HAVE YOU SWITCHED TO SAFER SUNSCREEN?
You may have seen in the news that Chemical Sunscreen is finally being questioned for it’s safety!! According to ABC News:
"The FDA announced Thursday that it has proposed a rule to declare mineral sunscreen ingredients as safe, specifically zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. The agency said 12 other chemicals commonly used in sunscreens need more research to determine if they're can be officially listed as safe, including oxybenzone and octinoxate." You can read the full article here.
PLEASE check your sunscreen for the harmful chemicals mentioned above if you haven't switched to Beautycounter's Safer Mineral Sunscreen!!
MINERAL VS CHEMICAL SUNSCREEN
Chemical Sunscreens are technically sun filters. The vast majority of sunscreens on the market contain chemical sunscreen ingredients like avobenzone, oxybenzone or octocrylene. They’re called sun filters because they absorb the sun’s UV energy and release it back into the air as heat. They are popular because they provide easy, transparent blendability into the skin. But, at Beautycounter, we prohibit chemical filters due to their potential for skin irritation.
Mineral Sunscreens (physical sunscreens) are Beautycounter’s preferred sunscreen technology. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are physical particles that sit on the surface of the skin and scatter or reflect sun’s rays away from the skin. Mineral sunscreens are great for people with sensitive skin.
NEW COUNTERSUN PRODUCTS
Beautycounter just added two new products to it's Countersun Collection! The collection now includes a lotion, mist, sunstick, tinted mists and aftersun cooling gel!!
Tinted Mineral Mist - Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and California Poppy, this innovative physical SPF 30 formula provides an effective shield from UVA and UVB rays while the tint helps camouflage imperfections and even skin tone. It provides a natural finish for darker skin tones and reduced chalky cast. It is also great for paler skin tones that want to get glowing ahead of the beach day. Think of this like makeup for the body that also smells amazing! Shades: Light/Medium and Medium/Deep
Aftersun Cooling Gel - This essential after-sun gel cools on contact to help soothe skin irritation and boost hydration with a safer, lightweight formula. With aloe, sea kelp, and California Poppy extract, the formula helps calm skin after a day in the sun. The tropical smell of this gel is amazing! It reminds me of the old school Hawaiian Tropic oil!!
SUMMER MUST HAVES
Overnight Resurfacing Peel is one of my favorite products!! I am using it more regularly right now to slough of my winter dry skin! It contains 15 fruit acids that basically exfoliate your skin while you sleep without irritation and actual peeling. It will leave your skin glowing and the results it is having on brown spots and acne scarring is amazing!
Dew Skin is a must as we head into the summer months! It's a lightly tinted moisturizer with SPF 20. It provides sheer coverage that can be worn alone or under makeup for a luminous dewy glow. It also includes black currant, peony flower root extract, and vitamin C to enhance skin brightness and sodium hyaluronate to promote firmer, smoother-looking skin.
Flawless in Five - is perfect for anyone looking to refresh their makeup. It's a customizable bundle of six products to have you looking flawless in five minutes or less! PLUS you save $37 by bundling rather than buying everything separately!
