Benefits of Natural SPF: 4 Mineral-Based Sunscreens for Everyday Wear
The key to healthy, glowing skin? Natural sunscreen. An everyday SPF is vital in protecting your skin from sun damage, air pollutants, and even blue light.
Traditional sunscreen is formulated with a chemical-base and designed to absorb into your skin, dispersing chemicals into your body. Natural sunscreen is mineral-based and acts as a protective layer on the surface of your skin, rather than seeping into your pores. Once applied, it immediately blocks out harmful UVA rays, UVB rays, blue light, and air pollutants.
Not only is natural sunscreen healthy for your body, its also easy on the planet. Mineral-based sunscreen is reef safe and doesn’t harm marine life.
