I have been wanting to highlight this brand for a while now, and I'm thankful I found the time over the weekend to take some photos and showcase their amazing all natural sunscreen. Have you guys heard of Avasol before? I was first introduced to them from Capt. Liz Clark's instagram feed - a wonderfully adventurous woman with the ocean in the core of her being. If there was anyone I would take sunscreen advice from, it is this woman. So naturally, being an islander now, I am always looking for better sunscreen options being as it has become part of my [sometimes] daily beauty routine.
I was impressed, and I'm sold. I will never purchase another face stick again from any other company. Avasol has me by the curly, salty ponytail. Besides offering two tinted face sticks (see last photo; "dark" is on your left, and the regular "tan" is on your right), they also have full body sunscreen too. That's next on my list to try. But first, you are going to want to know why this brand is so spectacular.
It could be because of their biodegradable packaging - each sunscreen stick is inside a cardboard tube. Or maybe their natural mineral ingredient list - coconut oil, zinc oxide, rosemary extract, beeswax... Or perhaps that all these factors make it ocean safe, people safe and eco friendly? Water resistant for 80 minutes - this is all I wear when paddleboarding and after 2 hours in the full sun, still no burn or color on the face. Protected = beautiful.
One other thing I love. This is a small company, based in Santa Barbara, CA. That's shopping local for some of you, but at least for me it's shopping genuine, authentic and supporting companies seeking to do the best thing for people and the planet. Much love to these guys. Try them out, you won't be disappointed!
