Safe sun care for all | PCC Natural Markets

Safe sun care for all


Protecting your skin from the sun is key during the summertime, and it's possible to do so without having to cover yourself in chemical-laden cream. We have a variety of sun care products made with all-natural ingredients that are safe for the whole family. Most of these sunscreens use zinc oxide as a base, a mineral that provides broad-spectrum protection against UVB and UVA rays. In addition, you'll find ingredients like green tea (a powerful antioxidant) and organic shea butter, aloe vera and jojoba oils that help moisturize, soften and soothe your skin.

With sun care products from Aubrey Organics, Badger, California Baby, Goddess Garden and True Natural Suncare, you're sure to find a sunscreen that's just right for you at PCC. Choose from sunscreen that's specifically designed for active lifestyles, for children, for those who need a scent-free option and for those who spend a lot of time in the water.

More ways to protect your skin

In addition to using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, there are several other measures you can take to ensure you keep your skin well protected.

What SPF should I use?

SPF — sun protection factor — is used to measure a product's ability to protect against sunburn.

While most people assume an SPF 50 offers significantly more protection than an SPF 30, the scale is not that linear.

While SPF 15 can provide 93 percent protection from the sun, SPF 30 only protects a little more at about 97 percent. An SPF 50 to 60 shuts out 98 percent.

Rather, if a product is applied correctly, an SPF of 15 to 25 is all that's needed to protect a person from sunburn.
