It’s nearly the solstice already! But there is plenty of summer left and this workshop will help you make choices for yourself and your family about what to put on your body when it’s hot and sunny for the remainder of the summer.
In this hands on workshop we will review some of the latest information on conventional commercial sunscreen: what’s in it, what works, what doesn’t, how much does it protect you and what are the risks of using commercial sunscreen? Then we will turn our attention to some of the alternatives from nature including butters and oils with spf, traditional and safe barriers like zinc and titanium oxide and botanicals like Yarrow, Green Tea, Sea Buckthorn and others.
As a group we will make natural sunscreen and participants will take home a generous jar for personal use. This sunscreen is not a greasy salve; it‘s a rich, creamy, fragrant water–oil emulsion that you won’t mind slathering on your skin. You’ll learn the recipe and the technique so you can continue making your own sunscreen in the future.
