Does a good face cream have to have sun protection?

Because the number of cases of skin cancer has been increasing due to the excesses committed by many people who have been sunbathing without sunscreen for long periods of time, more and more dermatologists recommend using face creams with sun protection.

They also recommend using a high protection, that is, a protection factor 50 (or also known as SPF 50).

However, while there are more and more face creams with sun protection, most moisturizers or anti-wrinkle creams on the market do not contain sun protection, or have a low or medium protection factor, such as SPF 30.

Why don't most face creams contain sun protection?

If you want your facial cream, in addition to having a high protection factor (SPF 50), to have a natural sunscreen (without certain highly controversial chemical agents), that is, if you want a organic face cream with sun protection factor 50, then the offer is greatly reduced.

And again, you may wonder why there are so few face creams with sun protection?

The reason is very simple. make a natural face cream certified (not only with some natural ingredient), and getting this face cream to have a sun protection factor of 50 is possible, but the result always always always it will be a creamto excessively unctuous, not to say extremely fat.

And also, if the factor of protection 50 is truly natural, then that face cream will always-always-always leave an oily white layer on your skin, which is not very attractive. 

It's that easy, the natural face creams with protection factor 50, being able to contain only physical filters (not chemicals), they become very creamy creams and absolutely all leave a white layer nothing attractive on your face. 

If you have a facial cream with protection factor 50 and it does not leave you with a white layer, it can only be for two reasons: 

1. The type of solar filter that carries is based products chemical, and therefore it is not a natural mineral filter, which from our point of view, is not desirable. 

2. In the event that the sunscreen that you use is really natural and the cream does not leave white, then it is a nano filter (that is, with nano-particles), which from our point of view, is not desirable. But we will talk about this topic in another article later. 

Many of you have asked us to add a sunscreen to our Anti-Stress Gel o Anti-Stress Cream.

We spent years researching how to add a natural sunscreen to our face cream for men without having to give up those phenomenal textures formulated for women. men's skin needs.

If we were to add a natural sunscreen with a protection factor of 50 to our Anti-Stress Gel/Cream, both to the gel texture for combination/oily skin, and to the cream texture for normal/dry skin, we would completely destroy its incredible texture and turn our fabulous Anti-Stress Gel y Anti-Stress Cream in two heavy ointments that would also leave a white layer on your face. 

Then you will wonder...

Why don't we use a non-natural protection factor, that is, a chemical protection factor? 

Surely you are thinking that you know "natural" or pseudo-natural face creams that contain a protection factor of 50 and that do not leave your face white. 

We do not want to use this type of chemical agents, since it goes against our philosophy to use certain highly controversial chemical ingredients both for our health and for the environment.

En Homo NaturalsAs Reference brand of natural cosmetics formulated for men's skin, we abide by the principle of prudence. 

In the principle of prudence, in natural cosmetics, is governed by not using controversial ingredients, which although their use is legally permitted, there are various studies that demonstrate their possible toxicity to our body and the environment. 

There is no shortage of examples of ingredients that have been used in conventional cosmetics for many years (for example, parabens), and that finally, after many investigations and a long legal process, have ended up being banned by the competent authorities.

However, during all these years in which this ingredient was not yet prohibited, it has continued to be used and marketed in conventional cosmetic formulations. 

And chemical sunscreens are highly controversial, and their use is even beginning to be prohibited on certain beaches and natural sites that deserve special protection. 


What is our recommendation to use at the level of facial protection with SPF 50?

Our solution is for you to continue using your face gel or cream, such as our Anti-Stress Gel / Cream, which have special textures for the needs of men's skin. 

And after applying your Anti-Stress Gel / Cream, we recommend you use our Bio Sunstick SPF 50 at sun protection level
