Well, for one thing, Dr. Guerry Grune’s original formula of 3rd Rock Sunblock Lotion SPF 35 is formulated exclusively from food-grade, edible sunscreen ingredients. Consequently, it prevents skin damage caused by both the sun and the toxic synthetic compounds included in along list of ingredients to avoid.
In fact, unlike any traditional sunblock lotion, 3rd Rock SPF 35 offers UVA protection, and it prevents aging, wrinkling, and skin cancer much better than synthetic-based sunscreens. It does so by preventing the nuclear damage to cell DNA that causes cell mutation and, eventually, cancer. The advantage of 3rd Rock Sunblock Lotion SPF 35 is that it blocks UVA and UVB rays, rather than only blocking UVB rays like many standard sunscreens.
