Skin Safety: Natural Sunscreen
It’s Spring, the perfect time to get your tan on. We at Good Earth, the organic food store, understand that you want to be outside without looking like a lobster. With our wide selection of natural sunscreens and skin tanners, we can help you achieve that bronze God status. Check out our Personal Care section for natural sunscreens.
The most common sunscreens on the market contain chemical fillers. These products typically include a combination of two to six of these active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate. While these products can block the sun’s rays, these additives have shown in studies to disrupt hormones, cause irritation and allergic reactions, and are linked to skin cancer. Why wear a sunscreen with chemicals you can’t pronounce?
At Good Earth, we carry natural sunscreens such as Alba Botanica (available as a sun-less tanner and lotion), Mychelle Dermaceuticals, Badger (available in SPF 15 and 30) and more! These lightweight, easy to apply mineral sunscreens protect your skin from a broad spectrum of UVB and UVA sun rays. With no added fillers or chemicals, we pride ourselves in carrying all natural sunscreens never tested on animals.
Because the sunscreens and sunless tanners are mineral and Zinc based, they leave no residue or oily feeling when applying. Zinc prevents the cream from seeping into your skin creat-ing a barrier against the sun’s rays. Natural sunscreens are safe to use on family members of all ages, with no fear or irritation or redness when applying. By cost comparison, natural sunscreens cost about the same of your average drug store sunscreen. But why wear chemicals when you can go with something all natural?
