Basking Beauty Natural Sunscreen SPF50

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, anti-ageing 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.

UVA + UVB Broad Spectrum

Water Resistant for 4 Hours

No Oxybenzone, Octinoxate or Parabens

Vegan and Cruelty Free

Suitable for Adults, Children and Babies

Reef Safe  

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

  • 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 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 photo-protection 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.

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. Do not apply other skincare products over the top of your sunscreen.

Can this sunscreen be used on the face and body?
Yes, this sunscreen provides SPF50 protection suitable for application to both the face and body. It has the bonus of doubling as a hydrating, anti-ageing face moisturiser and body cream too due to its nourishing and antioxidant-rich botanical formula.

Does this sunscreen leave a white mark or residue?
This formula that absorbs well into the skin. Ensure you take some time to massage into the face and body and allow a short period for it to naturally melt into the skin for a seamless finish.

Does your sunscreen contain parabens?
No, we do not believe in using parabens in our sunscreen or any of our product range. Natural ingredients such as medium chain fatty acids and Camellia Seed oil provides a silky that glides on with a smooth finish without the use of nasty parabens.

Does this sunscreen stain clothes?
It should not stain clothes as it does not contain solar absorbers which are known to cause fabric staining. We do in any case encourage you to trial this yourself and be aware that any product has the potential to mark certain fabrics, although unlikely.

Is your sunscreen preservative free?
Yes, we don’t use any chemical or synthetic preservatives in our sunscreen.

Is your sunscreen vegan?
Yes, we do not use any beeswax or animal products in our sunscreen. . We use Candelilla Wax to provide the same texture as would be found in a beeswax product. As with all Edible Beauty products, it is proudly vegan and cruelty-free.

How does zinc oxide protect skin from the sun?
Zinc oxide works as a physical sunscreen. Upon application, zinc oxide particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, where they scatter, absorb, and reflect ultraviolet radiation to protect the skin from UVA and UVB light.

What type of zinc do you use?
We have chosen the highest quality zinc oxide that we have been able to source for our sunscreen. We use microfine or micronised particles in our sunscreen. Microfine particles are smaller than those used in conventional white zinc sunscreens, however are larger than nano-particles- usually in the range of 100 to 2500 nanometres. Note that nano particles are smaller than 100 nanometres. We do not use nano particles in the sunscreen.

How does the texture, look and feel differ from a conventional chemical sunscreen formula?

A natural sunscreen formula needs to create a physical barrier on the skin to protect it from the sun's UV rays. This is why it needs to be slightly thicker than a conventional chemical sunscreen does, as chemical formulas utilise very small particles that absorb into the skin. Although these chemical SPFs may seem to have benefits in terms of texture or absorption, the damaging effects of the toxic ingredients alone are worth making the switch to a natural SPF option.

Basking Beauty is oil based which means we do not need to include a preservative in it. This does make it slightly more "oily" than chemical sunscreens, which can contain harsh preservatives, however as far as natural sunscreens go, Basking Beauty is "non-greasy" after it has been properly applied and blended into the skin.

Is your sunscreen water resistant?
Yes, it is water resistant for 4 hours. We do encourage you to reapply it frequently after swimming or sweating.

From what age can Basking Beauty Natural Sunscreen be used?
Basking Beauty is the perfect natural sunscreen for every age and is a wonderful option for the whole family, including babies. It is safe and gentle on newborns.

Is your sunscreen TGA approved and tested?
Yes.

Is Basking Beauty ‘reef friendly’?
Our formula is proudly free from any of the ingredients responsible for reef damage in the form of coral bleaching including Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, Methyl Parabens, Octocrylene and Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA).

Will this sunscreen clog my pores?
No. This formula uses micronised zinc oxide along with fractionated coconut oil and the carrier oil Camellia Seed Oil which all work to ensure the formula absorbs well into the skin preventing breakouts and the clogging of pores. 

I am experiencing a white residue after application, what can I do?  

Thank you for your feedback. We have a few tips which will be able to assist with ensuring you do not get a white residue after application.

Firstly, ensure you use a very small amount - as a guide, a pea size provides enough coverage for your whole face! This will ensure it absorbs well into the skin.
Please also be conscious of not using any other 'thick' products on your skin prior to using the sunscreen, as this will prevent absorption.

Please remember that this product is a natural sunscreen with pure zinc as the active ingredient. It therefore does differ in general to the texture that people may be used to when they have been using chemical sunscreens.
