As summer is quick approaching the product on most parents’ minds is ‘Sunscreen’, especially for those whose kids (like mine) would rather eat ‘broccoli-flavoured ice cream’ than wear a sun hat (if only they would keep the damn hat on! )
In any case, hat or no hat, sun-screen is super important to avoid sun-burn, skin damage, irritation and long-term risks on our children’s skin.
It is a fact that the minute we become parents, like it or not, most of us tend to suddenly become MORE wary of what is actually inside the products we use on ourselves and more specifically on our precious children.
For this reason we were reading up about the different sunscreen products available on the market, and came across a new product launched locally from the organic cosmetic brand Organii EVERYDAY ORGANICS. Apart from the qualities of the product itself, we love the fact that the brand uses ethical manufacturers who share its passion for all things natural and organic.
Why this sunscreen?
So what other things do we love about Organii? We have listed 8 reasons why we (and other parents) are raving about this product.
1. MINERAL VS CHEMICAL:
It is a mineral product as opposed to a chemical one.
Mineral (or physical ) sunscreens simply form a ‘shield’ on top of the skin which deflect the sun’s rays away, unlike chemical sunscreen which penetrates the skin, this creates a chemical reaction and works by changing UV rays into heat, then releasing that heat from the skin.
Chemical products tend to be more irritating to the skin and may cause allergic reactions whilst mineral sun-care products such as Organii are generally safe to use on delicate skin, in fact one of the main ingredients is also used in nappy rash creams.
4. UVA + UBV PROTECTION
It contains natural UVA and UVB absorbers and SPF boosters such as Pongamia glabra seed oil, commonly known as Karanja Oil which is used to treat eczema, psoriasis, skin ulcers, and dandruff and to promote wound healing.
5. WORKS IMMEDIATELY
Mineral sunscreens like Organii work immediately meaning kids can go and enjoy the sun immediately after application. On the other hand other chemical sunscreens take around 20 minutes to start working and require regular re-application.
Where can I get the product from?
The product can be found in pharmacies and top health retailers across Malta and Gozo. If you cannot find the product, or would like more information, contact Martina at MINT, the local distributors of Organii products via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or on +356 79302440.
