  • Baby-safe: suitable for all ages 3m+.
  • Eczema-friendly: gentle on the most sensitive skin, including eczema-prone.
  • Reef-friendly: no chemicals, making it a better option to safeguard aquatic life and their habitats.
  • A little goes a long way: no water, preservatives or filler ingredients. Every ingredient chosen has a purpose! 
  • Pleasant aroma: with hints of lavender and coconut, this sunscreen smells like summer. Sunscreen doesn't need to smell bad! 
  • Eco-conscious packaging: 75g in a recyclable 100% sugarcane tube, making it easy to apply and convenient for summer adventures while lessening one's carbon footprint.
  • Locally made: made here in Aotearoa with love.

How does it work? Rather than being absorbed into the skin like a traditional chemical-based sunscreen, the mineral UV filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in this case) sit on top of the skin and deflect and/or block harmful UV rays in a similar fashion to protective clothing. Mineral sunscreens with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are widely considered to be the gentlest and safest sun care products.

"Mineral sunscreens are like a healthy, home-cooked meal, while chemical sunscreens are like the fast food of sunscreens" – Lauren Ploch, MD, a USA board-certified dermatologist.

How is this different to your previous sunscreen "Sun-Barrier Cream"? Firstly, and most importantly, the new formula has undergone rigorous SPF testing in line with the new AS/NZS 2604:2021 standards and has been formulated in conjunction with cosmetic chemists. With a nod to our original formula, it contains most of the original ingredients with the same nostalgic aroma. We have added extra ingredients to: 

  • super-charge the SPF
  • keep the UV filters that protect your skin evenly distributed throughout the formulation
  • enhance the skin feel
  • delivered to you in a convenient tube (made from 100% sugarcane), making your summer adventures easier

Fancy a sunscreen applicator for less mess? The Solar Buddies Sunscreen Applicator dispenses this sunscreen well in temperatures over 15 degrees.

For best practice, while having fun in the sun, remember the saying "SLIP, SLOP, SLAP and WRAP". As well as applying SPF-rated sunscreen, this includes wearing a hat, sunglasses, and protective clothing and seeking shade where possible to avoid direct exposure to UV rays. 

Apply liberally onto dry skin 20 minutes before sun exposure to protect against UV rays. Reapply every two hours and after swimming, sweating or towelling.
