It is important to wear protective clothing such as long sleeves, hats and protective eyewear when exposed to the sun. Store below 30˚C.
The Wild Rosella is known for its ability to tolerate extreme environments, which reflects on how it works with our skin. The calyx that surrounds the flower (typically a green outer layer that encloses the flower) works to protect it from drought and other environmental stressors during its development, aka transferring hydration to the flower. Well, our Wild Rosella Sunscreen SPF 50+ works in the same way as the calyx, providing protection and hydration to your skin.
Our foremost priority is to protect your skin from UVA & UVB rays and the real risk of developing skin cancer and deadly melanomas. Our Wild Rosella Sunscreen SPF 50+ formula uses a combination of chemical (organic) filters that work in unison together to block the broad spectrum of UV light. It is designed to feel like a moisturiser with added hydrating ingredients such as Wild Rosella Extract, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.
In 2018 the Hawaiian Government banned the use of two UV filters in sunscreens. The US state of Florida has now followed. This was a decision based on years of worldwide scientific research on the effect of sunscreen ingredients on reef ecosystems.
Oxybenzone and Octinoxate were found to have enough evidence against them to suggest that damage was possible when using these ingredients. There was no scientific evidence that any other ingredients in sunscreens were of concern. Whereas we respect the decisions made by the Hawaiian government and have decided not to use the particular UV filters they have banned, we do not believe the issue is as simple as this.
It is important to note that there are no regulations around companies using the term “reef safe”, as there have been multiple studies done, both for and against which ingredients are deemed “safe” for our reefs. Many people have different understandings of what this term means, which is why we choose to steer clear of using this claim.
