MOTHER SPF uses only 9 ingredients that are either certified organic, sustainable sourced, reef safe and 100% naturally derived.
We are proud as punch to report every ingredient in MOTHER SPF, we certainly have nothing to hide!

Non Nano Zinc Oxide

This guy is where the magic happens. It is the safest ingredient for protecting the skin against the harmful effects of both UVA and UVB Rays, and has other cool bonus benefits like being photostable, possessing healing properties, reducing inflammation, and even stimulating collagen!

Coco-Caprylate / Caprate 

This is a mixture of plant derived coconut alcohol (a fatty alcohol derived from coconut oil and a powerful protectant from dehydrated skin and sun damage), caprylic acid and capric acid – 2 out of 3 fatty acids in coconut oil and a powerful immune and gut health supplement. This mixture is also a bloody good natural emollient, as well as being biodegradable.

Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate 

This is vegetable based and derived from Ricin Oleic Acid (super high in omega-9 fatty acid) and glycerol (a plant-based super moisturizer). It has no potential for irritation and has antimicrobial properties, which inhibit the growth of many viruses, yeasts, and molds, but don’t disturb the skins microbiome. Claps for non-moldy products and healthy skin!

Isostearic Acid 

A mix of Oleic acid and stearic acid. Both are the good kind of fatty acid’s that occur naturally in various animal and vegetable fats and oils (Mothers is derived from our vegetable friends) and is used to help keep the zinc evenly dispersed within the cream AKA no patchy sunburn here folks.

Caprylic Capric Triglyceride (CTT)

A fatty acid emollient, dispersing agent and solvent that is derived from coconut oil.This is able to quickly penetrate the surface to condition the skin, and helps enhance the delivery of vitamins, pigments and other active ingredients contained in a solution so that they become evenly spread out and fully absorbed by the epidermis = nourished AF, happy chappy skin.

Coconut Oil

Some people are scared of poor coconut oil, but coconut oil contains Vitamin E, essential amino acids, and lauric and caprylic acid which form part of the barrier function of your skin and help maintain your skin's natural flora, like a probiotic for your face. 

Castor Oil

Castor oil has been a vibe for hundreds of years in western and Indian medicine and naturally contains a unique and beneficial mixture of triglycerides or fatty acids. This makes it a champion ingredient for products intended to protect the skin in harsh, dry environments and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Candelilla Wax

This plant wax is a vegan, cruelty free alternative to beeswax and a sustainable alternative to petroleum waxes and other solvent derived or palm derived waxes. Additional points for: increasing the residence time of natural emollients on the skin and helping to provide a protective, moisture resistant environment for skin.

Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E)

A powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from the damaging effects of pesky free radicals and other environmental pollutants that can cause skin damage and ageing, so it has our vote straight up. Other benefits include: prevents oxidation of other ingredients (such as oil) in a formulation, boosting their effectiveness and strengthens the skin's barrier function by reducing water loss through the skin.
