Sun care

5 ways to Green Your Sun care

To protect the earth while protecting your skin from the sun, you'll need to carefully examine product labels and ingredient lists on your sunscreen, lip balm, after-sun, and self-tanning lotions. The number one eco-concern associated with these products is the use of dangerous petrochemicals, which you can avoid by finding products that swap out synthetic ingredients in favor of natural, plant-based ones. Minimize your—and the earth's—exposure to these chemicals even further by using clothing to protect your skin from the sun. Up your impact by going organic and cruelty-free in your purchase, and choosing products in recycled packaging when possible.
