Remember when life guards had white gloppy paste smeared all over their noses? That was zinc oxide, an inorganic substance that harmlessly sits atop your skin and helps absorb and block harmful UV rays. Our Happie Coconut Natural Sunscreen uses that same burn-saving substance, but we've formulated it in such a way that it rubs in easily, and nearly completely. Safe for Reefs, Lakes, Rivers and your skin too.
Zinc oxide is the Environmental Working Group's first choice for sun protection. It's stable in sunlight and provides greater protection from UVA rays than titanium oxide or any other sunscreen chemical approved in the U.S. (www.ewg.com).
Our zinc oxide is non-nano and provides strong sun protection with few concerns; it's a powdered mineral that doesn't break down in the sun, sitting on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting and absorbing UVA and UVB rays. It's coral-reef safe, ocean safe and safe for aquatic life.
Our natural sunscreen is made with organic ingredients and non-nano zinc oxide. This organic sunscreen will provide sun protection and moisturize and hydrate your skin all at the same time! Our sunblock sunscreen is made without GMO's, parabens, phthalates, fillers, dyes, artificial ingredients or anything else that would make you cringe or wonder what it was. While our best guestimate as to the equivalent SPF protection your Happie Coconut Natural Sunscreen will provide somewhere in the 15 range (please note that we have not laboratory tested this sunscreen, and that we make no warranties or guarantees regarding its exact SPF rating). Always use caution and common sense when spending extended periods of time under the sun, and we suggest you test the efficacy of your Happie Coconut Natural Sunscreen with your own skin tone in short stints before deciding how effectively it works for you. We have tested it out and reapplied every 2-3 hours or after spending time in the water.
Our sunscreen comes in a 2 oz re-usable tin.
*Please Note: Beeswax provides a superior barrier from water & sweat but we would still recommend using caution and reapplying to be on the safe side. A little goes a long ways. Our 2 oz beeswax sunscreen will last one child approximately 3 months. Keep out of extreme heat and direct sun. If you happen to get it too hot it can start to liquify but it will resettle once cooled.
