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 15ml pocket size tin so its great for topping up on a day out.
This 3-year award winning sun cream from Shade is non greasy, 100% natural ingredients and a little goes a long way - Check out the reviews below. 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.

The size of the tin compared to what you pay is surprisingly small. It is good value though as Iâ€™ve used it several times and barely made a dent in it although this is just on feet, forearms and face; it works really well. I find if I put too much on your skin feels greasy but it seems to protect my skin with less. I have sensitive skin but have no problem with this sunscreen. It goes on really smoothly and spreads well.
"I bought this in St Ives , read a leaflet , it sounded great so we bought one What a fabulous cream ! All natural , melts into the skin , gives excellent protection , you only need a small amount , and itâ€™s handbag size too ! Beach , walk , surf whatever your travel plans - this is a little good tin of skin happy stuff x will buy again and again "
"A wonderful little tin to carry in a handbag! I like the fact that all the ingredients are natural and not harmful to the skin. I've used it regularly and the tin still is really full. Just rub one or two fingers around the cream to soften it, then apply evenly. At last I've found natural sun protection! Next time I order this product I'll buy the 100ml size and use it before I go out & keep the small tin in my handbag for topping up purposes."
I have a tin of this I carry it in my pocket as I'm out all day, I have very fair sensitive skin, it seems to work well. ðŸ˜Š
