After sun exposure your skin needs extra attention to treat or prevent any potential damage and in turn restore its health and radiance. Here’s a home made after-sun lotion that you can create in minutes from your own home. It’s a powerful non-toxic all natural lotion which can help hydrate, soothe, and cool your skin after any time in the sun.
Adding our Organic Baobab Powder gives this lotion a boost of natural Vitamin C which acts as an antioxidant which may decrease oxidative stress induced by UV-Radiation.*
Coconut Oil is one of nature’s richest moisturisers and contains fatty acids, which improve skin moisture retention and elasticity. It also contains medium chain fatty acids which provide energy your skin needs to heal itself.
Aloe Vera and Aloe Ferox both have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and also contain active compounds that may decrease pain.
DIY After Sun Lotion
- 6x tbsp Organic Aloe Vera Gel or Organic Aloe Ferox Juice
- 15x drops of Organic Chamomile Essential Oil*
- 1x tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp Organic Baobab Powder
*For children and pregnant women leave out the chamomile oil
How to create:

Store in a cool, dark place and this lotion should last for the summer. But we suggest storing it in the refrigerator because it will feel that much better on scorched skin.
