Make Like Toast and Butter Me Up!
When I first ordered Butter Me Up Organics‘ Sunscreen, I was a little skeptical. I had never used sunscreen that didn’t come from a major retailer or wasn’t FDA approved. It wasn’t super expensive, but more expensive than the sunscreen I would normally buy at a grocery store. I am always more than happy to pay a little extra in order to purchase products that have a better impact on the environment and my body, but I want them to be effective.
That being said, I am so happy with the results of this sunscreen! I laid out on my roof in direct sunlight for almost two hours and was completely protected. I got a decent tan and no burns. No burns! That was my biggest concern and once I came back inside and realized I was fine, I rushed to write this post!
There are a lot of reasons I love this brand. The main reason is their slogan, “Don’t put anything on your body that you wouldn’t put in it.” How great is that? It has me questioning a lot of the products I use on my body on a daily basis. They also ship plastic free and upcycle their packaging when possible! Environmentally friendly shipping has become very important to me.
Another plus: this sunscreen is in a glass jar that can be repurposed! Besides the scary ingredients in generic sunscreens, a lot of them come in plastic bottles or aerosol cans. Most sunscreens from spray cans contain Oxybenzone and Octinoxate. These chemicals can be very damaging to our ocean’s coral reefs and threaten marine life.
I purchased the 6 fl. oz. jar of this sunscreen because that’s the standard amount in generic sunscreen cans. I cannot recommend this enough, and I’m not paid to say that! (that‘s becoming a popular phrase on here, isn’t it?) In all seriousness, I love promoting products that are actually environmentally friendly and effective.
