Description

I actually try to get at least 15 minutes of sun everyday. Vitamin D is very good for us! That said, there is a point when, too much direct sun is not good. This is when I pull out my SkinShade (non-nano sunscreen).

You might already know that many summer sun products readily available on the market today are packed full of horrific chemicals. In fact, oxybenzone, which is found in 80% of chemical sun care products has been shown to penetrate the skin, cause allergic reactions, and has been shown to disrupt hormones. Eek!

I have a wonderful solution – Pronounce SkinShade (non-nano sunscreen). My lotion is an incredibly smooth, mainly scentless, *non-toxic* one, which is incredibly effective. Because of the types and quality of ingredients I use, you can feel completely safe putting this on your 90 year old grandmother, you infant’s face, and your own skin. In fact, you will be moisturizing your skin by applying it!
______________________________________

Pronounce SkinShade contains the following ingredients…

*Coconut Oil (certified organic)
*Shea Butter (certified organic)
*Beeswax (certified organic)
*Almond Oil (certified organic)
*Zinc Oxide (uncoated, non-nano, and not micronized)
*Vitamin E (non-GMO soy source)

The zinc oxide I use in Pronounce SkinShade is uncoated, non-nano, and not micronized. This all means that there are not nano-sized particles entering your body, which many other products certainly cannot claim. The FDA does not regulate this yet, but I think that they should and I take it very seriously.

Because I use zinc oxide that is not micronized (meaning that the particles aren’t crushed into super small parts that enter our bodies), this is like a thick, incredibly soft lotion. It melts when it hits your skin and it rubs it in beautifully, but it is not thin and runny like other toxic sun protection products. I actually appreciate this very much.
______________________________________

I do not have equipment to scientifically measure levels of SPF, however, through all of the research I have done, I can tell you that this product is at least SPF 20, possibly higher.

Speaking of…did you know that the higher the SPF number does not really mean better coverage? Really, it’s true! Do a quick Google search! I have learned that SPF protection does not increase proportionally to an increase in SPF. For example, an SPF of 2 absorbs 50% of UV rays, SPF 15 absorbs 93%, and an SPF of 34 absorbs 97% of UV rays. Interesting, huh?
______________________________________

**Just like other natural and non-toxic products of this nature, you should reapply this at least every hour or so. I add beeswax to this recipe, which helps it stay on in the water, but like many other products like this, it will come off with lots of water play (and excessive sweating).

Also, this product will “set up” when in cold temperatures and will soften (not melt) when really hot. None of this affects the function of the product, at all. If it gets cold and solidifies, put it somewhere warm and vice versa.

2.3oz, 6oz, & 16oz SkinShades are housed in beautiful recyclable, thick-walled glass jars; 4oz SkinShades are packaged in fantastic recyclable squeeze tubes.

    5 out of 5 Sunscreen of my dreams!

    (verified owner)

    Anyone who knows me is aware that I’m obsessed with sunscreen.

    That’s because I’m very obsessed with preventing skin cancer, wrinkles, dark spots, and sunburns. I always apply sunscreen before I head out the house and I try to remember to grab that one bottle of sunscreen in my backpack after a few hours, but admittedly, I’m always uncertain about reapplying it because of all the chemicals in it. In high school, I heard that sunscreen actually CAUSED skin cancer and I read articles about some of the ingredients in some sunscreen brands were actually shown to be toxic to the skin. There were some brands that were listed to be more safe for the skin, so I just stuck with those.

    But now I have discovered the Pronounce SkinShade, my new sunshade obsession. I had no idea what non-nano zinc oxide even meant until I read the description, which made me order this product immediately even before I was addicted to Pronounce products. I was initially unsure about how effective this product was and figured that I may as well just use it as a day moisturizer if it failed to work since it’s so moisturizing, but let me tell you, when I’m out in the sun for just a few minutes, my face and the back of my neck immediately turns very red and sensitive. I’ve been using this product for the past few weeks and my skin has yet to turn red or feel sensitive even when I’m in the sun for over an hour.

