Did you know that chemicals from sunscreens are absorbed through your skin and straight into your bloodstream?
Chemical sunscreens (yes this means just about everything you find on your supermarket shelves) are laden with toxic ingredients and heavy metals that you don't want entering your bloodstream. On the other hand natural and organic sunscreens are free of chemical nasties, are mineral based so they reflect UB rays without anything harmful entering your bloodstream.
I'm really passionate about this as more and more studies are linking chemical sunscreens to nasty health conditions, so much so that Hawaii is banning the sales of chemical sunscreens on the island because of the effect it is also having on the surrounding coral and waters when washed off the body!
I'm so passionate about this subject that the only way I could ensure to protect my family and customers well and ensure that their health wasn't negatively impacted was to manufacture my own...
I researched, tried and tested until I came up with this amazingly effective yet healthy formula that I now manufacture as my Sun Essentials Natural Sunblock. I've packed it full of the highest quality hydrating and antioxidant ingredients such as hempseed oil, shea butter, borage oil, rosemary extract & vitamin E and added natural SPF protectants raspberry seed oil, carrot oil, rice bran oil and sesame oil. This sunscreen is gentle and non-greasy on the skin yet effective and it's suitable for babies through to adults and all skin types.
If you are caught in a position to have to buy sunscreen in a hurry while out somewhere that doesn't stock mine, here's what to avoid...
- Oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate.
- Petrochemicals (carcinogens)
- Silicones (to repel water)
- Synthetic preservatives
- Vitamin A
Here's what to look for in the ingredients of non harmful sunscreens...
- Antioxidants: to help protect against free radicals
- Natural plantoils: like carrot and raspberry seed
- Anti-inflammatories: like jojoba oil, shea butter and coconut oil
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Apply liberally to skin 15 – 20 minutes prior to sun exposure. Re-apply every 2 hours or after swimming and sweating.
