Reef-safe, water and sweat resistant. Tierra & Lava's natural sunscreen is simply 8 nurturing botanicals and 2 minerals that protect skin. Blends easily resulting in long-lasting hydration and making it an excellent option as both a sunscreen and 'after sun' product.

Tierra & Lava's primary mineral (Zinc Oxide) is considered nonallergenic and non-comedogenic. Mineral sunscreen is less likely to irritate sensitive skin since ingredients aren’t absorbed into the skin itself. This cream sits on top of your skin becoming a physical barrier to the sun’s ray and starts protecting your skin immediately after application. Tierra & Lava's sunscreen has been extensively tested, it is gentle and safe on all skin types including children, athletes and outdoor adventurers playing under the sun.

Guatemalan Sourced Ingredients

Made with a combination of Macadamia Oil from a neighboring farm, Cocoa Butter from an organic farm in Izabal, raw sustainably harvested Golden Beeswax from San Cristobal el Alto and cold pressed Coconut Oil from the Rio Dulce region infused with fresh French Marigold petals from our organic garden help your skin retain moisture and protect against the elements. Tierra & Lava's fresh organic Turmeric contains potent anti-carcinogenic compounds and antioxidants and a touch of Vanilla containing Vitamin B adds an uplifting scent. The packaging is a reusable and recyclable plastic-free metal tin.

What is Broad Spectrum?

The FDA recommends using “Broad Spectrum” sunscreen so you will be protected from the two types of light that can harm your skin and cause cells to mutate into cancer: ultraviolet-A (UVA) rays can prematurely age skin, cause wrinkles and age spots, and ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays cause sunburn and skin inflammation. Broad spectrum offers more protection that a higher SPF since SPF currently only measures UVB, and very high SPFs decrease UVA protection. This SPF 15 will protect you from 93% of UVB rays, and although UVA rays are currently not rated, our mineral based broad spectrum sunscreen offers protection from both UVA and UVB rays.

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil, Zinc Oxide, Theobroma cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Tagetes patula (French marigold) flowers, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root & Vanilla Planifolia Bean Absolute. The active ingredient minerals (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) are the only two ingredients currently “generally recognized as safe and effective" in sunscreen by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This non-nano Zinc Oxide means that the particles aren't small enough to penetrate your skin or bloodstream, making it safer for your body.

Gently rub fingers in the balm and generously apply to both face and body. For optimal effectiveness, apply sunscreen at least every 2 hours and even more often if swimming or sweating in intense sun expose.
