Removing mainstream chemical UV absorber based sunscreens from your beach bag, is another great way to reduce your family's 'chemical overload'.  Zinc oxide is a safer and more effective sun blocker and when used in combination with antioxidant rich nourishing oil bases, we have a winning combination! It provides both UVA and UVB sun protection, whereas the synthetic chemical filters only protect from UVB (sunburn) but not from UVA ( skin damge ).

Recent medical research has identified serious concerns about the chemical UV-absorbers, PABA oxybenzone, benzophenone, homosalate, octinoxate, padimate O, and a host of preservatives currently used in commercial sunscreens. (Read the long list of non-pronounceable ingredients!)

The most alarming of these, are the effects they may be having on our hormones and the contribution they may in fact be making to some types of skin cancers. We all know we need to protect ourselves from over exposure to sun, but we do not know the long term effects of lathering ourselves and our children in liberal applications of chemical based sunscreens. Our skin readily absorbs much of what we apply to it. So why take the risk and continue to buy them when we have safe and effective alternatives?

Naturally home has searched ‘high and low’ for the best toxin free, Australian, sunscreens available. After much research, we believe we have found six of the best products -

Soleo Organics Sunclear, EcoLogical, Simple As That, Ecotan, Little Urchins and Grahams sunscreens, are six gorgeous natural alternatives that protect, as well as actually nourish and moisturise your skin, as they have beautiful natural oil bases.

These sunscreens have passed the test of fussy members of our family who hate feeling too ‘greasy’ and therefore refuse to use some other toxin free brands. The EWG  gives these sunscreens the 'greenlight', with a rating of 1-Low Hazard. They are amongst the safest available on the Australian market.

For a safe and natural fake tanning option, our Ecotan and Divine all natural tanning creams give the most natural golden glow and eliminate the need to use those toxic pharmacy and supermarket brands! We say YAY to that.... especially when our teens are tanning obsessed!