    It works. But even if didn’t work, it’s a great moisturizer!

    This Skinshade face lotion and sunscreen is amazing! I have very sensitive skin — most drugstore brands irritate my skin — but I have no problem using this product. I love it! I use it as my daily moisturizer and get the added benefits of sun protection. My face stays hydrated throughout the day.

    This sunscreen is great! Love that it is non toxic and I don’t have to re-apply when swimming like regular sunscreen. Definitely worth the extra money! Also as a side note, it is very thick, but I find it easier to spread when it’s warm.

    5 out of 5 Love the Sunshade!

    (verified owner)

    I started using the Pronounce Sunshade last summer. We ride motorcycles a lot and I’m pretty pale. I love that this product is all natural and it works just as well as the commercial stuff without all the bad chemicals. It goes on smoothly, like a moisturizer, and is actually great for my skin. I highly recommend it. By the way, thank you for coming out with the 4 oz tube. It’s great for throwing in the saddle bag to reapply when needed.

    5 out of 5 Not Just a Great Sunscreen

    (verified owner)

    Pronounce Sunshade is not only a phenomenal sunscreen, it’s a rich moisturizer too. I put it on my face daily & any exposed areas of my body when going out in the sun whether walking or driving. I’ve had no burns or any issues since using it for the past couple of months. It moisturizers my dry skin perfectly. I have experienced no burning or itching as I have with other sunscreens. Thanks for such a wonderful product.

    I purchased Pronounce Sunshade last year after much research on all natural sunblocks. I was very concerned as to what to use on my very small children. I love the basic ingredients I’m this product and it’s effectiveness. I use it all the time for all activities with my 2 year old and infant and they never burn!!! Love this product!!

    (verified owner)

    I have been looking for a sunscreen without all the nasty chemicals for years. I have an extreme chemical sensitivity . this product is perfect. I like the smell too. I do find I need to reapply it on my nose after a few hours, but that’s a small price to pay for such a great product.

    Purchased a 2 oz tin just to try it out and see if it really worked and so far, it has been wonderful – my whole family loves it! My almost 2 year old is always in the sun and refuses to wear a hat so I’m so happy to have found something that I feel good about putting on his sensitive skin that actually protects him! Thank you! I will be purchasing a larger size now that I feel so confident with it!

    I love this! I have extremely sensitive skin (allergic to almost everything) as well as being very very fair skinned. Best product I’ve used!
    Option suggestion adding 2-5 drops of tea tree oil per 8oz (2 works great but can add more based on preference of scent and cooking effect) it discourages bacteria growth for a longer shelf life and gives a great cooling effect on hot days

    Best sun screen of all time! My son did not get sun burned one time this summer even after spending 8 weeks at day camp! My husband will even use it! Thank you Scratch Mommy for making these products for those of us who do not have the time and/or talent for making them ourselves, but still want to use products we trust without harsh chemicals and generally yucky ingredients!

    Forgot to use my coupon. Scratch Mommy promptly made things right. Pleasant transaction and quick delivery. Love the label design. Love the ingredients. The lotion was very stiff and a bit lumpy but after rubbing it in my hands it “melted” into a divine spreadable body butter like consistency. The zinc oxide made me look a bit white but I’d rather look white than lobster red. lol. Loved the smell. I wore it on the beach (didn’t test in the ocean yet) then went to bed without a shower. I was exhausted for one reason. The other reason is that I felt good about the ingredients remaining on my skin. My skin felt moisturized and soft in the morning. This is a great product. The ONLY thing I would change is accessibility to the product. A deep and wide jar would be my preference. It was a bit difficult squeezing it out of the bottle. I had to take off the lid. Maybe a bottle with a wider spout/opening in the lid. Anyway, will purchase again. Love it. Thank you.
