Beau Soleil (30+ SPF Sunscreen)
This item is now available by pre-order only, to ensure that you get the very freshest, toxic preservative free item. Order now, and we manufacture on the 15th of each month and ship immediately afterwards!
We also take pre-orders for Moisturizing Whips, Precious Face Milk, and Mag(nificent) Lotion. You can also join our Non-Toxic Lotion Club and get the scent of the month whip automatically!
Most sunscreens are filled with endocrine-disrupting chemicals that aren't actually effective against UVA *and* UVB anyway. The only safe sunscreen is a mineral-based one (we use zinc oxide) and the particles of the zinc oxide need to be at least 90 nanometers (nm) to be considered safe (otherwise known as "non-nano-particle"). Our zinc oxide is 150 nm, meaning it is safe for everyone in your family!
We make ours at 30 SPF, with no fragrance or unnecessary ingredients, in a 4 oz glass jar. Because we make natural products with no extra chemicals, we package in sizes to allow you to go through the formula in a reasonable amount of time. This bottle should last one person 3 months with daily use. It's also a great size for a family on vacation!
Beau Soliel is one of several products we make for summer outdoor living. Be sure to also check out Disco Inferno (for burns, baby- BURNS!), Bug Off!, (our much beloved safe bug spray), and A Jewel of a Salve (for Poison Ivy and bug bites).
(Real) Ingredients: Spring Water, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fair Trade Shea Butter* Zinc Oxide, Emulsifying Wax (vegan)*, Vitamin E Oil.

We use real pronounceable ingredients that are ethically sourced and high quality for your product.
We either grow or work with local growers to source for our formulas. This supports the local economy, gives us the most potent plants, & reduces
reliance upon fossil fuels.
We make products from herbs that will grow here over herbs from the Amazon, China, or Africa. Oftentimes, those trendy herbs are taken in an unsustainable way & local people do not have access to their native medicines any longer. Bioregional herbalism is where it's at!

Specifics for all products are in our FAQ (click the question mark in the lower right, then choose "formulation questions").
Herbal remedies, supplements, and tonics are fundamentally different
from pharmaceuticals (and we like it that way). They are designed to
restore your body and its systems to homeostasis gently- working with
We post basic dosage guidelines, but keep in mind if you have more body mass or a faster metabolism than the average bear, you may need to take a larger dose than indicated. If there are hard-and-fast limitations on how often you can take the product, it will
be listed on the package. Most can be used up to six times daily
without problems (but we doubt that you would need to do that).
Remember, there are no "magic bullets" in life, and any product (herbal, pharmaceutical, or otherwise) claiming 100% success without knowing you, your constitution, and your lifestyle is lying and trying to get into
your wallet. Often, herbalists (and MDs) need to try several products
before we find the one that works for your unique biochemistry.
Feel free to email us if the product didn't quite do the job, we can
recommend another that could do the trick. We are blessed with many
plants that have the same action in the body- and often it's just a
matter of finding the right one for you.
