Shade All-Natural Sunscreen SPF 25 100ml
Shade All-Natural Sunscreen SPF 25 is an effective, natural sun cream which literally does what it says on the tin. It was conceived to take us back to a time when life was simple, the sum total of our personal care products boiled down to toothpaste, shaving cream, shampoo and a bit of mascara for mum and our exposure to dangerous chemicals through these products was limited. Nowadays, there are too many dangerous chemicals that have found their way into mainstream sunscreens, and they in turn have found their way through your skin into you! If you’re trying to avoid skin cancer, why use chemicals which are proven to cause it?
To us, that simply doesn’t make sense. At an ideal SPF30, with only 4 ingredients to moisturise and protect skin from the broadest spectrum of damaging UVA and UVB rays, ShadeTM has been developed to keep your skin naturally healthy whilst blocking rays that can burn it and threaten your health.
Shade™ is an entirely natural product and so you may find some tiny little specs in your Shade™ which have come naturally with the unrefined beeswax or shea butter. The coconut oil is very well filtered but we do sometimes find naturally-occuring biproducts of the manufacturing process of the oil in our supplies (i.e. tiny weeny bits of the nut!) Although we endeavour to remove as much as we can, this is a time-consuming task which is done by hand, and we cannot guarantee all ‘impurities’ will be removed.
Zinc Clumping Effect You may also see your cream turn from a smooth surface to a rather mottled looking surface if you don’t use it up quickly. This again is a natural occurrence and is when zinc oxide crystals attract one-another because of their polarity, and hang out together in a ‘clumping’ effect. If this occurs, simply rub the cream into your skin really well when you apply it.
Application Apply generously at least 15min before exposure to the sun, and then reapply regularly at least every 2 – 3 hours or after exposure to water or after sweating.
Shelf Life Once opened, use Shade™ within 12 months, otherwise it has a shelf life of three years. We make small batches of Shade™ regularly each week to maximise life of the product from manufacture to customer.
We have used quite a few sunscreens in our day, and most have been greasy, leave you white, and make our children’s skin irritated and red. They also contain chemicals, which we don’t like.
We used Shade on a recent trip to Queensland, and we couldn’t be happier. It is quickly adsorbed into the skin, leaves your skin smooth and is not greasy at all. Best of all, we didn’t get burnt. Shade is a fantastic natural alternative to other sunscreens.
Shade is now the only sunscreen we will use.

Shade is lovely to apply and lasts a long time, we are really happy with it. Feels nice on the skin too.Carmen on Nov 20, 2015
I love Shade! It’s been really hot here over 35 degrees every day and I’ve been putting shade on my sons arms and face when he goes to school. Usually after a day or two of sunscreen an awful rash starts to come up and he hasn’t had it and better still no sunburn. Australia has very strict laws when it comes to selling sunscreen. I need to do a bit of research, but I’m going to look into if we can sell shade here because it’s great.

Comes in a tin, I ordered original and it has very light smell of coconut. It is white in a tin due to Zinc, but I was very surprised when applied it. It doesn’t give yoou a ghost face, instead it spreads really nicely. I didnt check the protection as of yet, my holiday is in a weeks time. But I am putting in another order for my mom as well. This product has only 4 main ingredients and they are amazing!
