Made in Canada: Introducing Alba Botanica

Wednesday, June 01, 2016

With vacay on my mind (I'm planning two major ones within 3 months) I'm already thinking of sunscreens. I'm lucky that a lovely Alba Botanica package showed up at my door. I won't lie, I've never heard of the brand before. Through research, I found out some really amazing things about Alba Botanica. 

Their products are:
  • Natural- Enhanced with naturally sourced botanical extracts 
  • Around since 1976
  • 100% Vegetarian 
  • Parabens-free
The keyword I keep on getting from these Alba Botanica sunscreens are: Emollient. Meaning: Softening and good for your skin. To be honest, that is the first time- I've ever seen those words to describe a sunscreen. This formula is like a milk lotion. So a few squeezes of the tube is all you need to fully lather your whole body. If your struggling to find out how much to really use on your body- google the "shot glass" method.

A few other notables: Alba Botanica provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 40 protection, Dermatologist Tested, hypo-allergenic and water resistant up to 80 minutes.

The biggest pro for me was the spray!
I have no answer why but I'm a sucker for anything spray lotion. It's just easier on my life. On vacay, just spray it all over the areas exposed to the sun and then pass it over to your significant other! Super easy.

Available at:, Whole Food & London Drugs.
