At My Sunshine we are dedicated to sun protection and we formulate using only the finest quality healthy ingredients. We aim to protect you from both the sun and the environment whilst nourishing and repairing your skin. We follow all of the latest sunscreen research, and we remain convinced that our sunscreen is the safest for you and for the environment.
Some of the high quality ingredients which we use are...
Zinc oxide is a natural mineral sunscreen which sits on top of your skin, creating a physical barrier which reflects both UVA and UVB rays. It is absolutely fantastic and essential for your skin health. It is non irritating and has anti inflammatory and healing benefits.
Isoamyl p-methoxycinnamate is a naturally occurring UV filter. It is prepared from Cinnamic acid which is found in the leaves of the cinnamon tree. We are not aware of any reported skin reactions to it, and according to all the scientific evidence we have it has not been found to possess any oestrogenic properties.
Red raspberry seed oil and Sea buckthorn oil help protect your skin naturally from UV radiation. They have been used for centuries and are sourced from the berry fruit of each tree. They are packed with a unique combination of essential fatty acids, anti-inflammatory agents and antioxidants which support your skin health.
Green tea, Vitamin E and Olive oil are powerful antioxidants which provide additional environmental protection and help fight free radicals. They deliver a second line of defence against skin aging and are considered essential in helping to repair your skin.
Organic Aloe vera, Organic Coconut oil, Organic Shea butter and Chamomile are all key ingredients which will nourish your skin. Aloe Vera heals, soothes and moisturises your skin. It is also loaded with antioxidants. Coconut oil and shea butter are excellent moisturisers for your skin and also hold strong antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties. Chamomile is a miracle ingredient for your skin giving antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Dehydroacetic Acid and Benzyl Alcohol is the high quality preservative which we use. It is on the BioGro approved list, meaning it is the safest option for you, and we are delighted to use it.
Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate is a UVA filter which we use. It rates very well with the EWG, at a two rating, & is proven extremely safe worldwide.
