FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where can I buy natural sunscreen?
Natural sunscreen is available from pharmacies and health stores, even some supermarkets. It can even be commonly bought at local markets.
You can also buy it online.
When choosing a natural sunscreen though, keep in mind that saying natural on the label does not mean it does not contain chemicals. To avoid any unwanted reactions, choose an 'All Natural' sunscreen that is chemical free. Soléo Organics is all natural and chemical free, and available in pharmacies and health stores across Australia. You can also buy it right here online.
Is your natural sunscreen suitable for babies?
Soléo Organics is free of all chemical UV-absorbers, synthetic preservatives, petroleum by-products, fragrances or essential oils. Therefore, it so is ideal for people with 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 can proudly say our sunscreen is suitable for your whole family. We also recommend 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.
Is your natural sunscreen non-comedogenic?
Yes, all of Soléo Organics sunscreens are non-comedogenic and suitable for use every day. The properties of sunscreens that make them block the pores of the skin normally come from synthetic and chemical ingredients.
Is natural sunscreen safe?
Natural sunscreen is recommended by dermatologists for people with sensitive skin,
eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and other skin conditions. This is because it's often the chemicals in sunscreen that cause burning feelings, irritation, redness and allergic reactions.
We believe in our sunscreen and our best customers are the people with more sensitive skin, babies, children and pregnant women. We stand by our sunscreen, if you don't believe us you can read our return policy.
Is Soléo all natural?
Yes, Soléo Organics sunscreens are 100% natural and organic with no chemical or synthetic additives. Even our scented sunscreens use the natural extracts from coconut to provide the fragrance.
What does natural sunscreen mean?
Natural sunscreen is a term normally used to describe physical sunscreens. Most of the
sunscreens you see in stores and online are referred to as chemical sunscreens. If a sunscreen does not specifically say it is natural, it's normally a safe bet that it is a chemically based sunscreen.
Chemical sunscreens use chemicals to convert UV radiation into another form of energy, like heat. In comparison a natural sunscreen uses very small mineral particles to reflect the UV radiation, instead of transforming it.
In Australia, sunscreens are regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, also known as the TGA. The TGA carefully regulates products referring to themselves as natural, due to all the misleading claims that have been made in
the past. Soléo Organics sunscreen uses no chemicals and is one of a few sunscreens that is allowed to refer to itself as natural.
How does natural sunscreen work?
Natural sunscreen uses mineral particles to reflect the UV rays put out by the sun. This in comparison to chemical sunscreen, which uses chemicals to transform the radiation into heat or other forms of energy.
The most common minerals used by natural sunscreens are zinc oxide and titanium oxide.
Zinc oxide is more common, but titanium oxide is by no means rare.
Does natural sunscreen expire?
Yes, natural sunscreen expires like any other sunscreen. Unfortunately, any sunscreen past it's use by date has a reduced SPF value and as time goes by, this will decrease further. The use by date on a sunscreen gives a good
indication of how long the full SPF value is guaranteed for when used properly.
It is always best to purchase new sunscreen if your sunscreen tube runs past it's use by date. But if there is no other option, it's better to have some protection than no protection.
What are natural sunscreen ingredients?
Natural sunscreens are made up of one or more active ingredients, and several inactive
The active ingredient is the ingredient that is intended to block or reflect the ultra violet radiation.
This is normally a mineral like zinc oxide or titanium oxide. These mineral particles are usually very small and are generally either micro or nano particles.
Micro particles are still very small but large enough to be non-comedogenic and not enter the blood stream. Soléo Organics uses micronized zinc.
The inactive ingredients in sunscreen are used to determine the consistency, thickness, stability and pH of the formulation itself. They also dictate it's properties like whether it's water resistant or not and any additional benefits like hydration, soothing or hypoallergenic.
Soléo Organics uses different natural oils to moisturise and provide nourishment supporting the skin in addition to protecting it.
Is natural sunscreen better?
