The problem with sunscreen is that there’s no problem with sunscreen. Okay, let’s unpack that statement just a bit. Of course, there are sunscreens chalk-full of cancer-causing chemicals and coral reef killing ingredients. But thankfully, there are a growing number of sunscreens that are non-toxic and chemical-free. And, because you buy Honey Girl Organics, we’re gonna guess that in all likelihood, you would choose the later.
So again, there’s no problem with sunscreen. (The good kind at least). What is problematic is when we stop listening to our own bodies, disconnect from our own knowing, and give up taking responsibility for our own choices. More often than not, people put their faith in a number, SPF 15, 30 or 50, and leave it at that. There are so many factors to consider though. Here are just a few:
- What type of skin do you have?
- How much sunscreen should you apply?
- What conditions/elements are you exposing yourself to?
- When did you apply your sunscreen?
- When should you reapply?
These are all questions only you can answer. No one else is an expert on you. And don’t let anyone try to convince you otherwise.
Honey Girl Organics was founded by owners who took a path less traveled. “Clean, non-toxic, and organic” weren’t buzz words over a decade ago when they started HGO, but they were the motivation; the driving force by which the HGO skin care line was created.
Since that time many have joined that path and together 'green beauty' has grown into a movement. Thankfully, choices for clean, cruelty-free and non-toxic products have increased. And some companies have chosen to make sunscreens, most with SPFs on the label. Honey Girl Organics has chosen not to. This is one of many distinctions that make Honey Girl Organics unique. We’re still marching to the beat of a different drum. And, we encourage you to do the same. Your body has its own rhythm, listen to it. There’s no problem with sunscreens in and of themselves. The problem is letting an arbitrary number determine the amount of protection you will receive when that number does not take into consideration the elements, the time, conditions, but most of all--- YOU! And the reality is, it never will.
Honey Girl Organics offers you something different: The Protect Stick.
Protect is multi-purpose. It can be used at your discretion to protect against all the elements. Wind, weather, sun, water, pollution, whatever conditions you face, this stick will help protect you. It contains ingredients especially chosen to do just that. Uncoated Non-nano Zinc Oxide is known to filter out UV rays as well as heal chapped skin. Organic Raspberry Seed Oil is rich in vitamins A, C and E and helps boost the skin’s immunity. Also included is Organic Carrot Seed Oil-- a great antioxidant that prevents damage from free radicals. Organic Beeswax contains over 300 micronutrients and will help seal in moisture to the skin. And, Organic Shea Butter, an excellent emollient, conditions the skin; especially helpful in cold, dry wind and weather. The Honey Girl Organics Protect Stick is the latest addition to our skin care line; it’s unique formula will boost your skin’s ability to protect itself in all elements, in whatever conditions you face.
Honey Girl Organics will continue to provide you the purest skin care you’ll ever find. You can count on our products to be made with cruelty-free, non-toxic and organic ingredients sustainably sourced from nature. It’s our promise to you. All we ask in return is- you be true to you.
