Nanotechnology makes us nervous, mineral sunscreens clog our pores, conventional sun screens are a toxic cocktail.  Not wanting to block essential Vitamin D synthesis while out in the sun, we developed a plant based oil to offer protection from the sun's rays.  We think the best protection from the sun is clothing and hats, but sometimes you need a little more.  This can be used all over the body. We have tested this on our own children and ourselves for years and years with great success.  Reapply after swimming and physical exertion.  For after sun protection and relief from over-exposure, use a few drops of this golden oil to soothe painful skin, to restore moisture balance, and to help prevent peeling.  We do not recommend that you use an oil-based product of any kind for severe sunburn.  Aloe Vera gel or juice would be a great choice in this case.  

This serum is concentrated — a drop or two for the face will do, or dilute in your own carrier oil.  

CONTAINS: wildcrafted cottonwood bud (Populus trichocarpa) infused in organic extra virgin olive oil (Olea europaea), organic CO2 extracted sea buckthorn seed oil (Hippophae rhamnoides), organic avocado oil (Persea americana), wildcrafted St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) oil infused in organic extra virgin olive oil (Olea europaea), red raspberry seed oil, (Rubus idaeus), non-GMO vitamin E (Tocopherol), and essential oils of lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) & myrrh (Commiphora myrrha). For external use only. 

Our seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) seed oil is CO2 extracted from the seeds within the bright orange berries of this hardy plant native to Russia and China. For at least 12 centuries sea buckthorn fruit and seed oil have been used as a remedy for sun damaged skin, extremely dry skin and even cell regeneration from radiation burns such as those victims exposed to radiation at Chernobyl.  Sea buckthorn seed oil also has the ability to absorb ultra violet rays offering natural sun protection and is high in beta carotene, vitamin C & E, B vitamins and essential fatty acids. 
Red raspberry seed oil (Rubus idaeus), is known for its exceptionally high content of tocopherols (vitamin E), vitamin A and fatty acids. It is also known to offer broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
Cottonwood Bud oil, also known as Balm of Gilead, is made from harvesting the immature tips of the cottonwood branches that blow down in the late winter/early spring. The amber colored resin has an incredibly appealing fragrance that people respond to with great nostalgia. It is an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and offers sun protection as well as after-sun healing properties. 

St. John’s Wort Oil is a ruby-red oil derived from a tiny yellow flower found growing in disturbed areas like roadsides and clear cuts. Named for St. John’s Day, which is near summer solstice, this plant has an affinity with the sun. The oil infusion topically is high in tannins and offers both its protection and healing properties from the golden orb in the sky.
