Should a good moisturizer contain sunscreen?

Due to rising number of skin cancer cases, dermatologists recommend using face creams with sunscreen.

They also recommend using high sun protection factor, known as SPF 50.

However, although there are every day more face creams with sunscreen, most moisturizers or anti-aging creams on the market do not contain sun protection, or have a low or medium protection factor, such as SPF 30.

Why most moisturizers do not contain sunscreen?

If you want your face cream to have a natural sun filter (without certain controversial chemical agents), and in addition you want it to have a high SPF (50 or so), that is, if you want an organic moisturizer with sunscreen SPF 50, then the options are reduced.

Men's moisturizer


And again, you may wonder why there are so few moisturizers with sun protection?

The reason is very simple. Making an organic certified moisturizer (not just with one or the other natural ingredient), and ensuring that it has contained an SPF 50 sunscreen, the result will always-always-always be an excessively oily cream, not to mention say extremely fat.

And besides, if SPF 50 is truly natural, then that face cream will always-always-always leave a greasy white layer on your skin, which is not very attractive.

Sunscreen with mineral filter

It's that easy, truly natural and organic moisturizers with SPF 50, as they contain only physical filters (not chemical ones), become very thick creams and absolutely all of them leave an unattractive white layer on your face.

If you have purchased a moisturizer with SPF 50 and it does not leave a white layer, it can only be for two reasons:

1. The type of sunscreen filter it uses is a chemical one, and therefore, it is not a natural filter, which from our point of view is not desirable.

2. In the event that the sunscreen you use is truly natural, and it does not leave a white trace, then it contains a nano-particle filter, which it also not desirable. But we will tackle this topic in another article.

Some of you have asked us to add sunscreen to our Anti-Stress Gel or Anti-Stress Cream.

We have been researching for years how to add a truly natural sunscreen to our moisturizers for men without having to give up those phenomenal textures formulated for the needs of men's skin.

If we added a natural sunscreen with a protection factor of 50 to our Anti-Stress Gel/Cream, both to the gel texture for combination/oily skin, and to the cream texture for normal/dry skin, we would completely destroy its incredible texture. And we would turn our fabulous Anti-Stress Gel and Anti-Stress Cream into two heavy ointments that would also leave a white layer on your face.

Then you will wonder...

Why don't we use a non-natural protection factor, that is, a chemical filter?

Surely you are thinking that you know "natural" or pseudo-natural moisturizers with SPF 50 that do not leave your face white.

We do not want to use this type of chemical agents, since it goes against our philosophy to use certain chemical ingredients that are very controversial, both for our health and for the environment.

At Homo Naturals, as a reference brand of natural cosmetics formulated for men's skin, we are governed by the principle of prudence.

The principle of prudence, in natural skincare, governs not using controversial ingredients, which although their use is legally permitted, there are various studies that proof their possible toxicity for our body and the environment.

There is no shortage of examples of ingredients that have been used in conventional skincare for many years (for example, parabens), and that have finally, after much research and a long legal process, have been banned by the competent authorities.

However, during all these years in which this ingredient was not yet prohibited, it has continued to be used and marketed in conventional cosmetic formulations.

And chemical sunscreens are very controversial, and their use is even beginning to be banned on certain beaches and natural sites that deserve special protection.


What is our sunscreen advice?

Our solution is that you continue using your facial moisturizer, such as our Anti-Stress Gel / Cream, which have special textures for the needs of men's skin.

And after applying your Anti-Stress Gel/Cream, we recommend using our SPF 50 Sunscreen Stick.

Natural and ecological sunscreen SPF 50. Mineral filter. No benzophenones. Biodegradable stick. Organic + Vegan. With colour.

The solution is a sunscreen stick

Our Bio Sunstick is a sunscreen is very easy to apply. The protection factor is based on natural mineral filters (that is, it does not contain any such controversial chemical agents), and as we mentioned above, it has a protection factor of 50 in UVA/B rays.

Our sunscreen stick container is a biodegradable cardboard, and it has the advantage that it does not leave that unpleasant white layer that we mentioned above about natural sunscreens.

The reason why our Bio Sunstick does not leave a white trace is because it contains color pigments that camouflage that white trace.

  • No white trace
  • No nanoparticles
  • Without chemical filter

This pigment is also ideal for evening out your skin, hiding spots, redness or imperfections.

Your sunscreen stick should always be applied after your moisturizer. The way to use your sunscreen stick is very simple.

Apply the stick directly to various areas of the face, and then spread it with your fingers to even out the tone. And ready ;-)

In conclusion, our biodegradable sunscreen stick with SPF 50 is the best solution to protect yourself from the sun rays in a 100% natural way, without having a white layer on your face.

It is an Organic + Vegan certified product. Furthermore our Biodegradable Sunscreen stick contains antioxidant and anti-aging ingredients such as Shea Butter, Rosehip extract, Argan oil and Vitamin E. 

They are the best ingredients to protect your skin from free radicals of the sun.

What are the advantages of using a sunscreen stick?

The advantage of using a sunscreen stick is that you can continue using your facial moisturizer in the morning or at night, without giving up a wonderful light texture that you love so much like that of our Anti-Stress Gel / Cream for men.

And so, you decide when you want to apply your sunscreen stick, and when it is not necessary.

As you can imagine, using a facial moisturizer with sunscreen before going to bed doesn't make any sense and isn't very sustainable. The same thing happens if you use it during a rainy day without sun.

On the other hand, if you use a sunscreen stick only when it is really necessary, you will enjoy all the benefits of a light moisturizer for men's skin, and you will only use the sunscreen stick in a more sustainable way.

Switching to a biodegradable sunscreen stick is the healthiest and most sustainable option to protect your skin from the sun, as well as to avoid the generation of waste as much as possible to protect the environment.

Our biodegradable sunscreen stick is made in Spain with 100% natural best-quality ingredients.

In all our Homo Naturals men's skin care products, we use only plant extracts, cold-pressed plant oils, and 100% pure essential oils.

Is our Bio Sunstick only for men, or can women also use it?

Although Homo Naturals we specialize in men's skin care, and our Bio Sunstick is formulated with a light texture for the comfort and pleasure of men, our Bio Sunstick can be used by both men and women.
