Sunscreen lotion bars are a fun way to apply sunscreen during the Summer months. The ones we make are non-toxic and have all natural ingredients that your skin will love! Commercial lotions can be toxic, and have potential endocrine disruptors that can cause all sorts of issues. We are not okay with any of that, and you should not be either. Knowing the ingredients you put on your skin can put your mind at ease. These sunscreen lotion bars make great little gifts to give out to friends and family who spend time in the sun.

What’s in them?

  1. 3/4 cup Unrefined Shea Butter
  2. 1/4 cup Beeswax
  3. 1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil
  4. 3 tbsp Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Powder (Make sure it’s non-nano, so it can’t absorb into your bloodstream)
  5. 1 tsp Vitamin E Oil

How do you make it?

Using a double boiler on low heat, combine the Shea Butter, Beeswax, and Coconut Oil. Set the heat on low, and stir every few minutes until ingredients are fully melted and combined. Remove it from the heat, and then add your Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Powder and Vitamin E Oil. Carefully pour the mixture into the silicone molds of your choice. Place it in the fridge for a couple of hours, or the freezer for half an hour. Finally, remove the molds and pop out your sunscreen lotion bars. Store them in a sealed container.

To apply, simply rub on your skin. It will feel like a lotion, and you can rub it into your skin further using your hands. These all natural bars will melt in the hot sun, so either apply it while indoors or make sure to keep it in a sealed container when you’re out and about. It will still work when it is melted, and it will return to a solid state after being in cooler indoor temperatures.

As with all sunscreens, make sure you re-apply this as needed. There are no chemicals to make this waterproof, but the beeswax will help with that. No sunscreen lasts all day, and this is no exception. Use safety and caution when in the sun and outdoors. Now, enjoy your new all natural sunscreen lotion bars!
