Our TOP 5 easiest safe summer product swap
1) Beautycounter Sunscreen
Most commercial sunscreens contain oxybenzone or benzophenone-3, which has been linked to allergies, hormone disruption and cell damage. The Environmental Working Group has found that 4 out of 5 name-brand sunscreen products either contain harmful ingredients or offer inadequate protection. Beautycounter’s sunscreen products are made with non-nano zinc oxide, which is an effective mineral that reflects UV light rays. It comes in a cream, a body stick, a face stick, and a lip balm. They also make a fabulous tinted moisturizer called Dew Skin, which contains SPF. Buy now for $45.

When you need a refreshing cool down, spray Cleerlife’s Cooling Mist on your face, neck – anywhere – for immediate relief. Formulated with the purest peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils, this mist cools your body down immediately. Buy now for $12.

5) Schmidt’s Deodorant
We do not want people running away from your odor, but mainstream deodorants contain aluminum, preservatives, solvents and fragrances that can be absorbed through your underarm tissue and can be very dangerous to your long-term health. We have tried many different types of deodorants and right now, our favorite is Schmidt’s Naturals. Their award-winning formula helps neutralize odor naturals. Their plant-based powders help absorb wetness without the use of aluminum. Their products are also free of propylene glycol, parabens & phthalates.They are scented with essential oils and contain no artificial fragrance. We love the Bergamot + Lime and the Cedarwood + Juniper. But we want to try them all! Buy now for $8.99.
