To fully enjoy the nice weather, it is better to protect your skin effectively. Indeed, you do not want to lose a precious day or hour because of a sunburn or an insect bite. On the other hand, you do not want to anoint you with substances that are at least as dangerous as what you want to protect yourself from. So here are five products that protect you without harming your health.

Natural sunscreens

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, the ultraviolet (UV) rays emanating from the sun and the artificial tan are the second most important risk factors for skin cancer. In addition, excessive exposure to the sun can cause sunburn, eye damage and early formation of wrinkles. However, synthetic chemicals such as oxybenzone or octinoxate and avobenzone commonly used in sunscreen products are suspected of disrupting hormone function and increasing the risk of cancer. To take no chances, it is better to use sunscreens made of natural ingredients.

The All Good SPF 30 Sports Sunscreen Spray protects you effectively , without exposing you to the harmful chemical ingredients that other sunscreens contain. It contains no toxins, neither for your body nor for the oceans.
