I’m proud of all the products we offer in the Apothekari line-up but I couldn’t be prouder of our new sunscreen, Shade SPF 30! Serious skin care deserves a serious sunscreen. Shade SPF 30 has been a long time coming and I’m absolutely delighted to be able to finally offer it to you!

This new zinc oxide, chemical sun filter FREE sunscreen is Health Canada approved and delivers a range of features, making it an ideal choice for all skin types and those of you seeking a natural, physical blocking sunscreen. Shade SPF 30 offers:

  • Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection
  • Non-whitening application (trust me on this. I tried many, many formulations and this one leaves no white cast at all…)
  • Antioxidant support
  • Suitability for all skin types. Especially suitable for sensitive skin and individuals with melasma.

It’s also fragrance and colorant free & gluten free too!

A Chemical Filter Free, Mineral Based Sunscreen

Formulated with 13.5% zinc oxide (ZinClear), Shade SPF 30 offers healing, soothing and calming properties. Red algae extract (a UV absorbing substance) and ergothioneine (a natural antioxidant and amino acid, which prevents UV damage) offer additional UV protection and help support against free radical damage.

It is an absolute must-have for anyone concerned about the health of their skin.

Like all Apothekari products, Shade SPF 30 is free from:

  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Formaldehyde
  • Synthetic colorants and fragrances
  • Silicone

It is cruelty-free and never tested on animals.

Key Ingredients

  1. Zinc Oxide. Broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB exposure which also promotes healing, soothes and calms the skin
  2. Thiotaine® (ergothioneine). Natural antioxidant and amino acid, prevents damage caused by UV radiation, recycles Vitamin C, assures efficient energy production, inhibits Tyrosinase (responsible for melanin production)
  3. Porphyra Umbilicalis (Red Algae) Extract. Organism that lives in shallow water where it is exposed to extreme UV radiation, produces the most powerful UV-absorbing substances in nature, and the extract itself absorbs both UVA and UVB light.

Shade SPF 30 should be applied to clean skin 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Use it daily and allow it to absorb before applying make-up. Product should be “patted” on, not rubbed in. As this is a physical sunscreen, the product sits on top of skin and is not absorbed. Reapply frequently. *Designed for facial use and not water resistant so use a water resistant sunscreen if sweating or swimming.

Apply Shade SPF 30 daily along with Apothekari Bespoke Vitamin C Serum each morning (serum first, followed by sunscreen) to benefit from unparalleled protection against free radicals (Shade SPF 30 Sunscreen + Bespoke Vitamin C Serumgenerated by exposure to UV rays, pollution and daily living) and UV rays.

Keep in mind that while daily sunscreen use is one of the best ways to minimize skin damage and can help to reduce the risk of developing some types of skin cancer, that sun smart habits are important too:

  1. Stay out of the sun during its peak hours, between 10 am and 4 pm.
  2. Seek shade when possible.
  3. Cover up with hats, sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts and pants.

We hope that you love this sunscreen as much as we love bringing it to you!

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
