Natural Sunscreen FAQ:
Is your sunscreen preservative free?
Yes. 123 Nourish Me don’t use any chemical or synthetic preservatives in hello sunshine… and by that they mean Nothing. Zero. None. Nada. Zilch. Zip.
Does your sunscreen contain parabens?
Absolutely not. 123 Nourish Me don’t believe in using parabens within any of their product range. Parabens are possible endocrine disrupters and while they are what gives the sunscreen a smooth glide on finish they believe they've have been able to achieve this by using naturally based ingredients like beeswax and fractionated coconut oil.
Does this sunscreen stain clothes?
It should not stain clothes since it does not contain organic solar absorbers which are renowned for fabric staining. However, this is fabric dependent and they encourage you to test this for yourself as they cannot offer guarantees about clothes staining.
Is your sunscreen nano or non-nano?
123 Nourish Me have chosen a zinc oxide within their sunscreen that is not a nano zinc oxide. However, the sunscreen may contain minute amounts of nanoparticles. To explain, all powders contain nanoparticles in small amounts, every zinc oxide source will contain low concentrations of sub nanoparticles, this has always been the case. The zinc oxide that they use is called ‘micronised zinc oxide’, this means that it is not predominantly nano. 123 Nourish Me don’t believe other brands can ethically claim a zinc based sunscreen is 100% non nano. 123 Nourish Me know that their sunscreen has the best quality zinc available on the market with the lowest chance of nano particles. 123 Nourish Me have chosen the highest quality zinc oxide that they have been able to source for their sunscreen.
Is your sunscreen water resistant?
Yes, but as per instructions needs to be re-applied frequently after swimming.
From what age can I use hello sunshine?
Hello Sunshine is the perfect natural sunscreen for babies. It can be used safely from 6+ months.
Is your sunscreen TGA approved and tested?
Is Hello Sunshine ‘reef friendly?
There is some scientific evidence that oxybenzone, a sunscreen active, could be contributing to coral bleaching. 123 Nourish Me don’t use oxybenzone in any of their products and they don’t use any oxybenzone in Hello Sunshine Natural Sunscreen.
How much sunscreen should I use?
Sunscreen needs to be applied 20 minutes before going outdoors. When applying sunscreen, you need at least one teaspoon per limb, one for the front of the body, one for the back and one for the head. A full body application should be at least 35mL or seven teaspoons. Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours if you are spending time outdoors. As sunscreen can be easily wiped off, lost through perspiration you should also reapply after swimming, sweating or towel drying.

The Good Stuff in Hello Sunshine Natural Sunscreen:
Zinc oxide is a powdered mineral that sits on top of the skin, scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA & UVB rays. Zinc Oxide is a highly effective active sunscreen ingredient to give broad spectrum protection.
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has a natural SPF. Like coconuts themselves, coconut oil is rich in essential fats. These essential fats are thought to keep the skin healthy and rejuvenated. Coconut oil is often used as a moisturiser for the skin. We adore coconut oil and use it in many of our products.
We only use natural organic beeswax in our products. Beeswax forms a protective barrier on the skin to guard against irritants and lock in moisture. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, beeswax doesn’t suffocate the skin and won’t clog the pores. Bees are amazing and are in great danger around the world. Bees are not harmed during this process of the removal of the wax. We adore and respect our bees!
Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis). We use castor oils because of it’s high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids. Castor oil has many powerful benefits on the skin and we use it because of it’s natural protection.
Apply evenly onto dry skin 20 minutes prior to sun exposure. Re-apply every 2 hours and at regular intervals especially after swimming, exercise or towel drying. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear protective eyewear & clothing. Avoid contact with eyes. Patch test first and discontinue use if irritation occurs.
