Block Island Organics Mineral Suncare Review
Block Island Organics sunscreens are non-toxic mineral based (zinc and titanium), as opposed to chemical based, and include a Baby SPF 30 (this product is zinc only), an SPF 15, SPF 30 and SPF 40 product. Block Island Organics products are non-comedogenic, vegan formulated, paraben free, phthalate free, nano particle free, artificial fragrance free, non-eye irritating, not tested on animals, made in the USA and highly rated by the Environmental Working Group. That was a mouthful but you can tell that Block Island Organics does its best to provide the most natural, effective suncare available. Because it is organic and non nano it is a eco-friendly sunscreen as well.
We tried the Natural Organic Mineral Sunscreen SPF 15 for review. I found it to be just as effective as any other sunscreen and it was mild on our skin and did not cause breakouts even on my son’s sensitive skin. It also absorbed into our skin very well. I like knowing that it is organic, vegan, PARABEN FREE,PHTHALATE FREE and non-nano. I dig that it provides hours of all natural, highly effective broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It is water resistant for 40 Minutes. I am totally happy with the Block Island Organics Natural Organic Mineral Sunscreen SPF 15 and I would suggest it to my friends and family.
We also tried the Sunburn Relief After Sun Gel for review. I am so glad we had this on hand because my sister got totally burned before I saw her and she was starting to blister and itch. I rubbed the Sunburn Relief After Sun Gel on her and she said it was very cooling and relieved her itch. It was an aloe vera gel texture and it includes natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, cucumber, and vitamin E to rehydrate and combat free radical damage leaving the skin feeling moisturized and not sticky. It also has lidocaine, one of the safest proven sunburn relief ingredients on the market. Very handy to have around to rehydrate skin and relieve burns.
