A Bit Hippy

A Bit Hippy Sunscreen SPF 40 Vegan 120g

We all love some sunshine but we know that too much sun isn’t good for anyone, unless you want to end up with skin like our Guru (he says he's only 104 but we think he looks more like 144!). We've created a  Clear Zinc-Oxide based sunscreen so your skin stays healthy and as young looking as possible.

We don’t use UV filters. We show all our ingredients right here, not just the "actives". 


Why Do We Use Zinc Oxide as Our Sunscreen Active?

Good question although we aren't allowed to answer it. In Australia, Sunscreens are a "therapeutic product "and there are strict guidelines as to what we cannot say  under advertising guidelines. 

"We would love to be able to give more information about our sunscreen that took years to get just right. But again there is verylittle we are allowed to say due to advertising guidelines concerning sunscreen. Remember though we are only an emaiil away to answer any questions you have persnally. Do your sunscreen research as we aren't allowed to provide the answers.

Do sunscreens need to show all their ingredients? Nope...yep its those regulations again that mean only the actives and preservatives are shown. But we show them anyway as we are proud to.  They are listed below. 

Our sunscreen is naturally UVA and UVB broad spectrum. We spent a long time on the formula because we wanted to make sure it was the least oily and greasy formulation possible using only ingredients that fitted in with our philosophy.

Suitable for hippy bubs to rockin' grandmas. 


Give it a moment. The best things in life take a little more time. 

You may find it is a little difficult to get the first pump out. This is because it is quite thick as we have chosen to use Clear Zinc.  You can think of it like a thick shake (it always takes a little more effort to get the first sip through the straw!) So to get that first pump out, give the bottle a little shake and a few pumps then repeat.

Put  sunscreen onto the skin 20 minutes before sun. Then give it 30 seconds to warm to skin temperature and and smeer lightly. The warmer it gets, the clearer it gets. 

Always Read the label. Use Only as Directed.
