Suntegrity All Natural Moisturizing Face Protection SPF 30

I know it is the middle of winter, but sun protection isn't just for summertime! You need sun protection all year long. Especially if you are going to be out and about all day doing any winter sports. Snow can reflect up to 85% of the sun’s rays.

For the past couple of years I have been replacing all my cosmetics, bathroom products, and house cleaners to more natural and eco friendly products.

On a recent hunt for a new sunscreen I stumbled across Suntegrity. I am so happy I did. I have found the perfect sun protection. It is all natural, light, and non-greasy. It also has a nice citrus smell, which I love. This sunscreen feels more like a light moisturizer more than a sunscreen. I was also able to apply my makeup right over it with no issue.

Suntegrity All Natural Moisturizing Face Protection with SPF 30 is top rated by the Environmental Working Group’s website (EWG) Cosmetics Database. This means rated low for any toxic chemicals.

This non-toxic sunscreen is is also vegan and cruelty-free. It doesn't contain any parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oils, synthetic dyes, sulfates, paba, titanium dioxide, nano-articles or chemical UV absorbers.

Suntegrity is a physical sunscreen.

Sunscreens can be broken down into two types: physical and chemical.

Physical sunscreens contain minerals such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and iron oxide that stay on the skin’s surface. They reflect the sun’s rays and do not get absorbed into the skin.

Chemical sunscreens contain synthetic compounds like parsol, benzophenones and paba as active ingredients. They absorb ultraviolet radiation that causes sunburn, damages DNA and can lead to skin cancer. These chemicals are also being absorbed into the body.

Hi Kelly,

Thanks for sharing! I started using it last summer right after it came out and I love it. I wear it every day under my makeup to get protection with a nice finish!
