What kind of sunblock do you use, dumplings? Even among my very conscious and beauty-wise friends, finding the right natural sunscreen causes a lot of drama and hand-wringing. I know friends who have used non-toxic mineral sunscreens, only to find that they “don’t work” and cause burns/acne. Since Jessica Alba’s Honest Beauty sunscreen debacle, knowing what sunblock to choose is more important than ever.
Without further ado, watch our video where we explain how to find and apply the purest natural sunscreen!
Earthwise Beauty’s Farizad’s Veil is a zinc oxide powder which provides non-comedogenic sun protection. It also is full of powdered aloe leaves, frankincense, Moroccan roses, rose geranium, and pink Indian champaca flower. Isn’t that so much better than the following common ingredients in your sunscreen?
- Benzalkonium chloride: a preservative associated with skin, eye, and respiratory allergies.
- BenzophenoneA: UV light absorber that is a possible carcinogen and hormone disruptor.
- Dimethicone: A silicone used to give a silky texture that can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
- Oxygenzone: UV light absorber linked to allergies and possible hormone disruption.
If you’ve ever struggled with finding the natural sunscreen that is toxin-free, non-acnegenic, super protective, and lightweight enough for everyday wear, give powder sunscreen a try…You won’t regret it! 😀
Have you found the right natural sunscreen? And would you try powder sunscreen?
