A trusted sunscreen is a vital part of any complete skin care routine. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed commonly used chemical sunscreens ingredients like oxybenzone, avobenzone and octocrylene, are absorbed into the bloodstream at potentially toxic levels after just one day of use!
La Sunflower's Sunshade contains NO chemical sunblocks and offers a broad spectrum sunscreen providing protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Even though we have not had scientific measured levels of SPF performed, we can assuredly claim an SPF of 25-30, if not higher. Our recipe contains 20% non-nano, uncoated zinc oxide, with a boosted sunray protection from organic plant oils of raspberry seed, carrot seed, coconut, sunflower and shea butter, all of which have added natural SPF factors.
La Sunflower's Sunshade Cream is an unscented, incredibly smooth, thick, soft cream that rubs in easily and is perfectly safe to use on your 90 year old grandmother, your infant's face and your own skin. In fact, it's a wonderful moisturizer you don't feel a need to wash off at the end of the day, like most sun creams.
What is a mineral sunscreen? The main difference between chemical and mineral sunscreens can be found in their ingredient lists. Mineral sunscreens work in a completely different way than chemical sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens penetrate your skin and offer protection by dissipating UV rays, and have ingredients that may potentially cause health problems. By contrast, mineral sunscreens simply sit on top of your skin and reflect UV rays away from your body and provide a physical barrier between your skin and the sun’s rays. Ideally, you’ll want to reapply mineral sun cream products every two to three hours when out in full sun, a small price to pay to decrease being exposed to a boatload of toxins.
