About the Brand
Tierra and Lava is a luxury, ethical vegan skincare and haircare brand out of Guatemala founded over 14 years ago. Its founder and owner, Lucy Ashman, had a dream to create personal care products that "have all the luxury of amazing skincare products without any of the crap and are so natural that you probably could eat them." Considering that she now has over 70 personal care products that she sells all across Central and North America, one could say that she succeeded.
We love that all of Tierra and Lava products are only made from plants and minerals locally sourced. Most of the high-quality ingredients used in their products are sourced directly from their non-GMO, organic home garden. Other ingredients are sourced from primarily local farmers and artisans to help them continue their traditional cultural crafts. In addition, to ensure freshness and quality standards, all the products are made in small batches.
Another great feature of the Tierra and Lava natural skincare products that we appreciate is that they all come in eco-friendly packaging. At Zero Waste Hero, we are proud to partner with this fantastic brand and offer our customers luxurious natural products that work and are kind to your skin and the planet.
How to Use
We recommend gently rubbing the fingers on the Plastic Free Natural Sunscreen and use a generous amount on your body and face. The sunscreen should be applied every two hours for optimal effectiveness. It should be applied more frequently in the case of swimming or frequent perspiration in intense sun exposure.
How it Works
The FDA recognizes this mineral-based broad-spectrum sunscreen's ingredients (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) as "generally safe and effective. The Plastic Free Natural Sunsceen’s mineral ingredients are too large to be absorbed into the skin and bloodstream. This cream only sits on top of your skin as a physical barrier to sun rays making it less likely to cause irritation or an allergic reaction, especially for sensitive skin.
The FDA recommends the Broad Spectrum sunscreen to protect against both the UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are responsible for premature skin ageing, wrinkles and age spots, whereas UVB rays are responsible for sunburn and skin inflammation.
Very high SPF sunscreens only provide UVB protection and decrease UVA protection. A Broad Spectrum sunscreen offers more protection than higher SPF sunscreens because it protects against both.
