It’s summertime. Which means more sunshine, and more outside time: at the pool, at the beach, at the park, camping or just walking down the street. All in minimal clothing, by the way — so it’s sunscreen season, too. Actually, all year is sunscreen season, but in summertime, the extra exposure means sunscreen is extra important.
And when it comes to sunscreen, it’s important to pay attention to all the ingredients. Yes, we want that Vitamin D, but we want it safely, with sunscreens that are not made with toxic chemicals (that can be even more dangerous and deadly than the damage the sun can do).
Is Sunscreen More Dangerous Than Sun Damage?
In February, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration 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.
The FDA also said that common ingredients like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate and octisalate were not researched enough to be considered GRASE. In fact, available research shows significant skin absorption of these chemicals, and can lead to exposure to babies in utero. These chemicals are found in just about any ‘chemical barrier’ sunscreen, and even in some that tout themselves as made for children using ‘physical barriers’ — those that block UVA/UVB rays from getting into skin.
Bottom line? Read the ingredients on everything — especially sunscreen. You need to know what you’re putting in your (and your family’s) body.
A mineral sunscreen with cutting-edge, organic ingredients? Thanks, Earth Mama.
Earth Mama Organics has been taking care of mamas and babies and their delicate skin for years with only the cleanest ingredients sourced with great consideration. Their newest offering? Mineral sunscreen, formulated to be safe for the delicate and sensitive skin of pregnant women, new mamas, babies, and children (and actually, safe for the entire family). And by proxy, the sunscreen is completely safe for the entire ocean (reefs included and all the planet, too.)
Earth Mama Organics always goes above and beyond to find the best ingredients for their products — and this sunscreen is no different. All the sunscreens are loaded with nourishing oils, and contain organic ingredients that calm and soothe skin while it protects. Like the use of high-end organic red raspberry seed oil, because it has the highest naturally-occurring SPF value in the plant world. Or organic cranberry seed oil, for its SPF and antioxidant properties. So really, it’s like a premium, intensely moisturizing skin cream that also happens to be sunscreen.
An added bonus to their Mineral Sunscreen? The mineral is powerful, protective zinc — that’s non-nano, so it sits on the skin and scatters harmful rays. And it’s just white-ish enough (hey, old-school white noses were smart!) so you can see spots you missed.
