You’re never too young or old to start your eco journey. As a parent you want to give your little ones only the best and with Loved by Nature you can. Loved by Nature brings you awesome natural, ethically sourced, and environmentally friendly products. Every product you find on the website has been carefully checked and given the Loved by Nature stamp of approval.
When starting an eco-journey don’t try change everything all at once because that could become extremely overwhelming, so pick a few things to focus on and change them first. A great start would be switching your beauty products, skincare and haircare.
What you put on your child’s skin or hair is important, you wouldn’t want to harm their delicate hair or sensitive skin by using products that are harmful not only to them but the environment too.
Living in a country where it’s sunny most of the year there is no doubt that you should be lotioning up with sunscreen especially in the hot summer months. Your sunscreen is one item you could easily switch on your eco journey. Equally important as wearing sunscreen, is knowing what’s in your sunscreen. Here are 3 must-have ingredients that make for a safe and effective sunscreen.
- Broad Spectrum Protection. Most dermatologists agree that sunscreens should contain protection from both UVA and UVB rays.
- Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30. An SPF 30 blocks 97% of the sun’s rays- that’s 30 times the protection than if you’d gone out with none at all. While higher SPF might add a bit more, nothing is 100%.
- Water resistance. If you’re going to swim or be active outside, then choose a water-resistant sunscreen and plan to reapply every 40-80 minutes.
We have a product that has all 3 must-haves and more. Introducing All Good a broad spectrum all-natural sunscreen range for both adults and kids, it’s available in SPF 30 and 50+, it is also water resistant, vegan and reef friendly. Unlike the nasty chemical-based sunscreens (which All Good is 100% free of) which protect by absorbing into your skin (and unfortunately, your body too), our mineral sunscreen sits on top of your skin and reflects the sun’s damaging rays, offering ‘Protection by Reflection’. The range comprises of mineral sunscreen Lotion, Butter stick, Spray, Sunscreen Butter and Lip Balm.
Another simple switch that you can make on your journey to an eco-friendlier sustainable lifestyle is relooking at your haircare products for yourself and your little one. Unfortunately, a lot of haircare products contain chemicals that don’t do our planet or you any good. This is why it’s a good idea to read the label before you buy any new products for yourself and your kids. Where possible, try switching harmful products for more eco-friendly ones, like Rock the Locks our natural range of hair products for kids, free from parabens, sulfates or phthalates. From delicious smelling shampoo and conditioners to glitter hairspray and detanglers, this alcohol-free range of hair care products is a safe choice for your child and our planet, and it will make washing or styling your littles one’s hair an activity you can look forward to.
