Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are the greatest ingredients to help naturally protect
the skin from the
sun’s harmful rays.
We have incorporated these two ingredients in
our Herbal Sun

Why No SPF Rating?
For some years, the SPF rating has been used as a guide to the effectiveness of sunscreen products. This rating is arrived at in two different ways. The first, and the only way currently accepted by the United States FDA, involves using the product on a test subject, leaving them out in the sun, and finding out how long it takes them to burn. We regard that method as being too much of a risk to the subject. The second way to test is in a laboratory, under controlled conditions. This method is accepted under E.U. law. However, the conditions in a laboratory do not reflect the way the product is actually used, by real people. Also, the performance of a product is affected by the application rate, the skin type, the activity rate, environmental factors and location, none of which are addressed by the standard tests. Therefore, we decided not to include SPF numbers on our products.
We firmly believe a little sunshine does us good. Our everyday lives should not be spent hiding away indoors. However, the potential for our skin to be damaged by the sun is very real. Tests on human subjects in Australia have proved that wearing a sunscreen everyday reduces skin damage, including wrinkles, age spots, and even cancer. Our products contain two physical defenses against sun damage: Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. These are both naturally occurring mineral derivatives, which absorb and deflect the damaging rays of the sun, without being absorbed by the skin. We also include our unique blend of 22 certified organic herbal extracts, LevensESSENTIE Gold to help protect and nourish the skin.
Our advice for safety in the sun is to wear our suncare products every day, remembering that you can burn even in cloudy conditions.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat to shield your face.
Try to avoid the times when the sun is at its strongest.
Re-apply your sunscreen after a swim or exercise.
Stay safe in the sun!
