Product reviews from our experts…


Adorable packaging with the little urchin, love the colour scheme. I love the consistency, not much residue at all, it feels really nice on the skin, more like a moisturiser not sunscreen which is refreshing, it also absorbs well into the skin. There isn’t much of a scent, fairly neutral. My oldest son has sunscreen sensitivities, but none of us have had any reactions to the sunscreen. It’s great that it’s reef and ocean safe. I love the high SPF coverage too! I was so amazed to hear that they donate a percentage of their sales revenues to environmental organizations worldwide, that is so generous and kind. I also like that the business reviews and evaluates its operations and takes part in sustainability initiatives in an effort to continuously improve.

A kids reef safe sunscreen that’s SPF 50+ and 4 hours water resistant?! What’s not to love!! Great formulation which is then supported with packaging that can be recycled – big tick from us. Kids loved that it was non-greasy and fragrance free too. Not only are the ingredients great and safe for the environment but care has been taken while creating the branding to ensure that the box, tube and delivery are also aligned. As a company it’s great to see that they’re part of 1% For The Planet, donating at least 1% of annual sales revenues to environmental organizations worldwide.

The Little Urchin Zinc Sunscreen is a great vegan sunscreen that is non greasy and easy to apply. The tube is easy to use and the sunscreen has a SPF 50+ rating. I also love that the sunscreen is reef safe and the company supports 1% For the Planet.
