Found a recipe for homemade sunscreen at HealSoaz.org: "Obtain USP grade titanium oxide or zinc oxide (available from compounding pharmacies), almond oil (or other good oil) and beeswax. Use 1 cup oil to 1 oz beeswax and 1-2 Tablespoons zinc or titanium oxide. Heat the oil just enough to melt the wax (grate or chop it first), then add the titanium or zinc oxide." Looks simple and relatively nontoxic; if I can get the ingredients in time, I'll try it. I wanna be able to walk around nekkid at Burning Man! By the way, that website has lots of good tips, very anticonsumerism and smart!
