To achieve flawless coverage, pat a small amount onto a pre-moistened face and blend well for even coverage.

This product can be added to daily moisturizer in winter when less SPF is needed. NOTE: IF YOU MIX FACE CRÈME DAY WITH MOISTURIZER THE SPF WILL BE REDUCED.

Light Shade: for most Caucasian skin tones except, perhaps, if one is super fair.
World Shade: for everybody else (mid-hi melanin skin tones). Works well for people from South America, South East Asia, light African, and Mediterranean skin tones.
Dark Shade:
for dark and African skin tones.

Block the sun’s UVA/UVB rays with the physical barrier properties of Mineral SPF 30 non-nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide. Protect skin with this plant-based nourishing formula enriched by Green Tea Extract for added anti-oxidant benefits. Halt the signs of aging with anti-stress peptide, Hexapeptide -48 HCL (from Spinach), which treats expression lines. Stimulate the vital functions of mature skin with Wild Yam Extract, a multi-active phytosterol complex which helps to fight the loss of collagen.

Our Face Crème Day line will also be your-take along for those who take to the slopes in winter. This is an incredibly impressive moisturizer, foundation and a mineral zinc oxide sunscreen in one.  Also perfect for golfers.

Unscented. Plant-based, naturally derived ingredients.
Your skin personalized.  

An outside FDA compliant laboratory tested the Face Crème Day using an anonymous panel of 50 people and the results show the product to be a Non-Primary Irritant and Non-Primary Sensitizer to the skin; Dermatologist Tested.  The test performed was an RIPT (Repeat Insult Patch Test).

Why I created this.

If we buy a product that does many things, then we buy less, consume less and throw away less.  Our Jao Brand Face Crème Day satisfies many needs. Reach for it to moisturize, protect, heal, tint and balance skin tone. And it delivers all this without synthetic ingredients.

Here is how:

Formulated with 22% non-nano uncoated, large particle Zinc Oxide. The benefits of Zinc Oxide are well documented. It provides broad spectrum sun protection and prevents burns.

    Because of this high percentage of zinc, our product may appear a bit thick. Apply to fingertips and spread with a bit of a pat across the facial skin. You can also mix it in with your regular moisturizer, HOWEVER if you do, the SPF factor will be lowered. It does spread easier on the face if a light oil or moisturizer is applied first or if skin is slightly damp with water.  

    After you begin using this product you will notice how soft and nourished your skin will feel. I live at the beach in summer, and I love the sun. Face Crème Day has really saved my face. My skin looks and feels great. I hope it will do the same for you.

    The Perfect Shade

    A common mistake many people make is matching foundation to the back of the hand. This is a huge no-no because typically, the back of your hand is a lot darker than the skin on your face. Instead, always color match your foundation to your neck or your jawline. This trick will ensure a closer color match and give you a much better, more natural result. 

    Play it safe and choose a foundation that is one shade lighter than your skin tone—you can always add depth with bronzer. If that still doesn’t work, try custom mixing two shades together to make your perfect foundation. This is the #1 trick used by MUAs to color match clients because it gives the makeup artist more control to create the perfect shade.

    How To Use

    To achieve flawless coverage, pat a small amount onto a pre-moistened face and blend well for even coverage.

    Mineral Zinc sunscreens will rub off and need to be re-applied every 2 hours. Be smart in the sun. Wear a hat, find shade. And don’t stay out in direct sun when the rays are strongest between 12-4!

    This product can be added to daily moisturizer in winter when less SPF is needed. NOTE: IF YOU MIX FACE CRÈME DAY WITH MOISTURIZER THE SPF WILL BE REDUCED.

    Blend with the Sunbeam Illuminator to add that sun kissed glow and warmth.


    jao face creme sunbeam illuminator hermes hippie

    "A few years ago on the blog, I had raved about the newly released Jao Brand Face Crème. At a time when finding green beauty creams was a fairly Herculean task, the Crème was a rich, indulgent treat that gave all of the sensory delights of a conventional cream moisturizer and kept my skin soft and supple even in the dead of winter.

    Which is why I was thrilled when Jao Brand released a tinted SPF version of the Crème along with a sun-protecting Sunbeam Illuminator: a shimmering, golden SPF cream packed with real 24k gold. I bought both and have been wearing them fairly consistently for the last couple of weeks and, not surprisingly, I am in love.

