Sun Formula

OUR FORMULA

What goes into creating a sunscreen like no other? Only the cleanest, hardest-working natural ingredients on the planet. We took out all the things that aren’t great for you or the environment and replaced them with high-performance plants and minerals. That means no parabens, gluten, petroleum, or synthetic fragrances. We also use non-nano zinc oxide, which is both ocean and reef safe.

Every ingredient in the Taos Aer Mineral Sunscreen has a purpose — some even pull double duty. Plant oils like sunflower and pomegranate provide hydration and nourishment, while also creating a physical barrier on the skin. This is our natural approach to water resistance. The zinc in our formula is designed to have an invisible, dry finish so you don’t have to worry about a greasy feel or a chalky appearance.

As for the scent, we brought a little bit of our home to yours with an essential oil blend that transports you to a trek through the Rocky Mountains. They blend to create a harmonious unisex fragrance that is subtle, fresh, and doesn’t overstay its welcome.


HOW TO USE

For full protection, apply liberally to skin 15 minutes before sun exposure. During sun exposure, reapply: After 40 minutes of swimming or sweating, immediately after towel drying, and at least every two hours. 

Sun Protection Measures: Spending time in the sun increases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.

    Love this sunscreen for so many reasons.

    This is the first clean sunscreen I've ever tried and I'm never going back to the chemical variety. This product is effective AND safe, smells nice, and doesn't leave a white cast. It does require a couple extra minutes to apply because of the thicker consistency, but I'm willing to do that to protect my skin with a CLEAN product.

    Love this product!

    Love this product so much! It smells great, clean ingredients and lasts all day. Most zinc based sunscreens I’ve tried leave a white cast on my skin but this one absorbs really well! I will definitely be buying more of this for next summer!

    High quality sunscreen

    Brought this on a recent trip to Puerto Rico, it was a lifesaver. Worked really well, blended in nicely and lasted. It also smells great!

    Really Long Lasting

    No heavy sunscreen smell and the reapplication was minimal during my 8 hour days on construction sites. I could see a faint white cast at first but it absorbed completely after working it well into my skin.

    Good mineral sunscreen

    This sunscreen is light, goes on smooth, and lasts a long time. Really good mineral sunscreen, would be even better with higher SPF coverage
