DIY Sunscreen

Postby JC1 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 7:23 pm

I found this recipe to make sunscreen it looks easy and definitely something I'll always need so I thought I'd share

◾1/2 oz. beeswax granules/pastilles (I believe we found this to be 1/8 cup when we converted it)
◾1/4 cup shea butter (2 oz.)
◾1/4 cup coconut oil (2 oz.)
◾2 Tbsp. zinc oxide powder (1 oz.)

I also found this one for translucent powder (so maybe I can be a little vain, but what a great pick me up if you needed it) :p

In a small bowl combine 1 part cornstarch, 1 part green clay and a bit of cocoa

Thank you for finding and posting this. According to the article, the recipe makes 30 SPF lotion! I am definitely making this. My freckles thank you.

Adding zinc oxide to your favorite lotions will add SPF. I have used a very similar recipe as originally posted on my infant at a water park. I recommend it.
