True Natural: All Natural SPF 50 Broad Spectrum Sunscreens {Giveaway}

True Naturals

New FDA regulations regarding sunscreen UVA testing are now taking effect, requiring any sunscreen claiming to protect against UVA to prove it. According to the new regulations only products that pass a rigorous  UVA testing can be labeled “Broad Spectrum”.

Summer is officially here and I am pleased to introduce you to a new line of True Natural Broad Spectrum SPF50 Sunscreens.  They offer maximum UVA & UVB protection and exceed the FDA requirements. By using them as directed, these sunscreens can help reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging.

I had a chance to try both the True Natural  Broad Spectrum SPF50 Baby & Sensitive Skin (unscented) sunscreen lotion and the Broad Spectrum SPF50 Limited Edition (Vanilla-Cocounut) sunscreen spray and I have been using them for a few weeks.

The first thing that I love about True Natural sunscreens is that they are natural and free of harmful ingredients.  They are 100% mineral based using nano-free, 200nm+ zinc oxide particles.

They are definitively different from all other natural zinc-oxide based sunscreens we have tried before as there is no thick,  white, greasy film left on the skin. True Natural sunscreens are super light and non-greasy.

I used the unscented sunscreen lotion on my son’s skin and the scented spray on my own skin.  I just loved how they both leave our skin feeling smooth and  never greasy. They are also super easy to apply and truly invisible!

I will continue to use True Natural Sunscreen lotions/sprays for my family. They keep our skin protected, they are renewable, use non-toxic ingredients,  and they are biodegradable.

    I learned that besides the new UVA regulations that you mentioned in your post, terms like “waterproof” and “sweat proof” will no longer be permitted on sunscreen labels, as the FDA sees these claims as misleading. The new terms will be “water resistant” and “very water resistant” and that water resistance claims on product labels must state how long the user can expect the specified SPF protection to hold up while swimming or sweating.

    TRUE’s 100% natural sunscreens are mineral-based, offering numerous advantages over chemical-based alternatives. Mineral sunscreens build a physical protective layer on the skin’s surface, providing immediate protection against UVA and UVB rays. Synthetic sunscreens, on the other hand, are absorbed into the skin and body and take 20-30 minutes to shield skin

    Because the sunscreen is made from minerals, it sits on the surface of the skin and doesn’t get absorbed. It starts to work immediately not after 20 or so minutes like non-mineral products
