Homemade Sunscreen Lotion

I’ve definitely loved making and utilising my own selfmade sunscreen lotion bars without the entire poisonous components. However this 12 months I wanted to take a look at my hand at some squeezable sunscreen lotion instead. This is greatly for the reason that home made Daddy has requested this many many times!


I stopped up getting the rush I needed to just go ahead and make them once I saw a excellent recipe from Emily over at Holistic Squid. And, as many of you saw in my facebook workforce, I obtained relatively a burn the day past so I fairly needed to get this made for the summer time ASAP. No extra excuses! I like the aroma these targeted foremost oils give to the lotion however the zinc is what offers it the SPF.

I utilized some today and it went on smooth and effortless and felt very much like the store bought sunscreen. I used to be pleased this made sufficient to fill three tubes: one to send with my daughter to tuition, one to throw in my purse, and one for selfmade Daddy.
