The problem


Consumers don’t know what’s in their sunscreen 

The mineral sunscreen market is largely unregulated. The FDA mainly worries about the SPF factor for “natural” sunscreens rather than the ingredients in them, so many companies end up getting away with calling themselves “natural” or “reef-safe” when in reality they’re far from that. By taking advantage of the lack of oversight, transparency, and confusing ingredients, consumers pay the price by using sunscreens that are either lacking in sufficient UVA and UVB protection or still have harmful ingredients in them. In fact, most American sunscreens can’t be sold in Europe because they don’t offer sufficient UVA protection. (Source)



For years, consumers have unknowingly been using sunscreens that wreak havoc on marine life. This damage happens when the chemical filters that are found in sunscreens accumulate on the tissue of coral reefs, which bleaches and even kills them. Sunscreen chemicals can also harm dolphins, deform fish and even impair algae from photosynthesizing. (Source)



In May 2018, Hawaii became the first state in the nation to ban the sale of over-the-counter sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate. The law went into effect on January 1, 2021, with the goal of preserving Hawaii’s marine ecosystems. Hawaii’s legislature found that oxybenzone and octinoxate, two chemicals found in many sunscreens, “have significant harmful impacts on Hawaii’s marine environment and residing ecosystems, including coral reefs that protect Hawaii’s shorelines.” Studies cited had found that oxybenzone and octinoxate caused mortality in developing coral; increased coral bleaching, which was indicative of extreme stress; and caused genetic damage to coral and other marine life. Hawaii’s law makes it unlawful to “sell, offer for sale, or distribute for sale … any sunscreen that contains oxybenzone or octinoxate, or both, without a prescription issued by a licensed health care provider.”


Following Hawaii’s lead, in 2019, Florida’s Key West City Commission voted on a similar ban of sunscreens with oxybenzone and octinoxate. The U.S. Virgin Islands, however, was successful in passing its ban on sunscreens that contain oxybenzone, octinoxate, and octocrylene, and took its legislation a step further—prohibiting travelers from bringing such sunscreens into the territory. Outside of the U.S. and its territories, the countries of Aruba and Palau, and the Caribbean Island of Bonaire, have all implemented similar bans on the sales of sunscreens containing toxic chemicals shown to damage marine ecosystems. (Source)


If these ingredients are harming the ocean, think what they’re doing to the consumers who use them.


These are the same chemicals that potentially millions of people are absorbing into their bloodstreams every time they use chemical or even mineral sunscreen since 60% of what we rub into our skin gets absorbed into our bodies (Source). Studies have shown that harmful chemicals from mainstream sunscreen products have been found in the bloodstream of test subjects in as little as seven days.


For the second time, researchers at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have released a study of common sunscreen synthetic chemical UV filters and has established that the chemicals are absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin at concentrations far greater than the Food and Drug Administration’s safety threshold – at levels beyond what the agency considers healthy. The FDA released a study that found sunscreen chemicals could enter the body after just one day’s use and were at much higher levels than recommended. The agency analyzed four off-the-shelf sunscreen products and found that they “resulted in plasma concentrations that exceeded the threshold established by the FDA for potentially waiving some nonclinical toxicology studies for sunscreens.” Previous studies have indicated a possible association between some of the chemicals and health risks such as endocrine disruption and reproductive harm, but no comprehensive safety data are available.


The first study published in JAMA by the FDA on May 6, 2019 , “Effect of Sunscreen Application Under Maximal Use Conditions on Plasma Concentration of Sunscreen Active Ingredients”.  The second study published in JAMA by the FDA on January 21, 2020 , “Effect of Sunscreen Application on Plasma Concentration of Sunscreen Active Ingredients A Randomized Clinical Trial”.

THE SOLUTION


A 100% natural sunscreen that’s eco-friendly

Our CEO and Founder Dr. Terry Zickerman is a global leader for his expertise in natural sunscreen formulation and research of transdermal effects of sunscreen filters and synthetic ingredients. Dr. Zickerman previously worked on Wall Street for over 20 years, specializing in institutional sales and research at Morgan Stanley.  

 

From the all-natural ingredients to the PCR packaging that reduces plastic waste by reusing old recycled material, to the UV blocking non-nano materials in the sunscreen, every aspect of Love Sun Body is good for the body and the planet. Even the cleaning products used in the manufacturing process are eco-friendly!



Love Sun Body doesn’t sacrifice effectiveness for sustainability. Their products  exceed the requirements in sunscreen for both the FDA and European Commission. 



In fact, ⅓ of the formula in Love Sun Body’s sunscreen offers UVA protection, which helps delay the aging process. If that’s not enough, Love Sun Body is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, with no eye-stinging ingredients and doesn’t leave a thick, white residue. All Love Sun Body sunscreens are safe for babies 6 months or older and children, all skin types including anyone with sensitive skin and for consumers that want safe and effective natural products.



