Dermatologists recommend a SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, of 30 during daylight hours. The American Cancer Society recommends a SPF of 15. Even indoors experts recommend using sunscreen because the windows in the environment you are in do not provide sun protection. The use of a sunscreen is recommended on overcast days due to the fact that harmful sun rays are actually stronger. Please take note that it is very important to get your recommended amount of Vitamin D3 each day with at least 50% of your skin exposed for 15 minutes. But what about the current chemical sunscreen bans in Hawaii due to coral reef formations being bleached? Or the new FDA proposed bill that if passed will ban most chemicals in most sunscreens in the marketplace? Physical Mineral Sunscreens are the solution with Non-nano Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. Zinc Oxide can be found in diaper rash ointments, so it is even gentle enough for babies.
Our antioxidant-rich Physical Mineral Sunscreen is crafted with Non-nano Uncoated Zinc Oxide, 100% USDA Certified Organic Tropical Fragrances, Fair Trade Organic Nut and Seed Oils and Raw Ivory Shea Nut Butter. Our sunscreen feels more like a body butter than a sunscreen without a heavy white cast or the typical grimy feeling of many conventional drugstore sunscreens. It is coral reef, marine life and sensitive skin safe and will not sting your eyes either! Our Physical Mineral Sunscreen, is formulated with biodegradable, non-toxic ingredients that naturally contain broad spectrum sun factor protection for 2 hours per application. Non-nano Zinc Oxide reflects UV rays like tiny mirrors instead of soaking into your pores and bloodstream like chemical formulas.

Here are easy tips provided by the FDA for protecting your skin when exposed to sunlight.
- Limit time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun's rays are most intense.
- Wear clothing to cover skin exposed to the sun such as long-sleeve shirts, pants, sunglasses, and broad-brimmed hats.
- Use broad spectrum sunscreens with SPF values of 15 or higher regularly and as directed.
- Reapply sunscreen at least every two hours, and more often if you're sweating or jumping in and out of the water.
