Safe Natural Sunscreen and Bug Repellent

This is a sponsored post on behalf of DETER Outdoor Skin Protection but all opinions expressed here are mine.

My husband and I believe there is no better way to spend time with family then to spend time with them and make memories. We are firm believers in presence not presents. What better way to make memories than to travel, finding new places to explore together. While traveling is great and a good time to relax, I also have to be mindful that we will most likely be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays and, of course, pesky bugs at some point during the trip.

This is why I turn to Deter Outdoor Skin Protection products for my family. I know they offer natural sunscreen that is reliable and effective.

What are Deter Skin Protection Products?

Deter products came to be because Brad Zaro and his wife Debi were less than satisfied with the “safe” products that were on the market at the time. So, they set out to find something to protect them and their family that was both pleasant to use and very effective. Brad was a former Research Chemist with experience in the pharmaceutical field and decided to use his knowledge to come up with a product that was safe for both people and the environment. He paired with a team of dermatologists, professional chemists, entomologists, and outdoor experts. Together they make up the team at Mariner Biomedical, Inc. in San Jose, California, who has spent several years with many trials and errors to get their recipes just right.

After years of trial and error they finally came up with the reliable Deter products we know today.

How safe are they?

Deter’s main ingredients are both botanical and marine derived and are found in the USA. They focus on making sure that the ingredients they use are sustainable and natural. Making sure the products are made from natural things means the ingredients will not damage your skin like chemicals have been known to do.

Since their products are botanical and marine-based they are not harmful to the environment like many of the chemicals you would typically find in these types of products. To further help the environment they have made their packaging recyclable as well.

What I love about Deter Skin Protection Products

With most products on the market these days, the scent is overwhelming and seems to linger for what seems like forever. Plus, they leave a not to be desired greasy feeling long after they are no longer effective.

With Deter Skin Protection Products you don’t have either of those things. There is a nice light scent when first applied which it goes away after it is rubbed in. It applies easily with no greasy feeling left behind.

These two things alone are enough to sell me but, I absolutely love knowing that Deter Skin Protection Products are free of chemicals. It puts my mind at ease when it comes to applying it to myself or my family.

Deter’s Natural Mineral Sunscreen
Broad Spectrum SPF 30 in it. It safely protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays. I love that it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling behind like most other products on the market. It applies very easily and leaves no residue behind after being applied to the skin. There is a nice light scent when it is first applied but, that quickly fades after you finish rubbing it in.

The After Sun Lotion
I quite frequently put sunscreen on my kids and completely forget about myself so, I end up a bit pink or even burnt. The After Sun Lotion is something I can confidently apply to the affected areas and know that I am doing something good for my skin. It is formulated with botanical oils and aloe vera to help soothe the irritated skin.

Not only is this lotion great for damage done by the sun but, you can also use it on windburn too, which is great for the harsh Wisconsin winters.

The Insect Repellent plus sunscreen
This two-in-one makes it very easy to be sure you are not only protected from the sun but, the bugs all in one step.

With most bug repellents on the market, you end up feeling very sticky and, not always smelling the best either. With the Insect Repellent plus SPF 20 Sunscreen, there is no need to remember to bring both sunscreen and bug spray with you.

Using this 2-in-1 safely protects you against bites from fleas, no-see-ums, gnats, mosquitos, biting flies, and ticks, along with protecting you from the sun, all without any harmful chemicals.

Deter Skin Protection Products are all environmentally friendly, they even go as far as making sure their packaging is recyclable. Another wonderful about Deter Products is that they don’t test their products on animals like many other competitors do.

Deter Skin Protection Products give me so many reasons to love them. Pick yours up now so you can try them too.

You can order yours through their website and on Amazon
