NEW from GREEN PEOPLE: SUMMER 2015’s LATEST NO-SCENT, NATURAL SPF30 FOR THE FACE
Can an SPF be all natural? Green People, purveyors of no-scent, natural sun protection for people who prefer their skincare clean and green, have added this new Scent-Free, Natural High Protection, Non-Irritating, Non-Greasy, 87% Organic, UVA/UVB Sun Cream for the Face (take a breath)…and if you’ve got sensitive skin or prickly heat is problematic in summer, this SPF would be worth checking out. Another difference is its antioxidant ingredients – it’s got Edelweiss and Rosemary extracts in it, too.
Edelweiss grows at very high altitudes in the Alps (the Greeks called it “lion foot of the Alps” or “Queen’s flower”. The hardy little white flowers possess a mini treasure trove of skin-friendly natural actives including chlorogenic acid, luteolin, bisabolane derivatives, and beta sitosterol – its anti-ageing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties have made it a hit with northern European beauty brands, most notably Swiss, Austrian and German. Taken internally, it can help dysentry and diarrhea among other things, which gave it its German nickname of “stomache ache flower”.
Texture-wise, this cream isn’t at all greasy or glossy, so if you normally go for a no-sweat, ultra-matte cream, this is one.
The label is nice and clean, too, so if your face isn’t a fan of sun, summer and SPFs, have a look at the try-me size below…
It’s on pre-order at the moment and launches officially on 7 July.

One of the things I love about Green People is their sample sizes, fab little try-before-you-fly summer travellers and this new facial SPF30 is one of them! At the nice foolproof price of £5 for 30ml (considerably bigger than it looks in this pic by the way!)
