About Facial Sun Protection Oil
This offers some SPF sun protection without use of any zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. I can not guarantee an SPF factor since I have not tested it, yet. Both pomegranate and red raspberry seed oils carry a high SPF, for example raspberry seed oil has been tested to be an SPF ranging from 28-50 (Oomah et al 2000).
Tamanu oil is the oil the Polynesians used for hundreds of years to protect themselves from the sun. Helichrysum and myrrh also have a reputation to offer sun protection since they both live in dry harsh sunny climates, these plants have learned how to protect themselves from the sun in their environment and they share their oils with us to offer the same protection. Thank you Myrrh trees and Helichrysum flowers.
