Natural Protection from the Sun

As the warmer weather arrives, many of us begin to spend a lot more time outdoors. Even those of us who are outside all winter, spring and summer may offer the chance to be outside with a lot less clothing covering our skin. Either way, protection from the sun is a must, and the Co-op provides a wide selection of natural and mineral-based skin protection products.

Badger‘s sunscreens are natural and mineral based. The advantage of mineral sunscreens is that they provide a physical block to UV rays. Additionally, they offer broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays using the mineral Zinc Oxide.
