Let Goddess Garden Protect Your Sensitive Skin From Sun This Season
Here's a checklist of the issues I find with sunscreen for rosacea. Many ingredients make my skin itch. Sometimes, the itching is mild and easy to ignore. Other times, the itching is so bad that I can't stop from rubbing my skin. Oily sunscreens are just as bad. I find my skin breaks out if a sunscreen is too itchy.
Recent reports also point out that chemical sunscreens are damaging already fragile reef systems in our oceans. If that's not reason enough to switch to natural sunscreens, consider that natural sunblock like non-nano zinc is simply better for rosacea skin. I received a free trial of Goddess Garden to see what I think.
You need to protect your delicate skin from sun damage and skin cancer. If you've been avoiding using sunscreen because you have rosacea, I've been finding products that don't irritate my rosacea and offer great protection from UVA and UVB rays. Goddess Garden Organics Baby Natural Sunscreen is a superb product.
What's in Goddess Garden Baby?
Nothing in Goddess Garden is damaging to the environment. The ingredient list is:
- Zinc Oxide
- Organic Aloe
- Caprylhydroxamic Acid (a preservative derived from coconut oil)
- Organic Safflower Seed Oil
- Glycerin (moisturizing agent)
- Glyceryl Caprylate (moisturizing agent)
- Glyceryl Stearate Citrate (moisturizing agent)
- Organic Sunflower Seed Oil
- Polyhydroxystearic Acid (helps disperse the zinc)
- Sorbitan Oleate (moisturizing agent)
- Vitamin E
- Xanthan Gum (stabilizer)
Zinc is a powder. With the moisturizing agents and dispersing aids, the sunscreen is smooth and silky and spreads easily. It's not sticky like some sunscreens I've tried.
I traveled to Maine for part of the week. The weather was ideal. It was in the 60s and sunny every day, so I spent a lot of time outside on Wells Beach in the full sun. I never burned. Goddess Garden Organics also kept my skin from drying out in the salt air and wind. It's 30 SPF, so I applied it every hour to ensure I kept my skin protected.
We headed north to Portland for an outdoor lunch at a dog-friendly restaurant and made the trip to Mackworth Island for the mile-long island loop. Hours were spent in the sun and my skin stayed hydrated. By the end of the day, I hadn't burned at all. It was fantastic to have a product that protected well without irritating my rosacea.
