vegan suncream leaves minimal white cast, thanks to the inclusion of fine milled cocoa powder, which allows it to sit undetectable on all skin types and colours, whilst still ensuring high protection from the sun’s harmful rays. With a vegan formulation, this sunscreen is cruelty free and contains no micro-plastics or ingredients and is coral reef safe! For a perfectly plastic free suncream, please go for the 100g zero waste option.

HOW TO USE
Scoop out a generous amount using fingers or, for best application, using one of our mini wooden spoons. Spread over exposed areas on face or body. Reapply every hour for maximum protection. Avoid the sun between 12-3pm. Remove thoroughly with an oil cleanser at the end of the day.
How do you calculate the SPF?
SPF preparations have to be sent off to a lab to be tested. It has been through months of rigorous testing by a specialised third party facility. They do a series of tests and come up with an average SPF- in our case it’s SPF 33 (but we label it SPF 30 for simplicity).
This is part of EU guidance on the sale and regulation of cosmetics, which currently governs UK cosmetics. It’s particularly strict for suncreams of course.
So to summarise, our Sunshine Balm has been thoroughly tested and it has all the necessary certificates and is confirmed by a third party to have an SPF of at least 30.
Does this suncream stain white clothing?
As with many suncreams that contain moisturising oil-based ingredients, this balm can stain white clothing. Please feel free to contact us for some tips on how to remove tricky suncream stains!
