    Have you heard of Frankie Apothecary’s 100% natural sunscreen with SPF rating of 50? It is made In NZ and has no chemical additives. I suggest you look into it and include it in your Q&A session

    • Thanks Kylie, we will look into it! 🙂

  • Nicole Boisjoli

    Thanks for this and good timing! I needed to get more sunblock for my toddler and I’d rather use natural

  • Rebekah

    Hi there, I was wondering why you haven’t included Oasis SPF 30 in your range of natural sunscreens? I’ve been told its the one to buy….??

    • Caro

      I was just wondering the same thing…

    • Hi Rebekah and Caro – thanks for your comments. We’ve recently reviewed our strict standards to ensure we continue to provide the healthiest natural products for you. As a result we won’t be stocking sunscreens that contain the particular sunscreen agent used we understand is in this product. However we do have a great new range that we believe are the best natural options available. If you need any help choosing something to suit your personal needs, you are welcome to use our LIVE CHAT function on our website or contact our customer service team at [email protected]. Kind regards, HealthPost

      • Rebekah

        Which ingredient(s) are the bad ones in the Oais SPF 30 product? Thanks

        • Hi Rebekah. The ingredient that didn’t meet our standards was Ethyl-hexyl p-methoxycinnamic acid. Kind regards, Anya

  • Alison Ellis

    I was going to buy the Oasis sunscreen but see you no longer selling it – is there something wrong with it ??

    Hi
    Are any/all of these ok to use during pregnancy?
    Thanks.

    • Hi Andrea – thanks for asking this important question! Yes, they are all fine to use during pregnancy. Best wishes, HealthPost

  • Nicola Davis

    Hi. I dont see ‘Invisible Zinc’ on your list. Is this not an acceptable ‘natural’ option with active ingredient being Zinc Oxide with no chemical filters?

    • Hi Nicola, thanks for your query. Invisible Zinc products contained either Diazolidinyl urea or PEGs which are on our red list. We also couldn’t get complete answers on every ingredient as some were trademarked ingredients (made up of many things) and it was considered Intellectual property by the company. We believe customers should be able to fully understand what they are using and clearly that wouldn’t be possible with this particular brand. Kind regards, HealthPost

    Hi there. I see you stock many oasis products but not the sunscreens? Is this not a product you recommend? Thanks.

    • Hi Amy, thanks for your comment. We no longer stock the Oasis sunscreen as it no longer meets our recently reviewed high standards. However we do have a great new range that we believe are the best natural options available – you’ll find them all here http://www.healthpost.co.nz/natural-beauty-and-personal-care/sun-and-outdoors/natural-sunscreen. In terms of ease of use/value, our customer service team find that Solimara is the closest match for the Oasis sunscreen.

      • Amy l-b

        Thank you for your reply. I will look at trying the solimara. Can you clarify why the oasis is now excluded- ingredients that aren’t so great?? Thank you

        • Sure Amy – simply that the ingredients aren’t quite what we would now prefer in the sunscreens that we stock.

          • Kelly Sutton

            HI, can you please expand on the Oasis sunscreen? I got it as it seems as natural and effective as possible but you don’t have it (but you have other Oasis products?). Trying to do the best we can but its all very confusing.

          • We do understand it can be very confusing. Oasis products are fantastic, which is why we stock them. It’s just the straight Oasis sunscreen SPF30 that doesn’t quite meet our requirements in terms of ingredients. The BB creams with SPF all meet our requirements, which is why we stock them. We hope this helps Kelly.

          • Kelly Sutton

            That’s the one I got, after great reviews online :/ What ingredient is bad and and why exactly?

          • Hi Kelly. The ingredient that didn’t meet our standards was Ethyl-hexyl p-methoxycinnamic acid. Kind regards, HealthPost

          • Kelly Sutton

            Ok, thanks. I just googled it – SH**! Scary indeed! I’ll be contacting the company as it’s touted as natural and safe and expensive too. GAH!

  • Kelly Sutton

    HI, we’re using Cancer Society Kids Pure, it doesn’t have any of your red ingredients but does have some long scary names in there. I hate putting it on every day, but budget-wise, we can’t afford the very natural sun screens. Any ideas?

    • Hi Kelly, it can be tricky finding the balance can’t it. Please note that these red ingredients pictured are just some of the common chemical ingredients found in conventional sunscreens. You can see our full Red List of ingredients we recommend to avoid on our Good Ingredients Promise page: http://www.healthpost.co.nz/goodingredients.

      Our best value sunscreen is the Made4Baby SPF50+, which is independently tested and fragrance free. To make your product go a bit further, you could cover up with loose light weight clothing. You could also look at alternating the two products. All the best with a happy summer.
