Soleo Organics Natural Sunscreen

In the last few years, we have been bombarded with reports of skin cancer and the many dangers of the sun. We were instructed to wear SPF 30 anywhere we went in order to help protect ourselves, our body. So, sunscreen sales and products that contained sunscreen (moisturizers, lotions, etc.) skyrocketed. One would assume that if the sunscreen (that's supposed to protect us) sales went up, cases of skin cancer would decrease. Unfortunately, this is not and was not the case. Instead, the incidence of skin cancer in the United States has tripled in recent years.

There is good reason to be concerned about skin cancer - but most sunscreen products do more harm than good. In fact, many sunscreens actually contain suspected carcinogens (which can cause cancer). Wait, did you hear that? Some sunscreens could actually CAUSE skin cancer because of their ingredients.

Soleo Organics Natural Sunscreen is an all natural alternative to the common synthetic sunscreens (what you find at Target and Walmart). It's safe for all skin types, and for any age...even babies and pregnant mothers! Which means that you no longer need to lug around that 40lb beach bag with 10 different sunscreens for every body part and skin type and age group. Now, you can head to the beach with ONE tube of sunscreen that's safe for the entire family!

Soleo Organics Natural Sunscreen uses only organic or naturally sourced ingredients and uses patented nanofine zinc technology that won't leave your skin white. This sunscreen has a broadspectrum SPF30+ and is 3 hr water resistant.

If you plan to be in the sun this summer, you will definitely want to check out Soleo Organics.
