Make Your Own Sunscreen Workshop

The Environment Committee of 50 Ways Rockbridge is hosting a class for learning how to make your own sunscreen with natural, organic ingredients. Our teacher, Chin Velasquez, is a local herbalist and owner of Soothing Herbals Apothecary.

Most commercial sunscreen brands’ active ingredient is oxybenzone, a toxic chemical which harms our bodies as well as the environment, specifically coral reefs. Avoid using products with harmful ingredients by joining this class, and learning to make your own.

This class will be held Saturday, August 12th from 1:00-4:00 at Lexington Presbyterian Church.  The cost is $35.00 per person.  This covers the time of our teacher, a take-home 2oz jar of natural sunscreen, and a recipe for making more on your own at home.

To sign up contact Gretchen Sukow (540-817-5340 or gdsukow62@fastmail.fm).  We do need a minimum of 10 people to sign up in order to hold the class.The class will be held Saturday, August 12th from 1:00 to 4:00 at Lexington Presbyterian Church.
