Homemade Sunscreen Recipe

Ingredients

  • Combine all the ingredients except zinc oxide in a larger glass jar.
  • Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place on the stove over medium heat.
  • Put a lid loosely on the jar and place it in the pan with the water.
  • Shake or stir the jar occasionally to mix the ingredients as the melt.
  • When all the ingredients are completely melted, stir in the zinc oxide, and pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage.
  • Stir a few times as it cools to make sure zinc oxide is incorporated.
  • Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator to increase shelf life.

Notes

  • This sunscreen is not waterproof and will need to be reapplied after sweating or swimming.
  • Make sure not to inhale the zinc oxide. Use a mask if necessary!
  • Add more beeswax to make thicker sunscreen, less to make smooth sunscreen.
    Store in a cool, dry place or in the fridge.
  • I prefer to store in a small canning jar and apply like a body butter. It will be thicker, especially if you use coconut oil in the recipe.
  • Remove the zinc oxide and this makes an excellent lotion recipe!
  • The individual ingredients are considered low SPF and generally quoted at these levels:Almond oil: SPF around 5
    Coconut oil: SPF 4-6
    Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide: SPF 2-20 depending on how much is used
    Carrot seed oil: SPF 35-40
    Shea butter: SPF 4-6Keep out of reach of children and pets.

    As a general rule, always perform a skin patch test before using your essential oils for the first time.
