Our reef-friendly Bee Pollen Sunscreen not only protects your skin, but it soothes and nourishes it with quality ingredients! Made with local bee pollen, pure olive oil, organic unrefined coconut oil, pure beeswax, pure shea butter, non-nano zinc oxide powder, pure carrot seed oil, & pure lavender essential oil. Stay away from toxic sunscreens that cause more damage to your skin and harm our oceans. Make the switch! Bee pollen is mineral rich AND nature’s powerful antioxidant.

Our zinc oxide is non-nano and provides superior sun protection. It’s a powdered mineral that doesn't break down in the sun, sitting on top of your skin, scattering, reflecting and absorbing UVA and UVB rays. It rubs in smoothly without leaving white residue on your skin. It's coral-reef safe, ocean safe and safe for aquatic life.

Non-nano zinc oxide is the Environmental Working Group's first choice for sun protection. It's stable in sunlight and provides greater protection from UVA rays than titanium oxide or any other sunscreen chemical approved in the U.S. (www.ewg.com).

Our Bee Pollen Sunscreen is made without GMO's, parabens, phthalates, fillers, dyes, artificial ingredients or anything else artificial. Our best guestimate as to the equivalent SPF protection your Rooted Wellness Bee Pollen Sunscreen will provide is somewhere in the 30-35 range (please note that we have not laboratory tested this sunscreen, and that we make no warranties or guarantees regarding its exact SPF rating). Use caution and common sense when spending long periods of time under the sun. We suggest you test the efficacy of your Bee Pollen Sunscreen with your own skin tone in short stints before deciding how effectively it works for you. We have been making this for our own family for 10 years and have tested it out and reapplied every 2-3 hours.

Our Bee Pollen Sunscreen comes in a reusable 4 oz amber glass jar.

*Please Note: Beeswax provides a superior barrier from water & sweat. We recommend using caution and reapplying to be on the safe side. It only takes a little bit! One jar will last one child approximately 3 months. Our 4 oz size is the perfect size to throw in your purse, backpack, pool bag, cooler, and diaper bag! Mom tip, our sunscreen has been known to help soother bug bites and diaper rash. In the event you forget to put it on, and get sunburned, use it to help soothe your burn. So many uses!