Love Sun Body’s sunscreen is more than just a mineral sunscreen. Their tinted SPF 30 sunscreens are available in four shades, Pearl, Sand, Tan and Cocoa and offer full protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays, moisturize the skin, and act as a hint of a tint to even your skin complexion. Over six years of research and development has led to an ethical formula that is safe for every skin type. The products are PETA certified vegan, free of parabens, chemical filters, and even fragrances. The products are safe for children and babies 6 months or older, safe for all skin types including anyone with sensitive skin.


THE MARKET


Sunscreen with a raw, transparent supply chain 

Love Sun Body has completed the rigorous process of becoming certified by Ecocert Cosmos Natural, which guarantees that  all ingredients and sources of the products have zero pesticides, synthetics, and are non-GMO. They are the only sunscreen in America that can say that they use a truly 100% natural formula. 


This couldn’t be more important in a time where more than 50% of consumers worldwide value vegan, sustainable ingredients (Source). Their all-natural, non-nano particle formula is the only sunscreen that offers complete UVA and UVB protection that is also easy to spread and water resistant. 


Source 


Love Sun Body has also conducted extensive research to guarantee all skin-types can use their SPF 30 and SPF 50 sunscreens. More over, their sunscreen also fights wrinkles and age spots and moisturizes skin with ingredients like raspberry seeds and sunflower oil. They have successfully delivered a fragrance-free, chemical-free, cruelty-free sunscreen that meets the highest thresholds of effectiveness. 


OUR TRACTION

Love Sun Body also has had the honor of being the official sunscreen partner of the Melanoma Action Coalition, cementing their legitimacy among the medical community.

WHY INVEST


Invest in a safer, more transparent future for the sunscreen industry

Love Sun Body has spent the better part of a decade developing a truly safe, clean and effective formulas that’s good for the consumer and good for the environment, and they have the certifications to back it up. They're one of the only sunscreen companies on the market that consumers can trace their ingredients to their sources. This comes at a time where transparency and sustainability are the currencies of the realm as consumers worldwide are valuing eco-safety as much as effectiveness.



Love Sun Body also has huge potential for growth. Their tinted mineral sunscreen & moisturizer is their first step in becoming the first and only Cosmos Natural certified skincare and cosmetics company in the US. They are also developing additional sunscreen products to create a robust line of skincare products.  


Love Sun Body has also invented a revolutionary sunscreen applicator that is both safer and more effective than spray sunscreens. It applies coverage in hard-to-reach areas like the back, is made from eco-friendly materials, and is safe for children to use, unlike spray sunscreens. The applicator is still in development, the company believes it will disrupt the multi-million dollar spray sunscreen industry.



With your help, Love Sun Body will be the gold standard and leader in responsible and ethical sunscreen.

The FDA and American Academy of Pediatric Issues Warning for Parents about using certain Sunscreens that can cause Side effects on Children and Infants

29 days ago


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the American Academy of Pediatrics are warning parents to be careful with the sunscreen they put on their children, especially infants.

“There are mineral sunscreens that are much safer, like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are the go to standards when it comes to sunscreens," she said. "They are very safe, they don’t cause rashes and you can use them at virtually any age.”

Australian Sunscreens to be Tested for Chemicals that cause Cancer after American Studies raised the Alarm

about 1 month ago


The Therapeutic Goods Administration is investigating if brands sold across Australia could contain the carcinogens benzene and benzophenone. The regulator said it was testing samples containing benzene or octocrylene 'for the presence of benzophenone and compliance with existing standards'. 

The alarm was raised in June when US company Valisure tested generic medicines for purity and found nearly 80 sunscreens contained the carcinogen benzene.

Another American laboratory found most sunscreens that contained the approved chemical octocrylene had another carcinogenic substance – benzophenone.

Another Suspected Carcinogen Has Been Found in Sunscreens Containing the Active Ingredient Octocrylene

about 2 months ago


In March 2021, researchers from the Oceanological Observatory of Banyuls-sur-Mer (Sorbonne University, CNRS), in collaboration with their American colleagues from the Haereticus Environmental Laboratory in Clifford, Virginia, tested some sunscreen and anti-aging products purchased in France and in the USA. The products have undergone a 6-week accelerated stability aging protocol, equivalent to one year spent at room temperature. Then they were analyzed using a high-performance mass spectrometer.

“Initially, there is very little benzophenone in the products. But gradually as the product ages, there is more and more benzophenone,” told Prof. Philippe Lebaron, co-author of the study, to AFP. Indeed, after subjecting the products to the accelerated stability method, the concentration in benzophenone strongly increased in the products. "This is the first time the degradation of octocrylene into benzophenone has been demonstrated," added Pr. Lebaron.

