The Sun: Benefits and Dangers. There Is a Need For Natural Sun Protection.
In Israel most of the year is sunny. Our body creates Vitamin D from direct sunlight when we are outside. But exposure to the sun can cause short and long term damage. People need natural sun protection while they are outdoors, at the beach, or on their way to the office.
In this article, we will explain how to get natural sun protection and how our ” Lavender’s Natural Cosmetics” products protect differently from other products in the market. We will provide you with information about which SPF is right to use and how you can protect yourself in a natural way. For more information on how to protect yourself, check our Anti-aging facial cream.
So, What is Solar Radiation?
Solar radiation includes a very large range of radiation including the light that it is so important to almost all life on earth. Also the kind of radiation we cannot see mostly defined as UV, which can have the main impact on the skin. UV radiation is divided into UVB and UVA radiation. In the offices and behind the glass and in the morning and evening hours most of the radiation is UVA radiation.

If You Wonder What UVA and UVB Stand For, Here is a Brief Explanation.
UVB is a small part of the sun’s invisible radiation, affecting only the outer skin. It causes the production of vitamin D, which is so important to us, as well as the “redness” of burning-sunburn.
UVA is the main invisible solar radiation that affects the outer skin and penetrates even in deeper layers. It causes skin aging, pigmentation, and a variety of familiar skin problems. Unfortunately, we can’t see the damage immediately.
The differences can be seen in the attached picture. You can see the depth of penetration and the various damage to our body.
What is SPF? Why is it important to check the sunscreen’s SPF?
SPF is a measure of the level of protection against UVB products only. The test compares how long it takes for sun-sensitive skin to turn red. It also shows how long it takes when the skin is covered in the cream to turn red. If a person is sensitive to direct sun exposure, his skin will turn red within about 20 minutes. If the person applies to his/her skin the SPF 15 cream, it will take 15 times this time- about 300 minutes (5 hours in direct sunlight). The SPF 50 cream will take 20 times, lasting as long as 6.5 hours. Therefore, it is clear that 15SPF is sufficient for daily exposure to UVB. And SPF50 is enough for those who plan to be 8 hours or more at sea. “Lavender Natural Cosmetics” Sunscreen product line was designed to offer sun protection. We kept in mind that our body needs a certain amount of exposure to the sun, in order to be able to produce Vitamin D. Therefore stronger protection may not be necessary. We need the exact protection, so our body can still benefit from sun exposure. Use our Face Cream SPF30 before you leave home as natural sun protection when you are outside.
But what about UVA? Why do you need natural sun protection?
Only in recent years, the health authorities have demanded protection from the UVA radiation, which is the really problematic radiation. Standardization in Israel and around the world requires a minimum of 90% UV radiation, leaving some radiation to pass and cause pigmentation and other long-term sun damage. “Lavender Natural Cosmetics” offers protective creams that block 99.9% of the UVA radiation and protect you perfectly, up to 100 times more than other creams on the shelf. We try to offer products that can give you natural sun protection.
How do “Lavender Natural Cosmetics” series of creams protect you from the sun?
Most ordinary sunscreen products available in the market, use a variety of synthetic chemicals that break down on the skin, and prevent radiation damage.”Lavender Natural Cosmetics” Sunscreen Teva Natural Sun Protection creams contain a certain type of ceramic material that is safe for use in babies as well and treats your skin with care. The Lavender Natural Cosmetics” Sunscreen creams block the sun’s rays and prevent it from reaching the skin. That way you get full protection from the sun.
“Lavender Natural Cosmetics” Line Is Safe For Your Skin.
The ceramic materials in” Lavender Natural Cosmetics” products include titanium oxide (edible material) and zinc oxide (used for baby creams), which are natural minerals extracted from nature and are cleaned crushed and dried. In ” Lavender ” we do not use Nano powders. They are powders with very small particles that penetrate the skin and have different properties that are still being studied.
All “Lavender” protection line products have been fully tested according to the European standard and are approved by the Ministry of Health in Israel.
Do “Lavender’s” Natural Creams Leave a White Layer?
We follow certain guidelines to provide you with full protection against the sun. Our “Lavender” Sun Care Anti-Aging Face Cream SPF15 is well applied and leaves a very delicate pink layer that is hard to see. The “Lavender” Sunscreen Cream with SPF20 is very concentrated and after a good smear leaves a delicate white layer on the body. The white color allows you to see that you are protected against the dangers of the sun. As long as there is a very delicate white layer on the skin you are protected, when the layer descends (usually holds an entire day at sea), you should apply some more. It is highly recommended for kids, to ensure that their skin is naturally protected during the long hours at the beach or the pool.
