Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen Mineral Lotion SPF 30

It's hot out there  and we have plenty of Summer to go.  That means sunscreen is a must  and the stronger the better. I don't know about where  you live, but the sun here has been stronger than ever.

Australian Gold has a new formula out this year to help keep skin from the burn. It's also reef friendly, meaning the ingredients won't damage the oceans if you happen to be sunbathing in or on a beach area. It's scary and a shame how much damage is being done to coral reefs .

According to the EWG, an estimated 25 to 60 million bottles worth of sunscreen chemicals wash off into coral reef areas each year.  When we shower, these chemicals wash off our skin and can pollute wastewater that ends up in the ocean as well.( quote  from Australian Gold).  

The brand's  new Botanical Sunscreen Mineral Lotion comes in SPF 30 and 50 and is free of  Oxybenzone, Parabens, Phthalates, Petrolatum, PABA, SLS, Dyes and Oils.  It uses physical SPF with  titanium dioxide and zinc oxide  and  has vitamin E , kakadu plum for vitamin C  and red algae for vitamin A and amino acids. 

It's very light feeling lotion that doesn't feel greasy and  has a slight white cast at first that goes away once you fully rub it in.  Once on , you barely know it's there and it holds up well in water ( water resistant up to 80 minutes per label). 

Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen Mineral Lotion is $14.99; SPF30 -,   SPF , CVS, Walmart)
