SHIELD - Protective Cream | Masque
SHIELD is a gentle, all botanical protection cream made with Tamanu Oil, Shea Butter and a powerhouse of UV protective ingredients.Designed as an 'Everyday' product with skin-restorative and skin-protective botanicals (without Zinc or tint that's in 'Everyday EnviroProtection Lotion' or 'Everyday SolarBalm'), so you can enjoy short amounts of time in the sun absorbing the natural wellness and vital, catalystic benefits that it imparts, without the unhelpful burn or damage.
It's also an everyday defense against indoor UV light emissions from digital devices, outdoor UV rays and general pollutants.
But, it's not just for daytime use, this rich cream is perfect for cooling skin that's been outside or in front of screens all day long. Thanks to ingredients like Tamanu Oil, Carrot Seed, Raspberry Seed and Peppermint, this cream creates a protective shield as well as a restorative, leave-on masque for damaged skin.
Always apply to clean, damp skin for best results.
Suitable for all ages.
How to use:
Apply a light swipe of lotion to the face (ears too), neck (front and back), chest, arms, and anywhere that you haven't covered with clothing.
TIP: to cleanse the skin of oil based products use an oil based cleanser like one of the MultiPurpose Body Oils or a Cleansing Gel. Alternatively you can use one of the Powdered Facial Cleansers which combine Arrowroot Powder aerated with botanical oils. Apply to damp skin, rub in, wash off with warm water and pat dry.

If your products arrives and it has melted - do not attempt to open it. Place it in the fridge for half an hour and check to see if it has hardened. If it still seems soft, place it back in the fridge for another half an hour.
Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight. The botanical ingredienst are durable and unlikely to melt at temperatures below 30 C.
Does it have an SPF?
Yes. All of the natural botanical ingredients carry a small amount of broad spectrum sun protection factor (approximately SPF 6 to 10), however, I recommend that your suncare should include regular periods of time OUT of the sun and covered up appropriately if spending long periods of time outdoors.
Never rely on a natural or chemical sun cream to be your only sun protection. Covering with a tightweave cloth and getting into shade is your best protection from UV damage and premature aging.
Enjoy your time in the sun and be wise about sun exposure.
