Shade All Natural Sunscreen only uses 4 ingredients:

Shea Butter – We’ve used 100% natural, Soil Association certified organic unrefined Shea Butter in our formula. Known to be exceptionally good for your skin, we knew shea would have to be an essential ingredient in ShadeTM!

Coconut Oil – We know just how healthful this amazingly versatile oil is. It is also has a natural, although low, SPF, and we have chosen to use our favourite CoconoilTM Unrefined Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (also Soil Association certified) for our ShadeTM formula.

Beeswax – Completely non-toxic, beeswax locks in moisture, has excellent water-repellant properties and is a naturally nourishing moisturiser as well as being an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and a germicidal antioxidant. We have selected premium pure, unrefined beeswax for ShadeTM.

Zinc Oxide – Widely acknowledged as offering the safest, broadest-spectrum sun protection possible, we have added a premium quality uncoated, non-Nano Zinc Oxide, which also has a cooling, slightly astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial and protective action on the skin, making ShadeTM a perfect aftersun also.

 

How To Use:

Apply generously at least 15min before exposure to the sun, and then reapply regularly at least every 2 – 3 hours or after exposure to water or after sweating. If it’s cold and quite firm, rub it vigorously with warm fingertips to make it softer, or scoop some out of the tin and warm it between your hands.

‘Applying generously’ means you need approximately a teaspoon for an adult face, and a shotglass full for an adult body. Be aware that putting an inadaquate amount of sunscreen on effectively square-roots the SPF! So an SPF50 is rendered an SPF7, SPF25 is rendered an SPF5!!

 

How does SPF actually work?

SPF25 means that the protection is 96% – that also means that 4% of rays are still reaching the skin. The ’25’ means that you are approximately protected fro 25 times the length of time it would normally take you to burn, under the same environmental conditions, without any protection whatsoever.

 

Unlike many chemical sunscreens, Shade™ does not contain burn inhibitors which switch off the burning sensation. If you feel you are beginning burn, it’s your body’s warning to you that you have been exposed for too long, and the sensible approach is to cover up by wearing clothing or move out of the sun altogether. Applying more sunscreen only ensures you are still covered for the original 25x timeframe – it does not extend the amount of time you can stay in the sun – those 4% of rays are still doing their damage. It’s important that you listen to your body and its signals – the danger of sunscreens that contain burn inhibitors is that the damage is still being done, but you just can’t feel it – a bit like taking painkillers that mask the pain – ignoring the body’s messages that there is a problem does not resolve the problem.
