People of the Earth – Sun Butter Illuminating Mineral Base


Formulated from excellent, non-toxic, pure and unprocessed cold-pressed, organic fair trade ingredients. Includes zinc oxide, rosehip oil and active manuka honey in a cacao butter base. SPF 40+
People of the Earth consider every ingredient for their social and ecological footprint. Their Shea Butter is sourced from women’s cooperatives in Tamale, Northern Ghana. Co-operative profits are managed by the women and go towards schools, clean water and medical centres. The Cacao Butter is sourced from the Peruvian Kemito Ene co-operative, reforesting the Amazonian basin, via Loving Earth. The Coconut Oil is sourced from Niugini organics, which is family owned and operated, providing income opportunities for women and single mothers in Papua New Guinea. The Jojoba, a carbon-negative drought resistant tree is sourced directly from Australian farmers. Finally, Myrrh is sustainably harvested & sold directly by a women’s start-up co-operative in Puntland, Somalia.
People of the Earth’s products do not harm the environment in their manufacture nor pollute it through their use. The brand’s ingredients are selected for their low impact on the environments they are grown in. They select keystone species whose cultivation supports native ecosystems, with cacao and shea being good examples of this. People of the Earth also select ingredients for their low impact on the ecosystems they will end up in, with particular attention to aquatic and marine environments. They are 100% plastic free and their product tins can be re-purposed or recycled. In addition, all of their postal packaging can be composted.
People of the Earth directly support co-operatives using profits to restore and conserve the environment and choose to prioritise women-led organisations who use profits to build schools and improve access to medical services and clean water for their families.

What our experts say...


People of The Earth’s Sun butter is a moisturising cream for the skin to help in sun protection! It goes on easily and rubs in really well. The product felt great on my face and was comfortable to wear all day long! Comes in a really handy and beautifully presented tin. I love how the brand has a great environmental focus!

This sunscreen comes in a super handy tin, so I can chuck one in my toddler’s beach bag and one in my handbag. I love that it’s plastic-free, and it doesn’t feel greasy or oily when applied. I really love that this company doesn’t use plastic in their packaging, labelling and freight, and I love that they have a policy about the supply chain they use, as well as the ingredients they pick for low-impact on the environment.

People of The Earth have created an Organic, meticulously sourced, plastic free Sun Butter which I love! It smells delicious enough to eat and leaves the skin feeling soft. I love their focus on responsible and ethical sourcing of each and every ingredient. Despite being in a tin, I found this cold-pressed product really easy to apply. The devil is in the detail with this product. People of the Earth have gone to great lengths to source ethically, naturally, organically, sustainably and transparently. They are very aware of the impact that each and every decision they make has on our environment. This shows a strong commitment to creating a conscious brand that genuinely delivers against its values!
