Natural Sun Protection from Nature's Gate Sun Care!

I am a huge fan of winter but I can definitely say that I am usually relieved when the warmer months roll around again. Winter time means bundling everyone up to go outside and sometimes enduring severe snow storms and frigid temperatures. Summer means pool time, picnics, flip flops and everything that is fun to do in the sun. When summer is here, my children spend alot of time outdoors and making sure they are protected from the harmful rays of the sun is VERY important to me. All of my children take after me and have very fair skin and burn easily. I burn easily too and it really stinks because I don't ever tan after a burn...I just fry and then turn white again. Oh well...I manage to get some pretty awesome freckles from the sun though so it isn't so bad. :) It's time to break out the sunscreen again and I have another great sunscreen company to introduce you to today!
Recently, I was introduced to a company called Nature's Gate. I had never heard of them before and was intrigued by the fact that they offer vegan sunscreen. Did you know that The Environmental Working Group just released full research report on the Safest Sunscreens of 2015 and Nature’s Gate Sun Care placed five times on the list?? That's amazing!! Sun protection products analyzed by EWG found that 80 percent of the products they tested contain harmful ingredients or offer inadequate protection against dangerous ultraviolet radiation. How impressive that Nature's Gate was on that list FIVE times!?! Nature's Gate also carries natural beauty products along with their sun care line, which is nice. Here is a bit more about this company...

In 1972, Nature’s Gate was conceived from innovation and natural resources. Two brothers from Venice Beach CA were enlightened to create a shampoo containing only the freshest and cleanest ingredients from mother earth.  They were inspired by the purity of natural rainwater, and therefore used it as their primary ingredient; coupled with natural therapeutic herbs to create the very first Rainwater Herbal Shampoo. The product was an overnight success and Nature’s Gate was born. 

Inspired by the eco-conscious consumer and influenced by Mother Nature. Nature’s Gate offers a cohesive line of wholistic beauty products from hair to toes, economically-sound without sacrificing substance or quality. Nature’s Gate products are trusted for their safe, wholesome and responsible formulas, appreciated as part of a wholistic beauty regimen.

Nature’s Gate prides themselves in honesty and integrity. We strive to maintain a transparent brand, in that we confidently share all of our ingredients with our consumers; providing them with the facts. We believe in living a clean, healthy lifestyle. At Nature’s Gate we believe it is not only essential what you put in your body but what you put on it as well.

Our mission and responsibility is to continuously educate ourselves in research, trends and safety to create the path to be a better, ever greener brand while embodying the wholistic lifestyle.

Because our skin is the largest organ in the body, it is so important that we care for it with meticulous attention. It is so easy to forget that what goes on the body also goes IN the body and so I am thankful for companies like Nature's Gate that makes it easy to decide what is good for us.
So, for this review I was sent two tubes of Nature's Gate is Sport Sunscreen, SPF 50 and the other one is Aqua Sunscreen, SPF 50. Nature's Gate Sunscreen is completely fragrance free, paraben free, Phthalate free, Oybenzone free and cruelty free. It is also infused with natural botanicals, making it soothing and gentle for all skin types. That makes me feel totally comfortable putting these product on myself and my family.
This looks and applies exactly as I would expect sunscreen goes on easily and provides great coverage. As far as sun protection goes, it works wonderfully! My children can wear it in the pool and the Aqua can protect their skin for 80 minutes while in the water, as well as out of the water. I do re-apply after 2 hours though as per the company's recommendation. I love that I can send my children outdoors to play in the sun without worrying about their skin and that I can protect them NATURALLY. Good stuff.
So, I would strongly encourage you to check out Nature's Gate Sun Care to see what they have to offer your family in way of natural sun protection. You can find their products at health and natural food stores across the U.S and Canada and their sun care products retail for $11.49. Be sure you visit them on Facebook as well...I am sure they would love to meet you and you don't want to miss out on any new announcements, products and special offers!!
