If you’ve been reading my posts, you’re probably already aware that I’m crazy about sunscreen! It is such an important part of my daily beauty regimen—I don’t leave the house without it (neither do my girls). And for those who have been following me also know that not all sunscreens are created alike.
Many sunscreens are notorious for being made with chemicals that can harm our bodies and that of our children. However, there are safe alternatives. Beautycounter’s Protect All Over Sunscreen SPF 30 has one of the best safety rating, according to EWG. Almost all of the ingredients listed have an individual EWG safety rating of 1 or 2 (only two ingredients, lecithin and phenoxyethanol, have a rating of 3 and 4, which is considered moderate).
EWG’s mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment by providing them with information about products and the safety of ingredients those products are made with.
One of the most “concerning” ingredients in many sunscreens is oxybenzone. In 2008, a study revealed that oxybenzone disrupts the hormones in the endocrine system, which can cause cancer, birth defects and developmental disorders.
Beautycounter’s Protect All Over Sunscreen is made without oxybenzone. Instead, it uses non-nano zinc oxide, which is a safer, more effective, and natural mineral sun blocker. It blends perfectly into skin without leaving white streaks, and protects you and your family against both UVA and UVB rays. Plus, it’s been made with aloe to help hydrate your skin. The antioxidant-rich green tea and blood orange extracts fight free radicals, which are caused by the environment, stress, inflammation, alcohol and exposure to sunlight and air pollution.
If you’re looking for a safe sunscreen alternative for babies, kids and adults, the Protect All Over Sunscreen SPF 30 is just what you need! If you have questions or want more information about this product, feel free to shoot me a message!
