Thanks in no small part to a tremendous increase in consumer awareness, “all-natural” has taken on a whole new meaning in suncare. There is no question that chemical-free products carry a certain mass appeal. In the world of suncare, however, the term “all-natural” has grown increasingly important.
Unlike any other industry, “all-natural” means more than just the source of a product in sunscreens. All-natural in sunscreen can make all the difference in performance and protection. Simply put, traditional chemical sunscreens (such as octinoxate and oxybenzone) provide excellent protection from UVB rays. These are the ultraviolet rays that cause sunburn – the rays that turn the skin red. However, they do not protect the skin from UVA rays, and that is where protection can be crucial.
It is the UVA rays that the Food and Drug Administration has determined is the cause of skin cancer due to exposure to the sun. What protects you from UVA radiation? The natural/mineral ingredients in all-natural sunscreens, specifically zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
These types of mineral ingredients provide what is known as “broad spectrum” protection. Under the new FDA sunscreen regulations, a product must now test for broad-spectrum protection to claim that it protects from both UVA and UVB rays. On top of that additional required testing, the FDA has also mandated that products not meeting broad spectrum parameters must begin to carry a warning stating that they strictly protect against sunburn and do not protect against skin cancer caused by the sun.
Pure Source has spent years developing broad spectrum and all-natural products. We provide all-natural sunscreen products manufacturing that will combine the protection you want and need, along with the cosmetic elegance you wish to sell.
The reason I got in contact with The Pure Source was because of lack of communication with my manufacturer overseas and wanting my product to be made in the USA. When I called and spoke to a sales rep , they made the whole process very smooth from the minimum order quantities to the explanation of the products they offer, they really helped bring my vision to life.
The Pure Source has been instrumental for my business. They have assigned an account rep who is hands-on and seems to really care. I personally made an inventory mishap and they picked up on it and resolved the issue ASAP. With all the ups and downs I have experienced it is nice that I can rely on a consistent manufacturer. Will absolutely continue to use and highly recommend.
Pure Source has been monumental in our success and the backbone of our product R&D. The team has been an absolute pleasure to work with and as they understand our needs better than we do which is a breath of fresh air in our industry. Cheers to the Pure Source team it's been great working together for so many years!
Pure Source was very professional and great to work with. They helped me with formulation all the way through shipping a final product. Will work with them again.
