    • SUNSIFTER SOLAR CREAM  $15

      This product was inspired by an adventurous lifestyle and a need to stay protected from harmful UV rays. Zinc Oxide is a great choice to provide broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB solar radiation. Not only does zinc oxide provide superb physical protection for our skin, it also protects our environment from harmful additives used in chemical based sunscreens. The chemical additives present in synthetic sunscreens are easily washed off after you go for a dip.This can be directly linked to loss of reef habitat in high tourist areas where chemical sunscreens are being applied. Our Sunsifter allows you to keep playing in the sun and know that you are keeping the planet stoked for many waves to come.Sunsifter and zinc oxide create a physical barrier between you and the sun so generously reapply throughout the day and before every water sport session.

      INGREDIENTS: Coconut Oil*, Sunflower Oil*, Calendula Flower*, Maine Beeswax, Zinc Oxide (25%), Shea Butter*, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Essential Oil of Vanilla* (* = Organic)

If you forgot your After Sun Surf Mist don't be afraid to use your Wave Salve on sunburns too! This product is a must on any surf adventure.
