Mad Hippie’s chemical-free, all natural 30+ Facial SPF utilizes zinc oxide – the safest and most natural physical blocking agent available. Combined with naturally photoprotective oils, red raspberry seed oil, avocado oil & carrot seed oil, plus vitamin C + Vitamin E + Ferulic acid, this hydrating blend offers broad-range antioxidant protection from photoaging. What does âChemical Freeâ mean? There are two types of sunscreens: 1. Chemical blocking2. Physical blocking The majority of sunscreens sold in the US today are chemical blocking. The main ingredient in most of these sunscreens is oxybenzone, or a variety of other related chemicals. Oxybenzone, and many of its offshoots, are known endocrine disruptors that absorb through the skin and into the body mimicking the effects of estrogen. The CDC estimates some 97% of American’s bodies are now tainted with oxybenzone. These chemicals are also wreaking havoc on our lakes and oceans, causing issues that weâve yet to fully understand. Additionally, free radicals are a byproduct of exposing chemical UV absorbers to sunlight. Free radical damage is a major cause of skin aging and skin related health problems.While chemical sunscreens feel great on the skin as they rub in easily, the health effects of these chemicals should cause concern for consumers. Zinc oxide on the other hand is a naturally occurring mineral that creates a thin protective layer over the skin, reflecting UV rays that look to damage the skin. Mad Hippie’s Facial SPF uses a non-nano, micronized zinc that rubs in very clear for zinc oxide. Mad Hippie recommends layering it over their Antioxidant Facial Oil for added protection and to help the product rub in even clearer. Ingredient Highlights:Zinc Oxide – The gold standard for natural SPF protection, we use an all natural, micronized, nano-free zinc oxide that goes on clear and leaves no white residue. Red Raspberry Seed Oil – Rich in omega 3 & omega 6 fatty acids, red raspberry seed oil provides natural antioxidant photoprotection while soothing and moisturizing the skin.Avocado Oil – Containing a variety of monounsaturated fats & naturally occurring vitamin E, avocado oil forms a protective barrier over the skin that helps protect against photoaging, while it naturally hydrates and soothes.Carrot Seed Oil – This soothing antioxidant oil with photoprotective properties.Vitamin C + Vitamin E + Ferulic Acid – The same photoprotective powerhouse combo found in our vitamin C serum.Shea Butter â Prized in Africa for centuries for its moisturizing and soothing qualities, shea butter is a rich source of the powerful antioxidants vitamin A & E, as well as crucial fatty acids, important in retaining skin elasticity.Jasmine Oil – Shown to have an uplifting, energizing, aromatherapeutic effect, jasmine oil helps to balance moisture and aid in elasticity.Sodium Hyaluronate â The salt of hyaluronic acid (HA), sodium hyaluronate has been shown to have better skin penetrating capabilities than HA alone.
