Sun Lotion SPF 15 with Natural Tan Accelerator - £21.00 for 200ml / £13.50 for 100ml
Key ingredients: Aloe Vera, Edelweiss, Green Tea & Avocado
Enjoy sun-soaked days in the knowledge your skin is protected with Green People’s Sun Lotion SPF 15. Created with a new improved formulation combining UV filters, antioxidants and natural tan accelerator, this lotion contains 87% certified organic agricultural ingredients and has been approved by the Vegetarian Society. Ideal as an everyday SPF, it’s blended with Inositol, a naturally occurring nutrient derived from the fruit of the Carob tree. Not to be confused with fake tan, this naturally derived ingredient stimulates the formulation of melanin, resulting in a faster and deeper developing tan. The non-pore-clogging, water-repellent, moisture retaining formulation is ideal for those prone to eczema and psoriasis.

The Green Energy Natural Sunscreen Compound
