The Ayurvedic Sun Cream is a thick blend of antioxidant rich herbs and plant oils that have high natural SPF factors, then mixed with zinc and aloe vera. While some individuals choose to use the sun cream in place of sunscreen, others use it as a protective or restorative moisturizer in addition to regular sunscreen, depending on their individual SPF needs. The blend includes wheat germ seed oil and raspberry seed oil, each of which have an estimated natural spf level ranging from 20-30. Cranberry seed oil, also included in the blend, is an extremely bioavailable source of vitamin E. Use it on your face and body, and reapply after time spent in water.
Surya, the Sankrit word for sun, is an unscented version, while Bastet’s blend contains lavender and myrrh essential oils. These essential oils also help to protect the skin from UV rays. In Ancient Egypt, Myrrh oil was spread on the body for this exact purpose, and thus the blend is named for the Egyptian Cat Goddess, Bastet.
