Block Island is on a mission to provide organic sunscreen. Regular sunscreens use questionable ingredients to stop the harmful rays of the sun. Block island uses mostly certified organic ingredients that can fully protect you from UVA & UVB rays without causing health issues. Protecting your skin from the sun is their secret to having healthy skin.
Even though the summer is ending, I still crave time in the sun. I love the feel of the sun on my skin, it just is so relaxing. The down side to spending time in the sun is obviously getting a sun burn but also harmful rays on my skin. So I was thrilled to try Block Island Organic sunscreen and lotions.
I learned something while browsing Block Island’s website. I learned how to find a good sunscreen. Normally, I just find a good brand with 30 spf and call it a day. But what I didn’t know was “UVB rays cause sunburn and skin cancer while UVA rays cause skin aging and skin cancer”. Wow! Isn’t that interesting. Simply having an SPF of 30 or more will not stop skin aging or skin cancers. UVB rays are stopped with an SPF but not UVA. I am just floored by this information. All these years I thought it was simple, put on sunscreen and protect your skin.
You really need a “Broad Spectrum” sunscreen so that it will protect your skin from all of the rays that can be harmful.
I am happy to look for the right kind of sunscreen now. I will make sure to use Block Island Sunscreen because it has an SPF of 30 or more. It also says “broad spectrum”. Now I know that these two very important terms will help me protect my skin the right way.
Even though the hot summer sun is behind us, we still need to protect our skin all year round. I was very happy with both of these sunscreens from Block Island and thrilled that they protect my skin the right way.
Did you know that? Did you know that an SPF only protects your skin from UVB rays?
