Summer means fun in the sun and it also means we need to make sure we’re protecting ourselves with safe sunscreens for the whole family. Earth Mama Organics wants to help mamas do so by giving three lucky Mothering Readers bundles of their Earth Mama Organics Mineral Sunscreens.
Sunscreen is important year-round, but especially when we’re getting extra exposure from the beach, pool, camping and more. Yes, we want that Vitamin D, but we want it safely, and with sunscreens that are not made with chemicals and toxins that can be even more dangerous and deadly than the damage the sun. So what’s a Mama to do? Turn to Earth Mama Organics Mineral Sunscreen, of course!
Earth Mama Organics takes the journey of motherhood seriously, and that includes taking care of our body’s largest organ—the skin. They know what’s in your sunscreen is just as important as what is not, and their mineral sunscreen will take care of your family and our earth.
The Wrong Sunscreen Can Be Worse Than Sun Damage
Earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration released new regulatory guidelines specifically addressing the dangers of ingredients in common sunscreens. The FDA reported that only two ingredients (of 16 often found in sunscreens)—zinc and titanium dioxide—were safe enough to be rated as GRASE, or Generally Regarded As Safe and Effective. They also found that two of the 16– PABA and trolamine salicylate—were not considered GRASE, and the remaining 12 found in many sunscreens? The FDA said they needed more research into not only efficacy claims, but safety for consumers.
Of those 12, the FDA said that common ingredients like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate and octisalate were not researched enough to be considered GRASE, but declared mineral sunscreens to be safe for entire families.
And that means that it’s super important you read labels and know what you’re putting on your body and your little ones’ bodies when you are protecting from sun damage because many ‘kids’ brands still have those chemical ingredients.
But not Earth Mama Organics Mineral Sunscreen. We’ve loved Earth Mama Organics for years for their commitment to mamas and babies, and we can’t love their new sunscreen line enough. They are physical barrier sunscreens that don’t have any chemical ingredients, and they’re reef-safe, made with non-nano zinc and other natural UVA/UVB blockers.
