It’s the science we used to develop our sunscreen that showed us exactly why the typical store bought sunscreens and sprays are doing more harm than good! According to The Environmental Working Group’s latest sunscreen study, almost 75% of products aren’t providing the protection they say, or are using nasty ingredients to cheaply boost effectiveness.1
Chemicals like Oxybenzone and retinol palmitate are both harmful to your skin and hormones. This same study exposed that half of the 750 products they reviewed contained these chemicals. These chemicals have been found to potentially create free radicals after they have been absorbed by your skin, and free radicals cause DNA damage in your skin leading to cancer, something the sunscreen si designed to prevent in the first place...
On the other hand you can find natural sunscreens that do not use harsh chemicals, and 99% are based on Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide, these are great for natural sun protection, however most women and men end up buying and not using them, once you discover that these natural sunscreens leave heavy white residue and can not be used when going out to most public places, weddings, brunch and lunch, pool parties etc... These are mostly used for surfing or when you are at the beach and don't expect to spend much time interacting with others, due to the heavy white residue.
SRI Sunscreen on the other hand was formulated with the newest and safest technology that allows us to provide you with 30 SPF UVA & UVB sun protection while leaving 0 white residue.
This allows you to use SRI Sunscreen any time, anywhere, even with makeup!
Instead of using those cheap products that are toxic to your skin and produced in foreign countries, we decided to spend a lot of time ad money on research in order to provide you an effective, safe product that can be used by anyone safely for any occasion.
When you put it on, you’ll notice how light it is, residue free, and actually doubles as a moisturizer, making it easy to apply. We chose to use Titanium Dioxide, so when it dries there won’t be any chalky white spots showing up later on.
Our especially formulated TiO solution has been research tested and proven to be SPF 30, sun resistant, blocking both UVA and UVB rays. That means that if it would take you twenty minutes to turn red in the sun, you can now stay out 30 times longer!
The additional ingredients we included have ranging uses including locking in hydration so that if you forget moisturizing before you get in the sun, you won’t have to worry about that chapped, dry feeling at the end of a long day on the beach.
SRI’s Sunscreen also contains UVA radiation blocking technology. This longer wave from the sun has been found to penetrate the skins outer layer, and lessening your exposure will improve your age appearance and exposure to cancer causing environmental factors.
Before we release any product, we like to ask ourselves, “would we let our kids use this?” If it’s not safe for them, then we go back to the drawing board to improve it.
So, we are 100% confident that it’s safe for you and your children. Because it’s a naturally based solution, and it is made completely in USA in an FDA registered laboratory.
Simply, no. We used Titanium Dioxide as the main sun blocking ingredient, the go-to choice for natural sunscreens, we chose to bump up the quality even more and added Octinoxate, an organic molecule that does two things, one it absorbs uva and uvb rays giving you a additional protection, and two it allows for the sunscreen to be absorbed only in the shallow top layer of skin unlike most suncreens that get absorbed into the deeper layers, this way allowing you to get maximum safe sun protection and no residue.
Although equally as safe, zinc oxide provides an inexpensive way to advertise purity in ingredients. What they don’t tell you is that when their products dry, your face will be covered in the white Zinc that sits on top of your skin, and is never absorbed.
Titanium Oxide is completely invisible, repels the sun’s waves and scientists haven’t found any negative effects to it’s use. It did cost a few cents more… But if you want a natural product, you mind as well get one that isn’t going to leave your face looking like you powdered it.
Yes, SRI Sunscreen is approved waterproof for up to 40 minutes. We suggest reapplying regularly if your child is in the water, after you dry using a towel or every 2 hours otherwise.
Absolutely, When we were designing SRI Sunscreen, we knew that being able to apply it multiple times throughout the day without messing up foundation, concealer and contouring.
Scientist and research show overwhelming evidence that non-nano particles (meaning they are not very small and dont get completely absorbed) are much more beneficial and safer than the traditional chemical sunscreen. One of the main reasons is that they don't absorb the harsh sun rays, they naturally reflect them.
We ship within 24h of you placing the order, usually even faster, and you should receive your sunscreen within 3-5 business days.
Yes, if you are not 100% happy with SRI Sunscreen just let us know, send the opened and un opened products back, and we will give you a full 100% courteous refund.
