So, do you know the difference between a chemical sun screen and a mineral sunscreen? No? Let me tell you..... Chemical sun screens contain oxybenzone. This chemical has been linked to cancer due to the increased heat it causes (UV rays attracted to chemical sun screen and convert to heat) it is also a hormone disrupter. It causes sensitivity and is the main cause of prickly heat. Chemical sun screens are cheap to buy. They spread easily on the skin but take around 20-30 minutes after application before they start to work. They have a high absorbency level not only into the skin but into the blood. Children absorb 1.4x more chemicals than adults due to their skin v body weight ratio. Chemical sunscreens are also toxic to the environment. Mineral sun screens don't react to UV rays. They are 20x more expensive than chemical sun screens due to the process of making the particles spherical so they cover the skin easily. Mineral sun screens don't convert to heat and do not increase free radicals. They are harmless to the environment. Mineral sunscreens are much better for sensitive skin. They contain zinc oxide which is soothing, causes no harm to the environment and is bio degradable. Zinc occurs naturally in the body and so any absorption is not harmful. Tropic have spent nearly 3years formulating their new sun protection range. What do you put on your skin???

180625 The first Echinacea and balm flowers opened. And in the background you can see the calendulas. They grew in almost every bed: In the garlic, the tomatoes, the potatoes and onions. And I let them grow. They’re said to be extremely good for the ground, as they have tap roots which reach down in the ground to 20cm. This loosens the ground and has an effect similar to composting because the plant nutrients can reach deeper levels. The flowers have healing potential and are delicious in tea. This year we wanna try to produce a calendula-extract with vodka. Stay tuned.
