All Summer long, Healthy Home Magazine and EcoMom Alliance have partnered with 30 exceptional green bloggers to host the 2012 Go Green Get Fit Challenge, presented by PlanetShoes.com and we’re excited to introduce some great eco-friendly brands with reviews and generous giveaways from our amazing sponsors over the coming weeks.
ElyOrganics.com features over 100 effective, truly organic, Miessence skin & body care, cosmetics and nutritional superfood products. There’s no need to wonder if your skin & body care are filled with harmful chemicals because every Miessence product is rated from 0-2 in Environmental Working Group’s (EWG’s) Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. Plus Ely Organics presents a complete ingredients list on each and every product page, so you always know exactly what you are buying.
One of the biggest eco-fitness challenges for eco-conscious outdoor enthusiasts is finding suncare that is not only effective but safe as well. Ely Organics offers the Miessence Reflect Outdoor Balm, a nourishing balm with natural minerals that help reflect damaging ultraviolet radiation. It rates a “2″ in the EWG Database, indicating a low level of health concern, and was featured in EWG’s “Best Beach and Sport Sunscreen” list for 2012, as well as SafeMama.com’s 2012 Safer Sunscreen Cheat Sheet. But did it meet our bloggers’ performance tests?
Paige Wolf, Author of Spit That Out! gave it a thumbs up, saying “Even with all the eco-friendly sunscreens on the market these days, it’s hard to find one that covers all my criteria. My favorite sunscreens are safe with no harmful chemicals, effective for long-time everyday wear, good for both babies legs and adult faces, and not splotchy, gloppy, or leaving thick white streaks. After a test run it looks like Miessence Reflect Outdoor Balm has all the bases covered.” Read her full review HERE.
HealthfulMama.com “road-tested Reflect Outdoor Balm during a recent kayak paddle. Nothing tests the effectiveness of sunscreen better than a day on open water, with the sun high in the sky, and nothing but reflective surfaces surrounding the boat. I was unsure if the SPF 15 rating would be enough to keep me from burning. However, after two hours of paddling and splashing, the sunscreen did its job without the need for reapplication!”.