This point can be heavily contested and the Therapeutic Goods Authority here in
Australia won't allow any regulated product to claim itself as 'better' than another. That being said, here are just some of the benefits.
All natural sunscreens don't contain the chemicals that are associated with burning on the skin, irritation, redness and dermatitis.
Natural sunscreens don't contain the chemicals that damage, harm or bleach the coral
reefs and marine life.
Only all natural sunscreens are permitted in Hawaii and Palau for exactly this reason.
Natural sunscreens use natural oils that moisturise and support the skin.
Natural sunscreens are recommended by dermatologists for babies, children and pregnant
15 Tips on Making Sunscreen Fun

What's Different About Soléo's Natural Sunscreen?
Soléo Organics has gone above and beyond to ensure all our sunscreens are natural and suitable for use every day by everyone.
Why Use a Natural Sunscreen?
Natural sunscreen is much kinder on the skin, normally not causing the skin reactions that are so common with chemical sunscreens.
A burning feeling, dermatitis, irritation, redness are all very common reactions with
chemical sunscreens. 'All natural sunscreens', not to be confused with 'natural sunscreens' can be used to avoid reactions with chemicals. It is important to
realise that there is a big difference between an 'All Natural' sunscreen in comparison to a natural sunscreen. Natural sunscreens can still contain some of these chemicals, while an all natural sunscreen does not.
Soléo Organics sunscreens do not contain any chemicals and were formulated to be used
by the most vulnerable, including babies and pregnant women.
Soléo Organics range of all natural sunscreens are suitable for use by all ages, in fresh water, salt water and are reef friendly, non-comedogenic (they don't
block the pores in your skin) and are broad spectrum, protecting your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
Naturally Based vs Chemically Based
Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing UV rays and converting them to heat, whereas
natural sunscreens work by creating a reflective barrier against the UV rays. Soléo sunscreens are also broad spectrum, using the natural ingredients to form a barrier against both UVA Rays (which cause skin aging) and UVB Rays (which cause sunburn). Chemical sunscreens often only protect against UVB rays, the ones causing the sunburn. This is a
bigger problem than most realise as UVA rays are one of the primary causes of skin cancer.
What Makes Us Different?
Soléo Organics began formulating it's sunscreen in 2005, with a vision to provide the
consumer with a naturally formulated alternative to the common synthetic sunscreens.
The result was one of the first all natural sunscreens to reach the consumer market.
Our sunscreens have been designed according to naturopathic principles without the use of any chemical UV-absorbers, titanium dioxide, or synthetic preservatives.
Created in Western Australia, Soléo Organics has now created and tested our range of
natural sunscreens for the last 16 years, and now ships them across the globe. We have also placed a special emphasis on the environment, with our packaging
being recyclable and formulas completely biodegradable.
It is our mission to improve the health and well being of people across the globe, by providing a natural alternative to the mass produced chemical sunscreens across the globe.
You can see our natural sunscreens on the page above. All of our sunscreens are 100%
natural & organic, our most popular products are the High Performance Natural Sunscreen with a very high level of water resistance for athletes and
parents alike, and the Natural Face Moisturising Sunscreen, which works as a spf moisturiser that can be applied very quickly and works very well underneath
makeup and other beauty products, also negating the need to apply a moisturiser.
What We Leave Out
Where chemical sunscreens work by using UV absorbing chemicals, ours uses natural ingredients and extracts to create a physical shield reflecting the suns UV
rays. We also avoid the use of other synthetic additives or preservatives such as titanium dioxide, synthetic fragrances, chemical preservatives,
petrochemicals, SLS, PABA, benzoates, mineral pools or synthetic by-products.
The environment is important to us as well, by not using chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate which cause coral bleaching, we ensure our sunscreen is reef
safe and not banned in countries like Hawaii and Palau.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) awarded Soléo's natural sunscreens with a number 1 rating.
The EWG works to bring awareness and educate people about the potential impact of
different ingredients on human health and the environment.
