There was a time not that long ago when I could not find the right SPF moisturizer and now there are so many great options.
I recently purchased this one from a cosmetics line I already adored, Josie Maran Cosmetics.
It has SPF 40, UVB, and UVA ray protection. It is lightweight and does not go on chalky like many SPFs.
Joisie’s signature ingredients, Argan Oil, makes this moisturizer smooth and light.
It doesn’t have that SPF scent that so many moisturizers have. It just feels and smells clean.
Not only is this moisturizer great, but so is the company. Many of its products are certified vegan, although this moisturizer is not one of them.
The line is made entirely free of parabens, and phthalates.
Josie uses environmentally friendly practices.
In the winter, and summer I wear her SPF 30 tinted moisturizer as well.
Recycle: All Josie Maran products are packaged in glass, aluminum, plastic or paper and can be recycled. The outer carton is a 30% post consumer waste product.
Compost: The corn based resin, known as polylactic acid (PLA), is formed into containers and packaging for food and consumer goods. The plastic has several things going for it. It’s made from a renewable resource, which means it has a big leg up-both politically and environmentally-on conventional plastic packaging, which uses an estimated 200,000 barrels of oil a day in the United States. Also, PLA is in principle compostable, meaning that it will break down under certain conditions into harmless natural compounds. That could take pressure off the nation’s mounting landfills, since plastics already take up 25 percent of dumps by volume. So, when you are finished with one of the products housed in our biodegradable compact remove the mirror and throw it into your compost.
The following products are packaged in biodegradable plastic: blush, bronzing powder, cream blush, cream bronzer, eye shadow, finger paints and pressed powder.
You can find Josie’s SPF moisturizer at my eStore, under ‘Skin Care – SPF Moisturizer’.
I’m currently testing out some other products from the line, so more reviews to follow!
