Ethical Sunblocks and Suntan Cream

Bring on the sun - Times Online

organic natural sun block and sun cream -vegan
Bit late I know but I'm just back from Sunny Beach in Bulgaria - These same two natural ethical organic Sun Tan Lotions / Sun Creams /Sun screen that scored 4 stars are the same we took with us. They were so effective they lulled me into a false sense of security and the one afternoon I was playing on the beach without them I got slightly burnt. I can thus recommend them.

The whole sun cream thing isa catch 22 situation - you need the sun for vitamin D - but burning isn't going to do you any good at all.

Here's what the Sunday Times said

6 Yaoh organic hemp seed oil

SPF15, £9.95 for 240ml - The white cream has a pleasant coconut smell and rubs easily into the skin. And my pallid skin has remained that way, no sunburn. Although it has an organic tag, this sunblock contains a host of chemical-sounding ingredients and only certain ones are certified organic. However, farther down the list is organic olive and hemp oil, and aloe vera. Yaoh claims the chemicals it uses are the least damaging available, as well as being vegan.

3 Green People sun lotion - SPF15, £15.99 for 200ml

The nicest thing about this suncream is its delicious cool fragrance. It was easy to apply, too, without any residual stickiness. The ingredients include edelweiss, green tea and avocado, and a couple of scientific-sounding things – phenoxyethanol and ethyhexyglycerin – which may have something to do with the product’s suntan accelerator. It did prevent my fair skin from burning, so definitely one for the holiday suitcase.

Kate Moss Chooses Vegan

Moss’ new beau is rocker Jamie Hince -International Buzz-Entertainment-The Times of India

kate moss Croydon girl Kate Moss seems to finally be taking steps to getting nihilistic drug fuelled Pete Doherty out of her system. Helping with the purge is Jamie Hince a guitarist with the indie rock group The Kills, a self proclaimed 'vegan chain-smoker'! Kate & Jamie sparked the rumours of them being in a relationship, because of a 30-hour drinking session at a London pub.

Jamie was named as one of the world's sexiest vegetarians earlier this year. Although Kate Moss looks like the media's stereo-type impression of a vegan it seems she doesn't eat much of anything. A good healthy vegan diet maybe exactly what she needs after all that alleged boozing and drug taking with Pete Doherty.

However from the look of vegan Jamie Hince, his self professed chain smoking and the fact that the relationship with Kate is started on the basis of late night drinking it sounds like health, diet and nutrition won't be featuring very high up on their list of priorities.

What is the world comming to? You just can't trust anyone these days. Time was when you could read a tabloid paper such as The Sun and avoid being affronted by confrontational words such as Vegan.

These days the word vegan even slips into headlines!! Outragous!
