Natural vs. Traditional Sunscreens
For the past few months leading up to summer, I’ve been thinking about making a natural sunscreen for Laura’s Lotions. I’ve gone to grocery stores and natural food stores, comparing the ingredients in both natural and traditional sunscreens. I’ve also been researching online the basic ingredients for natural sunscreen and what percentages of these ingredients will help protect your skin from the sun most effectively. It would be great if every person would look at the back of a label so they would see what they were putting on or in their bodies, but not everyone thinks that way. I want to make sure Laura’s Lotions sunscreen will be safe and effective so, I will continue to research and develop this lotion. In the meantime, here is an article that discusses the benefits of natural sunscreens and gives insight about the ingredients of natural vs. traditional sunscreen.
