Description

Remember when life guards had white gloppy paste smeared all over their noses? Yeah, well, neither do we, but we've seen pictures of it. That was zinc oxide, an inorganic substance that harmlessly sits atop your skin and helps absorb and block harmful UV rays. Our Life Guard Organic Sunscreen uses that same burn-saving substance, but we've formulated it in such a way that it rubs in easily, and nearly completely, leaving no greasy-residue, and only just faintly lightening your skin tone a bit (when selecting "Original" zinc oxide level).

This listing is for one 8oz glass jar of our Life Guard Organic Vegan Body Sunscreen.

If you need a facial sunscreen, check out this one www.etsy.com/EmpireSquid/listing/207804903

Ingredients: Organic Shea Butter, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Macadamia Nut Oil, Non Nano Zinc Oxide, Candelilla Wax, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, and Vitamin E.

This is the vegan version, get it with beeswax here: www.etsy.com/EmpireSquid/listing/199733140

While our best guestimate as to the equivalent SPF protection your Life Guard Organic Sunscreen will provide is somewhere in the 15-25 range for "original" and higher for "extra protection," please note that we have not laboratory tested this sunscreen, and that we make no warranties or guarantees regarding its exact SPF rating. Always use caution and common sense when spending extended periods of time under the sun, regardless of what you use to protect yourself.


|| Zinc Oxide Protection Levels ||

"Original" will have a good amount of zinc oxide, but not so much that you're left pasty white.

With "Extra Protection" we increase the zinc oxide by 50% for extra protection, but you'll probably notice that you look a bit paler.


|| Essential Oils ||

Your sunscreen will come with our Minty Lavender essential oil option by default. If you would like something different, simply let us know in the "Note to EmpireSquid" box after your purchase.

Minty Lavender is a mild mix of organic lavender essential oil and organic peppermint essential oil. Two essential oils thought to help guard your skin from the sun as well as repair and heal sun damaged skin. This combo will smell rather minty lavender-y.

Feel free to request no essential oils or different essential oils as you so desire.

~~I am really liking this sunscreen. I like the fact that it is moisturising as well.~~

~~love love love love~~


|| Ingredient Details ||

This simple, effective sunscreen uses the powerful UV screening abilities of non nano zinc oxide which is a broad spectrum (blocking both UVA and UVB radiation), non chemical UV inhibitor. We also use organic macadamia nut oil and organic coconut oil because they're not only easily absorbed and great for your skin, but are also thought to provide an SPF of about 5-10 on their own. Shea butter is great for your skin helps keep your sunscreen creamy and easy to apply. In addition, shea butter is thought to confer an SPF of around 4.

Since there is absolutely nothing artificial and no preservatives in your lotion except for the natural preserving properties of vitamin E, please keep in mind that your lotion will not keep forever. We recommend you use your lotion within 8 months, longer if you keep it in the fridge (where it will get quite firm). Your lotion should be kept out of direct sunlight and large fluctuations of temperature should be avoided.

FAQs

Since we make all of our products to order, we can easily fulfill your custom requests. Just contact us if you need to omit or change any of the ingredients in one of our goodies; We make minor and major customizations for our customers all the time.
Our completely natural facial and body butters may liquefy in hot (over 85 F) environments. Liquefaction will in no way harm your lotion, and simply tossing it in the fridge for a night or two will bring it back to its intended texture. Please keep in mind that shipping to or through hot climates, particularly in the summer months, may result in a liquefied lotion.
While we do not offer gift-wrapping, per se, your goodies will come neatly wrapped in a simple cardboard box (or USPS Flat-Rate box for large orders) hand stamped with our unique, and kinda funky, custom-made stamps.

If you'll be shipping your purchase as a gift, we can include a note - simply let us know exactly what you'd like the note to say: contact us through an Etsy convo, or leave us a note during checkout in the "Note to EmpireSquid" box. There is no charge for this.
We use fresh, all natural ingredients with no artificial preservatives added to any of our creations. Most listings will include the estimated shelf life for each individual product: typically between 3-6 months.

We use fresh, natural raw ingredients which we order on a monthly basis. Our products are a bit like fresh food: use 'em or lose 'em.

For the majority of our items, which are completely oil based with no added water (our toners & washes are exceptions to this), the product may begin to develop an 'old oil' smell if used beyond its shelf life due to oxidation of the oils. It will still be perfectly usable, but may not smell so great. Mold will only occur if water is accidentally introduced into the product container during use.
Not of our main product line. We do have this sample-size listing for single oils if you're interested in experimenting this way: www.etsy.com/listing/228590123

Since we make everything to order, and thus don't have a large batch to simply scoop out a bit from, it's not really feasible for us to offer samples of our handmade products. We do get asked for samples quite a bit, and we certainly understand why, but they're simply not something we can offer while keeping our shop handmade to order and easily customizable, which is important to us.

If you have any specific questions about a certain product or would like to try and pinpoint what might work best for your skin type, just convo us and we'll discuss it!
Not really.

We do, occasionally, send out coupon codes to our newsletter subscribers as a thank you for being an awesome SquidLetter devotee! You can sign up on our Facebook page or at our website at EmpireSquid.com

And we join in on some of the major Etsy sales with a few items at times.

But in general, we do our best to keep our everyday prices as low as we can, while still paying the bills (ingredients, fees, packaging, Etsy advertising, and such) and paying ourselves a reasonably fair amount for the time we put into our shop. We prefer to avoid typical sales gimmicks.
We stand by our products and want you to be happy with your experience with our shop.

If you are not happy with any of our handmade skincare products for any reason, simply contact us to arrange an exchange or return for the full price of the product, shipping excluded.

For opened, mostly unused bottles of essential oils or carrier oils, we can offer a 50% refund.

Any mistakes made on our end will be completely refunded or exchanged, shipping included.

For any issues, please contact us within 14 days and ship items back within 30 days of delivery.

Please see below for cancellation requests beyond the 2 hour window.
We make everything in our shop to order just for you once you've made your purchase. And we typically do this soon after your order is made so we can ship your goodies quickly.

For cancellation requests made more than 2 hours after purchase, a 35% fee will be assessed since we can not simply restock the handmade order we created for you.

If we haven't made your order yet, we're happy to refund the complete purchase price with no fee.
No. As we make everything to order and don't mark our prices up enough to offer true (~50% off) wholesale pricing. We can, and do, offer limited discounts to larger orders for resale purposes - typically for small boutique and artisan shoppes.
We will fully cover the cost of reshipment of any shipping mistake made on our end and will do everything we can to make sure you get your goodies in a timely manner.

However, if we are given an incorrect address or the delivery is not received correctly and is sent back to us, the return shipping cost, which may be higher than the original shipping charge, will be the customer's responsibility.

We do not accept returns for incorrect shipping addresses or returned packages due to shipping issues and/or front desk problems.
