SHADE all-natural sunscreen, SPF25
Only 1 left in stock
Unscented organic all natural sunscreen SPF25, 100ml.
Naturally mosisturising and sun-resistant to make a highly effective sunscreen. Shade™ contains 4 natural ingredients (sheabutter, coconut oil, beeswax and zinc oxide - a mineral barrier to sun rays). Shade™ is free from the many nasty ingredients (found in over 3500 sunscreens) that protect the skin with chemicals such as oxybenzone and octinoxate.
Ingredients are non-toxic and non-nano (meaning the ingredient particles are below 100 nano meters in size so they cannot be ingested by corals), not tested on animals.
Recyclable aluminum tin.
Shelf Life: once opened, use Shade™ within 12 months, otherwise it has a shelf life of three years.
Your cream may turn to a mottled looking surface if you don’t use it up quickly. This is a natural occurrence when zinc oxide crystals attract one-another because of their polarity, and hang out together in a ‘clumping’ effect. If this occurs, simply rub the cream into your skin really well when you apply it.
A study in 2015 estimated that 14,000 tons of sunscreen are deposited in the world’s oceans each year, putting corals at high risk of catching an infection, potentially playing an important role in coral bleaching in areas visited by tourists. When corals absorb chemicals contained in sunscreens, their reaction is similar to being surrounded by warm water temperatures. The presence of these chemicals in sea water allows viruses to thrive. What’s more, some chemicals are gender-bending, meaning they mimic the effect of oestrogen and can have a dramatic effect on aquatic life, for example turning fish into hermaphrodites.
Shade™ was conceived to take us back to a time when life was simple, and our exposure to dangerous chemicals through personal care and household products was limited. In June 2014, frustrated with the lack of simple, all-natural sun creams on the market, Tania Wedin came up with a really basic but effective cream for her daughter. She knew from speaking to other parents there was a gap in the market for such a sunscreen made of premium quality natural ingredients with none of the dangerous chemicals and irritants. A new product was born, and five years later, Shade™has won awards and is sought after by the relatively new anti-plastic movement. I
