  • 2 x Faces / 30% Zinc / 50 ml

Meet our long awaited organic sun lotion! "Cover Me Coco" was my first product I made, and has been tested by babes of all ages around the world the past 2 years! It's the perfect lotion to protect against long days in the sun, and uses a combination of pure organic wax, butters, oils, and zinc oxide to form a physical barrier against UV rays. It is also deeply nourishing and moisturizing to keep your skin soft and smooth and hydrated, even after long days in the sun and sea. Everyone that has used our sunscreen swears by it and says that they never experienced burns, while others they were with that did not use it did get sunburns, ouch! 100% chemical free, and free of oils and essential oils that oxidize in the sun! This sunscreen is strong enough to protect the fairest of them all from the sun, yet gentle and safe enough for babies and all the ocean life. We've got you covered!

**We decided to forgo FDA testing because we did not want to be required to put on the FDA warning label, which goes against everything I stands for when it comes to health. I never want to compromise on my products, as my whole line was born to ensure the health and safety of my loved ones. We LOVE the sun, we NEED the sun! Limited daily sun exposure, during high noon when UVB rays are strongest (the exact time sunscreen bottles, both mineral and chemical alike, tell you to avoid) is the BEST source for our bodies to make vitamin D, an essential vitamin that is linked to boosting immune systems and can even play a vital role in preventing cancer. So our sun lotion throws caution to the wind, while also protecting us from burns, which are harmful! And of course, it comes in a non leaching glass jar, because even the purest of ingredients become filled with harmful cancer and hormone disrupting linked ingredients when stored in plastic. 

Because our sun lotion is not FDA approved, we cannot make any SPF claims, however, we use non nano zinc oxide to form a physical barrier on your skin against UVA and UVB rays. The percentage of zinc oxide typically correlates to the SPF rating. We have had babies, children, and adults use our sun lotion safely, all day in the sun, with no sunburns!

Available in two options. Both are water resistant, but our active formulation is extra water resistant, formulated with extra beeswax and coco butter for long workouts in the sun, or long days of swimming! Our faces formulation is also water resistant and provides protection during activity and swimming, but may want to be reapplied more often. It does not contain any coconut oil or coco butter, which can clog pores in some individuals, and is therefore recommended for faces, but can also be used on your whole body if you would like a lighter, more easily spreadable formula for day to day use!

We also differ from most organic and mineral based sunscreens, in that we use only saturated oils in our sun lotion, to prevent long term skin aging from oxidizing oils. Most plant and seed oils, while rich in nutrients and even linked to UV protection, do oxidize in the sun, and oxidation can cause free radical damage to your skin, leading to wrinkles and sun spots. Plant and seed oils are recommended to be stored in dark jars out of heat and away from light, so even if you stored your sunscreens in these conditions, once applied and out in the sun, they will begin oxidizing on your skin. Saturated fats, like coconut oil, shea and coco butter, and even jojoba are stable under heat and light, so you don't have to worry about causing long term free radical damage to your skin with our sun lotion! This is also the reason we do not use essential oils currently to scent our sunscreen, and instead use coconut pulp, as essential oils can oxidize quickly in the sun and air. Vanilla has many healing properties as well, is more heat stable, and gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skin types.

50 ml glass jar 

We recommend getting daily Vitamin D exposure for 10-20 minutes depending on your skin type (shorter periods the lighter skin you are) as we do not recommend getting sunburned! After getting your essential UVB rays, apply "Cover Me Coco" liberally to all exposed areas, and reapply every couple hours or as needed. This lotion can harden in cooler temps and will melt slightly in water temps- if it has hardened simply rub between palms to melt, then apply! Our water sport formula uses extra beeswax to stay on during water activities or through sweat, and both may show a slightly to highly visible white film on your skin. We recommend layering until slightly visible, especially on children, to have confidence that you know you are protected! Re-apply after swimming or excess sweating. A little goes a long way, so start out with a small amount and keep layering until you reach desired coverage! One jar will last several months to a year depending on usage! This glass jar of organic sun lotion is travel size and will get you through all your travels around the world, or through that long day of swimming lessons with all the kiddos. ;)

Our Story

Open tab

Hello, I'm Coco, and this is me and my family.


