Inspired by natives from this beautiful island of Indonesia, Bali Bloc SPF 30 was created in response to customer requests that we offer a Very Water Resistant tinted sunscreen in a stick format. Bali Bloc is specifically optimized for people who participate in active aquatic sports such as surfing, kite boarding, whitewater, waterparks, snorkeling/SCUBA, and complies with the 80 Minute Immersion Very Water Resistant standard (click for the testing report). Bali Bloc is made with just four ingredients; which are 100% certified organic excluding the zinc oxide!
The formula is mocha tinted, due to the presence of raw certified organic cocoa powder, and has a delicious chocolate-coconut scent.
Bali Bloc is healthy, highly effective and safe for children and adults of all ages.
Bali Bloc is free of common allergens. It’s soy-free, gluten-free, corn-free and dairy-free. Please see the Ingredients tab above for a complete list of ingredients in the product.

The average individual particle size of the Zinc Oxide USP we use is 0.260 micron (260nm) with Standard Deviation of 0.012 micron (12nm). This means that there are statistically zero particles smaller than 100nm, the cutoff for the nano classification. Most nano sunscreens on the market have particle sizes in the range of 10-20nm.
*Please note: the certified organic cocoa powder present in Bali Bloc may stain clothing.

Bali Bloc is an effective, healthy and safe sunscreen for your entire family. You can use it daily and be confident that it’s free of harmful petrochemicals that are known to bioaccumulate.
Zinc oxide is a better sunscreen active ingredient than titanium dioxide and the only one Kabana uses for the following reasons:
- Zinc oxide the most effective UV absorber across the entire UVA and UVB spectrum.
- Zinc oxide is made from the critical mineral nutrient zinc whereas titanium is a metal that has no biological use in our bodies and poorly defined long term exposure risks. You will find zinc in your multivitamin if you take one, but certainly not titanium.
- Zinc oxide holds tight to its electrons when it absorbs UV energy and limits the creation of free radicals that do damage to your cells and increase the risk of skin cancer.
- Zinc oxide is the sole sunscreen active ingredient approved for use on children by FDA
The zinc oxide Kabana uses is non-nano, and not-micronized; there are zero zinc oxide nanoparticles in our formulas.
