Goddess Garden Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 Review: Does it Really Work?
Skin cancer is the leading type of cancer plaguing the US presently, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The sun’s harmful UV radiation is also the primary cause of premature skin aging, along with damages on normally aging skin like wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. It is unfortunate that while many Americans are far convinced of the evidence and are more than willing to heed to authorities’ calls to use sunscreen regularly, many don’t for very valid reasons.
For one, sunscreens have been receiving numerous criticisms but, most especially disturbing are research findings telling the public how sunscreens are effective at blocking the sun but ultra toxic to the body. Some consumers did not even have to hear those to refuse to wear sun protection because they are allergic to sunscreens.

Goddess Garden Sunscreen Pros
The sunscreen actives used are mineral sunscreens, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, which provide an added layer of physical layer to shield skin from UV rays by deflecting the radiation. This mechanism is very different from how traditional chemical sunscreens work. Chemical sunscreens absorb the UVA / UVB rays then, initiates a chemical reaction that turns the UV into less harmful by-products like heat.
