Since I became vegan, I also ditched most of my old beauty products which I found out were laden with chemicals and often not animal-cruelty free.

Even brands that purport to be 'natural' often still contain nasties.

I recently discovered a new brand though, Tropic Skincare, which really does have very natural ingredients, so I thought I would give it a try since they kindly sent me some goodies to try.

It was great to find a suncare product that fits the bill: their SKIN SHADE MINERAL SUN PROTECTION 

It's great! It's really natural, lighter than foundation and blends really easily whilst giving a hint of bronze colour that warms the skin.

Here is what their website says about it:

Cost GBP £28

A broad spectrum, water resistant, mineral sunscreen range to keep skin protected from the sun, and prevent premature skin ageing.

• 100% mineral protection from zinc oxide and titanium dioxide

• Exotic kahai and roucou oils, rich in omega fatty acids, keep skin soft and hydrated

• Extracts of antioxidant-rich Australian kakadu and illawarra plum protect the skin


Rose Petal Infused Water, Purified Water, Zinc Oxide Sun Filter, Coconut Derived Emollients, Olive Derived Emulsifiers, Plant Derived Emulsifier, Roucou Oil, Kahai Oil, Extracts of Kakadu Plum, Illawarra Plum and Burdekin Plum, Vitamin E, Plant Glycerin, Sunflower Seed Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Corn Sugar Gum, Plant Phytic Acid, Gentle Preservative System, Water Resistant Polymers, Sun Filter Dispersants, Sugar Beet Lactic Acid, Iron Oxide Pigments

Super natural ingredients!

Here is some background on the Company:

Susan Ma's love for developing natural beauty recipes stems from her upbringing and life in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland in Australia, where she was surrounded by the amazing plants and botanical actives that inspire many of Tropic's formulations today. After appearing on BBC’s The Apprentice in 2011, Susan is given the opportunity to present her passion and vision for natural and cruelty free skincare to Lord Alan Sugar. Impressed by the products, he spots a unique business opportunity and invests to become a 50/50 partner.
