Caribbean Blue Natural Sunscreen Reef Friendly SPF15 - 100ml
Our Reef Friendly Caribbean Blue SPF15 Natural Sunscreen is a unique 100% all-natural sunscreen formula which is also kind to the environment. Instead of synthetic chemical ingredients, Caribbean Blue SPF15 contains natural zinc oxide. Natural tropical oils, botanical extracts, and anti-oxidant vitamins are also used for this completely natural, hypo-allergenic formula that protects, moisturises and soothes the skin.
All-Natural SPF15 is formulated using the latest scientific research findings and information on sun protection: UVB rays are mostly involved with sunburns, while the deeper penetrating UVA rays are involved with premature aging, wrinkling and even skin cancers. Many chemical sunscreens protect only from UVB rays, and allow penetration of damaging UVA rays. Zinc oxide is the only ingredient that is FDA-recognized as having both UVB and UVA broadest-spectrum protection, as well as having therapeutic benefits.
Caribbean Blue SPF15 is also ideal for use on the face. It can help to cover up rosacea especially if worn under a light mineral foundation such as Paul Penders Natural Moisturing Foundation.
Many healthcare practitioners believe that a Sun Protection Factor of 15 (SPF 15) is basically all that is needed for overall protection from the sun. An SPF 15 blocks 93.3% of the sun’s UVB rays, while an SPF 30 blocks 96.7%. Therefore, the SPF 15 provides a level of maximal screening of the suns rays, and SPF values above this point give less and less added protection. However, having said this, there are times when a higher SPF factor can be useful - for instance, when it is impossible to keep certain areas of the body away from the sun's rays; such as the tip of the nose, the back of the neck and sometimes the shoulders. An SPF 25 lotion can be useful in these circumstances but we would always recommend that you keep out of the sun completely between the hours of 11.00 am and 3.00 pm. There is also a growing body of evidence to suggest that a little sunshine is good for your skin giving your body important amounts of Vitamin D which is difficult to get through a normal diet. As in most things in life, moderation is the key; only you know your own body, how it tans and how it reacts to the sun.
If you have had any skin problems that require a very high sunscreen, we do now sell Organii SPF50. Most health professionals do not now recommend using a sunscreen above SPF30, however, due to popular demand we stock this product for those who wish to be ulta-cautious.
