While Zoca Lotion does not yet have organic certification, a majority of our ingredients are USDA certified organic. We only use plant-derived cold-pressed oils and organic sustainable beeswax as our base ingredients. We currently only use non-nanoparticle zinc oxide as the active ingredient in our sunscreens as it is the safest option available.

What makes your "Sustainable Raw Ingredients" better than the conventional ingredients? If your sustainable raw ingredients are certified, please list all certifications (e.g. Ecocert, ECOCERT NATURAL DETERGENT, NATRUE).

All the oils we use are cold-pressed and plant derived. A majority of these oils are USDA certified organic and we use ingredients that are fair trade certified by Fair for Life whenever applicable. Our beeswax is USDA certified organic and Non-GMO verified and sourced responsibly in the United States. We only use natural, Non-GMO verified vitamin E oil.
