Let’s save our oceans with natural protection!

Did you know that in some places, such as Palau, Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Mexico, Aruba or Tuvalu, the use of conventional sun protection has already been prohibited?

Many sun creams on the market are made with benzophenone 3, oxybenzone and octyl-methoxycinnamate, octocrylene, and other chemical filters. These ingredients are undoubtedly harmful to our health, the planet, the environment and, specifically, to the ocean, as they cause coral bleaching and generally pose a risk to any marine ecosystem.

Consequently, in places like the beaches of Hawaii, the import, sale or use of any type of sun protection containing these toxic products is prohibited in order to preserve and protect marine ecosystems

There are many benefits to natural sun protection, especially the use of natural, biodegradable ingredients with no chemical filters, silicones or NANO ingredients. Unlike conventional protection, this type protects from UVA, UVB and IR rays very efficiently and offering maximum protection with no side-effects.

It’s up to us to take care of the ocean! Choose natural sun protection, choose to take care of yourself and the planet.

Are you aware of the risks of the number of chemical filters used in conventional sun protection, according to an FDA study?

Protecting our body from the sun should be a basic part of our day-to-day life, since the sun’s radiation is growing increasingly harmful for our organism. But what if the conventional sun protection we use is also harmful to our body?

Recently, researchers from the FDA—the U.S. Food and Drug Administration—revealed some interesting and previously unknown results from a clinical study that proves how some of the most common molecules in conventional sun protection could be harmful to our skin and immune system.

Specifically, it’s been proven that the chemical products that block UV rays also filter blood flow simultaneously. This doesn’t mean that these ingredients aren’t safe or reliable but, for now, there’s no clear answer that guarantees their safety either. In fact, this study has caused great uncertainty among dermatologists.

Without further research into the area and proof regarding possible future side effects caused by standard sun protection, the question for all consumers is: is it worth the doubt?

Do you know the difference between natural and conventional sun creams?

Why are natural sun creams more recommendable? What advantages do they have and how will they affect my body? Are there any eco-friendly creams? These are many of the questions that come up when we realise our body is priceless and has to be taken care of in the best way possible.

Sunbathing and nourishing our body with vitamin D, with the necessary measures in place, is synonymous with health and positivity. But even so, it’s one of the leading causes of skin deterioration and, therefore, it’s imperative that we do it in moderation and use the necessary protection. This is undeniable and the statement is one of the few things conventional and natural sun creams have in common.

Natural sun protection, unlike the conventional sort, protects us from UVA, UVB and IR rays very efficiently and offers maximum protection with no side-effects. Additionally, it is only made with natural physical filters and plant and biological components, with no harmful chemical ingredients.

Ingredients used in conventional sun protection can be harmful not only to our skin, but also to the environment and, particularly, the sea. Because of this, opting for natural sun protection; free of perfumes, nanoparticles, parabens and chemical filters, among others, is the best alternative for taking care of our health and our planet.
