A Breakdown of Harmful Suncare
Sapphire Beach Company: Ethically Sourced
Many ordinary sunscreens and tanning oils contain UV filtering chemicals, rather than mineral UV filters such as Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide. UV filtering chemicals can penetrate your skin & enter your bloodstream, disrupting the natural balance of your body.
