Safe SPF October 20 2014

One of your healthiest options for topical sun protection is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide.

Being in the sun is still an important and enjoyable part of many people’s lives. You don’t have to give up the outdoor activities that you love, just stay protected and educated.  I recommend Zinc Oxide as a healthy and effective option.

Zinc Oxide is a healing mineral with anti-inflammatory properties that is used for sun protection. It helps to reflect both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays, making it a broad- spectrum sunscreen ingredient. Upon application, zinc oxide particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, where they scatter and absorb ultraviolet radiation, protecting your skin below.

In non-nano particle form, it is considered to be safe for all ages and skin conditions.  It’s important to make sure the zinc oxide in your sun protector is NON –nano zinc oxide. A nano particle will enter the blood stream but a non-nano will not.

Chemical sunscreens, containing nano particles, will enter the bloodstream and that is why DNA altering ingredients like oxybenzone has gotten such a bad rap.

Using non-nano particle zinc oxide is a safe and truly effective alternative to chemical sunscreens.

Enjoy the rays...
