Coconut Broad Spectrum Sunshade Lotion (mineral protection)
Hello Summer! Introducing, the nostalgic aroma
of coconut and sun-drenched carefree days.
We think you're going to fall head over heels for our best sunscreen formulation yet. It goes on clear and feels light and cooling. Not too greasy and not the least bit chalky.
Hundreds of Central Oregon locals have put our Sunshade lotion (10% zinc oxide, 8% titanium dioxide) to the test, lounging on beaches, rafting on rivers, running trails, climbing mountains and skiing at high altitudes. Made with skin-nourishing aloe, Fair Trade shea butter, Hawaiian kukui nut and rosehip seed oils, plus locally grown Oregon lavender and sage, it’s pretty water and sweat-resistant and safer for marine life and reefs.
- spf 30+ (compares to most spf 45)
- Protects skin from UVA/UVB rays
- Reef & Marine Safe
- Goes on clear, no "chalky" feel or look, even on darker skin!
- Moisturizes and soothes dry skin
- Fights free radicals
DIRECTIONS: Apply liberally to all exposed skin just before heading outside. Reapply often (every 2-3 hours), especially after swimming.
NOTE: Dermatologists recommend zinc and titanium as the safest, most effective sunscreens on the market. They are micronized (e.g. won't leave a white tint), but not nano-sized (e.g. won't be absorbed by your body) and naturally anti-inflammatory.
Coconut oil is deeply moisturizing, high in skin-building long-chain fatty acids, antibacterial and soothing to the skin.
Zinc oxide is a natural chalk-like mineral with anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that helps calm inflammation.
Kukui nut oil, high in linoleic and alpha-linolenic essential fatty acids, has been used by Hawaiian natives for hundreds of years for its highly absorbent, soothing and healing properties. It is an excellent treatment for dry skin, psoriasis, acne and eczema.
Jasmine Flower Absolute cools and calms inflamed skin. It helps with meditation and remaining positive regardless of your challenges.
Shea butter is anti-inflammatory, chock full of nutrients and vitamins and antioxidants, deeply moisturizing and helps calm eczema and psoriasis. Ours (the best we’ve found anywhere!) is sustainably harvested and made using traditional methods by a women-run cooperative in western Africa.

This is the best natural sunscreen I have found yet. Goes on smooth, rubs in without leaving a greasy or oily feeling. Doesn’t leave you chalky looking either, unless you use too much. Trial and error there. Works great for my outdoor activities without making my skin feel gross and knowing I’m leaving as little of an environmental impact as possible, while protecting myself, is a major bonus.
I keep coming back to this and had to try the coconut, I used to use the Hazelnut which I loved, and tried the Lavender which attracted too many bees. The zinc still leaves my skin a little dry and I can't wait to rinse off after sun exposure but I think that is the nature of physical block sunscreens. I am giving it 5 stars because it is a pleasure to use, does the job, and I can live with the zinc after feel.
Hi Kate, Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm surprised and so interested to know that the lavender scent attracted bees! That's the first I've heard about that! Zinc is definitely tenacious and our Sugar Scrubs work wonders to remove it after a day in the sun. Warmly, Angelina
I LOVE this sunscreen!!! I have tried pretty much every clean brand of sunscreen out there, and this is my favorite. It isn’t sticky, my skin feels like it can breathe, it smells lovely, and rubs in clear. I wear it on long bike rides and it doesn’t sweat off. Highly recommended.
Hi Laurel, I'm so glad you like it! We've worked on this formula for over a decade and it's been quite the journey to making it not only work well, but to feel good too. Warmly, Angelina
