ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla., April 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Studies show that typical commercial sunscreens can actually increase the damaging effects of the sun's rays. Dr. Al Sears' private label Pure Radiance is introducing Solis, a natural, botanical sun protection product that actually nourishes your skin and protects it from sun damage.
University of California researchers have found that oxybenzone, a common sunscreen ingredient, increases the production of dangerous free radicals in the skin. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration states that BHA, also found in many sunscreen products, should be avoided and not used at all on young children. These and other chemicals that absorb easily through the skin can lower the body's natural defenses against sun damage and contribute to a host of other problems, including:
- Injuring DNA,
- Affecting hormone balance and the production of thyroid hormones,
- Early puberty in children,
- Breast and skin cancers,
- And male infertility.
Also, typical sunscreens impede the body's ability to get enough vitamin D, which promotes bone strength and a healthy immune system, controls blood pressure and much more.
To allow people to enjoy the benefits of the sun without the health risks that ordinary sunscreens present, Dr. Sears created the all-natural sunscreen Solis, containing botanical ingredients that actually promote skin health, and permit the body to get the vitamin D it needs.
- No harmful chemicals
- Nearly invisible micro-fine zinc, nature's perfect sunblock, which forms a barrier against the sun's rays and boosts the skin's antioxidant defenses
- Abdiroba oil, which acts as an insect repellent
- Shea butter, which helps limit water loss from the skin, leaving it smoother and softer
- The natural moisturizers glycerin and Canadian willowherb
- Capuacu butter, a plant extract containing powerful antioxidants which may help boost the skin's natural defenses
Rather than having a chemical smell, Solis exudes the light natural fragrance of thyme and orange.
"The truth is, most commercial sunscreens can be harmful to the body," said Dr. Sears. "Why allow them to absorb through your skin when there is a natural way to shield yourself from overexposure to the sun? With Solis, I've created the 'perfect' sunscreen that is truly effective, with only natural ingredients, that don't risk your health."
