Ingredients Infographic

As a sunscreen company, product transparency is of the utmost importance to us and if it doesn’t come from the earth it isn’t in our sunscreen products. Our customers trust us to deliver the safest most effective sunscreen with the least environmental impact and that’s a job we take seriously. Riptide Sunscreen is free of artificial chemicals, preservatives, fragrances, or fillers that are known toxins to humans and marine life. We believe consumers have a right to know exactly what’s going on their skin and into the world’s oceans.

We produce our proprietary sunscreen formulas in our FDA registered facility to ensure we have complete control over every aspect of the manufacturing process. Every raw ingredient is carefully selected by us to guarantee the highest quality sunscreen with the least environmental impact.

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

A mineral of the earth, it’s the only single active ingredient that provides a full range of protection from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. It is also the only active ingredient studies have found to be safe for marine life and is approved by the FDA for infants under 6 months old.

Organic Coconut Oil

It’s a myth that Coconut Oil alone can protect your skin from the sun but in conjunction with Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, this oil (rich in fatty acids) helps replenish essential moisture to overexposed skin.

Organic Shea Butter

A superfood for the skin, Shea Nut Butter comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and provides natural UV protection. Naturally anti-inflammatory, this butter’s healing properties make it an ideal ingredient for preventing and reducing sunburns.

Organic Beeswax

Touting its own anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, Beeswax forms a protective barrier on the skin and helps make our sunscreen Water Resistant beyond 80 Minutes.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil

Bursting with antioxidants, research has found that Red Raspberry Seed Oil can absorb UVB and UVC rays. Rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, this oil helps restore skin that has been depleted by the sun.

Carrot Seed Oil

Popular for its anti-aging benefits, this oil provides a natural degree of UV protection while combating the sun’s ability to increase skin aging, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Organic Grape Seed Oil

Chosen for its ability to heal and moisturize, Grape Seed Oil nourishes the skin after spending long periods of time in the sun. This oil can reduce the adverse effects of UV rays on the skin and protects from free radicals.

Natural Vitamin E (Derived from Sunflower Oil)

Beware of synthetic Vitamin E derivatives and rest assured that our Natural Vitamin E comes from Sunflower Oil and not Soybean Oil. The benefits of Vitamin E for the skin are endless and this oil can help soothe sunburned skin.

Organic Cacao Powder (Tinted Sunscreen)

We utilize the power of Cacao Powder to neutralize the white look of the Non-Nano Zinc Oxide. In addition to being a superfood for the skin and a natural bronzer, Cacao Powder protects from free radicals and sun damage.
