BRONZE + BLOCK LIGHT | 20% Zinc ☀
This is a bronzing SPF stick that glides on easily and blends in to leave you slightly bronzed, instead of white like many mineral sun blocks. Bear's Beauty also makes a few traditional sun block formulations that are white-based, and they are epic! That being said, I like options and I know you do too.
I don't use fake tanning products, as they can contain a ton of toxic junk, but I also like some bronze on my skin in the summer. I tend to use this on my body and the Medium Tinted SPF on my face. I also occasionally mix this with the Sun Lover's Cream for a lighter color.
I was also tired of gloppy formulas that left me oily and dishonest companies calling their SPF natural when it contains chemical SPF.

For those of you curious about the range, instead of a concrete number; the freshness of the butters and oils has a lot to do with their SPF. Over time, the SPF properties degrade some. SPF testing also requires very expensive testing. Feel free to check out the percentages of Zinc Oxide in similar formulas :0 ) I want to be totally honest with my customers. This is not a Sunblock that you can purchase this summer, and use next year. This cream is made fresh, to order, with fresh ingredients.
Once they are mixed together, you have a 12 month shelf life.
Apply to dry skin and rub in.
Re-apply after swimming and bathing and after sun exposure. I am super pale, when I start to feel the sun on my cheeks, I add more, about every 1.5 - 2 hours.
This is, essentially, colored sun block, and will rub off on clothing. It should wash out, but I would avoid white bathing suits.
If you find the color patchy or hard to blend, try exfoliating and lightly moisturizing first.
Matte Bronze ideal for the palest skin to medium skin tones (approximate SPF 20)

Many items are composed of delicate floral waters and botanical oils. Keeping your items in the fridge and away from direct light will greatly extend the life of the product. This is especially true for Hydrosols + Cremes + Cold Creams + Sprays + Butters (in the summer they may become liquid) + Coconut (Coconut becomes liquid at 76 degrees) + Cremes. I use Radish Root Ferment, a widely used natural preservative, but keeping your items cool + away from light will give you more time to use + love them. Oil-based serums should be stored away from direct light and refrigerated if you will not use within 4 months.
