Summer wellness products for every body

With Summer in full swing and Pride pushing us to our party-hard and parade personal best, are you taking care of your body and skin? Here are some products that we approve of for their all-gender, environmentally-friendly commitment.


Summer is here and al that humidity can be good for your skin. But not dry heat! With summer quickly approaching, travel is on the mind! Whether it’s a trip to the city, or to a desert or high altitude environment, Oxygenetix makes it easy to take care of your facial dermis when you travel (it’s TSA approved)! That’s because Oxygenetix’s hydro-matrix does more than just sit on the surface of your skin and block it from breathing like many other skin care products. Instead, this hydrating complex helps deliver oxygen to your skin, replenishing it, as well as delivering fast-absorbing, long-lasting hydration all day. And the aloe vera base is antibacterial and soothing and helps protect you from blemishes that can become infected, and sunburn. This moisturizer comes in both an oxygenating formula, and an acne control formula to help battle breakouts from airplane travels (and they both have SPF 30)! So whether you are looking for a lightweight moisturizer to help battle city pollution, or an aloe based moisturizer with SPF for a tropical vacation, Oxygenetix has you covered!

Surf Durt

Here is a sunscreen product that protects both you and the environment when you head to the beach or the Pride tea dance or pool party! Clean formula, all-natural, reef-and-ocean-safe zinc sunscreen by Surf Durt with broad spectrum protection SPF 30. It even comes in a sustainable bamboo reusable container lined with aluminum. Features: High Performance Premium Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum Protection, 80-Minute Water Resistance, Cruelty Free, Made in USA, Available in Neutral Tan and Zombie White.


After the late nights and exertion of Price festivities, we needed a little help getting to sleep and getting rid of inflammation. +PlusCBD products Sleep and Relief are made of natural hemp, high quality ingredients, to industry-leading standards, with clinically backed formulas, and a dedication to safety at every step. +PlusCBD Sleep gummies really work and offer at least a solid eight hours of sleep. +PlusCBD Relief softgel supplements give a little boost to your sense of wellbeing and an overall sense of wellness and balance. Highly recommended, and check out their other products, too!


We couldn’t get into Summer and meet our physical Pride commitments without some of Hempzilla’s CBD muscle gel, spray, and roll-on products! After all the inactivity of the cooler months it can be hard to get the body moving and that first exertion can leave you with some aches and chafes! Our favorite was definitely the CBD Joint and Muscle Gel — a godsend that penetrates into the muscle with cooling heat to offer soothing relief, recovery, and rejuvenation to pulled, tense or even sprained muscles, and strained joints, especially the neck, shoulder, or knees. It’s made with organically grown CBD in the U.S. which is enhanced with ACTIValoe® to increase hydration, absorption, and bioavailability for maximum benefits. The gel is infused with 24 potent essential oils that cool and calm sore joints and muscles on contact. This product was perfect after our long Pride march and a night spent dancing!
