    Wow, I guess I never really thought about all of the chemicals in sunscreen, After I read this I went and read a couple of the articles that it linked to and just WOW.

    Do your kids like this one? Will they wear it? Have you experienced any downsides to making your own?

    I finally got the ingredients for this this past monday and made it. I didn't have the cute containers so I just poured it into a jelly jar. This stuff works WONDERFULLY! It's smooth, smells very faintly and I spent the entire day in the sun yesterday weeding my garden and completely forgot to reapply and still NO burn.

    Thank you very much lady for all that you do!

    You could use grapeseed oil (natural SPF 4)

    In regards to the Titanium Dioxide, the picture of all the ingredients shows a bag of Zinc Oxide. Also, when you click on the Titanium Dioxide link above in the ingredients list, it takes you to Amazon to a page selling Zinc Oxide, and the bag is the same as the one in the picture on this page. Please clarify which should be included in this recipe.
    Thanks!!

    This sounds wonderful, but what do you do when you medically need to have a higher spf?

    Will this melt in hot temps at the pool? Can see this being a mess if you put in the deoderant container rather than a jar.

    I would suggest using one of the other oils with a higher SPF rating in an earlier post on this thread. It looks like you can increase the rating. Good luck.

    I made this today. First, the smell is delightful with the almond oil and beeswax. Second, it feels incredible on my skin, nourishing. Making it was a little nerve racking with the zinc powder but it went well. It was a little grainy on the bottom though, not sure what that was about but it set up fine when it cooled. I put some in deodorant containers and some in jars. It's soft enough where you can spoon out what you need with your fingers. In hot temperatures, yes, this will melt so using jars is a good idea for that.
