Wear Sunscreen - daily spf 32
- wear sunscreen -
I have a confession: until a few months ago, I fully thought I could skimp on my SPF because hey, woman of colour, the sun and I are like, BFFs. and I wasn’t the only one, 1 in 3 Black women never, ever wears SPF.
not helping: sunscreen ads and skin cancer warnings not directed to people of colour, which further push the ideas that we don’t need to worry. anyway, I digress.
spoiler alert: no matter your skin tone, you need sun protection every damn day. and not just because of the sun. all that increased screen time is effing with your skin too.
these days, everything you buy seems to be a chemical soup. so we combined the power of zinc oxide with moisturising shea butter and coconut oil, to create a sunscreen that trumps the toxin-loaded stuff.
zinc oxide provides broad spectrum sun protection and helps prevent skin cancer and early aging. it is the safest and most natural physical blocking agent available.
we also added carrot and raspberry oil, not because bloggers swear they both have an SPF from 15 to 35 (or is it 45?), but because they’re packed in antioxidants that repair the damage caused by free radicals to the skin and help moisturise af.
wear sunscreen helps protect skin against all types of light, including blue light 💻
Ps. your face mask doesn’t protect you from the sun’s UV rays either
triple threat protection against:
- UVA and UVB rays
- blue light
- pollution damage
so no more excuses for not wearing sunscreen, okay?
shea butter, zinc oxide, raspberry oil, carrot oil, vitamin E, glycerin, cetearyl olivate, sorbitan olivate, salicylic acid, sorbic acid, benzyl alcohol (yep, all natural stuff)
apply generously 15 minutes before sun exposure. use a pea-sized amount on each cheek, forehead, nose, and chin. reapply every 2 hours and if swimming, whenever needed.
suitable for all skin types. if you’re acne prone, this will become your fave spf.
our wear sunscreen spf was inspired by one of our team members’ favourite song. thank god for lockdown, we don’t have to listen to this non stop. sound advice though.
most of our products are self-preserving, meaning they are preserved using natural ingredients and clever formulation. in the case of more complex formulas, we always almost use natural preservatives unless we really can’t.
