Mineral Sun Care Saviours

Hey, beautiful!

Apparently, Summer is nearly here (although it’s looking pretty wintery outside right now) and that means it’s time to shake up your sun care routine!

Whether you’re planning on making the most of the British sunshine (which has been amaaaazing lately – not so much today, typically!) or jetting off on holiday to some sunny island, our mineral sunscreen range has got you covered, literally!

Thanks to naturally-derived, active ingredients zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, our mineral sunscreens prevent burning and premature ageing from the sun, while being kinder to skin and the environment too. It’s time to make chemical sunscreens a thing of the past.

All our suncare range is:

  • –  100% mineral sun protection        
  • –  Free from toxic chemicals        
  • –  Broad spectrum (UVA/UVB protection)
  • –  Kinder to the environment            
  • –  Gentle on sensitive skin          
  • –  Water resistant

Skin Shade – SPF 15, 30 and 50
Say hello to the next generation of mineral sunscreen!
Skin Shade – available in SPF 15, 30 and 50 – is your essential shield against the sun this summer. With Australian Kakadu and illawarra plum extracts to keep your skin soft and hydrated and Vitamin E-rich kahai oil to keep your skin looking youthful, plus the clever roucou oil, which is 100 times richer in beta-carotene than carrots, to provide added protection against UV rays, this multi-tasking skin-loving high protection sun care is all you need to get you through the summer months.

Tinted Skin Shade – SPF 50
During the summer months we all like to opt for a lighter foundation which provides sun protection.
Available in two shades (light / medium & medium / dark) our Tinted Skin Shade is our all-in-one holiday staple for protecting, hydrating and perfecting. It delivers all the goodness of a broad spectrum mineral sunscreen, but with sheer, lightweight coverage that’s natural-looking and water resistant too! This beach bag must-have is brimming with extracts of passionflower oil and Australian aniseed myrtle, which help retain skin’s natural moisture and eliminate free radicals. What’s more, its hero ingredient, wild hibiscus flower, helps prevent the breakdown skin’s elastin to actively combat the ageing process. No wonder it’s nicknamed the botox plant!

Sun Balm – SPF 50
Perfect for those days when you get caught out in the sun and need protection fast, Sun Balm is your new, pocket-sized, BFF.
Supercharged with tamanu oil,  our sun balm helps to accelerate the skins healing process, promoting the repair of skin over-exposed to UV rays. Vitamin E and rosemary leaf oil help shield the skin from free radicals too.
It’s our go-to for protecting those vulnerable areas prone to burning, like your nose, ears and toes as it guards against both UVA and UVB, plus, there’s no need to worry about white patches thanks to its clear, lightweight, balmy formula that smoothes effortlessly into skin.  It’s the perfect size to pop in the pockets of your sun dress, too!

Sun Soothe
And let’s not forget after sun!
The best way to keep skin healthy following sun exposure is to treat it to a cooling lotion. Sun Soothe is uniquely formulated with moisture-replenishing ingredients that wrap skin in a soothing embrace – a blend of aloe vera juice and menthol work instantly to cool and relieve redness, while the eucalyptus oil and vitamin E deeply moisturise. Even the most sun parched skin will feel revived and refreshed, while your tan stays gorgeous for longer!
So what are your plans for the summer months? I’m pretty certain we’ll be hitting the southern beaches at some point…. and we still have to take Boe to Crosby beach for an ice cream, so we’ll be stocking up on the Sun Shade range – because it’s not full of nasty ingredients or harsh chemicals, it’s completely safe to use on the kids too, which is always a bonus 😉

**Did you know that around 4,000 to 6,000 tons of sunscreen washes off swimmers into the ocean worldwide each year? Oxybenzone, which is a common ingedient in chemical sunscreens has been linked to the bleeching of up to 10% of coral reefs across the globe. So it’s worth making the switch to mineral sunscreen, not just for your skin, but also the planet too…..

All our sun Care range is available individually or as part of a Discovery Kit – £40 for the Skin Shade Sun Protection – SPF 30 & 50 and Sun Soothe Cooling Aftersun Lotion. You can add the Sun Balm (20ml) to the kit for £10 extra!
