CAP Beauty: Katrina’s Pick for Best Sunscreens!

By Beauty Editor Katrina Hess

Now that summer is approaching and we’re starting to spend more time outdoors, it’s especially important that we protect our skin with sunscreen.

I’m advising my clients to use a non-nano sunscreen. This is a sunscreen that contains zinc oxide particles larger than 100 nanometers, so it sits on the outer layer of your skin to block UV radiations and doesn’t penetrate deeper skin layers to absorb and reflect the UV rays and visible light.

Many scientists believe non-nano zinc oxide is the safest option of UV filter we can use, and it also is considered the safest option for marine life and coral reefs! 

My new favorite brand of non-nano sunscreen is from CAP Beauty, which was co-founded by natural skincare expert Kerrilynn Pamer. 

Over the past 10 years CAP has earned a reputation for developing skincare products that meet the highest standards. Kerrilynn has combined her passion for education, plants and formulation to create this beautiful product line. (CAP Beauty also sells hair, skin and body care products, plus natural foods.)
