    How often should I reapply when swimming?

    Posted on in FAQs

    The FDA recommends use of a water resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating and to reapply sunscreens at least every 2 hours. The True Natural SPF 40 Active is rated Water Resistant (tested to be effective after immersion in water for a period of 40 minutes). The True Natural SPF 50 sunscreens currently have NOT been tested for water resistance.

    Are your products Gluten Free?

    Posted on in FAQs

    All ingredients in the SPF 50 sunscreens, Self Tanners and Anti-Aging products are Gluten Free. The olive oil in the SPF 20 & 40 products have not been certified by the vendor as Gluten Free

    True Natural sunscreens are bio-based because zinc oxide, the active ingredient, is a natural mineral that is in effect renewable. All other ingredients are naturally source and renewable. The USDA BioBased testing confirms this and ensures it is not petroleum based (non-renewable).

    How do Self Tanners work?

    Posted on in FAQs

    The self tanning lotion utilizes a well known blend of tanning actives that has been proven to work effectively over many years. How do they achieve their purposes? Naturally derived DHA & Erythrulose chemically react with the amino acids on your skin to create a non-toxic brownish pigment called melanoidins, the tan effect. This has been a known affect since the 20's and proven safe of decades of use.

    What do you mean by zero chemicals?

    Posted on in FAQs

    Yes, everything under the sun is made up of molecules which have a chemical name. For instance, zinc oxide, a natural mineral, has a chemical formula of ZnO. However, when we talk about chemicals in the natural product world, we mean man-made, synthetic compounds.

    At TRUE Natural we are currently using lemon and orange oils at levels of 0.4% in our sunscreen formulations, well below the IFRA recommendations.
