Frequently Asked Questions

What ingredients are used in Muskoka Mud?

We chose our natural ingredients to maximize sun protection while also moisturizing your skin and smelling great.  Our organic ingredients include: coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, bees wax, tocopherol (vitamin E), jojoba oil and cocao powder.  Our zinc oxide powder (325nm) is 100% natural and sourced in Canada.

My skin is sensitive, is your product hypoallergenic?

The most common skin irritants are fragrances and preservatives - which we do not use in our products!  All of our organic ingredients score "1", and zinc oxide powder scores "2" on the Environmental Working Group (EWG) site which researches and evaluates ingredients linked to cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity, allergies and immunotoxicity. Scores range from 1-10, with 1 and 2 being the best and considered "low hazard".  See 

 What is the SPF of Muskoka Mud?

Muskoka Mud is SPF 30.  As with all sunscreens, you should reapply after 1-2 hours and with more frequency if you are in and out of the water.  When applying, ensure that you have a thick layer to provide optimal coverage.  Sunscreen should blend in with skin when rubbed in.

What are the best times to use Muskoka Mud?

Muskoka mud is great for athletes, water-sports enthusiasts, surfers and natural product evangelists.  Or really anyone who wants great sun protection without all the harmful chemicals.  If you like the smell of chocolate - you'll like Muskoka Mud too!  Play beach volleyball, run, cycle, wake surf, boat, or just love spending time in the sun?  This product is for you!
