Natural SPFThere are plenty of recipes to make your own sunscreen. A quick Google search can help, but usually you take about 1/2c almond or olive oil, 1/4c coconut oil, 1/4c beeswax for thickening and 2Tbs Zinc oxide (use a Non-Nano Powder specifically for skin formulations.) Add a few tsp of your favorite oil below, and voila!

1. Carrot Seed Oil: SPF 38-40
2. Raspberry Seed Oil: SPF 28-50
3. Wheatgerm Oil: SPF 20
4. Avocado Oil: SPF 4-15
5. Coconut Oil: SPF 2-8
6. Olive Oil: SPF 2-8
7. Macadamia Nut Oil: SPF 6
8. Almond Oil: SPF 5
9. Shea Butter: SPF 3-6
10. Jojoba Oil: SPF 4

Zinc oxide is anywhere from 2-20, depending on how much used.
