Safe – Formulated from excellent, non-toxic ingredients including shea butter, jojoba, lavender and ylang ylang oils. SPF 30+.
Responsible – On a mission to stop the detrimental impacts of mainstream SPF products on aquatic ecosystems and particularly coral reefs, P4O Sun Care donates a percentage of all sales directly to reef restoration initiatives worldwide.
Their low-carbon footprint products come encased in sugar-cane resin and are 100% manufactured (inc. packaging) in Australia using solar energy. Ingredients are locally and sustainably sourced. Their cotton pouches (complimentary of any purchase of P4O Sun Pack) are hand-made in Brunswick from upcycled cotton. P4O products are shipped using carbon-neutral couriers (Sendle, Auspost) for domestic standard shipping and compostable mailers for all shippings. All packaging excludes single-use packaging (no outer box) or single-use plastics.
I liked the coverage and thickness of this sunscreen, and admire that the product is non-toxic, vegan and uses eco / recyclable bottles and packaging.
I love the buttery skin-nourishing texture, which leaves zero white cast. It applies like a rich moisturiser would and seemed to well-hydrate weathered and parched limbs. The brand has lots of great, unique initiatives around things like solar energy and carbon neutral production, which are impressive. So too is the dedication (and charity) around reef restoration. Really interesting and impressive stuff.
I absolutely loved the scent of this sunscreen. It was definitely my favorite brand and scent out of all the sunscreens I tried. It went on smoothly and gave a nice and thick coverage for my childrens’ skin. I loved the information pamphlet, I loved their minimal packaging, and I loved that they share their impact about growing the reef on their socials / website. Can I say love any more? I’m really excited to watch this brand – they are going to be serious change makers!
This sunscreen spreads easily and feels luxuriously moisturising, it also smells divine –ylang ylang and patchouli are a beautiful combo! I love how it doesn’t ghost white due to its yellow colouring from the carrot oil.
This is the perfect sunscreen for me – it both dispenses and disperses really easily, it has a lovely subtle scent, is infused with natural oils and beeswax (so it doesn’t dry my skin or my palms out!) and best of all: it is 100% safe for our oceans (and our bodies!) It lasts for up to 3 hours and stays on strong after a couple of ocean swims. I love that a percentage of all profits goes to reef restoration initiatives.
