This 100% natural formula contains photo-reflective mineral zinc oxide from The Netherlands, and is also naturally very soothing to skin - making this cream excellent for both protecting skin and (if you're unlucky) post-sunburn treatment.
Raw unbleached Victorian beeswax is what makes the cream stay put and gives it a good water-resistant quality, but as with all sunscreens, reapplication after swimming or excessive sweating is important for maximum efficacy, and wearing appropriate clothing and sunglasses is always a good idea, especially during peak UV times.

About big blue cosmetica.
big blue cosmetica is a local Australian all natural skincare business dedicated to sourcing ingredients locally to celebrate Australia’s native botanical diversity and support local producers, as well as ensure the overall carbon footprint of each product is kept to a minimum. This one woman show began 5 years ago driven by founder Tina’s passion for sustainability and conservation, as well as her profound concern for our precious, ever-threatened natural environment. The range of personal care and household products she has since created have been formulated to be as ecologically sustainable and as zero waste as possible, while being highly effective at doing what they are supposed to, with a strong emphasis on caring for sensitive skin types. All products are entirely vegan (with the exception of some products using locally-sourced beeswax), using certified organic ingredients where available and plastic-free packaging, including paper labels printed with plant-based non-toxic inks and adhesives. All items are lovingly handmade in St Kilda, Victoria, and all orders are shipped Australia-wide entirely plastic free with a carbon neutral delivery service.
