AmazonLocal Deal: means 50% of sun screen and other organics

AmazonLocal is offering a deal right now for $16 worth of stuff from for only $8.
I am thinking this might be a good time to get sun screen. Sun Screen is a summer must, but it is also expensive if you are going for the safer brands.

View the deal on AmazonLocal HERE

You want avoid the active ingredients Retinyl Palmitate and  Oxybenzone.
These ingredients cause cancer-- so while you might think you are preventing skin cancer, you are actually giving yourself another kind-- just on the inside. Nice huh?

The best kind of sun screen is one with the active ingredients: Titanium Dioxide and/or Zinc Oxide.
Both of these are natural minerals.
And they tend to be much more expensive than the cancer-causing kind.

Here is a fantastic article from a woman who tries out all the natural sun screens and gives her reviews. Natural Sunscreen Comparisons

On there are a few mineral sun screens available.
Shady Days contains 82% organic ingredients and no parabens.
It is $9. With this voucher, it would be $4.50.

  1. I didnt read your update and bought it. found out i couldn't buy the sunscreen i wanted. I called amazon local and it was very easy and quick to refund my $8 dollars. I am still looking for some sunscreen. -

  2. So glad they refunded! Nice to know they have good customer service. I got a Kiss My Face brand at The Grocery Outlet that was about 70% off retail, but it was a very small bottle. SO I too am on the look out for safe sun screen and I will definitely be posting those deals. Good sunscreen is EXPENSIVE.
