Three reasons why you want to choose natural sunscreen
Written by Amy Ekinci.
Summer is in full swing and we are only too happy to embrace it. But before you seek the sun's rays, it is essential to have the right protection. Forget the plastic tubes, because in this blog we give you three rock-solid reasons to choose natural sunscreen.
1. Ciao chemicals
Your skin is precious, so why expose it to unnecessary chemicals? Some, non-natural sunscreens contain ingredients such as oxybenzone and octinoxate. These can be irritants, and you won't make your skin happy. Instead, natural sunscreens are a hug for the skin. For example, they often consist of gentle ingredients that nourish and protect the skin. Think coconut oil, berry wax and vitamin C.
2. Maximum protection
Don't worry, natural sunscreens provide the protection you need. Instead of chemical UV filters, mineral UV filters are used.
Zinc oxide and titanium oxide are examples of natural filters that are perfect for sunscreen. These reflect the sun's rays and protect you from UVA & UVB radiation. You can read more about the nano form and coating of these ingredients in this blog. Either way, it's a great alternative with no concessions.
3. Kind to the ocean
With sun comes sea, and with sea comes coral. But did you know that non-natural sunscreen can damage coral reefs? This is because of chemicals, which get into the ocean while swimming. These pollute the water, bleach the coral and can even be toxic to some marine animals. Natural sunscreens, on the other hand, are a lot kinder to the ocean.
