As some of you may already know, I started Ao Organics after becoming a new mother. Being an ocean-loving family, we spend most of our family days at the beach, playing under the sun all day long! Because of this, sunscreen has always been a staple in our beach bag.
When I started to learn how toxic the sunscreens we were using were, with their harmful ingredients and chemicals, we completely stopped using them. However, at the time, it was challenging to find a brand we could trust that was 100% organic in stores. That's when I stepped into my kitchen and started making my own.
Four years later, and we've expanded our line of products since our days of just churning out reef-safe sunscreens. Here are mine and Shannele's four must-have items in our beach bag!
