Regular price $18.00

100% natural, pure and organic ingredients
Safe for babies and suitable for sensitive skin including those that suffer from skin conditions such as eczema
Doubles as a mosquito and sandfly repellent
Water-resistant factor
Moisturising and nourishing for the skin, while protecting it
Acts as barrier, so no need to wait 20 minutes before going out in the sun


I developed this initially for my 7-month old son, as when I started to investigate which sunblock to buy for him as the New Zealand summer rolled around. I discovered many of the existing products on the market contained lots of nasty chemicals, preservatives and artificial fragrances – which with further research, I wasn't happy about using on him.

Ingredients: Unrefined shea butter*, cold-pressed virgin coconut oil*, pharmaceutical-grade non-nano zinc oxide, NZ beeswax*, natural vitamin E and pure therapeutic-grade lavender essential oil*. *organic

The zinc oxide acts as the main active ingredient against UV, and the other ingredients provide a smaller SPF. Non-nano zinc oxide is used because it means the particles are not small enough to enter the bloodstream, unlike other sunscreens on the market.

It is not lab tested (so I cannot provide an exact SPF factor), but it is human tested with great success.

50g Aluminium tin with a screw-on lid.

  • Mr Sensitive skin flares up at ANYTHING! So I was stressing about summer coming and searching for a sunscreen. So glad I found such a wonderful, natural and gentle product that actually works too!!
  • Love this wee product! My daughter burns very easily and I don't like putting chemical filled creams on her sensitive skin. Came across this product and not only does it smell Devine, it goes on nicely and covers well. We haven't had a great amount of sun to be able to test it properly, but it did do the job during the small amount of time we were outside the other day. Recommend 100%
  • I've tried natural sun creams before and ended up getting burnt. When I used this one I noticed straight away it felt different. It felt like a "thicker" product in the sense it was providing a barrier, but without feeling heavy or sticky to wear. Plus the lavender fragrance makes it feel like a lush treat to lather on :-)

 

About The Nude Alchemist

The Nude Alchemist began as a personal endeavour to create products to use on my children that I knew were 100% natural and safe, without all the added and unnecessary fillers, chemicals and preservatives that are typically found in similar products. I started sharing my success stories of my handcrafted remedies with other mothers in the community and before I knew it, I was receiving orders left, right and centre - and so The Nude Alchemist was born.

My expertise and passion lies within essential oils. I believe it is important to look to nature and harness the healing properties they can potentially provide. Essential oils have been around for centuries, mentioned over 100 times in the bible and once used by the ancient Egyptians as medicine.

I only use high-quality, 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils that have third-party test batch reports available, which not only means purity is guaranteed, but also the correct chemical composition to achieve the desired therapeutic results. These are some of the best essential oils available on the world-wide market today with no added fillers, pesticides, chemicals or artificial ingredients or preservatives.

Alongside essential oils, I select the best quality products I can find, not compromising on quality in favour of cost.

I am also very conscious of the planet and reduce the use of plastic where possible. Most of my product packaging is recyclable, including the aluminium silver. Even the packaging I use to post the products to you lovely people, all around New Zealand, has been recycled by me, and hopefully will be again in its life cycle.
