  • Description

    Bask in the beauty of our pure, ocean-friendly sunscreen formula providing broad spectrum SPF50 UVA/UVB protection with zinc oxide. This moisturising, age-defying sunscreen effortlessly glides onto the skin easily and is enriched with Vitamin E and Rosehip Oil to nourish the skin and provide a hydration boost. Basking Beauty is the ultimate plant-based, botanical and luxurious sunscreen.

    Key Actives

    Zinc Oxide: provides physical broad spectrum sun protection without the skin irritation or hormone disruption found in chemical sunscreens. Camellia Seed Oil: a light-weight phyto active oil abundant in fatty acids to calm and hydrate skin.
    Vitamin E: potent antioxidant, assisting with the reduction of redness and oxidative stress within the skin.

    This product is packaged in recyclable “bioplastic” tubes made from sugar cane resin.

    If you are used to using conventional chemical formulas, you may notice this natural sunscreen differs as it does rely on creating a physical barrier on top of the skin to protect you from UV rays. As a result it takes a little more time to massage into the skin, however, we believe doing this is well worth the benefits of non-toxic sun protection.

  • Botanical Actives

    Zinc Oxide is a natural, physical sunscreen which creates a layer on top of skin that blocks ultraviolet rays like UVA1, UVA2 and UVB. It is stable in chlorine and will not degrade to cause harmful free radicals, skin irritation or hormone disruption. This is as opposed to chemical SPFs which absorb them before they can cause any harm. Zinc Oxide helps to keep moisture locked into the skin.

    Camellia Seed Oil provides exceptional hydration and absorption without greasiness. It is abundant in vitamins C, D, and E along with Omega 6 and 9 and anti-ageing polyphenols, which provide deep nourishment to your skin, youth-preserving actions and a velvety smooth finish.

    Vitamin E One of the key antioxidants when it comes to sun protection, Vitamin E works to neutralise free radicals caused by exposure to UV light and other collagen-damaging molecules. It also assists in absorbing UVB light, the spectrum of sunlight that’s responsible for burning and ageing skin.

    Kakadu Plum Extract Kakadu Plum is native to Australia and known for being the highest plant-based source of Vitamin C. This makes this wild-harvested botanical exceptional for boosting collagen production, combating free radical damage and providing photoprotection from UV A and B damaging light.

    Rosehip Seed Oil Rosehip Seed Oil is one of the richest plant-based sources of beta-carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A and our skin’s natural battalion when it comes to fighting the signs of ageing. Considered a cellular regenerative oil, Rosehip is known for its ability to enhance skin repair and reduce inflammation.

Not too greasy and minimal white cast

I have been searching for a sunscreen suitable for pregnancy for a long time. I tried Japanese ones but they gave me a geisha-like white cast which made me very self-conscious when people look at me. I came across this beautiful website "Edible Beautify" and saw so many good reviews on their suncreen hence want to give it a try. I was expecting greasiness and white cast thinking they are the common shortfalls of all physical sunscreens, but this one surprised me, it is very easy to put on your face and leaves a natural "slight" white glow and I used it on a very hot day 37 degrees, it didn't give me any "milky" sweat on my face which I was also dreading from past experiences with physical sunscreens. I will now permanently switch to this little beauty even after the baby is born. Thanks for the beautiful product!!!

Hi Ling! We're overjoyed to hear about your positive experience with our Basking Beauty Natural Sunscreen SPF50. We understand the struggle of finding a suitable sunscreen during pregnancy, and we're thrilled we could meet your expectations. It's wonderful that you find it not too greasy and appreciate the minimal white cast, especially on a hot day. We're honored to be part of your skincare routine, and congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your baby! Thank you for choosing us!

Sunscreen hunt is over

I have fair skin that burns quickly! Sunscreen is a must have for me! My health is a top priority so there is no way I am going to put toxic sunscreen on my skin! I have tried many non toxic sunscreens! some my sensitive skin has reacted too, some left my skin dry with zinc caked on my skin, some left me and my clothes feeling greasy!

This sunscreen is definitely a bit more oily than a toxic sunscreen but it still absorbs into the skin quickly, smells great, has a high SPF, is water proof and leaves my skin feeling healthy and radiant!

Hi Miriana! We're thrilled to hear that your sunscreen hunt is over with our Basking Beauty Natural Sunscreen SPF50! Your health is indeed a top priority, and we're honored to be your choice for non-toxic sun protection. It's fantastic that our sunscreen absorbs quickly, smells great, and leaves your skin feeling healthy and radiant. Thanks for trusting us to keep your skin safe and happy under the sun! ☀️

Questions & answers

Ask a question
  • Is this to be used in conjunction with moisturizer or in place of? Asking for my oily skin folks...

    We recommend that you continue to use a moisturiser prior to your sunscreen application. This gives your skin the optimal nourishment, hydration and antioxidant boost required on a daily basis. For oily skin, the Soothing Nectar - Hydrating Gel is the perfect choice as it contains oil balancing botanicals. Wait for a minute for this to dry before applying the Basking Beauty Sunscreen.

  • Do you use nano-particles in your sunscreen?


    We have chosen the highest quality zinc oxide that we have been able to source for our sunscreen. We use microfine or micronised particles in our sunscreen. Microfine particles are smaller than those used in conventional white zinc sunscreens, however are larger than nano-particles- usually in the range of 100 to 2500 nanometres. Note that nano particles are smaller than 100 nanometres. We do not use nano particles in the sunscreen.

  • What percentage of zinc oxide does this have?

    The percentage of the zinc is 22.7%.

  • Can you use the basking beauty sunscreen under makeup? Thank you.

    Yes definitely! Mineral makeup used over the sunscreen is fantastic for creating a matt finish.

    It will not impact the performance of the sunscreen.
