Sunscreen Reinvented: Vitamins, Minerals & No Chemicals

Sun screen is something we've been smearing all over ourselves since the time we were infants. We feel good about protecting ourselves from sun damage, but rarely pause to consider what exactly we're putting on our skin; what exactly we're allowing our skin to absorb. [caption id="attachment_347" align="alignleft" width="92" caption="Azur Sunscreen, SPF 30 & 40"]Azur Sunscreen, SPF 30 & 40[/caption] Sunscreens include powerful sun-blocking ingredients that, while being extremely effective at protecting our skin, can be absorbed into our systems and cause some serious damage.  Ranging from free radical damage, disruption of hormone activity and potentially carcinogenic activity, chemicals like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octocrylene & octinoxate found in many sunscreens might hurt your skin worse than a sun burn! Don't worry... we have a solution!  We're really excited about Azur sunscreen, an all-natural, mineral based sunscreen that is 100% chemical free- and effective!  Loaded with important vitamins & moisturizing aloe vera, this luxurious sunscreen attributes its effectiveness to using a physical instead of a chemical barrier against UV radiation.  What a good idea.
