In keeping with our ongoing efforts to provide full transparency, the following is a letter from our founders including details about our new sunscreen:
To all of our loyal customers and fans,
Since our launch over five years ago, we’ve been working hard at developing the safest, most gentle products for your family. We are proud of the stringent standards to which we hold our company. Our Dolphin Organics™ line is certified to NSF/ANSI 305 standards by QAI Inc. Recently, we also took the extra step to work diligently with the Environmental Working Group and are thrilled to now be EWG VERIFIED™. It is always our highest priority to create all-natural products which meet these premium standards and yet still deliver efficacy.
With regards to our DO Naturals™ broad spectrum sunscreen, this means providing an effective, safe product that has been honored with rave reviews by customers, retailers and the press. Our sunscreen has been given the thumbs up by The Baby Guy NYC, All Natural Mom 101, Glamorganic Goddess and Florum Fashion. And, our most scrutinizing panel – customers like yourself – have continuously posted 5 star reviews online .
We highly value the feedback provided by our customers, partners and Dolphin Moms™. Many of our customers love how well our sunscreen rubs into skin compared to other mineral sunscreens, but some found the consistency thick and told us that it left a bit more white residue than they desire. This is a natural side effect of any sunscreen that is free of nanoparticles, but we took a closer look at our formula to see if it could be improved upon. After much research, we established a new recipe that disappears better than ever and still provides broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
The active ingredients in our SPF 32 sunscreen remain Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, and our sunscreen remains food-grade and vegan. Here are details about the changes we made to the other ingredients:
- We removed Vitamin C, Citric Acid, Glycerin and Lactic Acid and replaced them with Watermelon extract, Pomegranate extract and Corn.
- We removed Macadamia Nut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil, so that our sunscreen could be used by families with nut allergies. We also removed Cocoa Butter and replaced all three with Avocado Oil which provides the same hydrating benefits.
- We added Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate to improve the efficacy of our preservative system and ensure a stable product once exposed to the pools, beaches, sands and other outdoor elements
- All of the other ingredients remain the same.
Currently these changes have only been made to our SPF 32 sunscreen, but we do plan to make the same changes to our SPF 50 next summer.
We are excited to share this new sunscreen with you and are looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
One of the many benefits of being a small family business is that we can remain nimble and responsive to your families’ needs. We look forward to growing our family with yours.
