Therapeutic Skincare Brand CeraVe® Launches Hydrating Sunscreen

While incorporating sun protection into a regular skincare routine this time of year seems like a no-brainer, dermatologists agree that consumers could use some improvement when it comes to protecting from the sun. According to a recent survey conducted by CeraVe®, only two percent of dermatologists say they believe their patients take sun protection very seriously. Whether it’s a lack of knowledge or just confusion on best practices, consumers are looking for products that deliver sun protection and skincare without making sacrifices.

To help them take better care of their skin without the tradeoffs, CeraVe® has launched new Hydrating Sunscreen, a mineral sunscreen formulated with broad-spectrum sun protection and three essential ceramides to protect your skin in the sun and lock in moisture long after.

CeraVe® Hydrating Sunscreen is a 100 percent mineral sunscreen that uses titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to protect against UV rays. Unlike a chemical sunscreen that absorbs into the skin, a mineral sunscreen uses mineral filters to form a physical barrier on the skin and reflect UV rays away. Like all CeraVe® products, the sunscreen also contains three essential ceramides, which help restore the skin’s natural barrier while locking in moisture. CeraVe® is the only brand to offer a product that combines SPF protection plus three essential ceramides, protecting from the sun and providing all-day hydration and delivering skincare without any tradeoffs.

Using a sunscreen like CeraVe® and following proper sun care measures can help protect skin from damage like sun spots, premature aging and hyperpigmentation; however, many people do not even realize that their skin is being damaged by the sun if not protected. In fact, half of dermatologists say that they find themselves talking to patients about their sun habits due to sun damage more than half the time, even when patients are there for unrelated topics. Moreover, many people don’t realize that sun exposure can dry out skin, which is why CeraVe® sought to create a product that could provide both sun care plus skincare.

“What many of my patients don’t realize is that just because they aren’t showing visible signs of sun damage, like a sunburn, it doesn’t mean the sun isn’t harming their skin,” said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michelle Henry. “Though I recommend CeraVe® Hydrating Sunscreen to all of my patients because it offers both sun protection and hydration the skin needs, I especially direct my patients with who have conditions like eczema, rosacea and melasma to use mineral sunscreen because it is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.”

Since the mineral filters in CeraVe® Hydrating Sunscreen sit on the surface of the skin to reflect the sun instead of absorbing into the skin like chemical sunscreens would, it is both safe and ideal for sensitive skin. Further, the product is free of fragrances, parabens and oil. It has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance and is recommended for daily use by the Skin Cancer Foundation, underscoring its efficacy and suitability for all skin types.

Despite regularly reinforcing the importance of sun protection, dermatologists fear that the advice is not being taken seriously or is not understood:

  • One-quarter of dermatologists (24 percent) believe that up to 75 percent of their patients are lying about how much sunscreen they use and how often they use it.
  • Three-quarters (75 percent) believe that less than half of their patients are reapplying sunscreen throughout the day.
  • More than three-quarters of dermatologists (76 percent) say that less than 25 percent of their patients understand the difference between UVA and UVB rays.
  • More than half of dermatologists (52 percent) believe the most confusing part about using sunscreen for patients is when to use it and how often to apply.

“This survey underscores a lack of understanding of the need for proper sun protection measures among consumers. CeraVe® knows there is a need for products with SPF that consumers not only understand, but will want to use,” said Derrick Booker, Vice President of Marketing at CeraVe. “We’re proud to offer a mineral sunscreen with moisturizing benefits that our consumers can feel good about putting on their skin every day.”

CeraVe® offers a wide variety of therapeutic skincare products that are developed with dermatologists and contain an exclusive combination of ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II, which are essential to restoring and maintaining the skin’s natural barrier. The Hydrating Sunscreen is available in face and body varieties in SPF 30 and SPF 50 at mass retailers nationwide and on Amazon.

About Rugged Evolution:

By the time Arrington Gavin, CEO, was fourteen years old he had a full beard; the last time he was cleaned shaven was for his high school graduation. Over the years, he started growing his beard again and began experimenting with different products – some he liked, some he did not. But one thing he always searched for was natural ingredients. Whether taken internally or externally, Arrington is a huge advocate of natural products.

