Little Urchin Natural Sunscreen is a popular Australia made, natural sunscreen choice. This fragrance free sunscreen is perfect for modern families in Australia who value quality, natural ingredients combined with effective sun protection.
Little Urchin SPF 30+ sunscreen is an effecient sun protection cream for the whole family that protects against UVA and UVB radiation. It is suitable for babies from 6 months of age, children and adults. Customers tell us that this sunscreen is not as oily as some other natural sunscreen alternatives and is fantastic for sensitive skin types including those with eczema or psoriasis.
We absolutely love that Little Urchin is a more reef safe sunscreen option, although there is no such definitive test for this, Zinc Oxide as the key ingredient of the sunscreen has been shown in studies not to cause harm to coral, whereas ingredients commonly found in traditional sunscreens such as oxybenzone, butylparaben and octinoxate are definitely harmful and have been shown to cause rapid death of coral within a short time of exposure. This sunscreen is not tested on animals.
We recommend mixing or kneading the sunscreen tube before opening and applying the sunscreen. Little Urchin sunscreen is water resistant for 3 hours however we recommend reapplication after 2 hours.
