DIY All Natural Sunscreen with Minerals by Going Zero Waste uses shea butter, almond oil, and vitamin E oil for extra nourishment. It has an SPF of about 15 and is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes. Personalize it by adding your favorite essential oil.


1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons of Shea Butter: 3-6 SPF

1/4 Cup of Cocoa Butter: 0 SPF

2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil: 2-8 SPF

2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil: 2-8 SPF

2 Tablespoons of Vitamin E oil

2 oz (approx. 1/4 Cup) of Zinc Oxide: 20+ SPF


Melt the shea butter and cocoa butter or beeswax in a double boiler. After it’s melted, stir in the other oils. Let it cool for 2-3 minutes and then stir in the zinc oxide making sure not to inhale it.

Let the mixture set up overnight, and you’ll have a very nourishing sunscreen in the morning! It’s almost the texture of body butter.
