Did you know … Wheatgrass can help heal a sunburn.

Did you know … Wheatgrass can help heal a sunburn. When the juice is used externally—either applied directly or applied to a cloth bandaged in place—the plant’s chlorophyll has been shown to help re-moisturize the skin, to alleviate sunburn, and to support burn healing*.

But—it’s more important to protect your skin from burns and excessive exposure altogether. Repeated sunburn has many long-term effects, including premature aging—loss of moisture and wrinkling—and increased risk of skin cancer. We encourage you to preserve your skin’s health and vitality, and make prevention a priority.

Always wear a broad-brimmed hat to shield your face when playing in the sun for extended periods of time. Wearing sunglasses, applying an SPF 30 sunscreen to unprotected skin, and avoiding exposure during peak UV times are also recommended.
