Sun Cream (natural)
Natural Sun Cream
30g | 80g
Are you worried about putting traditional over-the-counter suncream onto your skin because of the toxic disruptors in them? Do they make your skin itchy or break out afterwards? Maybe it's a daily battle to apply sun protection to your children?
We had the same experience here in our family. Add to that the fact that we were still getting sun burnt while using those traditional suncream lotions, it was time to look at alternatives.
Our sun cream is made from plant based, pure ingredients of the highest quality to give you the physical protection you need from the sun without the nasty chemicals and side effects. Each ingredient has been chosen for its natural sun protective qualities, to give you peace of mind that your families skin is safe, from the sun and also any synthetic chemicals!
Our customers have found their My Essential Alchemy Sun Cream is great for the whole family across the spectrum of different skin types and tones. Children and adults with sensitive skin love that it can be easily applied (like a moisturiser) and it is so gentle on their skin. Although zinc based, it does not leave a white film over your skin.
Our products are concentrated and do not contain any fillers, so a little goes a long way!
How to use this product:
Rub a small amount of cream over all skin that will be exposed to the sun. Ensure it is rubbed in thoroughly like you would a moisturiser and that you get a complete coverage of skin. This is safe to use on the face and body, avoiding the eyes and for external use only. It can be used by all ages from 6 months of age. We advise that you reapply every 2 hours, but due to the difference in skin types and climate, this is a guide only.
It is still recommended that you follow all sun safety rules when exposed to the sun and wear a hat, glasses and protective clothing. Avoid the harsh midday sun when possible.
In the unlikely event of skin irritation please discontinue use.
Store below 30⁰C in a cool, dry spot out of direct sunlight.

Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil.
Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.
Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.
It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.
We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.
Variation in natural products
You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
At My Essential Alchemy, our hand crafted products and raw ingredients are carefully selected due to their natural, safe and effective properties. Despite this, caution must always be taken when handling ingredients in their raw state such as fine powders and undiluted essential oils. Take appropriate precautions for your project, such as wearing gloves, a face mask or working in a ventilated room to preserve your health.
As always, if you experience any irritation, sensitivity or discomfort discontinue use.
When making your own homemade products or storing raw ingredients please ensure that bottles/bags/jars are stored correctly, clearly labelled and kept out of reach of young children.
Our recipes have been tested and trialed a number of times to ensure their accuracy and effectiveness. If you add your own flair to these recipes please use your common sense as to the safety, cleanliness and effectiveness of the final product. My Essential Alchemy will not be held responsible for any products made using our recipes, loss or injury that may occur from making/using our recipes or failed attempts to follow the DIY recipes.
We are proud to use ingredients of the highest quality and have full disclosure on everything that is used in our products. It is up to the consumer to check products for their full list of ingredients prior to purchasing, to ensure is does not contain any known allergy causing substances.
