The Good Stuff in Hello Sunshine Natural Sunscreen:
Zinc oxide is a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA & UVB rays. Zinc Oxide is the safest and most effective active sunscreen ingredient to give broad spectrum protection.
Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis). We use castor oils because of it’s high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids. Castor oil has many powerful benefits on the skin and we use it because of it’s natural protection.
Coconut oil has a natural SPF and contains antioxidants that help protect the skin from harmful radiation from the sun.
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity.
Carnauba wax comes from the leaves of the carnauba palm, a plant that grows in northeastern Brazil. In hot, dry weather, the palm secretes wax to protect its leaves from damage. We use it in our sunscreen for natural skin protection. An odourless hypoallergenic wax suitable for all skin types. It’s especially good for sensitive skin.
Simmondsia chinensis oil (jojoba)
Jojoba Oil is full of nutrients and antioxidants, and also helps tame inflammation, soothe sunburn, and is gentle and protective on the skin
Natural Sunscreen FAQ:
Is this facestick preservative free?
Yes. There are no chemical or synthetic preservatives in hello sunshine… and by that we mean Nothing. Zero. None. Nada. Zilch. Zip.
Does this facestick contain parabens?
Absolutely not. No parabens are used within 123 Nourish Me range. Parabens are possible endocrine disrupters and while they are what gives the sunscreen a smooth glide on finish they believe they have been able to achieve this by using naturally based ingredients like beeswax and fractionated coconut oil.
Does this facestick stain clothes?
It should not stain clothes since it does not contain organic solar absorbers which are renowned for fabric staining. However, this is fabric dependent and it is encourage you to test this for yourself as we cannot offer guarantees about clothes staining.
Is this facestick nano or non-nano?
A zinc oxide has been chosen within this sunscreen that is not a nano zinc oxide. However, the sunscreen may contain nanoparticles. To explain, all powders contain nanoparticles in small amounts, every zinc oxide source will contain low concentrations of sub nanoparticles, this has always been the case. The zinc oxide that we use is called ‘micronised zinc oxide’, this means that it is not predominantly nano. It is the the highest quality zinc oxide that has been available for this sunscreen.
Is your facestick water resistant?
Yes, but as per instructions needs to be re-applied frequently after swimming.
From what age can I use hello sunshine?
Hello Sunshine is the perfect natural sunscreen for babies. It can be used safely from 6+ months.
Is this facestick TGA approved and tested?
Is Hello Sunshine ‘reef friendly?
There is some scientific evidence that oxybenzone, a sunscreen active, could be contributing to coral bleaching. No use of oxybenzone in any of the 123 Nourish Me products and there is no use of oxybenzone in Hello Sunshine Natural Sunscreen either
