Summertime is almost here, time to get prepared for your adventures with just the right summer gear.
The closer we get to three months of prime beach weather the better to be prepared. Each season we have felt strongly about preparing for the best measure of protection from the beaming sun. A week long of enjoying Hawaii’s coral reefs and shoreside tanning sessions would be a dream, but never forget the importance of sun protection during your trip.
NEVER underestimate the power of sunscreen; it’s important to remain consistent with your sunscreen application for happier and healthier skin.
Chemical sunscreen formulas are toxic to our health whereas mineral sunscreens have a long-term and beneficial effect. The issue with today’s sunscreens is that many of them contain harmful chemicals that are exceedingly damaging, especially to sensitive skin. If this is a concern for you, but you don’t want to risk skipping your daily sunscreen step, then we have the right sunscreen for you.
As an addition to our organic collection, BeachCandy Swimwear now carries the brand new LA Sol #1 Non-Toxic Mineral Sunscreen. With clean and vegan-based ingredients, this LA Sol non-toxic mineral sunscreen will provide you with all of your sun protection needs without hurting your skin barrier or overall health.

Necessity items should not have to contain any chemically dangerous ingredients that could cause harm to your body and health. Sunscreen should be something that we rely on and are confident to use on a daily basis. This is where we can draw the line between chemical and natural sunscreens.
Although both can get the job done, one will leave more negative effects and the other will leave positive effects in the long run.
As we venture onto an organic and sustainable route, BeachCandy Swimwear is determined to take every step closer to contributing positively to our community through our organic collection. The LA Sol #1 Non-Toxic Mineral Sunscreen is one of the many steps that we’re taking to make this shift possible.

Understanding Mineral Sunscreen
Mineral sunscreen is a simple, gentle, and natural-ingredient form of sunscreen that places a strong barrier against UV rays. Generally, the ingredients in mineral sunscreens are better for those prone to sensitive skin and for the environment. This option of a natural sunscreen ideally permits a sustainable method of reaching healthy wellness goals to a person’s daily life.
Our rule for skincare, if we can't eat it's ingredients we shouldn't be putting it on our porous skin which then enters the bloodstream. This is why we choose this mineral sunscreen over any chemical offering.
A mineral-based sunscreen is a great option to adapt to when searching for the perfect sunscreen to apply on a daily basis.
Traditional mineral sunscreens can be detected by their prevalent white cast and LA Sol does an amazing job with its silky sheer texture so that the sunscreen can appear much more concealed within all skin tones.
The Better of the Two: Chemical vs. Natural
When determining which options to choose from for any of your skincare products, be sure to do so with cautious awareness in what it is that you’re actually buying.
Sunscreen is one of the most essential steps to your routine. It is especially important to protect your skin from UV rays in warmer climates where the sun is always out. Especially when vacationing in a warmer climate with a hot sun beaming on you every day, sunscreen protection is a definite necessity. Take into consideration the differences between a chemical and natural sunscreen.
Ask yourself: what exactly fits your standards as the best qualities in a sunscreen product?
Why to Avoid Chemical Sunscreen?
Chemical sunscreens are extremely harmful to your skin as they threaten to cause some sort of hormone disruption to the body. Issues from chemical-based sunscreen lotions will range from skin irritation to cancer. The possibilities of health issues are endless when one uses chemical sunscreens. Although they provide short-term sun protection, the chemicals may seep into harsh long-term effects.
Chemical sunscreens have ingredients that are absorbed by the body, heightening the concentration level of those chemicals in the body. Instances such as this can severely harm the body. The various ingredients combined can hurt the user as the product works to activate in protecting the skin from the sun but doing so with a major cost.
Although claiming to protect the skin, the skin can be in for more damage caused by the chemicals from the sunscreen. Harmful ingredients such as oxybenzone octinoxate are used in sunscreens to absorb UV rays, yet are found in the aftermath as high levels of skin discomfort shown from the usage. Ultimately, chemical-based sunscreens are toxic and dangerous, but the good news is that there are many natural alternatives for you to choose
The Benefits of Natural Sunscreen...
Natural sunscreens are a more conscious choice as they work as a protectant through-and-through with their journey in establishing a shielding sun protectant base. Natural sunscreen is healthier for human application. It helps by acting positively with effects in sunscreen. The following qualities are that it acts sensitively on reactive skin, has no absorption into the skin, and most importantly there’s no toxicity.
Mineral sunscreens are simple to where they create a physical barrier between your skin and the sun. This is one of many reasons why non-toxic mineral sunscreens have the most protection in addition to no health risks form the inacitve ingredients that are used in the sunscreen. For example, an active ingredient in mineral sunscreen like nano zinc oxide will not cause a pierce into the skin to get to the body’s bloodstream.
Mineral based sunscreens are the better option because they offer real and natural protection from the sun. You won’t have to raise any concerns about the ingredients and how they play a part in the state of your skin. For safe and FDA approved active ingredients, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the two that are best used for natural sunscreen.
