Protect Your Skin and the Planet: The Benefits of Natural Sunscreen

Protect Your Skin and the Planet: The Benefits of Natural Sunscreen

New Zealand's summer is a season of sun, sand and the sea. However, with our beautiful sun comes a great responsibility – sun protection. At Huckleberry, we understand the importance of safeguarding your skin against harmful UV rays, and we're here to guide you towards making a conscious choice - natural sunscreens.

Why Sun Protection is Crucial in NZ Summer

New Zealand experiences some of the highest levels of UV radiation in the world. This is due to several factors, including our proximity to the ozone hole over Antarctica and the Earth's elliptical orbit. The intense UV rays can cause not only painful sunburns but also long-term skin damage and an increased risk of skin cancer.

Natural Sunscreens: A Safer Choice for You and the Environment

Recognising these risks, Huckleberry offers a range of sunscreens made from naturally derived ingredients. These products are not only effective at blocking harmful UV rays but also are kind to your skin and the environment.

Coral Safe and Eco-Friendly

Our oceans are suffering from the damage caused by chemical sunscreens, which contain ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, known to bleach and damage coral reefs. By choosing our natural sunscreens, you contribute to protecting marine life. Our products are coral safe, ensuring that your sun protection doesn't come at the cost of our precious marine ecosystems.

Dermatologically Tested for Sensitive Skin

We understand that skin sensitivity is a concern for many. That's why our natural sunscreens are dermatologically tested and proven safe for those with sensitive skin. They are free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances, making them an ideal choice for anyone seeking a gentle yet effective sunscreen.

Gentle Enough for Babies and Little Ones

Your little one's skin requires extra care. Our range of natural sunscreens is gentle enough for babies and children. With natural ingredients, these sunscreens provide the protection your family needs without the risk of irritation or skin allergies.


Remember, while you enjoy the beautiful NZ summer, it's vital to protect your skin. With Huckleberry's natural sunscreens, you can soak up the sun, knowing you've made the best choice for yourself, your loved ones, and the planet.
