Organic Sun Lotion
Natural sunscreens from Green People
Discover gentle, natural sun protection with Green People's organic SPF15 and SPF25 sunscreens. Made without harsh or pore-clogging ingredients, they offer effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection whilst being kind to your skin.
How do they work?
Key ingredients in our natural sunscreens include Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide, both naturally derived minerals, which reflect harmful UV rays away from the skin. We also use cinnamic acid esters (natural plant acids) which absorb UV rays to reduce their impact on the skin.
Other key ingredients include Edelweiss, a plant with natural UV protective properties, as well as antioxidant-rich Green Tea and Rosemary to reduce free radical damage caused by sunlight.
Gentle on sensitive skin
Our organic sun lotions are ideal for those with sensitive skin and may also be suitable by those prone to prickly heat, eczema and psoriasis.
Nourishing natural sunscreens
Green People’s natural sunscreens are packed with nourishing ingredients which benefit the skin, along with natural antioxidants and skin vitamins including Green Tea, Avocado and Vitamin E. These support the skin’s immune system and protect against the cell damage which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.
Our sun lotions offer broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection and we are proud to be one of the few natural sun care brands which surpassed the levels set by new EU regulations. We use natural ingredients such as the earth mineral Titanium Dioxide and cinnamon extract to protect your skin from these damaging rays.
Organic sun care for adults, children and those with sensitive skin
Green People’s ultra gentle sun lotions offer different levels of protection, helping you and your family tan more naturally and safely. All of our organic sun creams are made using in excess of 84% certified Organic ingredients and with no PABA or Parabens, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin.
With options for all skin types and ages – even for the younger members of the family - we have products for everybody.
Why not try our SPF15 sun lotion with tan accelerator? This uses a natural extract from the fruit of the carob tree which increases your ability to tan, giving a great natural colour faster and safely. The deeper tan, caused by more melanin in the skin, is also your body’s natural protection from UV rays.
Do I get twice the protection by using a sunscreen SPF30 compared to SPF15?
The answer is No! SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and measures the protection against UVB provided by a sunscreen. An organic sun lotion with SPF15, when applied properly, protects you against 93% of UVB. An SPF 30 sun lotion protects you against 97% UVB. In reality, the level of additional protection offered by SPF ratings higher than 25 is insignificant as even at SPF25, only 4% of the UVB light is getting through to the skin.
It is more important to apply enough sun cream and to keep reapplying! Always reapply every 2 hours and after swimming or strenuous activity.
Keep your tan for longer with moisture-binding After Sun lotion
