A totally new type of “sunscreen” — soothes your skin, and protects at a cellular level against free radical damage and more!



In the heat of summer…it’s nice to be outside and enjoying the weather.  But who wants to risk a sunburn?  No one wants that!  Then there’s all the unhealthy chemicals most people smear all over their bodies to try to stay burn-free, but that’s pretty yucky, too.  It’s a total catch-22.

Skip that junk and try our Sun Shield instead!

What is Sun Shield?

It’s Earthley’s answer to sunscreen.  It’s a truly natural skin protector.  It works in an entirely different way than your standard sunscreen.

Most not-so-natural sunscreens use chemicals that absorb the sun’s rays, but they’re are also damaging to your cells. Other natural(ish) sunscreens use physical blocks, like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide to reflect the rays away from your skin.  That’s why they go on so thick and white, and why they’re hard to spread!

Neither of these types of sunscreens are actually good for your skin.  They do their job in preventing sunburns (sometimes), but they aren’t healthy for your body.  They come with drawbacks…sometimes serious ones.

Our Sun Shield is different.

It doesn’t absorb the rays or reflect them.  Instead, it sinks into your skin and helps to prevent damage at the cellular level.  We use pure, plant-based oils infused with whole organic herbs to nourish your skin, block free radicals, and protect your skin from redness, wrinkles, and damage.  Every single one of these ingredients has its own natural SPF and skin-nourishing properties.

It’s a totally new approach to a sunscreen!

**This product is one of our best-sellers!  Our customers have tried this all over the country, including southern states, with mostly very good results!  (Nothing works for 100% of people, but at least 95% of the feedback we receive is positive.)  We estimate a rough SPF of 20, but this is not based on lab tests.**

Simply rub a small amount of this lotion into your skin wherever there are exposed areas.  Reapply as needed every few hours.


Organic olive oil, avocado oil, virgin raspberry seed oil, grapeseed oil, mango butter, organic comfrey leaf, organic dandelion leaf, calendula flowers, and beeswax.


Rub a small amount into all exposed areas of skin 10 – 15 minutes before going outside.  Reapply every 2 – 3 hours.


This product and these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.  We make no claims about the SPF rating of this product, because it has not been tested in any lab (only real-world tests).  It is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure anything.

    Okay, So I will start off by saying I live in Sunny (and hot) El Paso Texas. I was a little reluctant to try this here, thinking it may not be strong enough to withstand this sun, so I only bought a sample size.
    The first time I tried it I only tried it on myself, and used a “chemically infused sunscreen” with my children “Just in case” I have very fair skin and swear I could burn on a rainy day. I didn’t burn at all.
    The next time I used it on my children and in the midst of the chaos of having three children- I forgot to put any sun protectant on myself- I burned so bad, but my kids were fine.
    Technically, this isn’t waterproof- However, because it does seep into the skin, we have used it at the splash pad and just reapplied a little more often with amazing results. Definitely a must have for summer fun.

    I used this on several consecutive hot sunny days, a few weeks ago. To my surprise, I wasn’t even a little pink! As long as you reapply every hout or so, you are good to go. A little goes a long way for me.

    I haven’t tried this outside yet. The smell reminds me a little of salad dressing, probably just all the olive oil. It is not offensive, but I was wondering if you could but an essential oil in it perhaps to make it smell a little more appealing. I am so thrilled that is natural though, and this is what is prompting me to buy more than the sample. Thanks for doing what you are doing. I considered making these products myself, but it can be a big time commitment. So you are making my life easier. 🙂

    I don’t want to leave a bad review because I love the other products I’ve tried and I love what you all do, but I’m just going to be honest here.
    I have very fair skin and live in Southern California. I really wanted to love this, because I wanted something super natural and gentle for me and my family. So, I put it on and it’s super oily on your skin. That’s no surprise since it has olive oil in it, but if you don’t like greasy sunscreens, this will definitely not be for you! We were only out in the sun for 2-3 hours, but me and two out of three of my kids burned (the ones who inherited my fair skin). Maybe it would have worked if I had reapplied…I don’t know.
    So, for me, the greasiness and the lack of effectiveness for a couple hours is enough to make me not want to use it again. But, I’d say if you can put up with those two things, you might still want to give it a try.

