I stumbled across A Drop in the Ocean on my quest to reduce our family's plastic use. I have a small family and live in a rural area with only a few big box stores and zero plastic recycling options. Finding plastic free items locally can be a challenge. I was thrilled to find a shop in my home state that would reuse returned glass and aluminum bottles. I'm a repeat customer as the products are excellent and the shop owner makes it super simple to return our used bottles by mail.
Ocean-Friendly SPF 30 Sunscreen (Lavender + Eucalyptus)
Absolutely LOVE this sunscreen. A little bit goes a long way and the small glass container has lasted me all summer long. It smells fabulous and rubs in easily. Great feeling to get that sun protection while also feeling good about what I'm rubbing into my skin. Highly recommend!
Seriously - The Best Sunscreen
I love this stuff! I use it daily - First of all - it smells amazing. You'd never know you are wearing sunscreen. It goes on easily, smoothly, and actually feels really moisturizing! I'm sold for life!
this stuff makes me look forward to applying sunscreen, which is great because it's very sunny where I live. the consistency is also dreamy. thanks ADITO for another sustainable swap!
I like to feel like a sunscreen is really protecting my skin, and this one does. It is a little thick, in that the white streaks need to be blended in, but that's ok with me if I prevent a burn!
It's super-runny. And when I shake the bottle, it leaks out the cap/pump and sprays everywhere. And being a pump, I can't take it traveling. I like the ingredients, but I'm not sure I'd buy it again unless they change the bottle.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your concerns about our sunscreen! I know we've chatted about this via email, but I wanted to update here too that our newest batch of sunscreen is definitely thicker and shouldn't have this problem. I've also spoken with our vendor about this issue and she's going to keep this in mind for future batches to ensure it's not as thin as the batch before. Thank you again for sharing your concerns!
