Sunscreen is something I am a big advocate of and although I’ve already found “The One” it happens to be so pricey that I’m open to trying more affordable options. One that I came across quite recently after reading some raves for it from VivaWoman was this from the Badger Company. Yes, the same company that gave us the Badger Balms.
I’m not usually fussy about using natural or organic skincare but it is worth mentioning for anyone who is concerned, that the Badger Aloe Vera Broad Spectrum SPF30 Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Lotion is a certified natural and organic sunscreen with very high zinc oxide in its formula, which makes it a physical sunscreen. Zinc Oxide is known to be among the best, if not the best UVA and UVB blocker out there, blocking both harmful UV rays.
I was rather concerned about this high zinc oxide content, because I’m one of the rare people I know who actually breaks out from products with high zinc oxide content. It’s part of the reason why I cannot use many physical sunscreens. Titanium Dioxide is fine, but zinc oxide turns my skin into a mess. Yet, I was curious to see if this might work for me.
