Community Pharmacy staff share their favorite sun care products.
EveryDay Coconut SPF 15 Daily Face Lotion
Ellie exclaims, “This is my new favorite facial sunscreen! It’s moisturizing, lightweight, and provides adequate sun protection for everyday use. The ingredients are so clean you could practically eat them (though I wouldn’t advise it). Plus, the fresh coconut smell makes me feel like I’m at the beach all summer long! ” EveryDay Coconut is an extension of Alaffia Sustainable Skin Care and EveryDay Shea. Alaffia was founded by Olowo-n’djo Tchala, a Togolese native, as a way to generate funds to conduct community enhancement projects in his home country and other West African nations in order to reduce poverty and gender inequality. $8.95
Herb Pharm St. John’s Wort Oil
Bryn says, “A lesser known remedy for sunburn, but one of my favorites, is St. John’s Wort oil. This soothing oil brings relief to chapped, irritated skin and mild burns. St. John’s Wort nourishes nerves and stimulates blood circulation, making it a great topical healing aid.” Herb Pharm is committed to providing the highest quality herbal products possible, educating people on the safe and effective use of medicinal herbs, and inspiring a love for plants and Mother Nature. $11.70
100% Pure Argan Oil SPF 30 Facial Moisturizer
According to Alex, “Not only does this all natural moisturizer provide broad spectrum sun protection, blocking out both burning UVB and aging UVA rays, it’s also packed with nourishing ingredients like aloe and argan oil as well protective antioxidants. And I find that the zinc oxide, while slightly whitening, really helps minimize my pores. Bonus!” 100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins. $23.25
