Our bodies need Vitamin D, which is provided by the sun, to function optimally. However, if you are constantly being beaten by the rays you will need to take some form of protection against it and using a natural sunscreen is one option you have.
We also recommend keeping hydrated, drinking lots and lots of water. Wearing a long sleeve shirt, a hat, sunglasses and keeping your skin supple by applying a nourishing natural moisturiser before heading outside.

Our entire family uses our Ambrosia Moisturiser with natural sunscreen, including the children and has done for 15 years! Some sunscreens commercially available in Australia contain a myriad of toxic chemicals and endocrine disruptors such as parabens - propylparaben, butylparaben etc. We strongly recommend choosing a sunscreen free from these.
The only way to ensure you are purchasing a natural sunscreen or at least a moisturiser with natural sunscreen and not purchasing a chemical cocktail is to read your ingredients.
