Summer has arrived and school’s out here in Florida, where lucky locals can count on sunshine nearly every day of the year. While we may head off to Siesta Key and other local beaches, others around the country will head to parks, lakes and distant shores for summer fun in the sun. To protect tender skin and avoid sun damage and overexposure, most of us will slather on conventional sunscreen products that absorb ultraviolet rays. Unfortunately, many sunscreens contain unpronounceable chemically-based ingredients that are easily absorbed by the skin, circulate throughout the body and have been linked to hormone and endocrine disruption and cancer.
Goddess Garden Organics produces premium sunscreen products that provide serious sun protection using only synergistic plant-based ingredients and naturally occurring minerals, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, that block both UVA and UVB rays. As opposed to chemically-based ingredients, these natural minerals are not absorbed into the skin but immediately form a sheer, non-greasy protective barrier that deflects 97% of the sun’s rays.
Family owned and located in Boulder, Colorado, Goddess Garden Organics is committed to providing highly effective natural sunscreen products that protect and nourish even the most sensitive skin. All products are manufactured in a certified-organic production facility utilizing only natural ingredients such as lavender essential oil, aloe vera, sunflower and coconut oil, radish and shea butter. As our skin is our largest organ and is constantly exposed to toxic chemicals in personal care products and environmental pollutants, it just makes sense to use products that contain natural, organic ingredients and avoid products that deliver a harmful dose of chemical ingredients.
No toxic chemicals, synthetic ingredients or animal products are ever used. Non-GMO, vegan formulas, phthalate and paraben free. Gentle on the earth, 100% biodegradable and reef safe ingredients. Cruelty free, no animal testing. No nano particles.
