Summer is quickly approaching and in its honor we are featuring natural options for sunscreen and self tanners. There was a study done by the Environmental Working Group which showed that many of the most popular sunscreens on the market are actually harmful to consumers, many of them contain ingredients that are considered unsafe such as dioxybenzone and oxybenzone. Check out this website to find out which ingredients to avoid:

Alba Botanica Sunless Tanner
This natural self tanner uses shea butter, calendula and green tea to moisturize and provide a healthy glow. This is a favorite of our clients who are looking for a natural healthy glow but they did say that if you want a darker looking tan this product isn't for you. It also takes about 24 hours to really notice the change.
