As some of you may have heard, we have some BIG news here at Beautycounter! We just launched the Protect Body Sun Stick Sunscreen with SPF 30. It’s a new jumbo size that kids love, and so will you.
Why is this my new favorite you ask?—it’s like a spray (easy to apply), but in the form of a stick for your body. I love it because I can use it on the kids (they enjoy applying it onto themselves). The sunscreen stick is great for camp, travel, beach, pool, and everywhere else you use sunscreen. So make sure to replace your aerosol sun spray with this fabulous new product! Spray sunscreens are dangerous, especially for kids because they are more likely than adults to breathe in the chemical toxins being sprayed out of the can, which can cause damage to their lungs. It is also easy to apply in the car. I know that sounds funny but its true. On the way to camp today, my 4 year old covered his whole body with sunscreen without getting messy cream all over the car and his hands. He was so proud, and mom was too!
The Stick Sunscreen SPF 30 offers you protection that’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes (don’t forget to reapply!). It also doesn’t leave you white streaks—I promise—and the stick keeps you blocked from all the harmful UVB and UVA rays. Perfect for full body coverage, the stick won’t leave your skin feeling greasy. If you’re looking for something a bit smaller, check out the Protect Stick Sunscreen SPF 30, which you can throw in your purse when you’re on-the-go (think small for your face and jumbo for your body).
Remember, not all sunscreens are made with you (or your family) in mind. There are commercial sunscreens out there that are made with chemical sunblockers, which can soak through skin, trigger allergic reactions, and potentially disrupt hormones. We have to protect ourselves and our family from harmful UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are powerful and harmful sun rays that affect the outer layers of your skin, where most skin cancers occur. UVB rays cause sunburn. Sunscreens that are SPF 30 to 50 will provide you with the right amount of protection from both types of UV rays. Anything over SPF 50 can be dangerous.
Our sunscreens are made with non-nano zinc oxide, which allows for the product to blend in easily, and is an effective, natural mineral sunblocker. This one also hydrates the skin because it’s made with aloe, as well as antioxidant-rich green tea and blood orange extracts that help fight free radicals.
Make sure to STOCK UP as this won’t last. It will fly off the shelves! Stay safe in the sun, friends!
