Sun Protection for face and body

For those of you who are not aware of the truth behind sun factors – there is very little difference in the strength of block out of a SPF15 – SPF100.   The higher the factor the less often it needs to be applied…. but the more chemicals it needs to keep it as a barrier on the skin. It is more beneficial to apply a lower factor sun block, more often! Elixir’s Sunscreen is a non-greasy sun protection lotion that is light, quick drying, easily absorbed and leaves no residue. Suitable for sensitive skin and babies.
