Unlike other oils coconut oil provides a natural SPF of approximately 4. SPF 4 may not be much but when blended with zinc oxide it will increase the SPF protection.
Mid-Michigan Soaps makes a superior sunscreen and the difference is obvious. We start with a natural coconut oil and add a “broad-spectrum” zinc oxide to the formula creating a SPF 30*. SPF above 30 offer little noticeable difference in the amount of protection.
The broad-spectrum zinc oxide provides protection from both UVA and UVB light and the coconut oil can block up to 75% UV penetration.
BUT, we do not stop there. We also add in Mango Butter and Shea Butter, which blocks UV light and keeps skin hydrated and Vitamin E, helping to reduce free radicals reducing skin damage.
*Based on formula.
