Non Metalic Organic Sun Screen

Rated 4.8 out of 5
68 Ratings
Yes it is absolutely possible to protect your skin from the sun without toxic synthetic chemicals, harsh metals or anything harmful. Period.       
No Zinc.* No Titanium. No Copper. No Parabens.
No Endocrine Disruption.
No Synthetic Ingredients. No Waxes.
No PABA. No Petrochemical Derivatives.                                                   
Our organic sun screen relies upon the absorption characteristics of Red Raspberry Seed Oil to naturally and safely screen more than 98% UVA and UVB. It would take an SPF rating of at least 35 to match this performance.                                                                                              
So while extremely respectable protection from the sun's harmful radiations without any of the very harmful ingredients found in commercial sunblocks; Red Raspberry Seed Oil does not carry an FDA rating for SPF.  
.

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. 

 
Ingredients:
A complete listing of all of the ingredients in this product. Absolutely nothing left out. Nothing hidden.
  • Red Raspberry Seed Oil
  • Sunflower Seed
  • Apricot Kernal
                                                                                       
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.                              
Note: Red Raspberry Seed Oil is high in linoleic fatty acids and as such is absolutely wonderful for your skin!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  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 sun screen or sun block. 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! So we recommend that for your first time you set a timer and reapply every half hour. This way you're sure not to get burnt. But depending on how much you sweat, if you're exposing yourself to water or completely dry, and how strong the sun is you can reapply every half hour to two hours. 
  4. Is it safe for kids? Yes, 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. So only use on kids if you are able to reapply every half hour.
  5. Can I exercise with it on? Yes, but sweat interferes with the absorption capability (as mentioned above) 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 make-up? 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 a huge oily spot on your cheek. This is also the best way to reapply throughout the day without disturbing your make-up.
  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 lowering 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.

Best customer service

I ordered this based on reviews. When I recieved it, I was disappointed it had leaked all over. After contacting customer service, they immediately replaced it! Although I don't care for the smell, this sunscreen didn't clog my already oily, acne ridden skin and absorbed nicely. Will definitely be buying more!

i love it

I love this. It smells great, and it makes my skin very soft. It does not clog pores.

I use it everyday, and only supplement with a stronger sunscreen when I'm out in the mid day sun or swimming. (I live in South florida.)

It's a beautiful blend of oils, another gem from Luminance.

Love it!

Who would have thought this would be the best way to protect my skin from the sun. I have fair skin that burns very easily. I have been using this on the weekends while I 'm in and out of the house. I put it on in the morning and I'm good for the whole day. Can't wait till summer, no more stress about using sunscreen that irritates my skin.
