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)
WAVE SALVE $15
Wave Salve is designed by surfers who have been through the discomfort of chafed inner thighs, scoured abdomens and relentless wetsuit rashes. Wave Salve is formulated with aloe and organic calendula from our farm to soothe and prevent surf rashes and keep you in the water getting pitted. The savvy will use this salve to prevent surf rash before it occurs, but it also works to alleviate discomfort from existing conditions as well. Apply a liberal coating over vulnerable areas before and after your session to help heal and prevent surf rash. 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.

WIPEOUT BALM $15
If you’re living an adventurous lifestyle you’re bound to take a wipeout or two along the way. In the name of progression, we have had tons of wipeouts ourselves and more to come. The good news is that we make Wipeout Balm for these moments. We infuse Arnica flowers and St Johns Wort, grown on our farm, into every balm to help reduce inflammation, bruising and joint pain associated with most wipeouts. In addition to these potent herbal infusion, we also use the essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary, which are known to cool and help reduce inflammation.
This product isn’t only for wipeouts though. It can be used anywhere you have chronic pain or sore muscles. We really like to use it for massages after long days on the farm, slopes, trail or whatever. Great product to pack on all trips. You’ll be surprised how much it comes in handy. Not intended for use on open cuts and lacerations.
DIRECTIONS: Apply liberally, and gently massage into body bruises, aches, and muscle pains.
