Local Company Introduces Natural Sunscreen

Australian Gold Sun Care, headquartered in Indianapolis, released a new botanical line this past spring, featuring sunscreens free of chemicals and fortified with native Australian botanicals.

Many natural sunscreens tend to have greasy and whitening effects, and it was Australian Gold’s goal to offer a natural sunscreen line that could be rubbed in instantly and provide a lightweight, powder-dry feel.

The formula uses antioxidant-rich and Australian botanical ingredients such as eucalyptus to calm, reinvigorate and oxygenate the skin, protein- packed red algae to nourish with vitamin A and amino acids, and kakadu plum which contains high levels of vitamin C to help protect against free radical damage.

The line includes sunscreen lotion for the body and face, and natural sprays with SPFs of 30 and 50. All formulations are hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. The protection defends against both UVA/UVB rays with eco-conscious ingredients free from parabens, phthalates, PABA, petrolatum, sulfates, dyes and oils. Designed to use as few materials as possible and reduce potential waste, all products are packaged in recyclable containers.

Location: 8001 Woodland Dr., Indianapolis. For more information, call 800-633-0069 or visit
