A gentle blend of natural moisturizing ingredients and mineral sunscreens, with the added benefit of insect repelling essential oils.
- Broad spectrum protection from UVA & UVB rays using the safe mineral Zinc Oxide (non-nano)
- Easily applied, easily absorbed, non-whitening, non-sticky formula (YEAH!)
- Nourishing, soothing base made with certified organic, unrefined plant oils, butters and waxes
- Lemongrass and lavender essential oils to help repel biting bugs and is safe for everyone over the age of 18 months
- 81% certified organic ingredients, 19% zinc oxide
Please note that this products have not been evaluated by Health Canada and therefore cannot be assigned an SPF rating. The percentage of zinc oxide combined with the natural UV filters of the base ingredients can give protection comparable to SPF 30. However all skin is different and can tolerate different amounts of sun. When using my sun cream please be vigilant in reapplying regularly, especially after being in the water or sweating.
The best protection from the sun is wearing long sleeves, a hat and sitting in the shade.
These formulations have been tested on adult and child volunteers for a few summers with great success, I’m confident you will love them too.

I absolutely love this product!. It smells so good and it absorbs into the skin leaving your face soft. There is no white residue like most zinc products. It is also suitable for sensitive skin as most sunscreens give me a rash. I highly recommend!

I love this product. It lasts a long time and is very skin loving. SMELLS DIVINE. Sometimes I open up the tin to just smell it haha. I use this on my face (along with a hat) as I can suffer from hyper-pigmentation and this really protects my skin. I have yet to get a burn while using it, but I am careful to reapply as suggested.

I’ve been looking for a sunscreen/bug repellent “natural” product for a long time. I’m an avid hiker and the sun, along with biting flies and mosquitos, can be relentless. I’ve had the opportunity to review this product in the backcountry a few times already this year and am very pleased. It goes on similar to the moisturizers, so unlike traditional sunscreens, it doesn’t have to be slathered on – a little goes a long way! Just make sure to reapply when you get to top of the world or the end of the road….happy trails and thank you Helena!!

Most amazing product I have ever used.

Love this product, I must say I prefer the lavender and chamomile sent more, but these products are the best! Goes on so smooth and the protection that it provides is awesome, also it works as a moisturizer. Keep up the great work Helena Lane.
Jaclyn – :
Not only does this sunscreen work, a little goes a long way and it smells amazing! It’s on the greasy side, but my skin is dry so I don’t mind one bit!
Nicole Crichton – :
Finally a sunscreen my husband will wear! He’s always complained they drip into his eyes and burn, but he loves this one and has been wearing it every day. It rubs beautifully with no white residue, is soothing and very moisturizing. My little one has eczema and most sunscreens cause her to break her out in a rash, but not this one. Stock up!

This is the most effective sunscreen I have used. It soothes and moisturizes my skin. I use it on my face and body – a little goes a long way. Finally, I have found my sunscreen
Roxanne (verified owner) – :
I’ve never been a regular sunscreen user, I had protection in my mineral foundation but that’s it. I have oily/combination skin and this didn’t make my face greasy or break out. A little goes a long way and I can apply my foundation after without issues. The texture is light (like a green mousse) and it smells so good my boyfriend thought I came out of a shower. I’m really impressed!
Stephanie Wilson – :
I love Helena Lane products in general due to my sensitive skin. This sunscreen works so well, I can garden for hours and my skin doesn’t feel dry or reactive. Thank you!!!
Marilyn (verified owner) – :
I’m loving the sun cream – easy to apply, not sticky after it’s applied and no sunburn yet and I burn very easily. Its a five star!!
Leah (verified owner) – :
One of my favourite sun creams for any season! It is on the thicker side compared to a chemical sun lotion but the texture is light and smooth. For easier application, I run my hands under warm water first and let it melt/soften between fingers and then apply – it absorbs into the skin so easily. The scent is very spa like, there’s no white residue, and it works great under foundation/BB cream!

This is seriously the best sun screen. Idk how Helena does it, but she’s created a sun cream that absorbs so easily, is not white at all, smells amazing and honestly doesn’t even feel like sun screen when you apply it. It feels like I’m applying moisturizer and you don’t smell like “sunscreen” all day. It also protected me from burns way more than any othe product I’ve used. Thank you Helena!!! You’re a genius
