Healthy Radiant Face ft. Suntegrity Skincare

Sunscreen is and has always been my #1 beauty product. I wear it every single day (even during the winter months) whether or not I wear makeup. Protecting your skin is important for a number of reasons. It prevents sun spots, discoloration and slows down the aging process but most importantly, it helps prevent skin cancer also known as Melanoma.

I was shocked and disgusted when I found out the product I had been using to protect me was actually hurting me in the long run. When I scanned my beloved Eucerin sunscreen, it scored a solid 10 on the Think Dirty App, which means that it is filled with carcinogens.

Carcinogens = cancer causing

Of course, I dumped it immediatly. I used the App to help me find a healthier brand…alas ‘Suntegrity’ Skincare. Suntegrity is a natural, healthy, holistic mineral sun care line.

Suntegrity Face and Body SPF 30 products use only the best known physical block ingredient (non-nano size zinc oxide) to provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and super anti-oxidants and amino acids to enhance that protection and help with skin repair. Our products use non-toxic preservatives to maintain their integrity without sacrificing safety or health. Our company was awarded “Champion” Status by the EWG/Compact for Safe Cosmetics” – Tricia at SuntegritySkinCare.com

I found Suntegrity at The Detox Market in Los Angeles, but it is also available online through their website (here) and on Amazon.com. It is a bit pricey, but you only need a small amount to cover your entire face. The thing I love about it most, it’s not greasy. It’s a bit thicker so it takes longer to rub in, but once it’s on your skin, it does not make you oily. And as I always say…”there’s no price on health.”

Pros:

  • Safe, non-toxic
  • Smells great (a faint citrus smell)
  • Not greasy
  • A little goes a long way
  • Cruelty-free

Cons:

  • A bit expensive ($45 for 1.7 oz)

The line also carries several other healthy sun care products for the body which I hope to try and review soon! Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite non-toxic beauty brands.IMG_3514

    This inspired me to start taking care of my skin; easier to prevent then it is to fix, right? I just started using Aveeno CC moisturizer and it looks and FEELS good. Do you know anything about this product?

    • Hey! Such a late response! I’m not TOO familiar with it, but I try to stick to buying products at Whole Foods or other organic health retailers. As a good rule of thumb, I like to use the “ThinkDirty” App to scan products. I wrote a blog on that as well. Hope all is well!
