fat marshmallow non nano zinc oxide tallow sun cream!

The sun is the most important resource we have, and I’m all for some unprotected time in it daily (especially early mornings) but sometimes we need a little extra protection from our best friend - with 20% non nano zinc oxide (approximately 30SPF), this sun cream with give you that extra protection you're looking for!
That protection shouldn’t come with long term risks to our well being, or the well being of the plants & animal that surround us.
So what better way than with a tallow based mineral sun cream?!
I personally field tested this baby in the 100° blazing sun at the bottom of the Grand Canyon over a 4 day, 30+ mile hike and came away NOT looking like a twin to those towering red rock walls! So soak it in, but sometimes, maybe rub some on as well!
This is a mineral sunscreen, and can leave light white cast on the skin if not fully rubbed in. We recommend applying generously prior to sun exposure, after every 60 minutes of continued exposure, as well as after swimming and heavy sweat sessions.
Ingredients: tallow, non nano zinc oxide, beeswax, marshmallow root, vanilla bean
If you've been with us long, you already know the incredible benefits of using the right kind of fat for your skin i.e.tallow (if you're new here, welcome! Go check out the "WHY TALLOW" tab!), so now lets talk about marshmallow root! The marshmallow plant has been used in herbal medicine for centuries, and is native to Northern Africa and Eastern Europe, and grows throughout North America, Marshmallow root has been cherished in skincare for just as long, providing instant hydration, while it continuously works to improve the skin's ability to retain moisture, and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits. It also contains a naturally occuring botanical form of hyaluronic acid that can firm the skin and increase moisture levels. This comes from a thick, gum-like substance called mucilage within the root.
Just as much thought went into the look of fat marshmallow as it did into the ingredients and formulation. Retro food packaging is a design DREAM & the marshmallow fluff jars are iconic AF. If you knew Vellum St founder and former chef Melissa Torre in the Cookie Confidential days, you know her cupcake line, Undercover Cupcake, came exclusively in jelly jars with red lids, with a fluffy cream cheese frosting piped in thick layers above, below & in between the cakes. fat marshmallow is a nod in part to those two tasty treats, but done Vellum style, for your skin!