    we LOVE this product! We have used it on our 13 month old who has sensitive and fair skin and she has not gotten burnt once. We just spent a weekend at a festival in the sun and it protected her perfectly. I just ordered the big one after using up the sample I got. Thank you for these products 🙂 Am looking to try more products from you.

    Ok, I was truly skeptical about this, but ordered the 4oz anyway since it was on sale. I decided to be brave and use only this while gardening with my mom in 90 degree weather and sun beaming down. I burn easily. I was out for about 2 hours and went in for water and reapplied. Back out for 3 more hours and no reapplication. I didn’t burn at all and got a few shades darker. I love the herbal smell of this and so does my mom. She ordered some to try the next day. I feel good about using this on my baby and my family. It is an awesome product and the cleanest ingredients I have ever seen in a sun product. I will continue using this for as long as they make it!

    This not only protects skin from getting burnt, but actually moisturizes. Finally sun protection that’s good for your skin! Doesn’t irritate or dry out my daughter’s eczema. We have used this several times at the beach and pool without getting sunburned.

    This stuff is AWESOME. I got it in the kids summer first aid kit at the beginning of the summer for my then 11-mo daughter, and I am solidly hooked! I put it on her if we’re ever out during peak sun hours, and she –
    coming from two blond, blue-eyed, fair-skinned parents – is our lovely little tan baby. AND WE LIVE IN TEXAS. One time we went to a splash pad in the middle of the day, I put Sun Shield on my face, put some natural zinc-based stuff on my shoulders, and missed part of my back. Let me tell you, I got a nice burn on my back, rosy enough on my shoulders, and nothing but a little tan to my face. This will become a staple for my household.

    Okay, I’m reading these reviews again and wonder if I got a “bad batch”. I really want it to work since I don’t like the other natural sun screens. I wouldn’t say I’m very fair skinned, but I’ve burned twice when using this on my chest that wasn’t already tanned. I feel like my arms still got a little pink even though they are tan. Was in sun about 1-2 hrs both times. Use with caution!

    We have to send sunscreen to daycare with our 2 year old, she goes outside daily and has never burned. I love that it’s not greasy and doesn’t have an over powering scent.

    I have very fair skin and burn easily. I live in Michigan and we take a two week vacation to southern Florida in early June each year so I am extremely pale when we go. To say I was skeptical of this product would be an understatement. I had been using a very popular natural sunscreen with zinc oxide and even though it prevented most sunburns, it dried my skin out so much that I would start to peel while washing it off so I decided Sun Shield was worth a try. I used it every single day and never burned! I had the best tan I have ever had, zero redness and zero peeling. By day three I was confident enough to use it on my kids and even with their fair skin, no one burned. I even used it as a moisturizer on days we weren’t going to be in the sun enough to warrant the use of sun screen.
    I don’t think I would call it greasy, maybe a little oily, but it sinks in fast and makes your skin feel so soft. I cannot say enough good things about this product. I would love to see it come in some kind of container with a screw on lid though. I had a hard time keeping the lid completely closed on it so I kept it inside a ziploc bag in my beach bag.

    I have fair skin. I used Sun Shield at the beach, and it worked like a charm. I didn’t get sun burned. My skin felt soft and moisturized when I got out of the sun. I will definitely use this on my baby next year.

    I have been using it with different essential oils as a bit of a moisturizer for my 63 year old skin. I was surprised when more then one person asked me if I had some sun and that my skin has just a touch of color. So that is nice. I do not like make up…gets into my crinkles. I really try to stay out of the sun in the middle of the day, so I know the different oils in Sun Shield add a bit of tint.