I am the founder, owner, and formulator of Reclamation Organics, formerly Cocos Organics. I’m a wild woman, a divine feminine being, a lover to my partner, a bonus momma to two beautiful girls, and a business owner with a vision to build sustainable commerce that does good FOR YOU, FOR YOUR FAMILY, FOR THE FARMERS, FOR THE ANIMALS, FOR THE EARTH! I believe we can rise above being consumers, and be conscious creators through where we invest our energy and our money.

We are a small, family owned business, run out of our basement and garage (converted to a clean kitchen and our own shipping space) and we have a mission to create amazing and sustainable body and home care lines, and to create a consciously curated shop of goods from artisans and families around the world. What began as a line of 6 organic, results driven, handmade, organic body care products created 5 years ago by Coco for her family and friends, and then turned into a expanding line of products after a successful online launch and devout users who stayed with us after a year long closure due to trademark disputes, has now expanded yet again to include curated items from fair trade, zero waste, & consciously crafted good: GOOD FOR YOU, FOR YOUR FAMILY, FOR THE FARMERS, FOR THE ANIMALS, AND FOR THE EARTH. We are bringing in items from over 20+small ethically and socially responsible businesses, along with my line, and I am feeling so good about the direction we are headed. This has all been made possible with the monetary, emotional, and physical help and support of my parents, siblings, friends, and amazing employees along the way, and now with the support and inspiration of my beloved partner and daughters.

We believe in being conscious creators with our purchases, rather than consumptive consumers, and we invite you to join us on this mission.

About my body care line:

Cocos Organics was created after I began searching for organic, non toxic skincare, and couldn't find anything that met my criteria: which was 100% organic, synthetic and questionable ingredients free (or in other words being able to read and understand all the ingredients on a label, am I right?!), ethically sourced ingredients, and stored in nontoxic containers. Let's be honest, there are some great products out there with great ingredients, but they are usually stored in plastic, or vice versa- products with questionable ingredients stored in glass... My mission to find 100% organic, simple products with the best ingredients for healthy skin, stored in glass, seemed impossible. I wasn't comfortable settling for a great product stored in plastic. Plastics leach, and even BPA free plastics contain many other untested chemicals, which may be worse than BPA. Plastics are filled with hormone disrupting and cancer linked chemicals, which leach into the product, and then get slathered on your body and absorbed into your body. So Coco Organics was born, and has now been renamed “Reclamation Organics”. It “reclaims”  skincare and labels, seeking to set a new standard for skincare: organic and pesticide/synthetic/chemical free, made with luxurious raw and extra virgin cold pressed ethically sourced ingredients, and stored in glass. We not only source the best ingredients, with each product being hand made in small batches at low temperatures to preserve the vital nutrients in the unrefined and raw ingredients... we also use extra thick ultraviolet glass jars (like the Egyptians used) to preserve the final product, use compostable labels, have our own in house jar & composting recycle program, and ship everything zero waste.

Sustainable Packaging

Open tab

 

Here at Reclamation Organics our passion is in more than the product, it is also in the entire process. We believe businesses have a responsibility to to be ethical and leave as small a footprint as possible. As we have grown, we have constantly looked ahead to find more innovative ways to thoughtfully design our business to make a positive impact and be sustainable from start to finish. We call this our Clean Green Loop. It starts with the farmers and ends with getting the product to you. There is a lot in between!

 

Our Jars

We use ultraviolet glass jars and have our own recycling program. We use glass so that there is no leaching of plastic, and the jars can be used forever. The Miron Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part.
At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products. You can learn more about our jars here

 

Our Labels

 

We have spent 3 months searching for labels that met our standard and we could feel good about using. We care about using eco-friendly packaging and after polling from you, our customers, we chose to use PURE Labels for our 100% compostable labels made by Elevate Packaging. The labels we are using are sourced from sustainably sourced pulp. We love our planet and know that each sustainable packaging choice we make matters! When you send in your jars to be sanitized and reused, we will first try to reuse the labels- if the jar needs to be used for a different product, or the label has started deteriorating, we will remove and compost ourselves in our garden at the shop!  We are so so excited about this! 

 

 Our Mailers

We currently use Ecoenclose recycled padded mailers. There is just no denying the earthy appeal of 100% Recycled Padded Mailers. These bad boys scream, “EARTH MATTERS!”Recovered newspaper is matted into a layer of cushioning -- a pillow of paper of sorts -- and then sandwiched between two solid layers of recycled kraft paper. The result is one heck of an irrefutably eco-friendly cushioned mailer.

We are looking into use reusable mailers from Limeloop and will gradually been switching over when we use up all of our recycled mailers.
