What Makes doTERRA's Sunscreen so Amazing?

Summer has passed, but it doesn't mean sunscreens should be kept out of the bay! 

Many people understand the importance of sunscreen in the summer months to avoid skin damages like sunburn, but in reality, sunscreens are supposed to be a year-round preventive health measure. For whichever season it is, 80 percent of the sun's rays pass through clouds, while snow can reflect up to 80 percent of ultraviolet rays. 

The usage of sunscreen dates back to ancient times specifically from Egypt when some plant extracts were used to help shield from the sun such as rice bran extract and jasmine. It's been proven track that sunscreens, don't only protects skin from UV rays, but it also prevents premature ageing of the skin.


Sunscreen is a powerful antioxidant topical preparation for the face and body that absorbs or reflects some of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. It is also known as sunblock or sunscreen. A sunscreen protects the skin against sun tan, and sunburn, and, most significantly, prevents the development of skin cancer.

Sunscreens are available in lotions, creams, sprays, gels, foams, powders, and other topical forms. They are common clothing supplements, particularly sunglasses, sunhats, and special sun protective apparel, as well as other forms of photo protection like umbrellas.

The use of sunscreen diligently also helps to slow or prevent the premature development of wrinkles, dark patches, and saggy skin.


How to Choose the Best Sunscreen for You?

Be completely sure your sunscreen has an SPF of 30 or higher. That's why doTERRA launched Sunscreen which delivers SPF 30 broad spectrum that protects against both UVA & UVB. It also hydrates and nourishes while leaving no visible residues.


What is the difference between chemical and mineral sunscreen?

  • The primary distinction between chemical and mineral sunscreens is evident in their ingredient
  • The Mineral Sunscreens just sit on top of your skin and shield it from UV rays.
  • Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, permit UV rays to penetrate the skin. Once the light enters the skin, the ingredients in the sunscreen initiate a chemical reaction in which UV radiation is transformed to heat.
