Vivesana Review and Giveaway


How many of your worry about your child's exposure to the sun? Well, you should. I know I have said it before and I will say it again but the sun exposure that your child gets before age 18 sets up their risks of skin cancer later in life. I vow to always keep Dexter protected. One way to do this is to use a good quality sunscreen that has a high SPF.

Vivesana would like to present something very new to the world of organic sun care, including....
~ the first 70% organic baby and high performance sun care on the market.
~ clear application, deep moisturization, and more than a little style.
~ the first 100% natural sun care with strong protection – the highest all-natural SPF (40 & 42) on the market, actually
~ the first sun care - as far as we can tell - to use exclusively US-grown organics and domestic, sustainable, BPA-free packaging.


Vivesana makes a Polar Baby sunscreen that is Fiercely Protective. Gently Nourishing Solar to Polar Baby is the strongest, safest natural UVA/UVB protection this side of a shady tree. It employs photo-protective, antioxidant-rich botanicals to supplement natural zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. The result is unique: highly protective, gentle, and nourishing natural protection for little ones. Let the fun shine in! Pure on Purpose. Solar to Polar Baby naturally integrates with skin, allowing it to absorb fast and clear and moisturize gently. (Retails for $32 for 2.25 oz. tube)

What I like about it is the fact that it is really rich and thick (because Vivesana doesn't use fillers) and it smells very fresh and clean. You wouldn't even know you have it on!


Vivesana also makes a Polar to Polar Ultra Sunscreen. Fiercely Protective. Gently Nourishing. Solar to Polar Ultra's light botanicals, like jojoba and apricot, hydrate and nourish. Potent antioxidants, like green tea and raspberry seed, help scavenge radicals and repair damaged cells. Minerals, like zinc oxide, provide broad spectrum protection. Soothing extracts, like chamomile, help comfort skin exposed to the elements.
Pure on Purpose. Solar to Polar Ultra is designed to match skin composition, so it absorbs clearly and quickly, moisturizes gently and actively repairs skin. Made to Stay Put When You Don't. Durable barrier waxes and strong botanical integration with skin means excellent durability. Solar to Polar Ultra keeps up with the most active lifestyles.

I didn't get to review with product but it retails for $29 for a 2.25 oz tube.

In honor of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, one lucky Dexter's Super Savvy Mommy winner will receive a tube of the Solar to Polar Ultra and Baby (a $61 value).

I learned that they replaced water with stable light botanicals-water is drying and provides great conditions for bacteria to grow!

I learned that Vivesana uses aluminum tubes in order to avoid possible health risks with plastic and so that the packaging will be recyclable.

I learned they set out to create our dream products - carefully developing combinations of high quality organic ingredients while steering clear of unnecessary fillers, unpronounceable chemicals, and irritating natural ingredients..

Vivesana uses aluminum tube packaging from the United States, it's safer than plastic & can be recycled infinitely.
