    Hi there

    What SPF is the recipe? Is it water resistant?

    My husband and I used it yesterday and we both got really burnt. Should we add more zinc oxide powder to make it stronger?

      Hi Sandra,
      So sorry to hear this. Unfortunately we haven’t had this homemade sunscreen tested so we cannot say what the SPF is.
      It’s not water resistant as all the ingredients are made from 100% real food (except the zinc). Yes you can definitely try experimenting with different ratios of the zinc oxide. Good luck.
