“When we use sunscreen, the Wotnot natural is our go-to for our whole family. I’m so grateful that we have products like this available to us so that we can make better choices for our family and reduce the chemical load on our bodies, big and small. I like that it has a thicker consistency, that it’s long-lasting and effective.- Tanla”
” I have found the wotnot sunscreen to be very moisturising, while gentle on my boys sensitive skin. You can tell it’s packed with oils to keep the skin supple and soft. And the main reason I changed was that it’s chemical free. There is a huge difference in his skin since using it. My hubby and I have even started using it now. – Adele”

What does SPF mean?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF numbers are an approximate indication of how much protection from the sun a product will provide for your skin. Everyone’s skin is different and each person’s skin can be exposed to the sun for different lengths of time before burning. Sunscreen extends the time before burning by a multiple of the SPF. Eg if you have fair skin and would normally burn in 5 minutes without any sun protection then an SPF 30 will give you 30 x 5 (150 min) minutes protection. The issue is that all sunscreens will rub off over time with normal activity and perspiration and so in some cases the higher SPF can give a false sense of security.
The most important thing to remember is that no sunscreen provides total protection and will rub off over time, that’s why it is always important to reapply regularly and cover up using appropriate clothing and eye wear especially during the hottest part of the day. Stay out of midday sun and reapply sunscreen regularly.
How to use?
It is important to apply your sunscreen 20-30 minutes before going out in the sun. This allows the sunscreen to reach each layer of the skin and provides maximum protection. Sunscreen should be applied evenly and liberally to ensure all exposed areas are protected.
It is also important to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours or after towelling dry or excessive sweating. This will not prolong the amount of time you can stay in the sun but will ensure the effectiveness of your sunscreen for the remaining time that your sunscreen provides protection.
