Product Notes:

Direct sunlight can cause sunburn, premature aging of the skin, and skin cancer, which can all be guarded against with the proper use of sunscreens and protective clothing.

Choosing a safe and effective sunscreen can be more challenging than you think. As you survey the sunscreens in the aisle, take into consideration your prospective product’s active ingredients, sun protection factor, and water resilience. The Mayo Clinic advises you to first look for a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection against ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays that can damage your skin.

Sunscreens fall into two categories. Physical sunscreens like these ones contain the ingredients zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, both of which offer broad-spectrum protection. When applied, a physical sunscreen acts as a barrier between your skin and the UV rays. Chemical sunscreens contain ingredients such as avobenzone, and oxybenzone, among many others, that absorb the sun's rays before they reach your skin and transform it into heat, but the chemicals themselves may irritate the eyes and the skin, and these types tend to need to be applied more often than the mineral types if when in the direct sun.

Green Beaver sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection (against both UVA and UVB). It's fragrance free, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. All their ingredients are of natural origin; and over half of the cream's ingredients are Certified Organic, including the extract of Canadian Raspberries, which is rich in antioxidants. There are no unwanted ingredients such as chemical preservatives, dyes or synthetic fragrances in this product.

This purely Canadian product is easy to apply, and has a non-chalky texture. It is all Vegan (with no testing on animals) and Non-nano (its active ingredients are not small enough to enter the bloodstream).

This SPF 40 cream lotion version is also water- and sweat-resistant, for up to 40 minutes.
