Now that it’s the season of sunshine and playing outside, sunburn is something that hopefully all of us are keeping in our awareness as something to prevent and protect against. Depending on your level of regular sun exposure and skin tone you may or may not be particularly worried about getting burned. However, whether or not you actually get a sunburn, your skin can still benefit from post sun exposure care to calm, soothe and nourish. Though you can no doubt go out and buy a pre-made private label product to do this, you don’t need to. All you do need is one, or two, high quality ingredients to keep your skin happy post sun exposure.
One of the best private label sun soothing ingredients is Raspberry seed oil. While some people claim that this berry based oil can be used as a natural sun screen, there is not enough scientific evidence to support this claim. However, Red Raspberry seed oil does help the skin to stay healthy and supple and is a great carrier oil to apply after you’ve been in the sun. It’s rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E so you know you’re giving your skin a delicious skincare elixir every time.
Another private label skincare favorite for after sun care is Jojoba oil. This liquid plant wax comes from the desert and is ultra rich in balancing essential fatty acids and anti aging and protective vitamin E. Its beautiful golden color and easy to absorb texture make this special ingredient a treat to use and an essential for anyone serious about their skincare. A day in the sun followed by some luxurious Jojoba oil fun is the perfect way to support your skin’s natural state of homeostasis.
If you come home hot, parched and in need of some serious skin soothing, then raw Shea butter is right up your alley. This rich and nourishing plant butter is the perfect botanical balm for after sun fun and a little goes a long way. Rub it on your shoulders, chest and even face for soothing skin love. Better yet, mix all three of these fantastic private label skincare oils together for a triple dose of post sun exposure support. It’s effective, affordable, feels good and your skin will thank you for it every time.
