The Kit by Katherine Lalancette | April 16, 2018 The story of LASPA comes down to motherly love. It all began when Susan Mey couldn’t find a sunscreen that worked for her daughter Alison. “She suffers from allergies and skin sensitivities, so it was extremely difficult finding an effective sunscreen that wouldn’t cause a reaction and was also cosmetically pleasing,” Mey explains. She decided to take matters into her own hands and through good old trial and error, developed a natural formula that’s not only hypoallergenic but also enjoyable to use. The key is high-quality zinc. “Many mineral sunscreens are white and pasty and not very popular with women for this reason. We use a zinc that’s very fine and spreads evenly on skin.” Her products have become a hit with green beauty lovers as well as with her daughter Alison, of course. “She’s still a product screener and our model as well!” Read Full Article

Caitlin Agnew | Globe and Mail | March 6, 2018 Fun in the sun is a key component of any March break getaway down south, but if you’re as fair as I am, you likely have a horror story of getting too many rays on holiday. My worst burn happened in Jamaica when I decided to lie in the scorching tropical sun for 15 minutes before applying sunscreen to “get some colour.” The lobster-red shade I became was certainly not what I had in mind.
