Summertime means a lot of outdoor activities that can leave you looking like a dried out prune in no time. However help is on the way with Soleil Toujours! This company has organic skin care and anti-aging skin products that include SPF 45 sunscreen and sun mists that offer protection while we frolic under the sun.
I needed high SPF sun protection and a trip to the mall left me even more confused than I though possible. Have you seen how many sun protection products are out on the market?!
When I read why Soleil Toujours sunscreen mist was recently chosen by Sofia Coppola's as a must have beauty products this summer, I thought it might be worth a closer examination. Sofia Coppola only is an uber talented screenwriter, director, producer, actress, taste-maker and Marc Jacobs muse! When you try to eat as much organic as humanly possible, the last thing you want to do is smear some thick goo filled with toxic unpronounceable stuff all over yourself. The largest organ of our body is the skin and skin pores are capable of absorbing a lot of substances, that's how we get clogged skin pores for one. Overall, avoid oxybenzone and retinal palmitate. Oxybenzone has been linked to hormone disruption and potentially to cell damage that may lead to skin cancer. Several studies suggest that when exposed to UV radiation, retinyl palmitate generates free radicals and chemically reactive substances whose interactions with DNA may cause mutations leading to cancer. Yup - pretty scary stuff, makes you wonder what is worse - the damaged by the sun or the the sunscreen.

When Soleil Toujours founder Valerie McMurray decided to create a sun care line while pregnant with her third child, she knew it had to be formulated with the world’s finest and safest ingredients, using mineral sunscreen actives with absolutely none of the harmful chemicals present in many skin care products today. This extensive line of skin care products contains a proprietary EcoSun Complex with an array of natural ingredients including red algae, vitamin C ester, vitamin E and bisbolol for anti-oxident and anti-aging benefits that also reduce UV ray induced DNA damage.
Soleil Toujours is free of parabens, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate, propylene glycol, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance, synthetic color and is coral reef safe, hypoallergenic, vegan and gluten free! For those of us who love anything organic and natural this line offers a good array of sun protection products.
