You can learn all of her secrets on her site

If something calls itself chemical free, just know you’re being lied to. Water. Good ole H2O is scientifically speaking a chemical. (Di-hyrdrogen-monoxide in case you were wondering.) In truth, we want to avoid toxins, not chemicals. Here are two lists to help you choose better sun care ingredients.
