    Protective — Nourishing — Hydrating

    Meet the sunscreen of your dreams...

    Bask in the beauty of our pure, ocean-friendly sunscreen formula providing broad spectrum SPF50 UVA/UVB protection with zinc oxide. This moisturising, age-defying sunscreen effortlessly glides onto the skin easily and is enriched with Vitamin E and Rosehip Oil to nourish the skin and provide a hydration boost. Basking Beauty is the ultimate plant-based, botanical and luxurious sunscreen. 

    Pure SPF50 Protection. Our broad spectrum 100% natural zinc formula provides SPF50 sun protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

    Beautifying. More than just a sunscreen, Basking Beauty unleashes a wave of hydrating and collagen supporting actions with botanical actives Kakadu Plum, Vitamin E and beta carotene, so it doubles as a beautifying and anti-ageing face moisturiser or body lotion.   

    Multi-Purpose. Basking Beauty is suitable for the whole family, including newborns. It can be applied to both body and face.

    Blendable Formula. This natural emulsion blends into the skin, without leaving a thick white cast. Basking Beauty is designed to slip effortlessly into the rest of your beauty routine. Rub in well so your skin absorbs it for best results.

    If you are used to using conventional chemical formulas, you may notice this natural sunscreen differs as it does rely on creating a physical barrier on top of the skin to protect you from UV rays. As a result it takes a little more time to massage into the skin, however, we believe doing this is well worth the benefits of non-toxic sun protection. We recommend you read the FAQ at the bottom of the page if you want further information on Basking Beauty Natural Sunscreen. If you are interested in the dangers of chemical sunscreens, read here.

    • Water Resistant for 4 Hours

    Beauty Benefits

    Ultra-hydrated and nourished skin with SPF50 protection. Anti-ageing actions through collagen-supporting ingredients.

  • Botanical Actives

    Zinc Oxide is a natural, physical sunscreen which creates a layer on top of skin that blocks ultraviolet rays like UVA1, UVA2 and UVB. It is stable in chlorine and will not degrade to cause harmful free radicals, skin irritation or hormone disruption. This is as opposed to chemical SPFs which absorb them before they can cause any harm. Zinc Oxide helps to keep moisture locked into the skin.

    Camellia Seed Oil provides exceptional hydration and absorption without greasiness. It is abundant in vitamins C, D, and E along with Omega 6 and 9 and anti-ageing polyphenols, which provide deep nourishment to your skin, youth-preserving actions and a velvety smooth finish.

    Vitamin E One of the key antioxidants when it comes to sun protection, Vitamin E works to neutralise free radicals caused by exposure to UV light and other collagen-damaging molecules. It also assists in absorbing UVB light, the spectrum of sunlight that’s responsible for burning and ageing skin.

    Kakadu Plum Extract Kakadu Plum is native to Australia and known for being the highest plant-based source of Vitamin C. This makes this wild-harvested botanical exceptional for boosting collagen production, combating free radical damage and providing photoprotection from UV A and B damaging light.

    Rosehip Seed Oil Rosehip Seed Oil is one of the richest plant-based sources of beta-carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A and our skin’s natural battalion when it comes to fighting the signs of ageing. Considered a cellular regenerative oil, Rosehip is known for its ability to enhance skin repair and reduce inflammation.

  • Application & ingredients

    Application

    Apply evenly onto the skin as the last step in your skincare routine 20 minutes prior to sun exposure. Use a small amount of the cream and rub in well. Re-apply every 90 minutes and at regular intervals especially after swimming, exercise or towel drying. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and contact with eyes. Suitable for face and body. Also suitable for children and babies.  *Note makeup can be used on top of this sunscreen if desired.

The best sunscreen and I've gone through many!

I will not use any other sunscreen. I must say that the new formula is better and not as shiny and rubs in easier. It looks good under makeup and really protects you from the sun without causing any breakouts. No offensive smell either. Honestly, I cannot live without this sunscreen!

HG!!

I love this sunscreen, regardless of the finish!

Some light setting powder over it takes away any shine you may have left.. it has not contributed to any breakouts like other sunscreens I've used (I feel like I've used them all)

It's so hard to find a sunscreen that fits you as a breakout prone/combination skin type!

It also sits well on top of skincare and under makeup!

Would repurchase 💯💯💯💯💯

best sunscreen ever

I have been using this fabulous sunscreen for about 2 years and I wear it EVERY day as I live near the beach. It glides onto my skin and is not sticky at all. Even my dogs love it - as soon as they smell me applying it, they know it's a sign they are about to go for a walk on the beach.- see photo

You're onto a Winner

Sadly, I was diagnosed with Melanoma a few months ago at 32yrs old... as you can imagine, smothering my face with commercial sunscreens all day has created horrendous outbreaks and has been a real blow to the self-esteem.

As soon as this sunscreen was released, I knew it was what my skin desperately needed and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it (thanks for the Bday voucher EB!!)

I LOVE IT

Not only do I get the protection I need but it's also so kind to my skin and the outbreaks have finally started to settle.

The zesty scent is great emotional support too, what a winner! Highly recommend

Will forever repurchase

I have your typical dry sensitive skin that reacts to almost anything I put on it. I have not had a reaction to this product. It’s so gentle on the eyes and does not have that disgusting sunscreen taste. It’s moisturising without feeling like sunscreen. Will purchase this time and time again. Will recommended to others every single time. I’ve never bothered to review a product before but felt this was definitely worthy of a review. First time user fully converted to basking beauty natural sunscreen.

Questions & answers

Ask a question
  • Is this to be used in conjunction with moisturizer or in place of? Asking for my oily skin folks...

    We recommend that you continue to use a moisturiser prior to your sunscreen application. This gives your skin the optimal nourishment, hydration and antioxidant boost required on a daily basis. For oily skin, the Soothing Nectar - Hydrating Gel is the perfect choice as it contains oil balancing botanicals. Wait for a minute for this to dry before applying the Basking Beauty Sunscreen.

  • Can this be used on toddlers?

    Yes definitely - it is suitable for babies and children

  • Does it protect from Blue Light?

    The sunscreen can definitely help with blue light due to the zinc oxide which provides "physical" protection against UV and HEV rays.

    The other product I recommend is our Glowing Skin Smoothe Serum as that works as an "anti-pollution" product providing a high level of antioxidants to combat free radical damage from blue light.

  • My sunscreen tube seems to have a lot of air?

    This is normal! Do not worry, the volume of sunscreen in the tube is 100 grams. The extra air in the tube is deliberate and is required to squeeze/emulsify the formula which can sometimes separate.

  • Is this sunscreen TGA approved?

    Yes, our Basking Beauty SPF50 Sunscreen is TGA approved!!! You can find the number on the bottom of the tube.
