The Good Stuff in Hello Sunshine!
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.
Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis). We use castor oils because of it’s high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids. Castor oil has many powerful benefits on the skin and we use it because of it’s natural protection.
Beeswax is a beautiful an natural wax made by bees that gives hello sunscreen its water resistance.
Coconut oil has a natural SPF and contains antioxidants that help protect the skin from harmful radiation from the sun.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated coconut oil, also called “liquid coconut oil,” is a form of the oil that has had the long-chain fatty acids removed. Just this one change makes the oil liquid at room temperature, and extends our sunscreen’s product’s shelf life while providing added protection.
Carnauba wax comes from the leaves of the carnauba palm, a plant that grows in northeastern Brazil. In hot, dry weather, the palm secretes wax to protect its leaves from damage. We use it in our sunscreen for natural skin protection
Simmondsia chinensis oil (jojoba)
Jojoba Oil is full of nutrients and antioxidants, and also helps tame inflammation, soothe sunburn, and is gentle and protective on the skin
Natural Vanilla Flavour
We use a food grade natural vanilla which is made from vanilla beans soaked in alcohol. This gives our sunscreen a very subtle sweet scent.
Is your sunscreen preservative free?
Yes. We don’t use any chemical or synthetic preservatives within 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 with using naturally based ingredients like silica 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 nano particles. To explain, all powders contain nano particles in small amounts, every zinc oxide source will contain low concentrations of sub nano particles, this has always been the case. The zinc oxide that we use is called micronised, 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.
What age can I use hello sunshine from?
Hello Sunshine can be used safely from 6+ months.
Is your sunscreen tested?
Yes but only on humans, not animals. Hello Sunshine is listed on the ARTG (Australian Register Therapeutic Goods)
Is Hello Sunshine ‘reef friendly?’
There is some scientific evidence that oxybenzone, a sunscreen active, could be contributing to coral bleaching. We don’t and will never use oxybenzone in any of our products.
Does Hello Sunshine contain any synthetic fragrance?
No. Our sunscreen and sunstick smells delicious because we use an actual food grade vanilla. We chose not to use any synthetic fragrance within our products and we’ve chosen to use something that is so safe it’s actually edible! (Although we do not recommend eating our sunscreen to find out!) Our sunscreen has a very mild, sweet scent and both kids and adults give it 2 thumbs up.
