Directions for use: To protect the hands, apply as needed, smoothing a small amount onto the skin throughout the day. To effectively protect against sun damage, apply this SPF hand cream 20 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every 2-4 hours. Always reapply after swimming or washing hands.
Please note: Green People sun creams are made with over 80% natural ingredients including a blend of safe, non-toxic filters which ensure that all Green People sun cream meets European UVA protection standards. Green People takes care to ensure that, unlike some chemical UV filters, their effective UV filters do not irritate the skin or harm the environment. However, in some instances the filters they use can stain some fabrics yellow. This staining is irreversible and, for this reason, we recommend that users take care when wearing white/ light fabrics over their sun cream and always allow the sun cream to soak into the skin before applying clothing.
Due to the high level of plant derived ingredients and the complex nature of the UV filters used in Green People's sun creams, they are prone to colour change during storage. This is entirely normal and whilst they are a creamy-white colour when first manufactured, they can develop a darker, tan shade over time. The rate at which this colour change takes place can be influenced by storage conditions, with warmer temperatures accelerating the process. This change in colour does not affect the UV protection offered by the sun creams.
