True Natural Sunscreens
You hear it all the time. You need to apply sunscreen. Whether it’s to prevent skin cancer or prevent aging, the mantra of “don’t forget to wear your sunscreen every day” is touted in every beauty and wellness magazine that there is. But as someone who looks into the ingredient list of EVERYTHING, I often wonder just how safe some of those products are. After all, you’re rubbing your body down in unnatural chemicals to prevent one problem, but………
That’s why it is so encouraging to find out about TRUE Natural Sunscreens. Only 100% natural products are used to effectively block the sun without adding chemical exposures to your list of things that you do every day.
TRUE says that their sunscreens are “Biobased,” which means that all of the ingredients are made from renewable biological material. More impressive, though, is the fact that TRUE products have been named to the EWG’s Skin Deep Sunscreens List 2011 as some of the best products available. And if you follow the EWG, then you will be suitably impressed.
There’s no nano-particles in TRUE’s sunscreens, either. And while the topic is too long to be discussed here, the widespread use of nanoparticles in sunscreens to drive the product deep into your skin’s surface is raising eyebrows and raising questions about safety standards and health risks.
So, is this all natural sunscreen weird or gloppy or hard to use?!? NO! It goes on just like anything else, doesn’t really have too much of a scent, dries clear, and all of the other properties that you want from a sunscreen, without anything that you don’t.
Among the products available from TRUE are:
Sunscreen is important, but so is what you put onto your skin, your body’s largest organ. A sunscreen that uses all natural ingredients takes away the questions of whether your sunscreen has nasty ingredients, yet allows you to enjoy your fun in the sun without worries every day.
