Organic Sunscreen Stick:
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Benefits of Sunshine and Vitamin D

Vitamin D is produced by the body when the skin comes into contact with UVB rays from the sun. Vitamin D is essential for teeth and bone health because it allows calcium to be absorbed by the body. It also supports immune health, brain and nervous system function, lung function, cardiovascular health, and regulating insulin levels. According to most experts, it is recommended to get about 10-15 minutes of direct sun exposure per day.

Despite the numerous health benefits of sunshine and Vitamin D, it is still important to take precautions against the strong UVB rays that can be harmful to the skin and result in other health issues. Using an effective organic sunscreen for protection is key, and it is also recommended to avoid peak hours of sunlight, from 10 am to 2 pm. If it is not possible to avoid the sun altogether during this time, it is advisable to wear sun protection and stay under the cover of shade to avoid getting a burn.

Q: What’s Wrong with Other Sunscreens?

The hazardous chemicals found in many sunscreen products, including other “natural” skincare product lines, are known to cause allergies, tissue damage, asthma, and may even cause cancer. This defeats the purpose of sunscreen, which is intended to offer protection from melanoma, skin cancer that is caused by the sun. Our nutrient-packed organic sunscreen is not only the best natural organic sunscreen for your body, the ingredients are clean and safe for even the most sensitive skin on your face.

This dedication to using only natural ingredients for skin protection from the sun is what makes Butterbean Organics the best organic sunscreen on the market. Apply to your entire body, from head to toe, to avoid sunburn. Rest easy in the fact that your skin is safe from chemicals, and as an added bonus, know that your choice is also making a difference for the planet! What is good for your body or your baby’s body is good for the environment, and sunscreen is no different.

Q: How to Get the Most Out of Your Sunscreen

All too often a fun-filled day at the beach or at the local swimming pool turns sour after you get home and discover areas of red and painful burnt skin where you forgot to put on sunscreen or it didn’t get fully absorbed into your skin. Here we explore some helpful tips for getting the most out of your sunscreen and what you can do to avoid the painful effects of extensive sun exposure.

  1. At a minimum, apply sunscreen 15 minutes before exposing yourself to the sun. This gives the sunscreen lotion time to absorb into your skin and creates an effective barrier against the strong ultraviolet rays. Giving your body plenty of time to properly absorb the sunscreen lotion also helps it stay on when you go into the water, instead of washing off completely because it has successfully permeated through the top layer of your skin.
  2. Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or less. Most sunscreen lotions, regardless of the SPF, are most effective within this time frame. If you wait any longer, especially when there is water involved, you run the risk of getting a burn.
  3. If you are swimming or around water, make sure your skin is completely dry before you reapply sunscreen lotion. The presence of water on the surface of the skin will limit the amount of sunscreen lotion that is able to permeate your skin and get fully absorbed.
Q: How Can Using Butterbean Organic Sunscreen Help the Planet?

Environmental considerations are a commonly overlooked factor when it comes to choosing the best natural sunscreen for you and your family. At Butterbean Organics Skincare, we are dedicated to providing chemical-free and effective products in a way that provides benefit to the babies, children, and adults that use them, and the environment that they are used in. Inevitably, some sunscreen washes off of your skin when you go in the water. These hazardous chemicals in the sunscreen lotion pollute the ocean and negatively impact the environment of ocean life. It is estimated that approximately 14,000 tons of sunscreen infiltrates the ocean each year. An astounding number when you consider this is annual!

By choosing natural organic sunscreen products that are healthy for your skin and for the planet, you can make a difference to protect coral reefs from climate change. The minerals and botanical ingredients found in our products are of the highest quality. We take skincare beyond the product, reconnecting customers with nature through Organic ingredients that can not be replicated in a lab. This is what makes us the best organic sunscreen available. What are you waiting for? The proof is in the products!

Q: Are Butterbean products good for sensitive skin?
Butterbean Organics strives to make products that are safe for every customer. By packing our products with nutrients and antioxidants instead of harsh chemicals, we are able to provide customers with clean, skin-nourishing items that are perfect for anyone. The natural and botanical ingredients that make up our product line, including our sunscreen stick, provide a pleasant, uplifting smell that any person would prefer over supermarket products.
Q: Is Butterbean sunscreen waterproof?
No sunscreen is 100% waterproof. Water-resistant means that the sunscreen retains its original SPF after 40 minutes in warm moving water; very water-resistant means after 80 minutes. Laboratory testing has provided the data that all of our sunscreens are very water-resistant for 80 minutes! Please remember to reapply the sunscreen stick after swimming.
Q: Are Butterbean Sunscreens tested for SPF, water-resistant, and Broad Spectrum claims?
Yes! Our organic skincare products are FDA compliant and have been tested on human subjects with FDA-approved laboratory procedures, which includes our sunscreen stick. Our product claims are SPF30, 80-minutes of water resistance, and UVA/UVB.
Q: How do I apply Butterbean Sunscreens?
Butterbean organic sunscreens are third-party tested to ensure an SPF of 30. SPF is dependent on the proper application of the sunscreen. In the FDA SPF test, approximately a full ounce of sunscreen is used to cover an adult body. It is important when using mineral sunscreens that you apply enough sunscreen to cover the skin well. Applying half the amount of sunscreen can leave you with a significantly lower SPF. Remember, mineral sunscreen sits on the surface of the skin. If the sunscreen is rubbed off by towel drying, sand, surf, sweat, or other, protection will be decreased. Using the sunscreen stick, apply a thick layer and rub in. Reapply at least every 2 hours.
Q: Is Butterbean organic sunscreen greasy?
Butterbean rubs in smoothly and is easily absorbed. Coconut, Olive, and Jojoba oils are known for the ability to penetrate the skin without leaving an oily feel. Butterbean makes an excellent non-greasy moisturizer.
Q: How long will your organic sunscreen stay fresh?
Chemical Preservatives are not used in Butterbean sunscreen. Butterbean is anhydrous meaning no water is contained in the product, and the oils we use are stable. An expiration date will be stamped on your container. Our products are good for 2 years from the date of manufacture. Also, keep in mind that water, dirt, etc., in the container will introduce bacteria and could affect the shelf life.
Q: What are the benefits of using sunscreen?
Sunscreen helps reduce your chances of skin cancer and early skin-aging. Plus, Butterbean sunscreen is chemical-free and non-toxic.

Q: Is it good to use sunscreen every day?
A healthy lotion sunscreen or sunscreen cream should be applied anytime you are outside in order to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

Q: How much sunscreen to use on face?
