As with any product that utilizes plant botanicals and essential oils in their formulations, there is a risk of skin irritation. Always be aware of this when using these kind of treatments.
where's the UV protection?
Astara claim that their moisturizers have a natural antioxidant UV protection. There is no proof that anti-oxidants can do this. Arm yourself with decent protection such as a titanium dioxide, zinc oxide or avobenzone or Mexoryl SX sunscreen.
