Shade's revolutionary organic, four (yes, FOUR!) ingredient formula is broad spectrum, all natural, toxin free and reef safe. Gone are the days of buying plastic bottles of synthetic sunscreens which are damaging to the oceans and end up in landfill - Shade provides amazing protection in a reuable, leak proof tin. Zero waste, zero harm.
This full size tub is perfect for holidays, popping in your bag or taking on the slopes. At an ideal SPF25, Shade has been developed to keep your skin naturally healthy and moisturised whilst blocking damaging rays.
- Protects against baorad spectrum UVA1, UVA2 and UVB rays
- Four ingredient, all natural formula means no parabens, chemicals or unnecessary fillers
- Unscented and suitable for all skin types and all ages
- Zero waste packaging which can be reused, repurposed or recycled
- Non nano, meaning no small particles can get anywhere near your lovely bloodstreams
SPF25 means that it will take around 25 times longer for your skin to burn than it would without protection. It also means that the sunscreen will block around 96% of UV rays - by contract, SPF50 blocks around 98%. Some people have a false sense of security when they use higher factor sunscreens, but the differences is marginal and you should always take care to not expose your skin to the sun for too long.
Many people think that by reapplying sunscreen frequently, they can stay out in the sun for longer - this is a common misconception, as a small percentage of UV rays will still reach the skin, no matter what.
Unlike many chemical sunscreens, Shade does not contain burn inhibitors which switch off the burning sensation - this is brilliant, as you will be able to feel your body's warning that you have been exposed in the sun for too long.
All Natural Sunscreen | Shade, 100ml
Before I discovered Shade, I was so conscious of the number of plastic sunscreen bottles myself, friends and family would get through each summer as well as the harm which chemical sunscreens can cause to coral and marine wildlife.
I was so excited when I found Shade - the buttery formula is nourishing, the sunscreen is incredibly effective and I love that there are only four ingredients. The packaging is not only zero waste, but also won't leak in your beach bag (finally!).
