Summer Staycation Essentials; Protect your skin this spring

Monday 12th Apr 2021 |

As the days get longer and the skies a little brighter, we all start to look forward to a summer break. While a trip abroad might not be guaranteed this year, there’s no doubt that the ‘staycation’ will be on most people’s agendas.

While we may not think of Britain as a guaranteed sun trap, it’s vital to wear sun protection during the warmer months, even if it feels a little chilly.

A report by in December 2020 shows that 28% of British adults haven’t used any suncare products in the last year, with 54% of those claiming they haven’t been anywhere sunny enough to warrant it. The truth is that even if it doesn’t feel like a high temperature, the skin is still being exposed to harmful UV rays, making sunscreen more important than ever. 

With a range of formulas to suit every skin type, the team at Green People have proved there’s no reason not to keep sun-safe this summer. Their award-winning sun creams are blended with more than 84% certified organic agricultural ingredients, including plant actives and soothing botanicals which absorb quickly on the skin for a soft, non-greasy feeling. And while many sun protection formulas are based on a blend of water and UV filters, Green People use soothing organic Aloe Vera at its core, boasting around 200 biological actives including enzymes and amino acids, that hydrate the skin.

Renowned for their ongoing commitment to sustainability Green People’s sun creams use renewable sugar cane packaging. Farmed on sustainable land, this carbon-neutral raw material captures CO2 so efficiently that for every 1kg produced, over 3kgs of CO2 is removed from the air. They’re also reef-safe and marine friendly.

Green People founder Charlotte says: “Gender-bending chemicals that mimic the effect of oestrogen are common in sunscreens and these can have a dramatic effect on aquatic life and play a role in coral bleaching.”

Green People don’t use chemicals that have been found to cause harm to the marine environment. Its blend of non-toxic filters guarantees broad-range UVA and UVB protection, whilst being environmentally friendly and ocean-safe.
