Mineral Sunscreen: A Safe, Effective Option

  • Topic Info:Your skin is your body's largest organ, and it absorbs much of the topical items you apply to it.

    This includes sunscreens, which are an essential preventative measure to ward of skin cancer. Unfortunately, conventional sunscreens contain dangerous chemical ingredients that can alter the body's systemic processes.

    A healthier option is a mineral-based sunscreen. One brand that has worked tirelessly to make sunscreens safer is Goddess Garden. The company's sunscreens are all certified organic, free from hormone disruptors and harsh chemicals, and safe, effective and gentle on your skin.

    Listen in as Nova Covington, founder of Goddess Garden Organics, explains the dangers of conventional sunscreens, as well as safer options. She also shares information on some of the new products the company will be releasing in 2019.

    The Roots of Goddess Garden Organics
    Goddess Garden Organics was founded by husband and wife team Nova Covington and Paul Halter after their daughter had a serious reaction to conventional skin care products. Nova, with an herbalist background and Paul with a nutrition science degree were inspired to develop safe skincare solutions using the pure minerals of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the active ingredients for sun protection.
