  1. This is the “best”. Haven’t bought suncream in years since making this. So easy to make, and transports and stores well . Kids are happy to wear it when required as it doesn’t sting or “smell weird” ?

  2. Hey there
    I am just wondering what the shelf life of this product is and whether a preservative should be used to pro long shelf life of it not something you think you’ll use quickly x

  3. Hi, I’m a bee keeper and have loads of spare wax, also spend all our free time at the beach. I’m wanting to make bronze zinc cream for your nose and lips etc.
    is this the method you would use or is there another for a thick Bronze zinc cream?? Thanks

    • How awesome that you have an endless supply of beautiful beeswax! I would use this recipe but increase the beeswax by at least 10-15g to make a firmer cream. You could add cocoa/cacao powder to tint it. Good luck x

    • I have used Aborvitae in the past, and I know others use carrot seed oil. Unless you do a great deal of research on essential oils and sun exposure, it’s best to leave them out.
