Goodbye OUCH Sun Balm, a NATRUE certified natural sunscreen for lips and skin, provides the ultimate in protection, delivering a high performance sunscreen for outdoor adventures.

The range features a number of variants for face and body, and Goodbye OUCH Sun Balm’s Lip Balm is the first New Zealand made NATRUE certified SPF lip balm.  All formats offer 50SPF with two hours water resistance or SPF40 with four hours water resistance.

Kerikeri based natural products company founder Becky Cashman created the sunscreen to have high performance protection and be a balm to lips and skin. Certified organic cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut, jojoba, olive, tamanu and peppermint oils are combined with zinc oxide minerals to create a high quality, smooth blend, rich in vitamins A, C and E which protects and soothes skin. This is a product which smells beautiful and you are going to WANT to put on your skin!

Unlike other sun screens, Goodbye OUCH Sun Balm does not contain water, meaning it will not slide off skin, spread on too thin, or creep into eyes. Water-free also means every ingredient is working to give moisturising, skin barrier and antioxidant support.

Goodbye is the first grocery brand in New Zealand to receive the internationally recognised NATRUE certification, managed by BioGro NZ, verifying natural and organic cosmetic products.
