Sunscreen is always an important thing to remember. Especially now that it is summertime and things are starting to get pretty hot here in Upstate New York. Being quite fair, I burn very easily if I spend too much time in the sun without any protection.
When my digestive issues were first starting to hit me hard, I was lifeguarding at a local campground’s outdoor pool. I came home several times with sunburns. I quite often forget to apply sunscreen and that’s why I burned. Unfortunately, I was following the TV commercials recommendations and using Neutrogena sunscreen, I was completely unaware of the damage all the chemicals were doing to my body. I now know about the many genetic issues with my detox pathways (MTHFR, etc.) and wish so much that I had a natural sunscreen like Goddess Garden’s when I was working at that pool!
EWG (Environmental Working Group) included Goddess Garden in their 2016 list of non-toxic sunscreens! Both the Everyday and the Sports Sunscreen are rated a 1 out of 10 toxicity level. I use EWG as a resource all the time when shopping for nontoxic items.
Both of these sunscreens are very comfortable to wear. When I applied them, I noticed a faint, “natural” scent, but it was pretty nondescript and faded quickly. I found that they took a little extra effort to rub in all the way. I had a bit of a difficult time getting the white streakiness to massage into my skin, more so with the Sports lotion than the Everyday lotion.
Overall, I really like both of these sunscreens. They come at a pretty reasonable price. The ingredients are wonderful! And they feel nice on the skin.
I recommend Goddess Garden sunscreen to any sunscreen user!
