There are hundreds of sunscreens on the market today. There are three problems with most sunscreens:
- Chemical filters (active ingredients) are hazardous to humans and the environment, including coral bleaching
- the majority of sunscreens do not provide effective protection
- there are many hazardous inactive ingredients
“The reality is the majority of sunscreens are not safe, healthy, or effective. We launched Love Sun Body because we wanted to give people the opportunity to enjoy the sun again by offering the safest and highest quality sunscreens, which are truly effective and safer than any sunscreen on the market today.
At Love Sun Body, we developed revolutionary sunscreens, Love Sun Body 100% Natural Origin Mineral Sunscreens. Love Sun Body sunscreens are the first and only sunscreens in the United States that have been certified by Ecocert Cosmos Natural, meeting and exceeding the FDA OTC Monograph System, the European Commission’s recommendation on UVA protection and Health Canada Natural Health Products Regulations. All of our products are biodegradable and our packaging is recyclable”. - Dr. Terry Zickerman, CEO, Love Sun Body
Third Party Certification
Given the lack of global regulation on natural cosmetics and the misleading marketing from many companies, Love Sun Body has pursued Cosmos Natural Certification as a way of proving to consumers and retailers that our products are truly 100% natural and environmentally responsible. Many companies use the phrase “natural” even when chemical ingredients co-exist with natural ingredients in a formula. The unregulated use of “all-natural” devalues the notion that a product is completely natural. Having Cosmos Natural certify that our formula is of 100% natural origin – may prompt explanation – but it gives us an opportunity to educate consumers and ensure they know that our product is sourced and produced responsibly, with an understanding of where our ingredients come from and are truly 100% natural and free of any harmful chemicals.
Third-party certification means that an independent organization has reviewed the manufacturing process of a product and has independently determined that the final product complies with specific standards for safety and quality. This review typically includes comprehensive formulation/material reviews, testing and facility inspections. Most certified products bear the certifier’s mark on their packaging to help consumers and other buyers make educated purchasing decisions.
