Australia Is The Skin Cancer Capital Of The World

In the past couple years there has been an increasing interest around the use of natural oils as sunscreens. This is due to many developments in research that show natural oils do in fact posses a small amount of SPF. 

Lets start with the basics: Sunscreen is a lotion, spray or gel that reflects the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the skin when exposed to sunlight. SPF (or Sun Protection Factor) – is the measure of a sunscreen’s ability to prevent UV rays from damaging the skin.

Formulator Nancy Evans says “If you look at it in terms of plants, they do not need a sunscreen, their natural oils give them a protective barrier from the sun so they don’t burn.” From this thought, Nancy Evans began to research all seed oils and raw ingredients that contain a natural SPF properties to formulate a healthy organic sun cream.

Nancy Evans has developed a unique formulation which contains 7 organic raw seed oil ingredients that will protect the skin from UV and is made with organic herbs, organic essential oils and organic waxes. The cream works by leaving an invisible coating on your skin, just like a second skin without blocking the lymph nodes! With an organic wax layer, the Organic Rosehip Sun Moisturising Cream enables your skin to breathe naturally whilst maintaining its moisture, which is particularly important in the harsh Australian dry weather.

Nothing is more important to us on Earth than the Sun. One of the amazing things sunlight provides for us is Vitamin D. It is important for the creation and maintenance of bones. Over-exposure to UV radiation may cause serious health effects,  caused by tanning, sunburn, etc. Long exposure to UV radiation may accelerate skin ageing, which can lead to skin cancer. Heavy exposure to sun can also damage the eyes, leading to conditions such as cataracts.

It is especially common among people with light skin. Australia and New Zealand have the highest rates of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer in the world.
