We feel it's important to protect ourselves, and our families, from the harsh Australian sun. Skin cancer, sunburns, and premature aging are not on the agenda when spending time outdoors. But generic sunscreens have petrochemicals and toxic ingredients, and it can be a struggle to find a brand that is not only going to protect our skin, but our health and the health of the planet. At Biome, we have strict standards when sourcing products, so we only stock what is great for you and the environment. Read more about our Strict Standards here >
But the biggest struggle we've had has been finding safe, palm oil free sunscreen.
Palm Oil in Conventional Sunscreen
Any creamy or liquid beauty product, such as moisturisers and sunscreen, need an emulsifying agent to bind the water and oil ingredients together. This emulsifier is more than likely to be palm-oil derived. Palm oil is also found in glycerine, and is used to make 1000 synthetic cosmetic compounds, including Emulsifying Wax and Stearic Acid. Because of this, palm oil's prevalence in the beauty industry means its hard to find palm oil free alternatives for any conventional liquid or cream cosmetic product.
