This product is not a sunscreen nor a sunblock but rather a skin protecting cream with Zinc Oxide; one of only 18 or so active ingredients currently approved by the FDA for use in sunscreens. This cream has no SPF factor as it has not been tested in a certified lab but rather at the beach.
This product has not been evaluated by the FDA – Food and Drug Administration, and is not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease. It is not intended to represent or replace professional medical advice.
In cold weather, product may be a firmer consistency; before application, please warm the amount of product to be used in your hand. In hot weather, the ingredients have a naturally low melting point and may need to “firm up” by refrigerating the salve for 15 minutes prior to use.

Our family has been using this sun shield for a little over a year and we LOVE it. I have vitaligo and I don’t burn anywhere after hours out weeding and working in the yard (we live in the desert) Martha has tweaked the recipe and it’s even better/smoother than it was. Love the light scent of the oils and butters.
Michelle, thank you for your feedback! I am happy that you and your family are using our product with good benefit.
