Non-Metallic Organic Sunscreen. Fresh.

Yes. it is absolutely possible to protect your skin from the sun without toxic synthetic chemicals, harsh metals or anything harmful. Period. I can't say exactly what the SPF is, but I can say that it is very respectable.

So Here's How It Works

Red Raspberry Seed Oil absorbs the sun's harmful energy before it penetrates into your skin. So, while Red Raspberry Seed Oil offers extremely respectable protection from the sun's harmful radiations (without any of the very harmful ingredients found in commercial sunblocks), it does not carry an FDA rating for SPF.

How To Use:

  • Apply a small amount to your fingertips and spread it onto your skin.
  • Work in sections, being careful not to apply too much as only a thin film is necessary.
  • Re-apply every few hours, after you've been sweating, swimming or bathing.
  • If you are using it on a child, pay close attention -- if the little one gets sweaty while playing, protection is sacrificed. Just keep an eye on them and re-apply if necessary.

For Best Results

Apply a thin application to exposed skin every two hours, after swimming, or working out (perspiration weakens the protection). This is especially true for playing children.  

Frequently Asked Questions About Red Raspberry Seed Oil

  1.  Why is there a range in SPF? To answer this you have to understand how the SPF rating system works. SPF makes an assumption about how long someone can stay in the sun without getting burned based on the percentage of UVB rays blocked, absorbed or deflected by a suncreen. SPF 30 protects against 97% of UVB rays and SPF 50 protects against 98% of UVB rays. The difference is one percentage of UVB rays.
  2. So does it have UVA and UVB protection? Yes! Raspberry Seed Oil has almost equal UVA and UVB protection.
  3. How often should I reapply? We want your first experience to be a really good one! We recommend that for your first time, you set a timer and reapply every half hour. This way, you're sure not to get burned.
  4. Is it safe for kids? Yes, in fact, there's really nothing safer. The only problem is that kids are very active and they tend to sweat, which interferes with Raspberry Seed Oil's ability to absorb and deflect the sun. Only use on kids if you are able to reapply every half hour.
  5. Can I exercise with it on? Yes, but again, sweat interferes with the absorption capability so reapply every half hour.
  6. What does it smell like? It smells like Raspberry Seed Oil. We do absolutely nothing to alter the smell. To some people with very sensitive noses, it smells a bit fishy. But most people don't notice it much. The good news is that if you do have a strong sense of scent, it absorbs quickly and the scent doesn't linger.
  7. Can I apply it over my makeup? Yes, absolutely. Keep in mind that it's an oil so the best way to apply is first squirt it onto your hands and rub them together. Then pat your hands onto your face. This way you won't get an oily spot on your cheek. This is also the best way to reapply throughout the day without disturbing your makeup.
  8. I have acne. Will it make me break out? Not at all! Raspberry Seed Oil has a very high profile of Linoleic Fatty Acid which actually dissolves sebum (sebum is the oil your skin naturally produces, but when over-produced, it clogs your pores causing pimples and acne). Raspberry Seed Oil is so nourishing that we often recommend it as a pre-cleansing oil for people with dry or dull skin.
  9. Can you make it into a lotion? Unfortunately no. In order to make a lotion we would have to dilute the oil with water, which would lower the SPF considerably.
  10. What is the shelf life of Raspberry Seed Oil? Raspberry Seed Oil is a very stable oil and you could use it many years after you bought it and be fine, but we've decided to be very conservative and claim a two year shelf life.

A Few Words On Ingredients:

Obviously, pristine super quality ingredients are very important. Every constituent of a skincare product should be either organic or wildcrafted; ours are. Ingredients considered separately should all be what skin readily considers a nutrient source and non threatening; ours are. And lastly formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than just randomly assembling a list of good ingredients, it's understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios, we do.

Great, Unique Product

As part of my detoxification of my personal care products, I wanted to change my daily sunscreen. I have combo skin, leaning towards dry.

Pros:

-Easy to apply, skin readily absorbs

-Easily goes under makeup without affecting foundation application

-Seems like it’ll last a while since a little goes a long way

-no skin irritation!

Since it’s cold now, I’m outside less and the sun is weaker, so I haven’t been able to test the efficacy of the SPF but I trust it based on other reviews. :) I recommend the product!

Easy and Great!

I live in California and sunscreen has always been a part of my daily life, whether it's sunny out there or not. Luminance's sunscreen is the answer to my prayer-- even though it's oil based, my combination type skin does not look oily but instead of glowing after application. Minimal smell, great natural ingredients, and easy application-- what else could I ask for more?! (photo taken after around 2 hours of application)

so happy with this product!

i've tried so many different sunscreens trying to find one that works without making my skin break out, and i'm glad to say my search is over! i love this sunscreen. it is effective, easy to apply (a little goes a long way), and smells amazing (not too strong though). i also love to support a company that makes vegan and organic products. i don't think i'll ever use another sunscreen for my face! my sunscreen also came with a sample kit and earlier today i ordered the full sizes of several of the products because i love them. my skin is glowing - thanks luminance!

Love this!

It is great that this is plant-derived with no chemicals. We have been using it all summer. I feel good being able to put this sunscreen on my family.

This stuff works!

I've been looking everywhere for an organic sunscreen that works as well as this one. It's come in so handy this summer. Absorbs well and I've been able to wear it underneath/ on top of my make up. Didn't cause any break outs. Works well when reapplied often. Totally worth re-applying when you know you are putting the good stuff on your skin. I would love to see a travel sized/ TSA approved version of this product.
