There’s a palpable energy in the air the temperatures in Newport have flirted with near beach weather. This past Sunday, it was delightful I actually needed sunscreen to work in the garden, and I reached for something new. If you’re someone who likes to know a bit about what ingredients go in and on your body, turn over your standard bottle or can of sunscreen. There’s not a lot of things you can pronounce. And if you really want to know what it all means, plug you product name into the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database, where you can see where it rates in terms of dangerous ingredients.
So I tried for the first time ever Block Island Organics natural mineral based sunscreen for face and body. Lightweight, water resistant and non-comedogenic, the sunscreen is instantly absorbing as you rub it on your skin and is safe for sensitive skin. I’ve tried Ava Anderson Non-Toxic sunscreen before and to be honest, the consistency was very think, almost like toothpaste, and as much as I tried, it still left heavy white streaks on my skin.
Block Island Organics was founded by brother and sister team Lauren and Will Bernuth. Lauren is also the founder of Koru Eco Spa on Block Island. The fabulous spa is where she helped formulate this awesome brand which is committed to ingredient safety, which is proven with a glowing rating on the EWG Skin Deep scale.
