Natural Sunscreens are a challenging product to formulate, but Geoff and Jan of Millstream have really done their research and come up with a product that is natural and effective, and they've got the laboratory tests to prove it.
This is a dispersion of Zinc Oxide in base derived from coconut oil which has ECO Cert, and Natural Products certification. Unlike the old style zinc sunscreens, ours won't leave your skin looking white, and because the zinc provides a physical barrier on the surface of your skin, it is works as soon as it is applied (no pesky 20 minute waiting time before you can go in the sun).
Testing by Dermatest confirms that the SPF is over 30 and that the product meets both Critical Wavelength, and UVAPF and UVAPF/SPF requirements.
Zinc Oxide is a broad spectrum UV blocker, and works instantly, the cream base and plant extracts enhance the SPF and help protect your skin from sun damage.
Presented in an attractive tin attached to an information card, this is a great product for yourself or to give as a gift.
To use: Apply to your skin before venturing into the sun. Re-apply regularly. Common Sense: Avoid exposure during hottest part of day, wear light clothing and a hat.

Dee says: "I'm so pleased to be able to bring you some of Millstream Gardens' wonderful natural products. I've known Geoff and Jan for a few years now, since they invited us to keep some of our hives at Millstream, and they are absolutely the real deal. Their knowledge of plants and herbal remedies is incredible, and most of the plants used in their products are grown and harvested right in their own gardens. With 30 years of learning and experience under their belts, their skill and commitment shows in every tin."
