In this article Stocksmetic team wants to explain how to create some sun cosmetics and which packaging use for each one. For this summer beauty routine we have to follow four simple steps: 

1) Prepare the skin: coconut and zinc oxide sun cream

For having an healthy tanning, first of all, we need to start from proper exposure to the sun. The perfect ally to protect our skin from solar radiation is zinc oxide, which reflects UVA and UVB rays and creates a natural sunscreen. For create an homemade sunscream we need:

  • 5 spoonfuls of zinc oxide
  • 50 ml of coconut oil
  • 1 spoonful of beeswax
  • 3 teaspoons of aloe vera gel
  • half a glass of water
  • 10 drops of coconut extract.

Let's melt in a bain-marie the coconut oil with beeswax, remove from heat and add the coconut extract. Pour the compost into a container and add the zinc oxide powder. In the meantime, warm the water and the aloe vera gel, blend them and add to the previous mix. The suncream is ready! You should now store it in a refrigerator to preserve its natural properties. The product can be applied different times during the day before the sunbathing. The ideal packaging for this sunscreen is the 250 ml Heavy Plastic Bottle. Like with all the Stocksmetic cosmetic bottles, you can choose for your container different accessories from a wide range, such as the Cream Pump or the Girotondo Cap.  

2) Exfoliate: aloe vera, shea butter and brown sugar scrub

Although there are a lot of prejudices, scrub is one of the best allies for preserve your suntan. A regular exfoliation, in fact, helps to eliminate dead cells, keeping the skin healthy and glowing. Using the scrub a long-lasting and uniform tan can be achieved. A good exfoliating scrub is made of aloe vera and shea butter. You can prepare it simply mixing:

  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 spoonful of aloe vera gel
  • 2 tablespoons of shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon of honey.

The perfect way to use this scrub is apply it in the shower. After moistening the skin, apply it all over the body and massage with circular movements. For even more efficient treatment, you can use an exfoliating glove to deeply cleanse the skin. After few minutes is possible rinse the skin with warm water and dry it lightly. Shea butter and aloe vera help to maintain the proper hydration and leave your skin soft and revitalized. To preserve its specific and beneficial properties, this natural scrub needs a specific container. Among the Stocksmetic cosmetic bottles, we suggest you the 200 ml Thalasso Plastic Jar with the practical hermetic seal.

3)  Moisturize: hydrating body cream with almond oil, coconut and vitamin E

  • tablespoons of coconut oil
  • tablespoons of shea butter or cocoa butter
  • 50 grams of almond oil
  • 25 grams of beeswax
  • 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil

4) Eat healthy: nutritional supplements for a perfect skin


Taking food supplements with vitamins and antioxidants can help you to mantain a luminous, tanned and healthy skin throughout the year. These products, together with a proper nutrition, contributes to enhance the natural brilliance of the tanning and prevents the signs of aging.
