    So great that you included a sunscreen recipe in your post.  I’ve heard of the value of zinc oxide, of course, as it has been an ingredient in the product I used on my babies for diaper rash. I am also pleased that you mention that all the ingredients are available on Amazon.  As we have only one poor excuse for a store in my little wilderness community, I know I would not find the needed ingredients there.  What would we do without Amazon shopping?  In my part of the world, it is very helpful.

    We have a lady here in my community who makes goat’s milk soap.  I plan to turn her on to your website, as she will find it interesting to read about soap-making from your perspective.  

    Thanks for your helpful information.

      Hi Fran, I hear you I also live in a very small community and use Amazon a lot.  I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly my orders arrive and right to the front door!  Thanks for sharing my site.

    Hai Tes,

    I was looking for a natural sunscreen and I found your DIY article. Thank you for a very clear & concise explaination. I have heard about DIY sunscreens before but never had the courage to try them. But something about “Zinc oxide” just scares me. I want to give your recipe a try. I have read that the best kind of sunscreens has non-nano Zinc oxide in them. I don’t know if that’s something that’s available. Any suggestions?

      Hi Mithra, a non-nano zinc Oxide is great for sunscreen.  It’s the same Zinc Oxide used in Diaper Rash Creams and Calamine lotion.  If you don’t want to use Zinc Oxide you can always make an oil  sunscreen rather than a cream.  To do this just mix some of the best oils.

    It is always great if one can make their own natural sunscreen.  And this post is very useful in that respect.  It provides all the ingredients required, where to get them and the step-by-step directions. 

    We were intrigued knowing that oils like red raspberry blocks UVB rays but do not do well in protecting against UVA.  In this case, what would be the best UVA protectant that needs to be added?  Wouldn’t that diminish the natural essence of the DIY product?

      Red Raspberry does have some UVA protection, but a sunscreen using zinc oxide would increase the UVA protection for sure.  I find the recipe I have provided to be a really good sunscreen it has ingredients that have both UVA and UVB protection.

    I learned a lot reading this article, that I have never thought about before. We need to really know what is being put on our bodies, the harsh chemicals we use and don’t realize. Thank you for your wonderful site and sharing how to make natural soaps and all. I would love to book mark your site.

    Blessings

      Thanks Renea, I’m glad you are finding the site useful.  We really do need to check the ingredients of our skin creams etc. as our skin is the largest body organ.
