18 Beneficial Active Ingredients
The Sun Body Oil is a body serum and moisturiser packed with nutrients and antioxidants to be used before and after sun exposure. Every single ingredient chosen for this blend has been clinically studied or used historically for its ability to assist in preventing UV induced oxidative damage or their ability to repair damage after too much sun exposure.
This light weight oil is a wealth of carotenoids, resveratrol, polyphenols and essential fatty acids working in harmony and intelligently with your own skin to strengthen its own ability to respond in a healthy way to the sun’s rays. It contains a blend of aromatic tropical and floral essential oils in combination with fruity raw lipid rich oils that come together to create a scent that nods to summer’s abundance.
The Sun Body Oil also includes a house made Gem Essence of Aquamarine, Turquoise and Citrine to inspire joy, movement and freedom of expression.
How to Use
For best results, apply Sun Body Oil to the body before and after time spent in the sun. When in full sun exposure for longer periods of time, reapply this product approximately 1x per hour.
Each person’s skin is different, and timing may differ for individuals. It’s important to keep in mind that organic oils absorb quickly into the skin, and can wear off faster than physical blocks containing Zinc.
If this product is used in addition to a physical Zinc sunscreen, then the oil should always be applied to the skin first followed by the sunscreen.
Begin use within 18 months of manufacture date on the bottom of the bottle. Use within 6 months of opening.
Note from Laurel
Science: Sunscreens are made with drugs, and plants are not widely regarded as drugs – plants are definitely not regarded as drugs by the FDA.
Chemical compounds within plants are variable and can change from harvest to harvest, farm to farm, or processor to processor. While we cannot legally recommend using our products as sunscreens, there is still substantial evidence to support that specific plants with high antioxidant content will absolutely help to prevent sun damage from occurring.
