Sun protection is a year-round skincare necessity. But research is starting to show that some of the technologies and products used for sun protection now are actually damaging your skin and/or compromising your overall health. Endocrine disruptors, carcinogens and a bunch of pore-clogging ick make a lot of the most popular sunscreen brands poor choices.
What to use instead? Hale Cosmeceuticals’ sun protection.
Like our complete skincare product line, our sun protection is carefully formulated and processed to deliver maximum performance and enhance skin health.
The type of sunscreen you use matters to your skin, your overall health and the planet. Most sunscreens on the market today use chemicals to protect your skin. These products allow UV rays to penetrate your skin where they are trapped by the active chemicals. The new chemical compounds that result work their way into your bloodstream to be filtered out of your body, increasing the workload for your body’s detox systems. Sometimes, these new chemical compounds are just stored in your tissues where they may increase the risk for some types of cancers.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, some of the chemicals used in sunscreens are also harmful to the environment. Oxybenzone, for instance, can cause coral reef damage.
There is a human- and earth-friendly alternative: Complexion Protection, Hale Cosmeceuticals’ full spectrum, SPF 35 sunscreen.
Complexion Protection’s active ingredient is titanium dioxide, which acts as a physical barrier that reflects UV rays away from the skin before they can penetrate and incite skin-damaging free radicals.
Complexion Protection is also formulated with numerous botanicals and other skin-nourishing compounds, including:
Complexion Protection is a 100% vegan product. All active and less-than-active ingredients are plant-derived from sustainable sources. Our sun protection is as safe for our planet as it is for your skin.
