Making your own sunscreen can be super easy to do! While it can be more convenient to just buy a clean mineral sunscreen it can come with a price tag that some would prefer not to spend. Whipping up a batch of sunscreen is cost effective and beneficial for your skin. I decided to make my own natural sunscreen last year and it was the best thing that I ever did because I know the exact ingredients that I am putting on my skin. This diy natural sunscreen gave me great sun protection without the white cast on my skin and it nourished my skin at the same time.
Mainstream sunscreens can come with a hefty chemical ingredient list which is certainly not good for you and your endocrine system. Some ingredients I avoid when purchasing a sunscreen are oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, octocrylene, octisalate, and retinyl palmitate (just to name a few). It is important to know what you are putting on your body because your skin is the largest organ. Everything that you apply to your skin will penetrate into your body and disrupt your system.
