Vidoma Naturals Sunscreen Lotion Review





Tell Your Friends:

Vidoma Sunscreen


Remember Vidoma Naturals, the company whose bug spray I recently reviewed? Well, they also sent me a Sunscreen Lotion to try. I used it on a recent trip to the beach with Kirby’s family, and today I’ll be sharing my thoughts.

Ingredients (provided at “Jojoba lotion, aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) gel, organic extra virgin coconut (Cocos Nucifera) oil, argan (Argania spinosa) oil, organic sunflower oil (Helianthus annuus), zinc oxide, titanium oxide, Vitamin E (Tocopherol), green tea (Camellia sinesis) extract, and organic shea butter (butryospermum parkii fruit). ”

The preliminary report that I created for this product in the Cosmetics Database gives it a hazard score of 2. The only ingredient with a hazard score above a 2 is jojoba lotion, which is considered a proprietary ingredient.

Some great things about this product:

1. It’s free of parabens and more dangerous sunscreen agents like oxybenzone.

2. It’s safe for children under 5 years.

3. It contains organic ingredients.

Product Description(provided at “ViDoma’s Sunscreen Lotion is a blend of natural ingredients and essential oils designed to protect the skin from the damaging rays of the sun.”

Price$15.95 for a 4 oz bottle.

Performance– Since I’m not accustomed to using sunscreens that haven’t been given an SPF value, I was a little worried that I’d burn easily while wearing this stuff. However, if you’ve read the EWG’s Nine Surprising Truths about sunscreen, then you know as well as I do that SPF value actually means very little and can actually encourage risky amounts of sun exposure. I applied this sunscreen every two hours while on the beach (the directions on the bottle suggested doing so every 4, but I like playing it safe), and I managed to make it through the week without getting burned (with the exception of my poor little knees since I neglected to reapply sunscreen to them on the first day). I even reapplied this product while relaxing for hours in the shade of a beach tent to ensure that I didn’t get any unwanted harmful rays.  Since I also had a bottle of Karen’s Botanicals Simple Sun Block Lotion to try (review to come), I didn’t use the Vidoma Naturals Sunscreen on my face. It doesn’t seem unnecessarily heavy or greasy, though, so I can’t really see it causing any problems in that area. As with most natural sunscreens, I’d suggest giving it a good shake before applying. I also noticed that this lotion didn’t leave my skin as white as other naturals I’ve used in the present/past, which was a surprising perk.

Scent– Faint and vaguely nutty.

Rating– I’m subtracting a single point for the one questionable ingredient. 9/10.

Would I purchase this item again? I would!
