Summer is finally here and we all know what that means, Sun and a lot of it! While we all want to have fun under the sun, we still need to remember to protect our skin against those harsh UV rays that can lead to long term skin damage. The question now is, what sunscreen should I use?
We all know that we have to wear SPF, but you might not have known that not all sunblocks are created equal. According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) many companies use harsh chemicals in their sunscreens, including Oxybenzone and Retinyl palmitate. Oxybenzone has been known to interfere with the body’s endocrine system and has been linked to birth defects, developmental disorders, fertility problems, and even cancer. Retinyl palmitate, when exposed to sunlight, can lead to harmful effects on your hair, nails, and even your bones.
At 100% Pure, we do not use any of these harsh chemicals. Our broad spectrum, physical sunblocks are made with either zinc and or titanium which are totally safe and all natural to protect against both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) sun rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens that absorb the active UV rays, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are physical blockers that prevent UV rays from penetrating through the skin. Our sunscreen are non-comedogenic, contain no fragrances, and are safe and gentle for all skin types. The EWG has recognized 100% Pure as one of the best sunscreens and we couldn’t agree more. So before you go on vacation be sure to pack our sunscreens in your beach bag so you can be sure that your skin is being protected while enjoying your time under the sun.
