Why do you always run out of sunscreens?
We are so pleased that our sunscreens are so popular with Canadians! Every year sales are well beyond our expectations. We’ve developed our sunscreens using the safe mineral Zinc Oxide and titanium dioxide as the active ingredients, and infusing antioxidant Canadian-grown raspberry extract to ensure ultimate moisturization. As always, our products are 100% natural, gluten-free, non-nano, non-GMO, biodegradable and reef friendly!
Being a small family-owned company, we must be very clever in our planning. When we organize our production, we try to anticipate the demand because it can fluctuate according to weather and many other factors. Our ingredients and packaging must be ordered several months in advance. As you know, we only use ingredients certified by Ecocert such as zinc oxide. These can take up to 4 months for delivery because there are very few suppliers that meet the criteria of our certification. The majority of distributors sell a zinc oxide in nanoparticles which is contraindicated according to Ecocert standards.
We are really saddened that we can not supply the demand. We manufacture our sunscreens according to last year’s sales. For the past two years we have doubled our production according to sales but still, it is not enough.
We promise to double our production in order to meet the ever-increasing demand.
Next year we are committed to offering our SPF 40 sunscreen for children and adults throughout the year. Until then visit please your favorite natural health food store.
Alain Ménard, microbiologist, co-founded The Green Beaver Company with biochemist Karen Clark. They were both appalled by the amount of chemicals found in kid’s shampoos, bubble baths and other products. With their new family in mind, they decided to do something about it. They left the pharmaceutical and pesticide industry behind to create healthier natural products. Alain regularly gives seminars on the potential health risks and environmental hazards associated with the chemicals found in everyday personal care products.
