Goodbye OUCH Sun Balm

Sun Balm meets the ASNZ 2604:2012 sunscreen standard, which includes broad spectrum coverage. It is highly water resistant, which means it doesn’t run into eyes and will keep you protected even when you are in the water.

The anhydrous (no water) balm is a soothing, antioxidant-rich formula that smells gently of Peppermint, Cocoa Butter and Coconut oils. The rich organic oils and butters give Sun Balm variations in texture and help it melt smoothly and evenly on your skin.

These are all super handy sizes for outdoors. And it goes a remarkably long way. It can be used on lips, faces and hands every day for weeks!

    Really love this product but why so expensive it’s sad really. I mean how far is an 80g going to get you when u should be putting on all bare skin. I hope to see goodbye ouch bring out a big bottle at an affordable price. Thanks would give it 5/5 if it was cheaper.

      Hi Rebekah, thank you for taking a moment to feedback. Sun Balm IS a very different product to most sunscreens in the world. Aside from being certified natural, it is made with no water, which means it is very high performance, and a little goes further. And without water, it’s also a much more expensive product to make. When we first brought our formulation to the manufacturer, they said this is a $70 tube of sunscreen. We said, yes, and we’re going to sell it as inexpensively as possible because we want it to be accessible. One of our key messages around Sun Balm is, “don’t ask a sunscreen to do what clothes can do better”. When you have a sunscreen that serves you beautifully but that you see as something precious, you will naturally take care of your skin more carefully with clothing. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Becky Cashman – Founder and Product Maker

    I discovered this sun balm while vacationing on Northland this past March. Immediately, I LOVED how it felt on my face. Being 64 yrs old, I need a very creamy sunblock to put under my foundation every day. I smooth this over my face, neck, chest, backs of hands and any other part exposed to the sun. It does have a bit of a “greasy” consistency, but that is absorbed in a few minutes. I would say the smell is almost chocolatey combined with coconut – much better than the chemical odor of typical sunscreens. On top of which, I now break out in a rash when using any of the chemical sunscreens, so I can no longer use them. By contrast, Goodbye OUCH hydrates my skin even as it protects it from sunburn. I’ve had this on my arms & face and been in the sun all day without ever burning. Now that I’m back in the USA, I will continue to order this product online – it is simply THE BEST facial sunscreen out there for my sensitive, dry skin.

    Love everything about this product! I have very fair skin and also am a keen ocean swimmer so spend a lot of time in the sun. I try to only put natural ingredients on my skin and have tried so many different sunscreens, sometimes it is hard to know what is really in your sunscreen and also if it is going to actually work. But this sun balm does! Tried and tested for a 7 hour event when I was in and out of the water and I reapplied after 4 hours and absolutely no sunburn. I was so nervous going in as it is a long time to be out in the elements but so pleased with the result. It not only works but it also smells great and rubs into your skin really nicely.
    Thank you for creating this beautiful product. – Sarah

    I’ve been looking for this for years! Thank you for bringing this wonder product to the market. Finally, a naturally based product that is good for me and the environment and actually works. I do a lot of work that involves being in the ocean so it is really important to have a sunscreen that doesn’t impact these fragile environments. I have tested this in the strong New Zealand sun and in the Pacific and it’s always provided me with the sun protection I need. Thank you Good Bye team for this fantastic sun balm, I can’t recommend it highly enough!

You want to do right by the ocean AND your skin. Our certified natural sunscreen helps you do just that.

Sun Gratitude Skin Respect is an ethos that recognises that the Sun is the giver of Life. We need the sun! We just have to take care of ourselves when we are outdoors. We recommend to not ask sunscreen to do what clothing and a hat do. Use Sun Balm in the high sun hours, reapplying every 2 hours. Sun Balm is high performance sun protection, it is certified natural and a treat to use.
