All natural, reef safe, effective sunscreen that is healthy for you and the earth! 🌎

The most common sunscreens on the market contain chemical filters. These products typically include a combination of two to six of the following active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate. (I can barely pronounce those let alone do I know exactly what they are).

There are also Mineral sunscreens, which are better but are made with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, usually in the form of nanoparticles.
Nano particles are described as anything smaller than 100 nanometers in diameter, or 0.1 micron. When a particle is that small, it can potentially absorb through the skin and farther depending how small.

Many sunscreens also contain the preservative methylisothiazolinone, which the American Contact Dermatitis Society named as its “allergen of the year".
Methylisothiazolinone is used alone or in mixtures with a related chemical preservative called methylchloroisothiazolinone. (Woah! I definitely can't even guess at how to say that one)

Sunscreen chemicals are absorbed into the body and can be measured in blood, breast milk and urine samples.

Recent research done by the EWG (Environmental Working Group) reveals that the chemicals commonly used in sunscreen are endocrine disruptors, estrogenic and may interfere with thyroid and other hormone processes in the body.

Most sunscreens completely block the body’s ability to manufacture Vitamin D, and a vitamin D deficiency comes with its own set of problems, one of them being increased risk for developing cancer.

And here is the kicker! A study in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics reports that:
"Sunscreens protect against sunburn, but there is no evidence that they protect against basal cell carcinoma or melanoma. Safety of sunscreens is a concern, and sunscreen companies have emotionally and inaccurately promoted the use of sunscreens".

Scary, right? The rate of skin cancer continues to rise, right along with the sale of these conventional sunscreens.

Luckily, there is an alternative. There are many natural ways to avoid damage from the sun. 🌞 Avoiding prolonged exposure is number one, but if you absolutely must be outside when the sun is out (me😄), our sunscreen is just about as safe as you can get, is effective, and doesn't block Vitamin D.

The active ingredient is Zinc Oxide - in non nano particle form. This is important as it is not absorbed through the skin. We use an organic mineral made by a company that states -
"Our Zinc Oxide is sourced as 0.24 micron and never below 0.18 micron. That leaves no room for error on size. 
Naturally occurring".
Zinc Oxide provides full spectrum coverage from UVA and UVB long and short waves.  It also has natural anti-inflammatory properties and helps to heal wounds, minor burns, and skin irritations.

Katie Mae's All Natural Sunscreen Stick also contains -

🌞Organic Coconut Oil - naturally occurring sunscreen, carries an SPF of about 5-10.

🌞Organic Beeswax - protects skin against damaging elements, antioxidant, makes this sunscreen waterproof. (Reapply after prolonged times in water)
(*OR* Candililla wax in the vegan version)

🌞Organic Cocoa Butter - aids in keeping skin moisturized when exposed to sun and wind, has a natural SPF of about 6-15.

And that's it! 4 ingredients. 4 simple, easy to pronounce, all natural ingredients. This sunscreens total SPF is around 30. 🌞

Mineral sunscreens work by sitting on top of the skin. They are not meant to be completely blended in. This means that the sunscreen will leave a white/yellowish cast (due to the raw beeswax and zinc oxide) on your skin. You should be able to see it to know that it is applied properly and working.

**A tinted version is available and will include Organic Cocoa Powder in the ingredients as well. It lightly tints the sunscreen so that it isn't as visible on the skin**
