Serves: 1 c sunscreen
  • ¼ c beeswax
  • ¼ c raw shea butter
  • ¼ c unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 tb cold pressed red raspberry or carrot seed oil
  • 2-3 tb non nano zinc oxide
  • Optional: 1 vitamin e capsule
  1. Melt the beeswax either in a double boiler or heat safe glass in the microwave. Go low and slow and allow the residual heat to melt the remainder of the wax when it's ¾ of the way melted.
  2. Stir in the shea butter, coconut oil, red raspberry seed/carrot seed oil, and vitamin e {if using} until when incorporated. It should begin to thicken.
  3. Vigorously stir in the zinc oxide, taking care not to breathe it in. You can use a mask and work next to an open window.
  4. Whisk until the mixture cools down and gets thick and creamy.
