Products I'd Repurchase (Tates)
Better late than never ;P The goal for this series is for Jen to switch more of her items to natural, and me to help others make the switch with some help from my acquired knowledge about ingredients!
SUN PRODUCTS I RECOMMEND:
*=what I currently use
TYPES OF SUN PROTECTION:
- "Chemical sunscreen ingredients absorb sunlight preventing sun damage, absorb into your skin, can cause allergic reactions, and burning eyes when perspiring" -Take 30 minutes to work!
- "Physical ingredients sit on your skin’s surface forming a protective barrier and don’t have the ability to be absorbed into your skin. Light is either absorbed into the ingredient or reflected away from your body back into the atmosphere, similar to a mirror or tin foil"- Effective immediately!
-Physical protection = zinc oxide, titanium dioxide
-UVA + UVB protection (SPF "rating" only protects against UVB rays)
Physical protects both but Zinc protects more
(Active sun protectors will be in the active ingredient section)
-Citrus essential oils
-Chemical sun ingredients;
- Menthyl Anthranilate
-Natural butters - shea, cocoa, mango, etc
Natural oils - olive, coconut, avocado, etc
As always, feel free to ask any questions you have or shoot me a list of ingredients via youtube or my email firstname.lastname@example.org for help! Let me know if you decide to purchase any body washes and if you have suggestions for future episodes/posts!
