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)

Daily exposure to the sun is essential to your overall health; it’s overexposure that could cause some issues. Sunshine exposure is the best way for your body to create health protecting vitamin D. It is impossible to get enough vitamin D from food sources. Natural oils applied on the skin protect against sunburn and cancer. Unlike sunscreen, Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Unprocessed Coconut Oil, and Avocado Oil don’t completely block the UVB rays that are necessary for vitamin D synthesis. They protect the skin and underlying tissues from damage caused by excessive exposure. 

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. Every chemical and toxin in you body causes free radical damage. Sunscreens themselves can cause free radicals when exposed to sunlight. 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. 

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."

There is substantial evidence that there is an increase in cancer when sunscreen products are used (related to the chemicals in commercial sunscreens).

 

Disclosure: The secrets behind my Sun-Protector are the ingredients. Red raspberry seed oil is the number one ingredient in Sun-Up™ Before Sun Protector- and you will not find it in any commercial sunscreen, or any sunscreen product available to buy. Why? Red raspberry seed oil 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. However, it is extremely expensive and therefore, an effective ingredient that Big Cosmo avoids. 

Well, NOT ME! Those that know me and my skin-food, know that I am willing to take the risk. I will only provide the BEST options for the skin and the body. You may gasp at the price tag associated with this risk, however, please note that not only will you only find 100% natural ingredients; you will NOT find any water in my products. 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.

The EWG recommends that consumers not purchase sunscreens with an SPF higher than 50. SPF (sun protection factor) works by absorbing, reflecting or scattering the sun’s rays on the skin. It is misleading to put high SPF numbers on labels because it gives people a false sense of security and doesn’t offer much more protection than lower numbers. Keep in mind, SPF protects only against UVB rays, not the more harmful UVA rays which are the more prominent cause of skin cancer. 

Sun-Up™ is a "protector" because the research indicates each ingredient does provide some sort of skin protection.  

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.

        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™.

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 Essential Oil 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 Essential Oil 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 Essential Oil 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 Essential Oil 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.

 

*Ultra formula contains Non-nano Zinc Oxide ("non-nano" means that the particles are too large to be absorbed through the skin; therefore, it will not enter the body).
