As summer comes to a close in New York, I was fortunate enough to find one more music festival, Grateful Fest, to go to! The day turned out to be one that dreams are made of and for me that means a whole lot of SUNSHINE! The sun was just beating down on me all day, especially on my face, and I can tell you that I had my concerns about it. I was trying out Smart Stuff Sunscreen for the first time ever and I definitely put it to the test being out in the direct sun for 6 hours!
The sunscreen is white but does not leave you looking like a Halloween ghost! It’s mineral based formula quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves no sticky or uncomfortable film on your skin. There was no overwhelming scent, a big plus! I woke up the next morning expecting to find a bright red sunburn on my face. What I did find is that my lips felt really dry BUT my skin was just fine. It didn’t look or feel dry at all. I applied Smart Stuff Sunscreen just one time and it passed the test with flying colors! I should have put it on my lips too!
I had my friend Judy use it too, here she is!
After learning about the concept behind the birth of the brand I have to say I was not surprised that it produced awesome results. Smart Stuff Sunscreen was created by two physicians who are parents and were driven to provide a safe product for their autistic child. In addition, “A portion of the profits from SMART STUFF™ goes towards supporting Luv Michael, a non-profit dedicated to educating, training and employing individuals with Autism.” I <3 them now. 🙂
As accomplished New York City physicians and loving parents of an autistic child, doctors Lisa A. Liberatore, MD and Dimitri N. Kessaris, MD tend to look at the world through a different lens than most. Every product they use in their busy lives is heavily scrutinized for the safety and health impact it has on them and their family.
As physicians, they understand a product’s effects on a molecular level. As parents, they simply won’t compromise when it comes to health and safety of their family and friends. So when the two became increasingly frustrated with the misleading ingredient labels and dangerous chemicals found in products in their home, they knew there had to be a better, safer alternative.
SMART STUFF™ was born from necessity, and based on one simple concept: well-designed products should work great day in and day out without compromising your health. While the concept was simple, the execution and realization of a full line of lifestyle and skin care products that met this principle is anything but.
Together, with a team of skin care professionals, the two began developing products to address the areas of most concern to them. Their first products are a safe and effective mineral based sunscreen and lip treatment as well as an all natural insect repellent. A skincare line using some of the finest natural botanicals and bio-tech derived ingredients available is in the pipeline.
Today, what started as a basic need of two ambitious doctors motivated by the well-being of their autistic child has evolved into something bigger than they ever could have imagined. SMART STUFF™ products are all natural and effective for children and adults alike. They are also environmentally friendly too.
