According to Dr Hennie Du Plessis, the sunscreen is 99.9% natural and + 0.1% Sodium Benzoate. By regulations a product is classified as “natural” when 95% or more of the ingredients are natural. Therefore, our sunscreen is natural but not 100% natural.
What is Sodium Benzoate?
It is a preservative used to extend the shelf life. In small concentrations as seen in our sunscreen, Sodium Benzoate is deemed safe by the FDA (GRAS).
All the raw materials are sourced and purchased from locally accredited suppliers.
Our sunscreen's Sun Protection Factor is sitting at 50, the highest protection one can get. Don't be fooled into thinking that there is a higher protection out there, this is fake news.
The 50 in SPF50 refers to the amount of protection the sun screen offers compared to unprotected skin.
SPF 50+ sunscreens are formulated to allow less damaging rays to reach your skin’s surface than lower SPF sunscreens. For example, when applied correctly, SPF30+ allows 3.3% of UVB rays to reach your skin while SPF 50+ allows only 2% to reach your skin.
This may not sound like much of a difference, but over a lifetime of UV exposure, it all adds up.
Yeah it is!
We aim to protect our ocean environment, more specifically our coral reefs as much as possible.
Our main actives:

These act as filters that protect the skin by deflecting the UVA and UVB rays.
Glycerol Monostearate is an emulsifier and is found in many personal care products. The FDA has deemed that the ingredient is recognized as safe (GRAS). Research shows that the ingredient will not irritate the skin and therefore is appropriate for those with sensitive skin types.
Glycerol Monostearate in our sunscreen is derived from:
* Vegetable Oil
* Palm Kernel Oil
* Soy Oil
Cetearyl Alcohol is a white, waxy mixture of fatty alcohols; cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol. It is used in personal care products to prevent creams from separating into oil and liquid. Due to their chemical structure, fatty alcohols (like cetearyl alcohol) don’t have the same effect on skin as other alcohols do. Instead, they act as emollients, trapping water and providing a soothing feel to the skin.
The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel has concluded that fatty alcohols, including cetearyl alcohol, are safe for use in cosmetic products. In clinical studies, cetearyl alcohol was found to have no significant toxicity and was non-mutagenic. Cetearyl Alcohol has also been deemed safe by the FDA.
Cetearyl alcohol in our products is derived from:
- Coconut Palm Trees
- Palm Trees
- Corn Plants
- Soy Plants
Glycerin is a natural compound and acts as a humectant which is a moisturizing agent that draws moisture from the air around and helps keep the moisture in the skin. Research has shown that glycerin mimics the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF) which is why it Is compatible with all types of skin and ages of skin.
Glycerin has a long history of safe use, and is considered non-allergenic and suitable for breakout-prone skin. It is generally recognized as safe by the FDA.
Glycerin in our products is derived from:
The misconception with the word “Sulphates” being negative, stems from the Hair Care Industry. Sulphates can be found in many forms or compounds and not all of these forms/compounds have negative health effects. Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is a Sulphate compound that exists in the Hair Care Industry, and it has qualities, which from studies, have found to bring about health concerns.
Whereas Barium Sulphate (INCI name), which is found in our products, is a natural mineral (Baryte or Barite) straight from the earth and is a completely different chemical compound that Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. This ingredient is harmless. It can be used daily, for example it will be used by medical practitioners when they do scans. The patient is asked to swallow the Barium Sulphate two hours before the scan to form a layer on the intestines so that they scan can be completed effectively.
All our ingredients have been sourced ethically and we have a RSPO certification as evidence of this.
There should be no concerns with using a product that contains essential oil as a fragrance as it is natural and will not cause any irritations with sensitive skin type.
However, like all cosmetic products, there may be a concern for those who may be allergic to the specific essential oils used. The consumer should just be aware of their allergies and take precaution.
Nope it does not, all essential oils are natural and are extracted from plant material.
No, it is not certified organic.
Of course! No testing on any animals here.
Yup, they are.
Please check the back of all the packaging to find out at what level they can be recycled.
Yes, the SPF is regulated in South Africa.
There are only two accredited test Laboratories in South Africa who conduct SPF tests and they issue certificates when the formula passes the test. These certificates will then be presented to CANSA, who then allow permission to use the CANSA SunSmart Logo on branding and product.
Our products have an expiry date of 3 years.
However, if stored in the right conditions (i.e. below 25℃ and away from excessive heat/light) it can last longer.
According to Dr Du Plessis, all of our products have gone through multiple sensitivity tests to make sure that they are ideal for those with all different types of skin conditions, including those with sensitive skin types.
Our products have also been tested and approved by Dermatologists.
Absolutely not! We have received lots of positive feedback on this matter.
Our formula is non-oily and water/sweat resistant, meaning that it is ideal for those wanting to do some exercise or sport in the blazing sun. It will not run into your eyes when sweating or when swimming.
It is extremely important to reapply sunscreen and no level of SPF will allow for one time application.
With our sunscreen you should reapply after every two hours and after every 40 minutes if swimming or extreme sweating.