While doing much research for the right ingredients for his beard in 2016, Arrington began to share his findings with his family and friends. He then went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Wellness Recreation and Sport in 2017. His passion for the art of the human body left him with a burning desire to help individuals accomplish their personal best by living a healthy lifestyle through fitness and wellness. From that desire gave birth to Rugged Evolution – a beard care line of products that he could make available to other “men of distinction.”

Whether you are sporting a goatee, shadow or full beard, Rugged Evolution products are designed to enhance all types of hair. Our natural products nourish, moisturize and hydrate dry itchy skin that hides behind a beard.

Moon Bathing, a new renaissance

Happy Spring! Girls!

It’s the time to open your beauty inside and out.

Bathing is a regular routine for me to feel refresh and relax. It is the time that fully belong to myself. I can listen to music, watch movies, even enjoy a bottle of Champagne. Why not? Ritual bathing is on the verge of a new renaissance — and the contemporary method is to sync these botanical baths with the four phases of the moon. Based on your commitment to trends in health and wellness. So I want to introduce you a new moon bath style – bathing with Moon Bathing.

True wellness arises when we re-align ourselves with the rhythms and elements of nature. In an increasingly chaotic and over-stimulating world, Moon Bath’s bathing rituals inspire you to create space to slow down, tune in and reconnect.

Combining ancient wisdom with modern intuitive alchemy, Moon Bath curates earth integrated Botanical Bath Teas, Infused Sundance Sea Salt, Facial Rituals and Sacred Smoke aromatherapy.

Simple and natural, the products contain no synthetic chemicals or preservatives — because those don’t belong on our skin. The ethos of the modern bathing renaissance is to move beyond bathing as simply cleansing ourselves, and toward bathing as an opportunity to drink in through our skin the varied benefits of plant medicine.

They see the triple bottom line approach to business as an important way to make positive social and environmental change. Their initiatives include sustainable packaging, carbon neutrality, employment of underrepresented populations, and partnerships with socially and environmentally mission driven vendors. Moon Bath is also a proud member of 1% for the Planet, donating at least 1% of annual revenues to qualified environmental nonprofits committed to creating a healthy planet.

Inspired by living in alignment with the lunar cycles, they invite you to tune in to the rhythms of nature and create space to connect more deeply with yourself through Ayurvedic self-care rituals.

BOTANICAL BATH TEA — Lunar Collection

Moon Bath’s Lunar Blends are intentionally crafted Botanical Bath Teas that enhance your connection to the energy of each of the moon’s phases.
All of the Lunar Blends promote healthy skin, healing and relaxation — but to receive the most potent energetic benefits, Moon Bath encourages you to bathe weekly with the Bath Tea that corresponds to the current phase of the moon. The lunar cycle has four distinct moon phases: New, Waxing, Full and Waning.

INFUSED SUNDANCE SEA SALT — Milk & Honey

Slip into a warm Moon Bath sweetened with velvety Milk & Honey and drift into a state of bliss. Receive abundant healing nutrients from coconut milk, honey crystals and trace minerals from unrefined sea salt, consciously-mined from the ancient Sundance Sea in Utah. Infused with a blend of sustainably sourced essential oils, this delightful element of the bathing ritual transports you to a state of grounded calm, uplifted mind and connected Spirit.

BOTANICAL BATH TEA — Nasty Woman

Nasty Woman is a rally cry that ignites the inner passion for equality and justice, uniting the voices on behalf of the collective wellbeing. By purchasing this product, you are donating $2 to Planned Parenthood and supporting a women-owned business. Enjoy this Nasty Woman Bath Tea to be reminded of how powerful, courageous and resilient you are.

What makes you nasty?


COSMIC GLOW – Botanical Face Mask

Cosmic Glow removes impurities, brightens complexion, detoxifies and calms the skin using purifying Moroccan Rhassoul clay and nourishing Ayurvedic botanicals.

SACRED SMOKE — Smudge Blend

Integrate Sacred Smoke into your bathing ritual and ceremonies to clear energy, purify the air and create space to tune in. Our smudge blend weaves together the spiritually grounding yet uplifting essence of Frankincense, Copal, White Sage and Lavender, providing a sweet and earthy ceremonial smoke that will cleanse your space and connect you to Spirit.

Moon Bath holds a deep reverence for the plants, materials and the people involved in the production of the products. Moon Bath strives to inspire the global community to re-engage with stewardship of their precious earth and communities by taking action to reduce our environmental footprint, uplift one another, and invest in regenerative practices.
