Glimpse Mineral Treatment has Conquered the Sun!
As many of you may know, or may not know, the Glimpse™ Mineral Treatment has been undergoing UV protection testing. I am pleased to announce that the testing has recently been completed and the results are in, Glimpse Mineral Treatment offers an SPF 25 and PA+++.
The UV protection rating system can be a bit confusing but here is what you need to know the SPF number indicates your protection to UVB rays and PA+++* is the measurement for protection against UVA rays. UVA/UVB rays damage your skin in different ways and it is essential to protect your skin against overexposure to the sun. For more information on UV check out the glimpseblog.com.
When formulating the Mineral Treatment I wanted to create a product that provided protection while working with your skin to support its inherent defensive mechanisms to the environment. I am very pleased with the results of the testing. We are achieving effective protection through the use of Zinc Oxide and botanicals rather than using chemical sunscreens such as octinoxate and avobenzone. Why is this significant? Recent studies are raising the question as to whether these chemical sunscreens do more harm than good.**
So go ahead and enjoy safe and protected skin this summer with Glimpse Mineral Treatment.
