All natural sun protection

Did you know that sunscreens have a devastating environmental impact?

Many chemicals that sunscreens contain, such as Oxybenzone and Benzophenone (used also in soaps and body fragrances), are highly toxic to corals and other marine life.

An international team of scientists in 2016 has concluded that nontoxic Oxybenzone and Benzophenone alternatives are critical for protecting the reefs and the exacerbating effects posed by climate change and bleaching.

Did you know that some chemicals such as Avobenzone, Oxybenzone, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide produce often irreparable stains on fabrics?

To make sure your favorite summer clothes remain as good as new, and the sheets and towels in your apartment never lose that sparkling whiteness, please always make sure you wash off the sunscreen from your skin upon returning to your accommodation.

So what are the best ways to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays without hurting the environment or without accidentally finding a new tough stain on your favorite piece of clothing?

Here are some useful advises:

1. Make sure you get moderate exposure to sun. Avoid the hottest hours around midday and the early afternoon and look for shady places to hang out.

 

2. Wear just the right type of clothing to cover and keep your skin safe.

3. Use natural and mineral sunscreens. They contain plant based oils that nourish and moisturize your skin. Many plant based oils provide natural UV protection and they make excellent ingredients for your natural sunscreen.
