The Benefits of Using Natural Sunscreen
Major brands now realize that consumers want natural sunscreen. Without even changing the formulas, many are adding a “natural” labeling when it’s not.
There are so many words that we are told to look for when shopping for our makeup, skincare and sunscreen: natural, organic, chemical-free, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly. However, these call-outs are not strictly regulated, which means they are not 100% natural. We must know how to read a label to fully protect our delicate skin.
Love Sun Body 100% Natural Origin Mineral Sunscreens are the first and only sunscreens in the U.S. certified by Ecocert Cosmos Natural and have been clinically tested hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and are reef safe.
Advantages of using natural sunscreens:
- No toxicity: The mineral UV filters zinc oxide and titanium dioxide sit on top of the skin and are not absorbed into the bloodstream. Several common chemical UV sunscreens filters are absorbed by the skin and enter the bloodstream.
- No irritation: Without any harmful chemicals, artificial colors, or other byproducts, they are less likely to cause any skin irritation.
- Overall effectiveness: Natural ingredients supplied by the earth have been effective for centuries. They are all the skin needs to remain healthy. Stick to the basics and enjoy the benefits.
- Well-being: It’s important for all your skincare to be natural for your overall health, it provides your skin with the purest form of the ingredient on the market. UVA/UVB protection from head to toe will keep your skin glowing all year round.
- Earth-friendly: Natural products are not only good for the skin, they are good for the environment. The chemical UV filters oxybenzone and octinoxate have been banned in Hawaii, Key West and the US Virgin Islands for bleaching the coral reefs.
