Zion Health’s new Age Defense Natural Mineral Sunscreen with 20% zinc oxide and monmorillonite clay is a high quality mineral cream that offers SPF 30 sun protection to help prevent sun damage.
According to Victoria Maizes, MD Executive Director of the University of Arizona Center for Integrataive Medicine, "When choosing a sunscreen, look for the following active ingredients: zinc oxide or titanium dioxide (safe mineral sunscreens) or 3 percent avobenzone. Avoid products with oxybenzone (an endocrine disruptor) and vitamin A (or retinyl palmitate), which paradoxically may increase your skin cancer risk." Zion Health's Natural Mineral Suncreen formulated with zinc oxide and hydrating fruit extracts may now be purchased at Fremont Natural Foods store located on 5180 Mowry Ave, Fremont, CA 94538 and online at http://www.adamaminerals.com.
Although the sunscreen market has numerous chemical products, only 17 active ingredients are currently approved by the FDA, 9 of which are known endocrine disruptors. The other two are natural minerals that reflect UV light and include zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Zion Health’s new Adama Age Defense Beauty Balm uses natural zinc oxide to form a barrier on the skin against both UVA and UVB rays. Experts like Dr. Arthur W. Perry, a member of the Medical Advisory Board for The Dr. Oz Show, note that chemical sunscreens can be absorbed by the blood and may lose as much as 90% of their effectiveness, whereas physical sunscreens like zinc oxide do not. Zinc oxide is also considered a gentler alternative to chemical sunscreens for skin. According to emeritus consultant Dr. Jay L. Hoeker, sunscreen with inorganic filters such as zinc oxide may be less irritating to the skin and may even be used on babies six months or older (Mayo Clinic http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/baby-sunscreen/AN02156).
Zion Health’s new natural sunscreen Beauty Balm with montmorillonite clay combines natural zinc oxide with the antioxidant Vitamin C, anti-aging fruit peptides, malachite extract and hyaluronic acid for an all-in-one anti-aging, sun defense product. Vitamin C and fruit peptides work to protect skin from free radical damage while hyaluronic acid (http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/ProductsandMedicalProcedures/CosmeticDevices/WrinkleFillers/ucm227749.htm) replenishes skin’s nutrients and is approved by the FDA as an effective collagen stimulator.