Working with researchers at the Paris-based Sorbonne University, Downs and Joe DiNardo, a toxicologist who formerly worked in the cosmetics industry, tested 16 octocrylene-based sunscreens purchased in France and the U.S. All of them tested positive for benzophenone

Downs and DiNardo’s findings were published in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology in March. Later, Belgian researchers published similar results after testing products containing octocrylene.

Based on animal studies, the World Health Organization’s cancer research arm classifies benzophenone as a possible carcinogen. Research shows that benzophenone in sunscreens can interfere with estrogen, according to the WHO. The hormone plays a key role in the health of women and disrupting it can lead to early puberty and altered functioning of reproductive organs.

Downs’ study suggests that benzophenone was formed by degradation of octocrylene. Only sunscreens containing the UV blocker tested positive for the contaminant, and the levels increased over time. Downs has been studying the health and environmental impact of sunscreens for years. His research led Hawaii and other beach tourist destinations such as the U.S. Virgin Islands to ban the sale of sunscreens containing oxybenzone, which is chemically related to benzophenone and octocrylene, because of research suggesting damage to coral reefs.

The Government of Thailand Bans Coral-Damaging Sunscreens

about 2 months ago


The Thailand government recently banned sunscreens containing chemicals that damage coral reefs in marine national parks.

The kingdom's tropical beaches have long been popular destinations for millions of tourists, but concerns are growing that the lotions they use as protection from the tropical sun are harming delicate, slow-growing corals.

An order came into force banning lotions containing hazardous chemicals like Oxybenzone, Benzophenone-1, Benzophenone-8, OD-PABA, 4-Methyl benzylidene camphor, 3-Benzylidene camphor, nano-Titanium dioxidenano-Zinc oxide, Octinoxate, Octocrylene, that negatively affect marine life.

Dr. Terry Zickerman, CEO of Love Sun Body explains, “most mineral sunscreens contain nano-zinc oxide and/or nano-titanium dioxide, which are micronized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Companies formulate with these ingredients because it’s a faster route to formulate a mineral sunscreen with these nano particle size ingredients. Using micronized particles allows for less whitening on the skin using smaller size mineral particles. As well, these nano (micronized particles) do not perform as well as non-nano particles. The non-nano ingredients are more opaque and therefore absorb and reflect more UV light, making them more effective than nano particles. It takes more time for a company to formulate a mineral sunscreen to have the same esthetics without micronized particles. In reality, the companies using nano-material are harming the environment with these ingredients. These micronized mineral ingredients are also hazardous to coral reefs. The only UV filters that are safe and effective for humans, safe for our eco-system and marine life, including coral reefs are non-nano zinc-oxide and non-nano titanium dioxide”.

The Truth About Vitamin D Deficiency & Sunscreen Might Surprise You

about 2 months ago

Wait, Does The Sun *Actually* Provide Vitamin D?

Now, the sun is typically called a source of vitamin D, but here's the thing: the sun emits UV radiation — *not* vitamin D. So, where did this myth come about? Founder and CEO of Love Sun Body, Dr. Terry Zickerman explains, "The sun's ultraviolet B (UVB) rays interact with a protein called 7-DHC in the skin, converting it into vitamin D3, the active form of vitamin D." Basically, when a person exposes themselves to sunshine, a chemical reaction occurs in the skin that converts UVB rays to vitamin D.

Of course, you can certainly acknowledge this fact and partake in the famous 15 minutes in the sun act, a an old wive’s tale that claims you should sit out in the sun without sunscreen for 15 minutes every day. But there is a catch: along with prompting vitamin D production in your body, UVB rays also burn the skin, along with a whole host of harmful and potentially fatal health issues. As Dr. Zickerman states, "Those unprotected 10 or 15 minutes are way more than enough time to cause DNA damage, and every bit of this damage adds up throughout your lifetime, producing more and more genetic mutations that keep increasing your lifetime risk of skin cancer."

It's simply better to protect your skin from the health risks borne by UV radiation than it is to rely on the sun for vitamin D.

Welcome to Love Sun Body's Equity Campaign on StartEngine

3 months ago


"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. The reality is, there are thousands of sunscreen brands and products on the market, the majority of which are not safe, healthy, or effective.

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

May 21, 2021, Love Sun Body launched our Glow Natural Tinted Mineral Sunscreens & Moisturizer in four shades on QVC television and a second airing on QVC June 8, 2021. You can watch the first airing with Shawn Killinger, QVC’s top selling host for sales on the middle of Love Sun Body’s StartEngine campaign page.
