Native Ingredients in Arizona Sun Products

At Arizona Sun, we’re known for the unique ingredients we use from plants that are native to the Sonoran Desert. Our sun and skincare products are made from 44 different natural cacti and plants from the southwest. The healing properties that come from plants such as cacti, sage, aloe vera, and jojoba are what make our moisturizer and sunscreens unlike any other. When braving the heat this summer, you might also need aloe-based sunburn relief products with the elements of the desert in mind.


Jojoba Extract for Healthy, Smooth Skin 

One of the coveted ingredients of Arizona Sun is the native Jojoba plant. Jojoba seeds produce a waxy substance from its extract which has been used in holistic medicine for centuries. Because it’s a wax and not an oil, it doesn’t become rancid. Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins found in jojoba extract aid in skin repair and rejuvenation and can even help with eczema to keep the skin calm and soothe redness. Vitamin E, an antioxidant, helps fight oxidative stress caused by pollutants and other toxins in the air.


Jojoba extract is a humectant ingredient in our sunscreen and moisturizers which means it seals your skin with a protective barrier to keep from losing moisture. The extract is very similar to sebum, the oil your skin naturally produces. When your skin is smooth and moisturized with jojoba extract, it knows not to produce excess sebum which causes clogged pores. All Arizona Sun products with sensitive skin in mind, ensuring that

Cactus Extract as a Skin Supplement 

You’ve probably noticed that prickly pear cactus is the new beauty trend as it’s become popular in many face washes, toners, and facial wipes. For the past 38 years, Arizona Sun has been using cactus extract in our products. Cactus has the ability to replenish collagen levels in your skin. Collagen is a protein that is the main component of connective tissue in the body. It’s also full of antioxidants that moisturize and restore skin, just like jojoba extract.

Natural Sunburn Relief

Aloe vera isn’t the only thing that aids in sunburn relief, although it makes up most of our famous Sunburn Relief gel and is another plant native to the desert. Sunburn severely dries out skin and causes flaking. Vitamin E found in jojoba extract, along with other antioxidants, helps heal sunburnt skin by soothing redness and speeding up the healing process. The sooner you apply Arizona Sun moisturizer to sunburnt skin, the faster you’ll heal and find relief. 


Sunburn is inevitable at some point every summer. There’s likely a day or two every year where you find yourself outside longer than expected or simply forget your sunscreen altogether. When this happens, trust Arizona Sun sunburn relief products to help soothe and moisturize your skin.
