Our customers are athletes, so they’re spending most of their time training and racing outside in the sun. They asked for these products, so with a vast amount of research and development over the last few years- we delivered!
Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) March 28, 2015
Rocket Pure, a manufacturer of natural body care products for athletes, recently announced the release of their new natural sunscreen. They are offering the sunscreen in both 1 ounce and 3 ounce packages. Both options come with a bonus lip balm sunscreen.
The new products can be purchased at RocketPure.com or on Amazon. Click to see the natural sunscreen on Amazon.
The product description states that the natural sunscreen is made with non-nano zinc oxide and provides broad-based protection against UVA and UVB rays.
Some of the natural and organic ingredients included in the sunscreen and lip balm are non-nano zinc oxide, certified organic extra virgin olive oil, certified organic jojoba seed oil, and shea butter.
Rocket Pure founder Alex Armitage said adding a natural sunscreen to the product line was the next logical step for the Bellingham, Washington-based company. “Our customers are athletes, so they’re spending most of their time training and racing outside in the sun. They asked for these products, so with a vast amount of research and development over the last few years- we delivered!”
A blog post published on the Rocket Pure website states that most conventional sunscreen products utilize ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate. The Environmental Working Group, a website dedicated to informing people about the science behind the ingredients in common body care products, says these ingredients may be hazardous to your overall health.
EWG’s site says there are two major reasons for concern when using products containing oxybenzone and octinoxate. One concern is the biochemical or cellular level changes that can occur from these ingredients, such as cell mutations and cell death. These chemical ingredients may even be implicated in cardiovascular disease.
The second major concern is the evidence that these ingredients may be endocrine disruptors. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says endocrine disruptors are chemicals which produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects.
Rocket Pure says their new natural sunscreen contains no toxic chemicals at all and is perfect for athletes, runners, cyclists, swimmers, and all others who spend time outside and care about using natural and organic ingredients on their body.
