are you informed about your sunscreen? Really?
Do you know that it could cause cancer and it’s bad for the enviroment plus most of them aren’t cruelty free at all?!
Especially when it comes to water resistant sunscreens it’s not that clever, using such products for your or your kids skin. And if you go into the blue after using this may not be the best food for fishes and the water itself. So I guess it’s time for a change…
I dind’t want to buy such a shitty product any longer and decided to DIY my sunscreen and give it a try!
I walked to my favorite store in Munich when it comes to natural cosmetics and their resources: Duft und Schönheit http://www.brennessel-muenchen.de
What you need isn’t any preservative cause my sunscreen preserves itself because it’s just made of oils… WHOLY MOLY! And you reach a sun protection factor of 25! It really worked, the oil protected my boyfriend in Thailand from getting a sun burn if he put on some lotion. He was pissed the other day he forget the lotion and looked like a tiny cute lobster 🙂
The lotion isn’t oily, it really absorbs into the skin very quickly and your skin feels hydrated. It also smells just a bit of coconut oil but just at the moment of putting the lotion on your skin. There will be no danger because of mosquitos.
What you need is exactly this:
– 40g jojoba Oil (natural sun blocker)
– 35g sesame Oil
– a tiny bit of Vitamin E Oil (good for your skin and anti-ageing effect)
– 30g coconut Oil (natural sun blocker)
– 10g Sofi Tix sun protection (natural sun blocker)
– 5g ceralan (consistency builder)
– a bottle for filing up these natural miracle – great if you don’t want to use all of this liquid gold at once, which I could definitely understand 🙂
What you have to do:
Heat the coconut oil and the cerulean so you get a liquid consistency. Mixe all of the ingredients and stir them well. Fill the oil in your favorite bottle ( the best you could choose is made of glass of course 🙂 ).
Now you’re ready for the beach, mermaids!
Have a great and skin safe summertime.
