The Good Stuff in Hello Sunshine Natural Sunscreen:
Zinc oxide is a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA & UVB rays. Zinc Oxide is the safest and most effective active sunscreen ingredient to give broad spectrum protection.
Like coconuts themselves, coconut oil is rich in many proteins. Coconut oil has a natural SPF and is a great protecter. Coconut oil is a brilliant moisturiser for all skin types, especially dry skin and is safe for babies and kids making an excellent nappy and skin cream. It also speeds up the healing process of bruises by helping to repair damaged tissue, it penetrates deeply and is nutrient rich. We adore coconut oil for its therapeutic activity and use it as a base of many of our products.
Beeswax has a number of benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe. It forms a protective barrier on the skin to guard against irritants and lock in moisture. We use beeswax in Hello Sunshine to help our water resistance. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, beeswax doesn’t suffocate the skin and won’t clog the pores. It is excellent to use for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. We have chosen to use beeswax for its skin healing properties. It’s also antibacterial and soothes tender skin! Bees are amazing and are in great danger around the world. We adore and respect our bees!
Castor Seed Oil
Castor Seed Oil is a vegetable oil created by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant with a natural SPF of around 5.6 providing natural protection from oxidative damage. Castor Oil contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants making is a great addition to Hello Sunshine.
Natural Sunscreen FAQ:
Is your sunscreen preservative free?
Yes. We don’t use any chemical or synthetic preservatives in hello sunshine… and by that we mean Nothing. Zero. None. Nada. Zilch. Zip.
Does your sunscreen contain parabens?
Absolutely not. We don’t believe in using parabens within any of our product range. Parabens are possible endocrine disrupters and while they are what gives the sunscreen a smooth glide on finish we believe we have been able to achieve this by using naturally based ingredients like beeswax and fractionated coconut oil.
Does this sunscreen stain clothes?
It should not stain clothes since it does not contain organic solar absorbers which are renowned for fabric staining. However, this is fabric dependent and we encourage you to test this for yourself as we cannot offer guarantees about clothes staining.
Is your sunscreen nano or non-nano?
We have chosen a zinc oxide within our sunscreen that is not a nano zinc oxide. However, the sunscreen may contain nanoparticles. To explain, all powders contain nanoparticles in small amounts, every zinc oxide source will contain low concentrations of sub nanoparticles, this has always been the case. The zinc oxide that we use is called ‘micronised zinc oxide’, this means that it is not predominantly nano. We have chosen the highest quality zinc oxide that we have been able to source for our sunscreen.
Is your sunscreen water resistant?
Yes, but as per instructions needs to be re-applied frequently after swimming.
From what age can I use hello sunshine?
Hello Sunshine is the perfect natural sunscreen for babies. It can be used safely from 6+ months.
Is your sunscreen TGA approved and tested?
Is Hello Sunshine ‘reef friendly?
There is some scientific evidence that oxybenzone, a sunscreen active, could be contributing to coral bleaching. We don’t use oxybenzone in any of our products and we don’t use any oxybenzone in Hello Sunshine Natural Sunscreen.
