Okay folks, it’s almost summer (wahoooooooooooooo!) and I know you’ve looked everywhere for non-toxic sunscreen and the only thing on the shelves is a tube of white paste full of chemicals, right? Yuck. Most sunscreens are full of toxic chemicals and as I’ve discussed numerous times, your skin is your biggest organ. It’s so important to make sure your sunscreen is free of chemicals so that you can lessen the body burden of toxins on your liver and other organs!
I know it’s a struggle to find ‘real’ sunscreen in the store so…
Today’s post is all about sunscreen. I’m sharing my favorite non-toxic and organic brands so you’re all set for soaking up the sunshine this summer.
No sunburn over here.
Don’t let the label ‘natural’ fool you on a bottle of sunscreen; the word natural isn’t regulated so you’ll need to make sure you’re reading the ingredient list to ensure there are no chemicals inside the bottle! The brands below are all non-toxic and are easy to apply for kids and adults.
There isn’t a sunscreen on the market that gives you 100% protection but SPF 30 blocks 97% of the sun’s UV rays and SPF 50 may block a few more rays but there’s not much evidence that a higher number of sunblock blocks more rays. If I were you, I’d use 30 or 50 and wouldn’t go below or above either of those numbers.
