"We surf almost every day using only Honey Shield for sun protection."



Honey Shield will harden slightly in cold weather and might become difficult to apply. We can make it softer but then it will not stick so well in turbulent water.

Luckily there is a trick:When your Honey Shield becomes hard in the cold, apply some pressure to the surface with your index finger while gently making small circular movements. The heat of your finger along with the pressure will quickly soften the Honey Shield leaving a soft paste on your finger that will be easy to apply.

You can also leave the Honey Shield jar on your car's dashboard to soften while driving to the surf spot. 

Visual Test

Honey Shield forms a physical barrier between your skin and the sun. If you cannot see your skin through the Honey Shield, it means you are protected.

Honey Shield is best removed by wiping with a coarse, dry towel. We suggest dedicating a small hand towel for this. Once it is covered with Honey Shield, just chuck it in the wash with the rest of your clothing. Honey Shield does not stain so you don't have to worry about it ruining your towels or clothes.


Another special quality of Honey Shield is that you can apply it on small cuts and grazes when you go into the water. Honey is a natural disinfectant and helps keep the baddies out. However, cleaning the wound properly before you apply Honey Shield is advised since you don't want to seal the bad stuff in.


Honey Shield comes in a high quality jar. Once empty you can use it for storage, e.g. Needle and thread for wetsuit repairs. If you have no need for it, please recycle.
