Pukoa Organics Sunscreen uses 100% Organic plant-based ingredients and oils. The beeswax works as a water resistant and helps bond our sunscreen together! We are proud to state that our beeswax is all from rescue bees on the island of O’ahu. Pukoa Organics Sunscreen is suitable for any sports or water activity, and is safe for all ages.
Our main active ingredient is ZnO or Zinc Oxide which is approved by the FDA as 1 of only 17 products approved for use as sunscreen.
Zinc oxide particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, where they scatter, absorb, and reflect ultraviolet radiation, protecting your living skin below; much like a rash guard or shirt. The unique thing about Zinc as an active ingredient is that it can work as a broad spectrum sunscreen that works to reflect UV-A, UV-B, and even UV-C rays from the sun.
