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.
It feels surprisingly light on the skin given the super high protective factor, once it’s rubbed in. The scent is delicate and pleasant, and the water resistance performed well. I saw that it is available in a 1L bottle too, which always impresses me. Buying bulk is a two-fold benefit for the environment.
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!
Light, easily spreadable and not greasy. This sunscreen feels like a luxe moisturiser and smells delicious – lavender and ylang ylang – so good! My children adore this too and they normally aren’t fans of sunscreen on their faces.
A fantastic SPF 50 suscreen, perfect for use on the face, arms and shoulders. I love how compact the tube is – great for throwing in your handbag. Despite its high zinc oxide content, it’s not drying, thanks to the perfect balance of oils, wax and essential oils. It’s completely reef-safe and lasts for up to 3 hours and stays on strong after a couple of ocean swims. I also love that a percentage of all profits goes to reef restoration initiatives.
