Summer is a time of warmth, joy, and adventure, and it’s essential to take care of ourselves while also being mindful of the planet. We know how hard it is to shop ethically, so at Not to Die For*, we want to provide you with you with summer essentials that not only nourish and protect your skin, but also align with your values of compassion and sustainability. Here are 5 of our summer essentials:
Public Goods Reef- Safe SPF 50 Sunscreen
Traditional sunscreens often contain chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been found to contribute to coral bleaching and damage. This sunscreen has reef-safe sunscreen filters, providing effective protection for your skin without compromising the health of our underwater ecosystems.
It’s important to go for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) that shields against both UVA and UVB rays. You should apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
Public Goods SPF 50 sunscreen – $13.95
Revival Lip Balm
Lips are susceptible to dehydration, so a nourishing and protective lip balm is a must-have. Our vegan lip balm contains natural moisturizers like shea butter, coconut oil, and plant-based waxes.
Revival lip balm – $6.95
Sheridan Body Lotion
Hydrating your skin is essential during the summer, as exposure to sun and heat can lead to dryness. The BKIND body lotion is a lightweight, non-greasy vegan body lotion that absorbs quickly. It also comes in a glass container!
Sheridan body lotion – $22.50
Travel-sized toiletries are convenient for on-the-go summer adventures. These mini (or solid) versions of essential products allow you to pack light and adhere to travel regulations. In our shop we have a kit we made with travellers in mind, but you can also get them individually! You can get travel-size toothpaste, shampoo bars, and conditioner bars.
