Is Soleo Sunscreen Non Comedogenic?

Generally not, but this depends on your individual skin type. There are natural plant oils in the product but there are no petroleum based products which can often be the cause of acne, skin problems and other skin irritations.

Is Soleo Nano Free?

Soléo Organics products do not use any nano particles in its formulations.

With our state of the art zinc technology, we are able to deliver high performance zinc without any thick white coating while still avoiding the use of nano particles.

We continue to ensure that we avoid nano particles as the market leading natural and organic sunscreen.

What does SPF Mean?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF numbers are on approximate indication of how much protection from the sun the product will provide for your skin. For any exposure time an SPF30 sunscreen has approximately double the protection time of an SPF15 sunscreen. ie. For an average person (skin burns after 10 minutes in the sun):

  • SPF30 = 300 minutes before burning
  • SPF15 = 150 minutes before burning

It is Good for Sensitive Skin?

Soléo Organics was designed for sensitive skin without the use of chemical UV-absorbers, synthetic preservatives, artificial fragrances and petroleum by-products.

We always recommend, however, that allergy-prone people carry out a test patch first (as with any new products they are using).

Is it Suitable to Use on Babies?

Soléo Organics is free of all chemical UV-absorbers, synthetic preservatives, petroleum by-products, fragrances or essential oils; so is ideal for sensitive skin and has no specific restrictions on use at any age.   Of course, it is always best to keep babies out of the sun as much as possible and it is generally recommended to check with your doctor regarding any new products for babies under 6 months old.  However for times when that isn’t possible, we feel our sunscreen is suitable for your whole family.  We also just recommended for the first time you use it to try a test patch on your baby – this is good to do with any new product that you use on your baby, just to be cautious. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has ranked Soléo Organic All Natural Sunscreen as the #1 sunscreen for all ages.

What Ingredients are Used in the Sunscreen?
