Everyday Lotion EnviroProtection
The new smoother, silkier, more luxe version of the popular Everyday SolarBalm from MEM. Suitable for sensitive skin and babies. 100% natural, vegan, and now with 100%+ Certified Organic Ingredients.
A hydrating formulation provides a light covering with an approximate UV protection of 15+. The luxurious silky matte cream is enriched with Shea Butter, Coconut, Macadamia, Camellia Seed, Pomegranate Seed Oil (Virgin, Cold Pressed), Tamanu (green gold, regenerative oil), Frankincense and Lavender, which help to nourish, protect and repair.
Formulated as a cold-process emulsion to maintain the nutrient load of the botanic-organic ingredients.
This totally natural suncare/sunprotection lotion is developed using pure grade non-nano Zinc Powder that reflects UVA and UVB rays, at approximately 20% formulation to assist in preventing sunburn, nourishing and protecting the skin when outdoors in direct sunlight and exposed to the elements. Wearing an everyday sun protection lotion helps to reduce skin damage and premature aging caused by over exposure to the sun's rays.
It's safe for bubs, kids, adults, everyone. (NB: make sure babies or pets can't lick or suck or any part of their body where the Solar Lotion has been applied. Please read the 'Caution' section for more information).
100% Botanic and Organic. Vegan. Naturally Cruelty-free.
Skin nourishing ingredients. Synthetic-free!
The ocean-friendly formula is biodegradable. (ie: it won't harm the fishies in the sea, rivers, dams or creeks). It's botanical wax component means it is a vegan, naturally cruelty-free, and waterproof, however, re-apply if you've wiped your face with a towel after swimming. Use on the face, neck, decoletage, forearms and the back of the hands when driving.
Please note that MEM's EVERYDAY Lotion is not SPF rated. I trial my products on willing humans with the outcome of a 15mins+ no-burn time. However, the BEST sun protection is thick-weave clothing and a hat. Never rely upon any day lotion or cream to protect you for more than 15mins in direct sunlight.
As this has a subtle tint to take the white cast off the product, I suggest ordering a sample and seeing how it contrasts or blends with your complexion. You can adjust this using a mineral foundation powder to match your skin tone.
Watch the short video to see how the product virtually disappears on application.
Store in a cool place away from direct heat and light.
How to use:
Apply an even covering of lotion to cleansed and moisturised skin.
Wipe over face avoiding eyes and lips, ears, neck (front and back), chest, arms...anywhere that you haven't covered with clothing.
If using as a daycream, allow the lotion to set for a few minutes, then apply a mineral powder to suit your complexion.
Reapply after towelling down from swimming or sweating.
To remove use an oil cleanser and a soft cloth with warm water, or a Powdered Facial Cleanser and rinse well with just warm water.
In cold climates/weather, it is suggested that you gently warm your bottle before use. You can do this simply by placing it in a cup of warm, not hot, water, for a few minutes while you cleanse and moisturise.
CAUTION: This product contains Zinc powder and should not be ingested or get into your eyes. (therefore, keep it out of the reach of children and infants and pets) If you find that it causes any discomfort or irritation, discontinue use and wash the area with cool water. Remove any residue with a botanical oil (like Coconut Oil) and wipe away with a soft cloth.

Pomegranate is used for its powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, regenerative and anti-microbial qualities. It's rejuvenating actions include the ability to help heal and repair skin and strengthen new skin growth. This enables it to prevent and repair sun damage, including premature aging, wrinkles and creases.
Shea Butter has known benefits for skin nourishment helping again with regeneration and protection from the sun and environmental stressors.
Lavender helps to relax the skin and provide a calming scent.
Camellia, Coconut and Macadamia Oils are packed full of nourishment without being heavy or clogging. This formulation will help to heal skin not suffocate it.
Zinc, while we know it is good for broad spectrum sun protection, is also a marvelous addition for sensitive skin instead of chemical sunscreens that often irritate. Zinc helps the skin to heal and reduces inflammation...that's why you find it in so many nappy-rash balms!
