About On Hand Lotions:
Combining a love of adventure and dedication to natural ingredients, owner and founder Hayna Weems began creating safe, convenient body care in her home kitchen nearly ten years ago. The On Hand Lotions collection grew quickly and became popular with farmers and parents and musicians alike. All products are crafted using organically grown, all natural ingredients and original formulas. Fifty percent of the herbs used are grown by Hayna and her family, and every item is mixed, poured, and labeled by hand in a small refitted chocolate factory in the beautiful New York Finger Lakes.

Sunscreen/sunblock lotion sticks: convenient, portable, mess-free skin protection. Makes a great gift for athletes, families, coaches, fishermen, hunters, and anyone outdoorsy. It goes on smoothly with minimal white cast, unlike many "goopier" natural sunscreens on the market. This formulation has been tested by an independent lab and offers SPF 35 or more. Many of the handmade sunscreens you'll find have not been tested. In conjunction with antioxidant oils and butters, non-nano zinc oxide works by forming a protective layer over the skin. It is not absorbed into the skin and therefore, unlike conventional chemical sunscreens, Sun's Up! does not require a waiting period before sun exposure.*
Directions: Apply liberally to exposed skin 15 minutes before sun exposure, then rub as needed to minimize whitening appearance. Reapply at least every two hours or after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating. Reapply immediately after towel drying. Ask a doctor before using on children under 6 months of age. For external use only. Do not use on damaged or broken skin. Stop use and ask a doctor if rash occurs. Keep out of eyes. Rinse with water to remove. While the organic beeswax and vegetable butters help make this lotion water-resistant, reapplication will help ensure full protection.

IMPORTANT: Age recommendations: sunscreen is not recommended for full-coverage use on infants under 6 months as it can interfere with their heat regulation. A good hat and shade are the best sun defense for young infants. For small areas like feet/ankles/calves or forearms while in a carrier or stroller, however, it is fine.
