herbs etc. now carries Michigan-based Keeki Pure and Simple sunscreens, lip balms, nail polish and more. Many customers have commented on how the sunscreen doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky and grimy like others. They love how soft it feels on skin, too!
The best part is these products are completely non-toxic. Most sunscreens rate poorly with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) Skin Deep database, as their chemical components are carcinogenic, contain hormone-disrupting ingredients, contribute to liver and kidney damage, among others. Many nail polishes contain formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate and toluene, which contribute to developmental defects and cancer.
Protect your skin for those long days at the beach and color your tootsies with non-toxic nail polish in colors like Cherry Pie and Peacock Martini without the worry of slathering on a health hazard.
