Little Urchin natural sunscreen inspired by nature…

LittleUrchin_Final_v01_380x@2x

LITTLE URCHIN is a unique blend of natural, mineral & zinc based sunscreen, made in Australia providing UVA & UVB broad spectrum protection. It was developed by Chris Mathews, a father who knew enough about the harmful chemicals in most supermarket sunscreens to know he didn’t want his young daughter wearing thick, cakey chemical-smelling sunscreen.

That’s not the end of our little story though; LITTLE URCHIN is also a story inspired by nature. Like humans, sea urchins are sensitive to light & chemicals. In fact, these clever little fellows have evolved to create their own natural sunscreen to protect their young from the sun’s harsh rays. These amazing critters are full of delightful & surprising examples of Mother Nature at her best. I bet you didn’t know that these spindly creatures are known to live more than 100 years without showing any biological signs of ageing!

Our products…

LITTLE URCHIN is more than just any ordinary sunscreen. It has been created using a natural formula that provides proven sun protection without harming your skin or the environment. The sunscreen’s formulation is rich in nourishing oils, butters & antioxidants, with the addition of green tea, cucumber & rosehip oil making it a great natural alternative sunscreen & perfect for those with sensitive skin!

Environment…

LITTLE URCHIN are beautifully crafted natural products, that are environmentally sustainable, but also ‘reef safe’ & ‘ecofriendly’ to help ensure the protection of the natural habitats of all living creatures.

Studies indicate the ingredients used to formulate LITTLE URCHIN are ‘reef safe’ & not harmful to coral. The key ingredient, Zinc Oxide, is a powered mineral that doesn’t dissolve in seawater, rather, it settles to the seafloor & becomes buried in sediment. The other ingredients in LITTLE URCHIN sunscreen are biodegradable & safe for any ecosystem.
