Now that the warm weather is officially here, many yoga classes have made their way to the great outdoors. While the feeling of standing in tadasana with the sun warming your face is almost transcendent, getting burnt is definitely torture – not to mention unsightly. Protect yourself before you wreck yourself with natural sunscreen that won't transfer toxic chemicals to your mat or make your hands slip in down dog.
These three yogi-approved sunscreens have got you covered:
Badger SPF 30+ Lightly Scented Sunscreen gives broad-spectrum protection using 18.75% zinc oxide and is safe to use on the whole family. The certified organic base is made with extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, jojoba and cocoa butter and lightly scented with lavender. The packaging is also BPA and phthalate-free and made from 50% recycled plastic.
For babies over six-months-old (and extra sensitive adults), Coola’s Baby SPF 50 Unscented Moisturizer uses plankton and organic beeswax to naturally boost SPF protection. Shea butter, sesame seed, avocado and evening primrose oils help keep baby’s skin as soft as the day it was born.
Aubrey Organics Natural Sun 30+ Green Tea contains 12% zinc oxide to protect from UVA and UVB rays and organic matcha green tea to protect from free radical damage caused by sun exposure. The vegan formula also includes organic jojoba and sunflower oils to help keep skin moisturized.
