it’s here! *cocokind daily SPF sunscreen*

For the past few years, cocokind’s most frequently requested product has remained the same: sunscreen. Well, the wait is finally over! We’re excited to introduce you to daily SPF, our clean, lightweight mineral sunscreen. 

Our SPF 32 formula is unique in that it helps defend skin against more than just the sun. daily SPF uses non-nano zinc oxide to block UV rays from reaching the skin, thus helping prevent sunburn and skin damage caused by sun exposure. Our formula also uses blue phytoplankton and microalgae to shield skin from the effects of blue light and pollution, while rice starch absorbs excess sebum, giving our formula a soft, natural-looking finish. 

Basically, our formula helps protect against sunburn, skin damage, early aging, and environmental stress, while also delivering a natural-looking finish with a lightweight, non-greasy feel. It also layers seamlessly under makeup (if you wear any)!

how do I use it? 

Use daily SPF as the last step in your skincare routine after moisturizing but before makeup! Apply generously 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply at least every 2 hours.

What percent of the total oils and fats are from sunflower seed oil? As a polyunsaturated fatty acid, I’m concerned exposure to sunlight would cause the sunflower seed oil to oxidize on the skin, causing skin damage.


Hi, any idea when we’ll be able to buy Cocokind in the UK?


@Morgan – hi! Like all of our products, our SPF was formulated to be gentle and safe. However, if your wife is expecting, we recommend showing the ingredients list to her doctor to confirm safety for her specifically : )

@Leanne – zinc oxide is technically reef safe but this sunscreen is not formulated for use in water!

William - this formula is not 100% organic, but we're happy to answer any questions about the formula if you email!


Is the sunscreen reef safe?

Leanne Werner

Are the ingredients 100% organic/derived from organic ingredients, non chimical, non-harmful and also safe for brown melanated skin?
( I’ve never had a problem when it came to sunburns and stuff + never used sunscreen as far as I can remember. I’m trying to find a purely naturally derived/non synthetic/non chemical sunscreen, hopefully this one will be it. )
