Why we love it
We love this plastic-free sun cream because it contains only natural ingredients and moisturises whilst protecting skin from the sun at a perfect SPF25. Plus, it comes in a handy 100ml travel size tin so no problems with liquid restrictions at the airport!
This 3-year award-winning sun cream from Shade is non-greasy, 100% natural ingredients and a little goes a long way (example: a pea-sized amount will cover a forearm). This is a great product for sensitive skin with no chemicals like regular sun creams.
When you swim with conventional sunscreen on, chemicals like oxybenzone can seep into the water, where they’re absorbed by corals. These substances contain nanoparticles that can disrupt coral’s reproduction and growth cycles, ultimately leading to bleaching.
Even if you don’t swim after applying sunscreen, it can go down drains when you shower. Aerosol versions of sunscreen can spray large amounts of the product onto the sand, where it gets washed into our oceans.
With an estimated 14,000 tons of sunscreen ending up in coral reefs each year, it's important to swap to products that won't harm underwater ecosystems.
Apply generously. Works immediately. Reapply regularly at least every 2-3 hours or after exposure to water or after sweating. Check out our blog for more information on how to use natural sunscreens safely. Once opened, use Shade within 12 months, otherwise, it has a shelf life of three years.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Unfortunately I found the product smelt so off putting that I couldn't bear to have it on. Smell isn't everything but it was that off putting that I just couldn't stand it. I also got a little on my patio slabs over 6 weeks ago. Despite all kinds of weather, a scrub with soap and a broom and a blast from the hose it's still there, untouched. I dread to think what would happen if it got on fabric. This product clearly has worked for others but it's really not for me. I would recommend trying the travel size first just in case.
I bought this for two of my children to use this year. My son’s nose and eyes start streaming when I use regular sun lotion on him, and my daughter has eczema, so I gave this a try. One tub lasted them for our two week holiday in Turkey, and the occasional high UV day over the summer here, so it goes a very long way. It works extremely well, and even in Turkey, one application was enough to last the whole day, even after swimming. I highly recommend this product.
Love this sunscreen, feels great on skin, works, smells good, nice packaging. A little goes a long way.
This is a natural product so it works in a different way to traditional chemical based sunscreen but I love it! We're on holiday at the moment and chose this product because traditional suncreens have chemicals in them which are dangerous to marine wildlife and coral.We're surfers so spend a lot of time under the sun on the water and didn't even burn for the first time. It's made from shea and coconut butter so it's quite thick when you put it on and you need to work it in otherwise it will leave you white because of the zinc, but it's amazing! Definitely recommended
