GO AHEAD, BASK IN THE SUMMER SUN

It’s prime time to be outside enjoying the summer sun – but NOT without your best all-natural sun defense. And what better to pair it with than some PureJojoba to keep dry skin at bay?!

Sun protection that’s considered truly chemical-free contains one of two ingredients – zinc oxide or titanium dioxide – as their active ingredients, or sometimes both. Our picks are not only good for your skin but better for the environment too.

So what ingredients do you want to avoid when choosing a sunscreen? Oxybenzone and octinoxate are chemicals found in many non-mineral sunscreens that can damage coral reefs. Hawaii even passed a bill banning the sale and distribution of sunscreens with these ingredients last year, which is set to go into effect in 2021.

The good news is there are plenty of options to get covered without harming the environment. Here are our top picks to pair with PureJojoba and protect your skin (plus the coral reefs!) throughout the summer.
