From the Founders

There are so many key variables when it comes to a good organic sunscreen: texture, the smell, even the spreadability of it. We factored all of that in when we created our Essential SPF to give customers the best sunscreen experience.

Key Ingredients:

Non-GMO Red Raspberry Seed Oil 
Locally sourced and high in antioxidants

Non-GMO French Plum Oil 
Oleic Acid is highly moisturizing, lightweight and good for dry skin 

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil 
Linolelic fatty acid is great for skin that doesn’t retain moisture

Essential SPF

As someone with fair skin, I have to use SPF everyday. I love the Essential SPF because it is mineral-based and not chemical. Also, my skin tends to be dry and the SPF in conjunction with the Essential Serum really helps to keep my skin hydrated as well as protected from the sun.

Best Stuff Ever!

I love this as a moisturizing face oil and SPF in one. It works great on dry, sensitive and even combination skin - no need for another moisturizer underneath. Even my husband uses this daily. It works great under makeup, has simple and effective ingredients and smells lovely from the natural plum and raspberry oils. I hope it never changes!

Still my go-to sunscreen

Because I am a product junkie I try other sunscreens from time to time but I always come back to the Kari Gran Essential SPF. It is an elegant formula with great protection. I am very fair with very dry skin and it is perfect for me as it is quite moisturizing. Smells great and leaves a subtle luminous sheen. My only (very minor in context) complaint is that it takes a lot of shaking to blend the contents of a new bottle. Apart from that, it is perfection.
