    You could, but you'd be diluting the effectiveness of the sunscreen.

    Most sunscreens contain plenty of moisturizing ingredients, sometimes even shea butter. Don't add more. The formulators at the sunscreen company have already figured out the right balance of ingredients.

    If you insist, apply shea butter first, wait several minutes, and then apply sunscreen on top of it. Don't mix them together.

    yes, but shea butter is very thick so try and let it sit out to warm up first

    Shea butter alone can be used as sunscreen. But if you want the sunscreen to work properly, don't put anything in it.
