Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between natural and conventional sunscreen?
Conventional sunscreens rely on chemical ingredients to absorb the sun's UVA and UVB rays. These chemicals are absorbed by the skin and have been shown to cause hormone disruption and can break down over time in into free radicals which may cause skin cancers. Natural sunscreen uses only natural ingredients and minerals to block the sun's rays, and are recommended by the Environmental Working Group as the best sunscreen available.
What makes natural sunscreens effective? How do they work?
Goddess Garden uses natural minerals, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, to block the sun's damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays naturally. Minerals create an invisible shield that bounces the sun's rays off of the skin, offering the best sun protection available!
I've heard I need to apply sunscreen a long time before going outside. Is this true for natural sunscreens as well?
Natural Sunscreen is effective in blocking sun immediately, compared with conventional sunscreen, which must be applied 15-20 minutes before sun exposure to see results. In the strong summer sun, sunburns can take place within 10 minutes.
I have tried other natural Sunscreens and they left my skin feeling pasty, greasy and white. Are all natural sunscreens the same?
No, Goddess Garden Sunscreens are made with a sheer form of Zinc Oxide that is virtually transparent. The lotion base is a high-end shea butter lotion that leaves your skin soft and healthy. The sunscreens are non-greasy, sheer and easy to apply.
What makes Goddess Garden Sunscreen natural?

What makes Goddess Garden Sunscreen organic?

Do I have to use sunscreen every day? I only drive to and from work and then I'm inside all day.
Sun damage occurs daily, especially during the summer months, and even when it's cloudy.
How much sunscreen should I use? How often do I need to reapply?
When using mineral-based sunscreen, you can apply and go outside: the minerals protect your skin immediately. In terms of quantities to use, apply about a teaspoon of sunscreen to your face and about a palm full (approximately 1 oz.) to your whole body. Repeat immediately after swimming and sweating excessively.
If Goddess Garden is 92% organic, what makes up the other 8%?
A portion of the Goddess Garden Sunscreen formula is minerals. While minerals are very effective as a sun block, minerals can not be certified organic. Therefore, the organic content in Goddess Garden Sunscreen is a high as possible.
