How to Use:

Face: Apply 1 large pea sized amount to entire face and neck in place of your antioxidant moisturiser to cleansed and/or toned skin. Aim to apply sufficient to allow the botanicals to be fairly well absorbed within about 10 minutes – the formula will continue to absorb excess oil and moisture over time. Dry skin may absorb a further pea-sized amount, oily or combination skin may not, especially if following with foundation. TIP – swap foundation for our mineral concealer to hide imperfections and reinforce SPF. 

Body: Apply as above aiming for 2-3 pea-size amounts per exposed limb and 3 for torso. TIPS: A hat, sunglasses and closely woven natural fabrics provide good alternative sun protection – a T-shirt = SPF 30. Seek shade from direct sun between 10 am and 3 pm.

Time exposure: As a guide for full broad spectrum protection, if your skin reddens after 10 minutes unprotected, then 2 pea-size amounts (SPF 30) should be reapplied after 5 hours and 1 large pea-size (SPF 15) after 2.5 hours. Always reapply after swimming, showering or towelling dry.

NOTE: Direct contact may stain light or white clothing. Rub in a little detergent before laundering as usual.

    Works for some

    Posted by Chris on 13th Sep 2020

    Worked perfectly for my other half but not for me unfortunately (triggered prickly heat rash). The smell is a little too strong and the cream hard to squeeze out of the bottle when a bit cold but it's one of the rare sunscreens that actually protect without nasty chemicals.

    it works, it smells of...

    and doesn't hurt my sensitive skin. i did find it quite hard to wash off the collar of a linen vest which only tolerates low temperatures, but am sure that's not just an issue with this kind. perhaps I will just have to get better at putting it on.

    Too little too...

    Posted by Afonso Cabral on 17th Aug 2020

    The cream seems effective in protecting from the sun but it is too expensive for just 50 ml a little definitely does not go a long way meaning it lasts nothing after only a couple of days in the beach. That really will make me think twice before buying it again in the near future.

    Suntan...

    Posted by Barbara Shepherd on 21st Jul 2020

    It was quite difficult to squeeze some out of the tube but a little bit went a long way as you advised.
    I found the smell off-putting at first, quite unpleasant in fact
    but this wore off after a short while.
    I think it did the trick though as after 4 hours exposure to the sun from 10 am until 2 pm I didn't suffer any adverse effects.
