Sol de Ibiza is an all-natural, certified organic and vegan sunscreen. It’s safe and tested for use on sensitive skin and suitable for children, plus it's fragrance free in order to avoid sensitization or allergic reactions during sun exposure. We have chosen to stock this product since it's completely vegan, cruelty free and reef safe. It is made from AIAB certified organic ingredients in the EU and safety tested in the EU under both Vivo & Vitro safety testing.
There are a lot of things that aren't in Sol de Ibiza: no heavy metals, no chemicals, no fragrances, no preservatives. These include:
Non Nano Zinc Oxide (20%) is the mineral sunscreen filter
Organic Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera oil)
Vegan Wax (Euphorbia cerifera cera)
Organic Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis leaf juice)
Organic Sunflower Seed Oil (Helianthus annuus seed oil),
Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil)
Organic Calendula (Calendula officinalis flower extract)
This sunscreen goes on clear and rubs in easily. Being zinc based it is thicker than traditional plastic bottle sunscreens but it is not a thick buttery texture (that can be more difficult to rub in). Packaged in an aluminium tin.
Sol De Ibiza is made to protect people of all ages from sun, wind and pollution in every environment. It is broad spectrum (UVA & UVB) protection for all the family, using Non-Nano Zinc Oxide as a filter. They use certified natural and organic ingredients, including Aloe Vera from Ibiza. They never use fragrances or preservatives, they're vegan, never tested on animals, reef-safe plus they only use plastic-free packaging.
What is mineral and reef safe sunscreen?
Chemical sunscreens have ingredients (oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate) that may potentially cause health problems and damage the ocean eco-system. In the past decade or so, multiple studies have shown that certain chemicals used in typical sunscreens can cause bleaching of coral.
Instead, mineral sunscreens, use natural minerals as active ingredients. These minerals simply sit on top of your skin and protect it by reflecting away UV rays. Zinc oxide is truly a broad-spectrum blocker. That means it protects you and your family from both UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen uses non-nano particles meaning they are larger than nano-particles. There are health concerns that nano particles cause stress and damage to the body’s cells.
