Green Beaver has introduced the first certified organic sunscreen to be approved by Health Canada! This sunscreen is fragrance free and contains no nano or coated particles which is an important factor to consider when purchasing a natural sunscreen.
Green Beaver sunscreen contains Canadian-grown anti-oxidant rich raspberry extract.
As always, the best protection from the sun is to avoid exposure during peak hours and to wear protective clothing and a hat. For children under 6 months, please consult a doctor before use.
Green beaver certified organic sunscreen is:
- Certified Organic
- Health Canada approved
- Non-silicone coated
Note: This product is pending FDA approval in the USA, so until that time we can only ship it to Canadian addresses.
Please note that this Green Beaver Certified Organic Children's Sunscreen Lotion is the exact same formulation as the Green Beaver Certified Organic Adult Sunscreen Lotion, the only difference is the packaging for marketing purposes.

Green Beaver Certified Organic Sunscreen FAQ
Some of these ingredients do not sound very
natural, are they really?
Some Green Beaver's plant extracts do not
sound very natural (e.g., sorbitan olivate, d-alpha tocopheryl acetate,
caprylic/capric triglyceride) although they actually are 100% natural. Being
certified organic means that these plant extracts are derived by green
technology. That is, without the use of chemicals and following ecological and
certified organic approved methods (e.g., cold pressed, fermentation).
Furthermore, organic certification does not allow synthetic substitutes. For
example, Green Beaver utilizes plant-derived d-alpha tocopheryl acetate (vitamin
E) and not synthetic vitamin E. Certified organic regulation also does not allow
any GMO plants extracts.
Why do you say "dicaprylyl carbonate" instead
of "safflower extract?"
Health Canada regulations require that we
specify the name of the ingredient that has been extracted from the safflower
plant. A sunscreen with an ingredient listed as e.g., "safflower extract" on its
label means that it is not following Health Canadaâ€™s regulation or is simply not
registered with Health Canada.
