Do you shave your face?

Do you shave your face?

Are you getting ingrown hairs or acne where you shave?

Your razor may be to blame.

More blades aren’t always better.  Don’t attempt to use twin or triple blade “closer-shaving” razors. The first blade stretches the skin; the second (and third) shaves too close, cutting hair off below the skin line. When the skin bounces back, those hairs are set up to be trapped repeatedly under the skin every time you shave.

If you are unable to sanitize your single blade razor in between uses (by soaking in alcohol for 2 -3 minutes before use), we recommend stocking up on this disposable kind: http://amzn.to/2tA6jNx

4 Ingredients You Won’t Find in Our SPF

Four common sunscreen ingredients were shown to kill or bleach coral at extremely low concentrations (as low as one drop in 6.5 Olympic sized swimming pools).

1 Oxybenzone (Benzophenone-3, BP-3) – Sunscreen ingredient that disrupts coral reproduction, causes coral bleaching, and damages coral DNA. Oxybenzone is found in over 3500 sunscreen products worldwide.

2 Butylparaben – Preservative ingredient shown to cause coral bleaching.

3 Octinoxate (Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate) – Sunscreen ingredient shown to cause coral bleaching.

4 Methylbenzylidene camphor (4MBC) – Sunscreen ingredient shown to cause coral bleaching. Allowed in Europe and Canada, not in USA or Japan.
