We love the Sun. It's amazing. We believe limited, smart exposure is actually pretty o.k. for the skin. But for those long exposure times, Hurraw! SPF 15 Sun Balm will give your lips the extra protection they need. It glides on silky smooth *(and virtually clear) like Hurraw! regular balms but it has been formulated to be extra thick and creamy for longer staying power while out in those shining rays! Juicy tangerine with hints of vanilla...the unique scent of roman chamomile lends a calming note. Here's the deal with zinc oxide. Hurraw! use non nano zinc oxide in their sun balm. Zinc oxide is the only all natural, broad spectrum (blocks both UVA and UVB) sun screen available today. Zinc oxide is a mineral. It protects your lips by sitting on top of them and thus, provides a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. It actually deflects the rays away from the skin to prevent any harm. For adequate protection it must be applied often. As an interesting side note, to get our SPF 15 factor verified, Hurraw! balm was laboratory tested on... (wait for it...) humans! SPF 15 only means that your skin is protected 15x's "longer" than without the SPF 15 product. If you have very fair skin, perhaps the sun makes you "pink" in just 3 minutes. Therefore, an SPF 15 product would grant you 45 minutes in the sun...but there are many limiting factors: Time of day? Cloud cover? Eclipse? Are you on the water (or snow) where sun rays are more concentrated? At a high altitude where you are literally closer to the sun? Although Hurraw! sun balm contains 76.6% organic ingredients, anything that has the Zinc Oxide in it can not be 'certified' as made with organic ingredients under the NOP agricultural organic guidelines.
