Description

You’re headed to the beach and you’ve prepared accordingly. Towels…check. Sunglasses…check. Flip flops…check. Trashy romance novel…check. But did you prepare your SKIN for the upcoming bombardment of UV rays? I’m not talking about sunscreen—I’m talking about something you MUST do before you even step out the door…

Sure, most people just spray on some generic sunscreen before their summer festivities. But here’s the thing…sunscreen only scratches the surface in protecting from those deadly rays...

The truth is, both chemical-laden sunscreens and physical sun blocks, like titanium dioxide, create free radicals when exposed to sunlight. Free radicals are formed naturally in the body and play an important role in many normal cellular processes.

However, at high concentrations, free radicals can be hazardous to the body and damage all major components of cells, including DNA, proteins, and cell membranes. The damage to cells caused by free radicals, especially the damage to DNA, may play a role in the development of cancer by mutating cells to become cancerous, as well as other health conditions.

Which means sunscreens give us a false sense of security. They may prevent sunburns, but they do little or nothing to prevent skin cancer or aging of the skin caused by sunlight. In fact, researchers at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston cite: "There is no substantial evidence that sunscreen protects against any of the three forms of skin cancer."

That’s why, instead of relying on sunscreen, you need our Sun-Up Before Sun Protector…

Sun-Up adds natural oils to your skin to help protect against sunburn and cancer. Unlike sunscreen, these oils--including, red raspberry seed oil, unprocessed coconut oil, and avocado oil--don’t completely block the UVB rays. They actually let the “good rays” in, the ones that are essential to our overall good health and are necessary for vitamin D synthesis while also protecting the skin and underlying tissues from damage caused by excessive exposure.

Red raspberry seed oil is the number one ingredient in Sun-Up™ Before Sun Protector. It has a natural SPF of 28-50 AND, because it is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids, it not only protects your skin from harmful rays, but it actually nourishes, fights aging and heals the skin.

Plus, Red raspberry seed oil not only offers protection from the sun, but any free radicals that invade your body can be neutralized by the high anti-oxidant levels of the ingredients found in Sun-Up™

Full strength, Sun-Up™ Balms are designed to stay on the skin and repel water, all while protecting your skin and your internal body. Sun-Up™ has been tested and has remained on the skin for hours after application and water activity. A VERY little bit goes a VERY long way.

SUN-UP™ IS A "PROTECTOR" BECAUSE THE RESEARCH INDICATES EACH INGREDIENT DOES PROVIDE SOME SORT OF SKIN PROTECTION. 

We invite you to use this product alone, or in conjunction with a sunscreen you trust- just be informed and make your decision based on the facts. Primal Life Organics cannot, and does not make claims that this is a sunscreen. See disclaimers below.

“ZERO Sunburn, Not Even a Little Pink…”

“I took my 10-month old outside in 80 degrees and sun today for about two hours. This is really the first sun exposure he has had, and we all know babies have extra sensitive skin. I applied Sun-Up (not even the Ultra) once all over his body before we went out, and then once all over his body about halfway through our time outside. I put some on his cheeks and nose a third time in between these two applications because his cheeks were looking red, but turns out he was just warm because he had ZERO sun burn - not even a little pink! So happy with this safe sunscreen!” - Kennedy

Red Raspberry Seed Oil has a natural SPF of 28-50, and is one of the only natural oils that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. In fact, the SPF of Red Raspberry Seed Oil has been found to be equal to that of titanium dioxide, an ingredient commonly used in commercial sunscreens. It is high in anti-oxidants and has an anti-inflammatory effect; it can reduce the pain and inflammation associated with sunburn. It has been found to make abnormal skin cells self-terminate – essentially stopping potential tumors and cancers from getting established.

Pure Filtered Beeswax provides excellent, breathable protection against the natural elements.

Avocado Oil has a natural SPF of 4-15. Avocado Oil is rich in vitamins A, B, D and E, fatty acids and lecithin. It has a quick-acting capacity to be absorbed by the skin tissue and provides the skin with emollients that can hydrate, nourish and regenerate the epidermis or the outer skin layer.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a natural SPF of 2-8. Olive oil works to repair damaged skin and protect against skin cancer.

Virgin Coconut Oil is great for general moisturizing and serves as a protective layer to help retain moisture in the skin. Contains Vitamin E which is very protective. Helps with inflammation, irritation, and sensitivities. It also has a natural SPF of 4-10.

Vitamin E Oil is readily absorbed by the epidermis layer of the skin, and can heal damage caused by ultraviolet radiation. It can also provide protection to the skin from sun damage. Vitamin E also prevents water loss from the skin, and helps it to retain its natural moisture.

Carrot Seed has a natural SPF of 38-40. It has antiseptic properties which helps prevent and heal infection. Carrot Seed EO also helps with skin irritation and helps to rejuvenate the skin.

