  1. All of these recipes look great and easy to make. The only thing with them is that they all use zinc oxide. A lot of people who are allergic to sunscreen can not use the zinc oxide. I make a version of natural sunscreen for my son who is allergic to sunscreen that contains avocado oil, sesame oil, and black tea. It has a lower spf with out the zinc oxide but it still works well if you reapply every hour or so.

  2. This is a great idea. Thanks!
