Natural and organic sun protection products are the perfect choice for safe and natural tanning for all the family, and provide high, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection without harsh ingredients or additives.
Natural sunscreens in general are those that use mineral reflectors like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide to provide all-over skin protection. The latest formulations combine minute protective particles with other natural ingredients to offer added skin benefits – Green Tea, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil for example to hydrate, moisturise and replenish the skin…
The LoveLula range of lotions, creams, milks and sprays has been carefully selected to be suitable for all the family and those with sensitive skin, harnessing the protective properties of botanical extracts, minerals and essential oils. The most advanced formulas provide pure, chemical–free solutions rich in moisturisers, antioxidants and vitamins to protect against cell damage.
The best advice regarding sunscreen is to find the one YOU like the smell and feel of because you are more likely to use it regularly. Always follow the instructions on the bottle. As a general rule you should apply generously 15 minutes before going into the sun and reapply after swimming or sweating or at least every 2 hours. Remember to protect your eyes with quality sunglasses and use a balm to protect your lips. However, the human body does need vitamin D and sunshine also stimulates our brain’s ability to produce serotonin, a mood-boosting chemical. So, as in so many things, moderation is the key!
After-sun care is equally important to soothe, moisturise to maintain your tan. Products from experts such as Green People will soften and refresh skin, while the healing properties of pure Aloe Vera Gel are captured in the Santaverde range: rich in natural antioxidants to protect against cell damage. Our most popular after-sun product comes from the doctor himself! Hauschka’s After-Sun Lotion is intensely moisturising and helps prolong your tan while soothing and relieving stressed skin. We love it.
Our most popular sun-protection face product is actually an everyday moisturiser which also happens to have SPF 30 built-in. Kimberly Sayer’s Ultra Light Organic Facial Moisturiser has a long waiting list! We love it for its light texture and the fact that it offers complete mineral and anti-ageing protection without being heavy.
Our leading body suncare brand is Jason. Their family sunscreen offers the highest protection SPF 45 and also comes in a ‘Sports’ version which is waterproof.
We also have a choice of self-tanning products to give you that healthy summer glow even when the sun doesn’t shine. Both Trilogy and Green People have excellent self-tanning lotions with none of the artificial nasties found in conventional products. New Boutique brand TanOrganic claims to be the most natural tan you will ever use and just arrived Conscience Clear Tan does exactly what it says on the tin!
It’s natural to enjoy being outside during the summer, just do so sensibly, safely and beautifully!