Lavender soothes pain, prevents bacterial infection, aids in scar-free healing, and has soothing, calming and restorative properties. Lavender Essential Oil has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is commonly used to speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns because it improves the formation of scar tissues. It also has a natural SPF of 6.

Myrrh is a powerful antioxidant, as well as having anti-inflammatory, antitumoral, analgesic, anti-infectious, antiviral, anti-parasitic, antiseptic, astringent and tonic properties. The ancient Egyptians mixed Myrrh with animal fat to prevent Sunburn.

Sandalwood has a natural SPF of 30. It also has wonderful regenerative properties for repairing skin after sun exposure.

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide is a non-toxic, and typically non-irritating, effective broad-spectrum sunblock. The particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, scattering and absorbing UVA and UVB rays, protecting the skin below.

 

Tips for use

Primal Life Organics recommends using the Sun Up ULTRA formula with non-nana zinc oxide for extended time in the sun (beach/pool day, tennis, golf, fishing) or during first exposures to the sun. When going on a winter sun vacation, Primal Life Organics also recommends the use of the ULTRA formula. Please reapply every 1-2 hours, when your skin starts to get pink and seek shade often.

 

Primal Life Organics recommends using the Sun Up regular formula once a base tan is established or in place of your morning moisturizer on days you will be in/out of the sun. Please remember to be "sun-smart" and seek shade, wear hats and sun shirts during prolonged exposure to the hot sun!

Directions

Directions for Spray: Shake. Spray evenly and massage into skin to help protect from UV rays. Reapply every 90 minutes, or as needed, for best results. SMILE.

DISCLAIMERS

Primal Life Organics cannot make claims about SPF for this product, as it has not been tested. We do not call this sunscreen and do not claim it to be sunscreen. We can, however, provide you with the information about each ingredient (from legitimate sources that have tested these ingredients) and allow you to make an informed decision as to whether this product is right for you. If we provide the education, you take control of your own destiny- instead of relying on Big Cosmo to make these decisions for you. (See disclaimers below)

Disclaimer: Primal Life Organics cannot, and does not make claims that this is a sunscreen. We simply compile the ingredient information in one place and ask you to form your own, informed decision of whether this is the correct product for you. In order to make claims of this product being a sunscreen with a specific SPF, we would need to have this product tested, which would be very costly and drive the price up. Also, it would provide little additional information that you can already conclude given the facts I provide you with. Remember, an SPF ABOVE 25 is not needed- as most need to be reapplied frequently to remain effective. Buying a high SPF product because of the number is appealing to your sense of "more is better" and provides you with a false sense of security- not sun protection. 

We invite you to use this product alone, or in conjunction with a sunscreen you trust- just be informed and make your decision based on the facts.

SAFE sun protection!

Love this product. Great for me and the kids. I can't stand the idea of putting traditional sunscreen on my family. This really works!

This works and is amazing!

I bought the Before Sun Protector because I am really trying to reduce mine and my kids' chemical load. I read the research and it sounded good, but I admit I was dubious at firs. The first time, I tried it just on me. That went well, so I tried it on my daughter in the park--then finally my son during a baseball game. None of us burned, not even my son who was in the full sun for extended periods. I also got the Lip Protector, which I use on my face/neck/chest when in strong sun for a longer time. It has zinc oxide, but does not leave any white residue, which I was so pleased by. I want the Ultra stick next, to prepare for the pool! And these products smell great, too--no fake coconut or chemical smell!

Sunburnt :(

I have bought a couple bottles of the Sun Up Spray. I was a little skeptical of it in the summer when I first started using it and got a little red but I continued to use it throughout the summer. I also bought more because it is the only sunscreen that I can find that is fully natural which I like. I brought it to Cancun which did not work out so well. I put it on my face, shoulders and chest and honestly it was the only places that I got burnt...and my poor kids got burnt too. I had to switch to another sunscreen for the rest of the week :(

Amazing sun protection!

I am blown away by how amazing this worked! I burn very easily and I tend to get sunburns on my cheeks (once I got one so bad it gave me blisters). I bought this to use as my face sunscreen for a trip to Brazil in December (height of summer). I used it everyday before heading to the beach in the morning and before going out for walks in the afternoon, and never ONCE got sunburned on my face. I was out for a good 2-3 hours, went in the ocean, and no problems whatsoever! The only things I didn't really like about it was how hard it was (but I had also gotten the bare face moisturizer, which came with a wooden spoon-like thing that I used to scrap up a bit of the sunscreen onto my fingers, but from there it was super easy to spread and it absorbed really fast) and it also tended to make my face itchy if I left it on too long. But I have found the latter to be true of any natural sunscreen (including Badger) so I think that's a personal problem than the product. I highly recommend it! :)

Love the feel

Easy to rub in as you don't have a white residue like other sunscreens! Feels good and moisturizing acting as multiple products in one! Still got some sun but didn't burn!
