Shake. Spray. Rub.

So simple to use. Most sunscreens feel sticky and makes my skin feel dirty. Not Butterbean! My skin is soft and no white residue. It's fairtrade and organic, so doing the right thing!

Great Mineral Sunscreen!

Light weighted, easy to absorb sunscreen, with strong protection, I've been used it for one year.

Best natural sunscreen on the market

A couple years ago I bought every natural sunscreen on the market, including this one. I compared each one. (What can I say I'm a scientist). All natural zinc oxide based sunscreens give some whiteness to the skin, but I discovered that this one gives me the least whiteness as it goes on more smoothly and evenly. The others like badger for example, etc are more of a paste, whereas this one glides on by comparison. My friends and I went to the beach last year and they tried them all and they liked this one the best as well. I haven't got burned while using it either. I also like that it is in a metal container which is recyclable, whereas the others are in plastic tubes, which of course have plasticizers in them which might leach into the product and therefore your skin as well. Overall, after careful consideration of the options out there, this is my new go-to for the summer.

Very nice and easy to spread!

I like this sunscreen! It is a lotion and goes on very easy! I wish there were more in the bottle! I will buy more! I’ve tried many zinc oxide sunscreens and this is the best!

Butterbean is the BETTERbean.

Love our Butterbean sunscreen. Our whole family uses it. Glad we found a nontoxic sunscreen that is earth friendly.

Butterbean Organics Sunscreen Lotion:
Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do I need to shake Simple sunscreen?
Our organic sunscreen is a natural product and some separation can occur between the zinc oxide and the oils. Shaking before use helps to suspend the zinc in the matrix so that it will provide proper coverage to protect you from the sun's harmful rays.
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 after swimming.
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: Is it good to use sunscreen every day?
A healthy spray 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 long does sunscreen last?
Sunscreen should be reapplied every 2 hours and after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, and immediately after towel drying. For children under 6 months, ask a doctor for specific instructions.
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 provide a pleasant, uplifting smell that any person would prefer over supermarket products.
Q: What is the benefit of buying the refill bottle?
If you do not already have a butterbean spray bottle, or your bottle was damaged, these sunscreen refill bottles make the perfect replacement. By opting for the refilled style of use, you can help us cut down on the plastic used for several of the same purchases. Butterbean’s refill packs allow the customer to continuously utilize the same bottle, reducing the waste involved with buying separate products each time while providing bulk savings. Try it out and receive two extra bottles worth of sunscreen when you buy our refills.
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. 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. Apply a thick layer and rub in. Reapply at least every 2 hours.
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 production date. Also, keep in mind that water, dirt, etc., in the container will introduce bacteria and could affect the shelf life.
Q: How does sunscreen work?
Our natural sunscreen spray works by blocking and absorbing UVA and UVB rays.
Q: How much sunscreen to use on face?
It’s recommended that you apply approximately half of a teaspoon amount of sunscreen to your face.
Q: Are the sunscreen refill packs good for sensitive skin?
Every product that is sold by Butterbean is chemical-free to promote use by all. Our hand-selected ingredients are a valuable addition to the most sensitive customer’s skincare regimen.
Q: What are the benefits of using sunscreen?
Organic sunscreen lotion helps reduce your chances of skin cancer and early skin-aging. Butterbean chemical-free sunscreen lotion and non-toxic lotion sunscreen are healthier for your skin and body than other greasy sunscreens with harmful chemicals.
Q: Does sunscreen darken your skin?
No, because our sunscreen skincare products are chemical-free and natural, they do not harm your skin like other products might. Our sunscreen does what you need it to do: protect your skin from sun damage.