    The tinted Day Crème is ideal for those of you who love a heavy coverage foundation. It’s thick and rich (though not at all greasy nor pore-clogging) and provides much more coverage than my other tinted SPFs. I prefer my coverage to be virtually non-existent, so it took me a moment to adjust to the much heavier coverage of the Crème, but I think that wearers of traditional foundation will find it to be just right.

    But when the Crème really shines (pun intended) is when I mix it with the Illuminator. You really only need the tiniest dab of the latter: it’s so shimmery that using too much can leave you looking a little like the Tin Man. A drop mixed in with the Crème, however, will give a radiant glow and a beautifully even complexion. The versatile Illuminator can also be used as a cream highlighter and, mixed with Jao’s delicious Goe body balm, will give you perfectly shimmering limbs.

    One more thing worth noting: green beauty has a bit of a problem with catering to a wide range of skin tones. I’m hugely impressed that Day Crème comes in three shades: Light (Caucasian tones), World Shade (mid-to-high melanin tones) and Dark (dark and African tones). I know that creating dark shades in a physical SPF can’t have been easy and I’d love to hear about people’s experience with the two darker shades.

    I love talking about Jao Brand because it’s such a wonderful, thoughtful brand and a green beauty pioneer, yet it seems to fly under the radar. As for the new SPFs, I think they’ll become your new, year-round BFFs."

    - The Hermes Hippie


    How pigmented is this product?

    This product is a highly-pigmented moisturizer. Non-nano uncoated Zinc Oxide and Iron Oxides are the color agent in this product. They are safe pigments, with no known adverse effects.  Please Note: We use minerals (iron oxides) to tint our 5-in-1 face sunscreens instead of synthetic F, D & C dyes. As such, each batch varies in color.

    Will this product take place of my foundation or will it shear out?

    When wearing this product applying a foundation is not needed as the Face Crème Day is formulated with 22% Zinc Oxide which is white, and then colored with iron oxides. The mixture of the two gives as full a coverage as you want. 

    Do I need to apply SPF when wearing this product?

    It is always important to apply an SPF to the skin to protect it from the sun’s UVA/UVB rays. With that being said, applying an SPF is not needed when wearing this product. This is because the Face Crème Day already works to block the sun’s UVA/UVB rays with the physical barrier properties of Mineral SPF 30 non-nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide. Note: Layering two SPF does not add up to a higher level of protection, you should always aim for a higher SPF rather than a lower one to be sun safe.

    What shade will work best for my skin tone?

    Everyone has a different skin tone which makes them unique and beautiful. The amazing feature of the Face Crème Day is that you can wear one shade on its own or you can mix and match the colors to find your own perfect shade. (This is the #1 trick used by MUAs to color match clients.)

    What is the formulation of the Face Crème Day and how does it wear on the skin?

    This product is an ultra luxurious moisturizer that will definitely leave the skin soft and supple. Upon application, the formulation of this product may seem heavy this is because it is very difficult to get a stable product when making a Zinc Oxide moisturizer with NO SYNTHETIC emulsifiers (no silicones either). However once rubbed into the skin you will feel like your not wearing anything. This formulation makes it suitable for hitting the slopes in winter as you will most likely not need an additional moisturizer.

    What is the finish of the Face Crème Day?

    This tinted moisturizer provides flawless coverage, a natural finish, and protection with Mineral SPF 30 non-nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide.  

    Can I apply a powder on top of this product?

    Yes you can apply a powder on top of this product, applying it really just depends on the desired outcome. Adding powder on top of liquid products tends to help lock the products in place and help prevent an oily and shiny look. People with oily skin can add a powder to create a more matte finish. 

    Is it Reef Safe? 

    Our Face Crème Day is Reef Safe as we have sourced large particle uncoated Non-Nano Zinc Oxide at 22%. [If your sunscreen is zinc oxide with nano sized particles it is not reef safe. Per the New York Times, any particles smaller than 100 nanometers can be consumed by coral.]

    Will this product cause flashback in photos?

    Most products containing SPF have the potential to cause flashback especially products containing Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. This happens because Zinc Oxide is a white mineral powder and works by reflecting sun rays, therefore, white tends to reflect during flash photography. Keep this in mind when taking pictures with flash photography.  

    Can I mix Face Crème Day and Sunbeam Illuminator with other products containing oil?

    Our Face Creme Day and Sunbeam Illuminator will not break down with oils. You can mix them into any product with oil to thin them and spread them out, HOWEVER, this will LOWER the SPF rating!
