Chemical or Physical Sunscreen: Which Is Best (and Safest)?

Chemical or Physical Sunscreen: Which Is Best (and Safest)?

I'm amazed that June is already here! ☀️

This month provides a great chance to reduce toxins and embrace a more natural way of living. As summer kicks off, farmers' markets are brimming with fresh produce like strawberries, zucchinis, and leafy greens. These seasonal treats are rich in nutrients and free from the heavy processing that can introduce toxins into our bodies. Additionally, the longer days and warmer weather create the perfect setting for outdoor activities. Whether you're hiking, biking, or simply strolling in the park, spending time in nature enhances physical health, reduces stress, and fosters a feeling of well-being.

As we enjoy June's renewal, it's also a good time to rethink how we protect our skin from the sun while caring for the environment. Choosing the right sunscreen is key!

Chemical sunscreens, which absorb UV radiation, can harm marine life and are hormone disrupters! Mineral sunscreens, using natural minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, physically block UV rays and are less likely to cause irritation or environmental damage. The lesson here is...look for mineral sunscreen that's "reef-safe" with non-nano zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. 

Here is a quick list of brands that offer safe, non-toxic mineral sunscreens.

  • Acure
  • All Good
  • Badger 
  • Beauty by Earth
  • Juice Beauty 
  • Kinfield Daily Dew 
  • Suntegrity
  • Thinksport
  • Young Living
    By making mindful choices about what we put on our skin and engaging more with nature, we can reduce toxins and enhance our well-being. Embrace June's opportunities and step into summer with a renewed commitment to health and sustainability!
