SPF 15 Suncare:
- Provides SPF 15 sun protection while moisturising and nourishing your skin.
- Helps skin recover after too much sun exposure, soothing sunburn and hydrating parched skin
- Soothes heat, sun and wind affected skin
- Relieves irritation from rubbing or chafing caused by clothing and/or wetsuits
- A nourishing skin food barrier suitable for sensitive skin
- Independently tested and certified SPF15, filters out 93% of UVB rays providing sun protection factor of 15.
Please note: The rating number relates to how much longer you can stay in the sun without your skin burning. So if your skin would normally start to burn after 15 minutes, then SPF15 gives you 3.75 hours of protection. As with all sun protection products, it should be reapplied after two hours and after swimming/towelling or heavy exercise.

Green Foot Mama holistic multi-use balms are made from natural ingredients to nourish and protect your skin. Caring for you, your family and the planet. Naturally. Leaving a greener footprint.
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL – Raw, unrefined organic coconut oil to nourish and protect your skin. Quickly absorbed, coconut oil forms a lightweight barrier on the skin that helps to retain moisture. It is rich in proteins that keep your skin healthy and rejuvenated and leaves it feeling soft and smooth to the touch.
SHEA BUTTER – Unrefined, Fair Trade, organic Shea butter to richly moisturise and hydrate your skin. Packed with natural vitamins A and E and fatty acids, Shea butter helps to stimulate the production of collagen – an essential protein in maintaining supple and radiant skin. It also helps smooth and soften wrinkles and fine lines.
BEESWAX – 100% pure, locally produced beeswax which creates a barrier to seal in moisture, protecting your skin from the elements while allowing it to breathe. Rich in vitamin A, it improves skin hydration and promotes cell regeneration. Beeswax has powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities, which help to prevent skin damage and irritation.
ZINC OXIDE – 30% uncoated non-nano zinc oxide to provide effective and safe protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. The natural mineral properties of zinc create a physical barrier on the skin to scatter ultraviolet rays and prevent sun damage, photo-aging and wrinkles. A natural astringent, zinc oxide reduces acne-causing bacteria and minimises pores, so you don’t need to worry about breakouts. It also helps treat and prevent skin irritations and burns.
ORGANIC RAW CACAO – Organic raw cacao provides a natural coloured tint to soften the bright white of the zinc oxide, studies show using raw cacao on your skin provides many of the same benefits as eating it. Eating cacao regularly has been shown to extend your ability to not get sunburned by almost double and may also protect against the harmful UV rays that cause cancer. The high levels of antioxidants in cacao prevent free radicals from damaging the skin and help repair skin damage and premature aging. Rich in magnesium, a potent anti-inflammatory, cacao also improves your complexion by soothing redness and blemishes. And it smells delicious!
ESSENTIAL OILS – Pure, high quality essential oils and carefully selected native botanicals for nourishment of your body, mind and soul. Green Foot Mama products are safe to use due to the 1% essential oil dilution of each individual oil.
- Lavender because it is well known as a natural healer for the treatment of burns. It helps relieve the sensations of burning and swelling and can encourage new tissue formation. Lavender promotes relaxation, it also has cooling properties and the smell is divine.
- Chamomile to help cool your body, it both hydrates and moisturises your skin. Chamomile also draws out any feeling of burning, calms inflamed skin, soothes and conditions and helps repair sun damage.
