Keep Harmful Parabens off Your Back and out of the Water with All-Natural Sun Protectants
MORRO BAY, CA (January 23, 2012) -Many are making healthier, more sustainable choices when it comes to what goes in their bodies, but what about what goes on?
As the sunnier seasons set in, green your ‘˜screen by choosing chemical-free over conventional with Elemental Herbs sun care products -coral-reef-safe formulas made with all-natural ingredients, including organic healing herbs and oils.
Boasting broad UVA/UVB protection, the company‘s SPF 30 Sunscreen Sport™and Sunstick™products bring pure, non-nano zinc oxide as an active ingredient -but without its usual ghostly glow. The goes-on-clear formulas can be slathered on without worry of unsightly white residue.
Swimmers, surfers, snorkelers and other ocean revelers can also rest easy knowing that their sun protection doesn‘t come at an environmental cost.
