Sunscreen for babies.... really?

Posted on August 19, 2015 by Polly Glasse | 0 comments
I was clicking through big name brands of sunscreen. I came across this one for babies.  Sounds like it's not so good for anyone, much less a baby. Please read your labels. Do not be fooled by terms such as "all natural, natural botanicals, naturally derived," etc. This has no guarantee that the product you are purchasing is actually natural as you think it is or should be. The first ingredient in this formulation is Retinyl Palmitate. The FDA did a year-long study a short while ago. They found this ingredient in 40% of the sunscreens on the market. They determined this ingredient actually caused skin cancer tumors.  Really... in a sunscreen for babies, much less?  This is also a very common ingredient in anti-aging products for women.

This formula uses nature's ingredients that help our body rather than the sugar and commercial electrolytes that are on the market. I've found great results and very quickly, in the way I feel during and after.

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 big pinches or organic sea salt
  • mix into 1/4 cup hot water to melt the honey

Happy Spring Everyone!

Each season we experience changes in weather, pollinating insects, heat, cold, water, etc. I'm moved to write this blog because we just received new shipment of pure, yellow beeswax. It has a warm, honey smell. This time the color is dark yellow.  (and that's just ONE of the ingredient we use)

Cross Training Hand Care

Kettle Bell Hands

Let us get real for a moment; lifting and gymnastics are hardcore. As with any heavy duty workout; it will take awhile for the hands to toughen. Therefore, in the meantime you might experience torn or flayed skin. Also, even seasoned Cross Trainers might on a rare occasion end up with bloodied hands because of the intensity of the workout, et cetera. However, have no fear because the solution is quite simple.
