Organic Sunscreen

Finally, after months of wearing thick jumpers and woolly hats and turning the thermostat up to keep us warm and cosy, summertime is here! Now that we can stroll out in the sunshine in our summer clothes it is important to ensure your skin is protected by applying sunscreen to any body parts which are exposed to the sunlight. 

Why Use Sunscreen?

Sunscreen provides an effective protective agent against damage from the sun’s powerful rays for all ages, genders, and skin types. Regular application lessens the chance of developing skin cancer in adulthood. Regularly applying sunscreen can also slow or temporarily prevent the development of wrinkles, dark spots, and sagging skin.

Lotions, Potions & More! 

Sunblock comes in a variety of different types from lotion, spray, gel, foam, and stick to other topical products that absorb or reflect some of the sun’s ultra-violet rays and thus helps protect against sunburn. 

Choosing The Right Sunscreen For You And Your Family

Unfortunately, not all sunscreen is created equal. Many of the well-known, conventional sunscreens on the market contain chemicals which have been known to cause skin irritation, rashes, redness, itching, burning, and blisters. When shopping for new sunscreen it is important to consider the following: -

  • Do you need sunscreen for sensitive skin?
  • Do you want a product which is organic and natural without chemicals?
  • Would you prefer to use a product which is environmentally friendly?

If you have answered yes to one or more of the bullet points listed above, you may want to consider buying organic sunscreen.

Natural Products

Most organic sunscreen products are made from minerals, so they come without toxins, are effective against both types of sun rays, and biodegrade in water – making them safe for sea creatures sand people alike!

Sensitive Skins

Organic sunscreen is especially suitable for babies, people with sensitive skins and skin allergies and those with chronic skin conditions because they are made with natural ingredients, so do not contain any toxic chemicals!
