If you're a Sun Lover looking for the best alternative to the
chemical/synthetic sunscreens on the market today, look no further! SunLover's
Lotion is a homemade, all-natural, non-toxic, chemical-free, organic lotion
that protects your skin from the sun while still allowing your body to soak up
all of its benefits.
Sunscreens today are full of endocrine disrupting, allergy-causing, free
radical producing chemicals that can lead to negative health outcomes for
yourself and your loved ones using them. Some of these chemicals are absorbed
into your bloodstream and disrupt the normal functions of your hormones, can
damage your cells, and trigger allergic reactions. (Stay away from ingredients
like Avobenzone, Homosalate, Methylisothiazolinone, Retinyl Palmitate,
Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, and Parabens AKA methylparaben, propylparaben,
isoparaben, and butylparaben) Instead, look for Mineral Sunscreens like
SunLover's that are creams with Non-Nano Zinc Oxide and/or titanium dioxide!!
Growing up, my father, who is a chiropractor & huge proponent of all-natural &
chemical-free products, used to make me a similar version to this "sunscreen."
He knew that the lotions and sprays from drugstores are full of potentially
harmful ingredients & that you can use plant-based, naturally occurring
ingredients to protect your skin instead.
After some trials, I came up with my own recipe that I personally use and
When making this lotion, it was important to me to make something that would
prevent sunburn, but still allow me to get a nice tan. Because of this, I use
Non-Nano Zinc Oxide which does not absorb into your bloodstream (the safest,
most effective sun protection), Coconut Oil, and Red Raspberry Seed Oil as
natural SPFs (SPF ~30-45). I add Carrot Seed Oil to help promote tanning and
skin healing without sacrificing protection. These 8oz lotions are made with
the best ingredients (unrefined, organic, cold-pressed oils) in super small
batches made to-order. This buttery-smooth lotion will leave your skin
glistening beautifully and feeling super hydrated.
Many people use SunLover's Lotion as an everyday moisturizer as it can help
promote your skin's healing process! Every 8oz jar can last an entire summer
season (& then some!) depending on how often it is used - a little bit goes a
veryyy long way!
Don't forget - your skin is your body's largest organ! Make sure you're giving
it the protection and putting on ingredients it deserves!
