Natural Seabuckthorn Sunscreen
This Bee By The Sea SPF 30 natural sunscreen uses clear zinc for broad-spectrum protection. It is lightweight and moisturizing, non-greasy and chemical-free. Unlike most zinc or titanium dioxide sunscreens, it won't leave you looking white or pasty. One of the bets anti-aging tips is to apply your sunscreen daily!
To protect skin from UV rays, Zinc Oxide forms an invisible layer on the surface of your skin, stopping most UV rays before they have a chance to reach your body. Because the rays can’t reach your skin, you’re protected from sunburn.
Unlike chemical sunscreens, mineral sunscreens containing Zinc Oxide are not absorbed into the skin. Because they are not absorbed, the active ingredients do not enter the body’s bloodstream and are much less likely to cause an allergic reaction.
Zinc Oxide based sunscreens used to leave a white cast on the skin, making them noticeable on anyone, but especially those with darker complexions. Bee by the Sea is not as whitening as most sunscreens.
Dermatologists and pediatricians recommend Zinc Oxide because it is safe, effective, and less likely to cause skin irritation than chemical sunscreen ingredients.
The Environmental Working Group, a non-partisan organization committed to protecting the health of both humans and the environment, suggests that Zinc Oxide is one of the safest sunscreen ingredients we have.
After sun exposure we recommend using Bee By The Sea Body Cream.

Bee By The Sea Natural Products was founded in 2008 by Andrew Wingrove, in Ontario, Canada. In 2008, after 12 months of research and development, Andrew was ready to launch his signature body cream to the public. To this day, Andrew continues to personally add the key ingredients – unpasteurized honey and Sea Buckthorn – to ensure consistency and quality in every batch.Sea buckthorn oil was found to decrease inflammation after sun exposure and improves skin elasticity. It has a specialized fatty-acid composition. It is a powerful source of omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids. Plus it's a rich source of omega-7 essential fatty acid, which is vital to collagen production. Along with the high presence of antioxidants, it replenishes essential oils and nutrients that promote skin regeneration and speed up wound healing.
