How to stay Naturally Sun-Protected

5 Must-Try Products from Our Ethical Beauty Collection

As the temperature rises and the sun shines brighter, it’s important to keep our skin protected from harmful UV rays. While traditional sunscreens are effective, they can often contain chemicals that are harmful to both ourselves and the environment. That’s why we’ve put together a list of five must-try products from our ethical beauty collection that provide natural sun protection without compromising on effectiveness or ethics.


All mineral sunscreen is made with non-nano zinc oxide, which sits on top of the skin to reflect and scatter the sun’s rays. It’s free from harmful chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, making it safe for both your body and the ocean.

Using reef safe sunscreen is important because traditional sunscreens often contain harmful chemicals such as oxybenzone and octinoxate, which can damage and even kill coral reefs and aquatic life. These chemicals contribute to coral bleaching, DNA damage in fish and other marine organisms, and disrupt the balance of delicate ecosystems. Reef safe sunscreens use mineral-based ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are safer for marine life and don’t contribute to coral reef destruction. By using reef safe sunscreen, we can protect our skin while protecting our oceans.

For a lightweight, everyday option, try our tinted moisturiser or a BB cream with SPF. Made with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, it provides broad-spectrum sun protection while hydrating and evening out your skin tone. The subtle tint gives a natural, dewy finish, perfect for those no-makeup days.

Zao BB Cream SPF 20 is your go-to 5 in 1 treatment for flawless skin. Its lightweight yet effective formula offers a natural and light coverage that is perfect for achieving a radiant and natural look. With a natural plant-derived SPF20, this BB Cream is packed with nourishing raw materials that target dehydrated skin and provide lasting hydration.

Not only does it moisturise your skin, but it also helps perfect your complexion by blurring imperfections and reducing redness, leaving your skin looking smooth and revitalized.



Don’t forget about your lips! A good lip balm with SPF that uses a blend of plant-based oils and waxes to nourish and protect your pout. The addition of zinc oxide ensures sun protection for this often-overlooked area.

Using an SPF lip balm is important because our lips are also at risk of sun damage. Lips are a delicate part of our skin that are often forgotten about when it comes to sun protection, but they are just as susceptible to burns and UV damage as the rest of our skin. In fact, lips have thinner skin, no melanin, and no sweat glands, which makes them more vulnerable to damage from the sun’s harmful rays. Sunburned lips can be painful, dry, and even lead to blistering. An SPF lip balm can provide protection against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, helping to prevent sunburn, chapped lips, and other related issues. Plus, using an SPF lip balm can help to keep your lips soft, smooth, and moisturized.

Protect your lips from harmful UVA and UVB rays with Scence Natural Zinc SPF30 Lip Balm. Its broad-spectrum formula ensures even coverage for complete sun protection. The balm goes on smoothly and leaves a transparent finish thanks to its soft and silky texture that spreads easily. Perfect for everyone in the family and all skin types, including the most sensitive. Keep your lips safe and moisturized with Scence Natural Zinc SPF30 Lip Balm.



After sun has several benefits for the skin after being exposed to the sun for an extended period of time. Here are a few:

1. Soothes sunburn: After sun provides immediate relief from sunburns by providing cooling, calming, and soothing effects on your skin.

2. Hydrates the skin: The exposure to sun rays can cause dehydration, which can lead to dry, flaky skin. After sun helps to replenish lost moisture in your skin and restore its natural hydration levels.

3. Reduces inflammation: Sunburn can cause inflammation and redness on the skin. After sun contains ingredients such as aloe vera and chamomile that have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce redness and soothe the skin.

4. Helps prevent premature aging: Sun damage can cause premature aging, including wrinkles and fine lines. After sun products often contain antioxidants such as vitamin E, which can help prevent free radicals from damaging your skin.

5. Promotes healing: After sun can also help prevent peeling and support the skin’s natural healing process while reducing discomfort.

Overall, using after sun is an effective way to soothe, hydrate, and protect your skin after sun exposure.

Scene After Sun Body Balm is a heavenly blend of lavender, peppermint, and chamomile essential oils that work together to provide a soothing, nourishing, and cooling effect on the skin after a day in the sun.

Ok, so technically not a product from our beauty collection, but a sun hat is an essential accessory for natural sun protection. Wearing a sun hat in the sun offers several benefits:

1. Protects your face: A sun hat helps to shade your face, ears, and neck from the sun’s harmful UV rays that can cause sunburn, premature aging, and even skin cancer.

2. Reduces heat exhaustion: Wearing a hat can also help to regulate your body temperature by providing shade and reducing the amount of heat absorbed by your head and face.

3. Prevents glare: The reflective glare from surfaces such as sand, water, and snow can be damaging to your eyes as well as cause headaches or migraines. Wearing a sun hat can reduce the effects of glare while you’re outdoors.

4. Fashionable accessory: Sun hats come in many styles and designs, making them a fashionable accessory while offering protection.

5. Lowers the risk of skin cancer: Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer. As we know, exposure to the sun increases the risk of skin cancer. Wearing a sun hat along with protective clothing, sunglasses and sunscreen can help in reducing the risk of skin cancer.

Overall, wearing a sun hat is an effective way to provide protection from the sun while being a stylish accessory.


So there you have it, five must-try products for staying naturally sun-protected this summer. By choosing ethical beauty options, you can feel good knowing that you’re not only protecting your skin, but also the planet.
