This sunscreen represents natural anti-aging skincare at its very best. In fact, it’s my #1 recommended facial sunscreen for people with dry skin and/or mature skin. The Kari Gran 365 Essential Sunscreen for Face offers stable sun protection and yet somehow also offers a slight plumping effect to skin that anyone over 35 will appreciate.
The Ultimate Secret for Gorgeous, Youthful Skin
People sometimes ask me what the absolute best way is to keep their skin looking young and healthy as they reach their 30s, 40s, and 50s. They assume that because I blog about natural makeup and skincare, there’s some secret organic ingredient that they’ve got to know about. An essential oil, a plant extract, or some other type of ingredient that turns back the clock on skin.
There is one product that makes a remarkable difference for all skin types and I recommend with gusto, but it’s not exclusive to the green beauty world. It’s the sunscreen zinc oxide—the exact ingredient in this 365 Essential Sunscreen.
Zinc oxide is, simply put, the best sunscreen you can get. It’s the healthiest. It offers the best protection. It works for sensitive skin.
If I’m really serious about skincare, is SPF 28 high enough?
Yes, it is. Here’s why:
SPF ratings can be misleading. SPF technically only accounts for UVB rays from the sun—these are the rays that we think of as causing sunburns. When a sunscreen claims to be “broad-spectrum”—something that most of us understand from our dermatologists is a very good thing—that means it also takes into UVA, or the rays that typically cause skin aging.
So, looking at the chart, you can see that there’s verrrrrry little difference between SPF 30 and SPF 100. In fact, the FDA stated in 2007 that any SPF greater than 50 is “inherently misleading.”
So feel confident that the Kari Gran 365 Essential Sunscreen is giving you all the protection you could possibly want or need from both UVA and UVB rays!

|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
This is a GORGEOUS ingredient list. Each ingredient is safe and of the highest quality.
How to Use
Shake the bottle well. The first pump or two of a new bottle may come out clear; discard. Once the product comes out white, you’re ready to apply it. A full pump should be used on the face to get the full sun protection benefits.
The formula is liquid and although it comes out of the bottle white, the whiteness blends into skin upon application.
I recommend waiting a full minute after applying the sunscreen before applying any makeup; this gives the organic oils a few moments to absorb properly.
