Don't slather yourself with potentially cancer-causing chemicals that are supposed to protect you from the sun. Just because your sunscreen is a brand you might know doesn't mean it's good for you. I always buy mineral-based sunscreens that are made with either non-nano zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Here's a list of non-toxic sunscreens we love, safe for the entire family, to use all year around.
NON TOXIC SUNSCREENS AND SUN CARE PRODUCTS
Facial Moisturizer with Zinc Oxide: I love using Botanic Organic Raspberry & Green Tea Daily Defense Moisturizer on a daily basis to defend and protect my skin from premature wrinkles. Not only my favorite facial moisturizer, it's also a great natural, non-toxic facial SPF. It's lightweight, blends well and serves as a great primer for under makeup or to use alone to protect skin every day. It contains 11% non-nano particle zinc oxide acts as a physical barrier to reflect UVA/UVB rays. This moisturizer is an antioxidant-rich with green tea extract. The sea buckthorn oil soothes redness and promotes skin cell regeneration to aid in repairing UV damage. It's organic, plant-based, cruelty-free, and soy-free.
