Last year I put coconut oil on. It worked great for tanning. No burn either. This year, I've been low on coconut oil but still got a great tan.
Cillikat suggested raw honey awhile ago, so if we have to deal with a burn this year I'll try that.
We use zinc oxide. We order it from the CVS pharmacist. I don't really know if it's considered primal or not though. I think the most primal thing would be to wear clothes that would protect you from the sun.
For sun burns, you can use the zinc oxide again (after all it is just diaper rash creme), coconut oil or I use my breast milk since it's available.
So it is safe to get coconut oiled up and sit out in the sun? I know CW is against this and says it causes skin cancer, but I remember watching one of those survivor shows, I think it was Bear Grylls, where the guy is on a south Pacific island and the first thing he does is put coconut oil on his face to protect it from the sun.
