There is nothing worse than sunburn and in Australia if we are not careful it can happen very quickly and its very painful. So, in the Summer we are bombarded with the ' slip, slop,slap" propaganda. Slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen and slap on a hat. That is all well and good especially since our sun is really harsh. A shirt and a hat is easy enough but I can't stand shopping for sunscreen. There are dozens and dozens of brands out there all promising the same amount of UV protection but how can one be better than the other and forget about trying to find one that wont make my skin break out in little red bumps.
I had the opportunity to try out the Soleo Organics All Natural Sunscreen 30+ recently. I'm impressed that this sunscreen is great for my whole family. I have a bit of a horror story with a 'baby 50+ sunscreen' that made my 18 month old daughter come out in a rash on her arms. This sunscreen is very gentle and I haven't heard any complaining from her which is fantastic.
Not only is this sunscreen gentle but is wavers more toward the natural side of things and is missing those nasty Chemical UV Filters, titanium dioxide and Synthetic Preservatives.
This sunscreen does not have much of a scent and it doesn't leave a slick of oil on the skin either. Its very comfortable to wear and it doesn't dry of irritate my skin. The formulation is quiet thick and requires a bit of muscle to squeeze out of the tube, however this may be because it is more of like an invisible zinc and I find zinc very thick. This sunscreen also contains a bunch of ingredients that I recognise such as grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, chamomile flower extract and cucumber fruit extract which is always a good sign to me.
So, do natural sunscreens give good sun protection? Yes, well this one did. I am happy to report sun protected skin and no more little red bumps for myself and bubs. What a gentle sunscreen this is!
Have you tried a natural sunscreen yet?
