    Why Vegan Sunscreen is Better for Your Skin

    When you think of the word vegan, you're more likely to think of food than specialty skincare. But, vegan is also an important world in the world of sunscreen. When looking for effective protection this summer, it's important to look at all the ingredients in your sunscreen especially if they are unnatural.

    The Science Behind Sunscreen

    Sunscreen is essentially a mixture of ingredients that is applied topically to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Sunscreen can be made with chemicals that absorb rays or naturally occurring minerals that shield skin, acting as a protective barrier. Many people opt for the chemical sunscreen for convenience these sunscreens are easily applied as sprays, gels, and usually have a greasy feel. And while they are formulated to absorb UV rays, many sunscreens are made with unnatural chemicals that can cause irritation to your skin. These chemicals include:

    • Avobenzone
    • Homosalate
    • Octisalate
    • Octocrylene
    • Oxybenzone
    • Oxtinoxate

    You always want to know what you're putting on your skin, especially if you're going to be reapplying it heavily every few hours. Sunscreen with absorbative chemicals actually get into your bloodstream, causing your body to work harder to detoxify. It is always recommended to use a mineral sunscreen that physically repels UV rays.
