SUN PROTECTION FACTOR 15
Organic Sun has been independently tested and rated SPF15 to NZ/AU and EU standards. This means it filters 93% of UVB rays providing a sun protection factor of 15. The rating number relates to how much longer you can stay in the sun without your skin burning. So if your skin would normally start to burn after 15 minutes, then SPF15 gives you 3.75 hours of protection. As with all sun protection products, it should be reapplied after two hours and after swimming/towelling or heavy exercise.
ISO 244443 and 24444 compliant.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
For sun protection: Rub in hands and apply to body and face 20 mins prior to heading outdoors. Reapply every two hours or as required. For a ‘clear’ zinc finish, massage into skin and allow to ‘soak in’ for ten minutes before rubbing in again.
For soothing sensitive skin: Apply to skin and leave overnight. Our bodies enter healing mode when we sleep, so you can relax and dream sweet dreams while your body and Organic Sun work their magic together. Wake feeling nourished and nurtured. Highly recommended for soothing sunburn.
As a replenishing skin food barrier: Apply day and night to the body and face to assist the skin to protect and nourish. The cooling lavender and additional native botanicals help relax your body’s largest organ, the skin, while the raw cacao and natural zinc provide a much needed antioxidant boost. Apply directly to skin that has experienced rubbing and chafing for additional nourishment and support.
Use within 6 months of opening.

ORGANIC COCONUT OIL
We use raw, unrefined organic coconut oil to nourish and protect your skin. Quickly absorbed, coconut oil forms a lightweight barrier on the skin that helps to retain moisture. It is rich in proteins that keep your skin healthy and rejuvenated and leaves it feeling soft and smooth to the touch.
We use unrefined, Fair Trade, organic Shea butter to richly moisturise and hydrate your skin. Packed with natural vitamins A and E and fatty acids, Shea butter helps to stimulate the production of collagen – an essential protein in maintaining supple and radiant skin. It also helps smooth and soften wrinkles and fine lines.
We use 100% pure, locally produced beeswax which creates a barrier to seal in moisture, protecting your skin from the elements while allowing it to breathe. Rich in vitamin A, it improves skin hydration and promotes cell regeneration. Beeswax has powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities, which help to prevent skin damage and irritation.
We use 30% uncoated non-nano zinc oxide to provide effective and safe protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. The natural mineral properties of zinc create a physical barrier on the skin to scatter ultraviolet rays and prevent sun damage, photo-aging and wrinkles. A natural astringent, zinc oxide reduces acne-causing bacteria and minimizes pores, so you don’t need to worry about breakouts. It also helps treat and prevent skin irritations and burns.
ORGANIC RAW CACAO
We use organic raw cacao. Why? In addition to providing a natural coloured tint to soften the bright white of the zinc oxide, studies show using raw cacao on your skin provides many of the same benefits as eating it.
Eating cacao regularly has been shown to extend your ability to not get sunburned by almost double and may also protect against the harmful UV rays that cause cancer. The high levels of antioxidants in cacao prevent free radicals from damaging the skin and help repair skin damage and premature aging. Rich in magnesium, a potent anti-inflammatory, cacao also improves your complexion by soothing redness and blemishes. And it smells delicious!
We use pure, high quality essential oils and carefully selected native botanicals for nourishment of your body, mind and soul. Our products are safe to use due to the 1% essential oil dilution of each individual oil.
We use Lavender because it is well known as a natural healer for the treatment of burns. It helps relieve the sensations of burning and swelling and can encourage new tissue formation. Lavender promotes relaxation, it also has cooling properties and the smell is divine.
We use Chamomile to help cool your body, it both hydrates and moisturizes your skin. Chamomile also draws out any feeling of burning, calms inflamed skin, soothes and conditions and helps repair sun damage.
We use Myrrh to support your skin’s health. Due to its very powerful antioxidant properties, Myrrh is great for the skin, it can slow down signs of aging and help to repair damage.
Our carefully selected combination of oils, native botanicals and vibrational extracts can help to
- release fears, tension and promote self-acceptance
