100% Preservative & Paraben Free – Family Protection
We are head over heels in love with our Hello Sunshine range! The sunscreen glides on smoothly but is thick enough to stay on for protection. The Facestick is small enough for kids to take to school and keep in their school bags and apply themselves. Also great for the family! Hello Sunshine is free from all synthetic preservatives and parabens. Natural, safe and smells delicious!

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 a highly effective active sunscreen ingredient to give broad spectrum protection.
We only use natural organic beeswax in our products. Beeswax has traditionally been known to help calm and soothe. It forms a protective barrier on the skin to guard against irritants and lock in moisture. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, beeswax doesn’t suffocate the skin and won’t clog the pores. Bees are amazing and are in great danger around the world. Bees are not harmed during this process of the removal of the wax. We adore and respect our bees!
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has a natural SPF. Like coconuts themselves, coconut oil is rich in essential fats. These essential fats are thought to keep the skin healthy and rejuvenated. Coconut oil is often used as a moisturiser for the skin. We adore coconut oil and use it in many of our products.
Organic Carnauba Wax
Carnauba wax is a vegetable wax obtained from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree (Copernica cerifera) known as the “Tree of Life.” Carnauba Wax is known for its beautiful hydrating properties as well as natural protection.
Simmondsia chinensis oil (jojoba)
Jojoba Oil is known to moisturize, soothe and protect. We love that it’s a light oil brimming with vitamin E.
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.
