Solid sun creams: the best protections for tanning with a good Inci and plastic free

A valid alternative to traditional sunscreens are solid sunscreens that reduce the use of plastic and use mineral filters

Don't store avocado like this: it's dangerous

To eliminate plastic as much as possible from commonly used products, shampoos, shower gels and other "solid" detergents have been spreading on the market for some time. But did you know that solid sunscreens also exist? We present some of them.

Summer has arrived and we must take care to always carry a sunscreen with us to finally enjoy some relaxation by the sea, in the mountains, in the pool or elsewhere, in total safety. However, we always pay attention to the Inci, evaluating in particular the sunscreens used within the compositions and avoiding the most risky ones (the chemical ones reported by various tests and investigations we have talked about).

Here are some of the best proposals on the market.
