Cyndi's Home Made Sunscreen
« on: December 07, 2014, 06:27:10 am »
Cyndi O'Meara has created a tinted sunscreen with cacao wafers! Here's the recipe:


6 TBS or 80gms Coconut Oil (SPF factor 4-6)

6  or  15 gms Cacao Wafers

1 TBS or 25 gms Inca Inchi Oil

4 TBS non nano particle zinc oxide (SPF factor 15)

6 drops of either lavendar or frankinsence


Warm the coconut oil and cacao wafers in a double boiler or use a Thermomix - 37C until cacao wafers are melted (about 4 minutes).Then, beat in the zinc oxide, Inca Inchi oil and drop in the essential oil.

Place in a glass jar with a lid.  In the summer, it will be a liquid and in the winter, it will go solid.  This should last up to 6 months if not kept in direct sunlight, or if kept in the fridge, it can be used for 12 months.

This sunscreen has an SPF factor of around 20.

You can also use this wonderful mixture for nappy rash as it acts as a barrier cream.

NB: most zinc oxide has nano particles. If you are looking to purchase some zinc oxide powder without nano particles, it can be purchased from New Directions.


I'm yet to make this, but will be having a go tomorrow. I have all the ingredients. :)
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

No, not yet! I was too busy making products leading up to Christmas. I will do so in January though, just to try it.
