The chemical compounds that are in commercial sunscreens are mostly synthetic and can have a highly toxic effect on and in the body. Recent research by the cancer foundation (USA) indicated that it was some of these commercial sunscreens that contributed to the development of cancer due to their chemical additives.

A note about packaging:
OmMade Sun Protection Lotion comes in a reusable silicone travel tube. It is flexible and screws open to allow easy cleaning. We recommend refilling it with your favourite beauty products or even foodstuffs for travel, camping, etc.
Alternatively, contact your local council to enquire about recycling options.
Please note, silicone "breathes" which does mean it is slightly porous so you may find a little condensation on the outside of your packaging. This does not affect the integrity of the contents.
