How to use
SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen 200 g
I’ve always been a ‘fan of the (real) tan’ but as I’ve gotten older have become more sun smart when I know I’m going to be exposed for a prolonged period of time. I also am a lover of natural, low tox ingredients and a hater of synthetic fragrance. From the very first time I tried this product, wow! I love the smell! It feels like such a luxurious product. Yes the consistency has a bit of greasiness but it rubs in nicely and no doubt that contributes to it being water-resistant. I found it to be beach-proof which is great. But seriously, I never knew a sunscreen could be so scrumptious. I now actually want to use sunscreen!
Hi J, Thank you for your wonderful review. We agree the SPF30 Mineral Sunscreen smells divine, feels luxurious and it's great for you and the ocean! Kindly, the P4O team.
I just applied my new SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen for the first time. I'd spent years searching for a non-toxic, all-natural (and organic if possible) moisturiser that doubled as a strong 'natural' sunscreen.
Thank you people4ocean for being that unicorn product.
I love the luxuriously emollient (hydrating) cream which is readily absorbed by my skin. And the essential oil blend provides a dreamy scent. I LOVE this product, and happily purchased it on the brand's environmental credentials. It's my new forever moisturiser.
Thank you Vanessa, we are thrilled to hear you love this product as much as we do! Kindly, the P4O team.
I am pregnant so am trying to reduce my exposure to harmful chemicals. I've tried a bunch of non-toxic sunscreens and this is easily the best. Limited white cast, easier to spread, smells pleasant.
Thank you so much for trusting our product, and congratulations on your pregnancy Isabella!
Love this as our new household sunscreen! Not greasy, easy to rub in and lasts! Will be buying regularly 👍

Thank you for trusting us with protecting your family Katrina! We love reading your wonderful feedback.
Questions and Answers
What does reef-safe mean?
Many sunscreens contain ingredients that wash off our skins (or down the drain) to harm coral reefs, even at very small concentrations. Using a "reef safe sunscreen" means that no ingredients in that product will cause detrimental effects to marine life. That includes coral reefs but also marine mammals, turtles, fish and a variety of marine species. Remember that certain brands falsely claim to be "Reef-Safe" but actually contain chemicals harmful to ocean life, so always check the label for these common toxic ingredients: Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Octinoxate, Homosalate, Octocrylene, Parabens, Triclosan.
Why is this sunscreen yellow?
We infuse this sunscreen with carrot seed oil and beta-carotene. Carrot seed oil (Daucus carota sativa) is a strong antioxidant that is high in vitamins A, C, E and K, making it ideal for mature or sun-damaged skin. We add it to our sunscreen as it is a great emollient and highly nourishing.
How much sunscreen should I apply?
Sunscreen should be the last line of defence after clothing, a hat, shade and sunglasses. Research shows that sunscreens are effective when applied frequently and liberally. The Australian Government Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) recommends at least a teaspoon for each limb, front and back of the body and half a teaspoon for the face, neck and ears every two hours. You should apply one cupped adult hand (30 to 40 ml) of sunscreen for an adult body. When using an aerosol can, remember that some of the sunscreen may not land on your skin. This is also why we don't offer aerosol-type products.
Is it Suitable for Sensitive Skin?
This sunscreens is 100% natural, waterless, preservative & toxic-free. Zinc oxide is recognised by the TGA and FDA as the safest sunscreen ingredient, particularly for sensitive and young skin. This sunscreens is also free of artificial fragrance and lightly infused with a proprietary essential oil blend formulated by our dermal clinicians.
Will I get A White Cast?
We use micronised zinc oxide to minimise white cast although darker skin tones may observe a minor cast. An even application and a little extra rubbing helps blend the creams fully. The presence of carrot oil in the SPF 30 sunscreen allows blending on darker skin.
Sometimes, oil comes first when squeezing the tube. What do I do?
Our sunscreen formulas are 100% natural, and free from synthetics and fillers. One of the biggest challenges with natural sunscreen is the natural (and occasional) separation of the oils from the zinc emulsion. When this happens, we suggest kneading product to address any oil separation that may occur.
Is it Pregnancy and Nursing Safe?
The absence of endocrine and reproductive disruptors in our sunscreens make them safe to use from conception all the way to nursing and on children from 6 months of age.
