Safe Sunscreen Alternative

While the summer might be over, exposure to the sun’s harmful rays continue year-round. It is advised by the American Academy of Dermatologists that sun screen with an SPF of 30 be applied daily to prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging.

If you’re mindlessly rubbing sun screen all over your skin, you should be aware of the dangers of sun screen and the harmful chemicals in such products.

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), when shopping for sunscreen, you have a pretty good chance of picking a potentially dangerous product. The EWG has evaluated a number of sunscreens that have been both approved and pending by the Food and Drug Administration and found them to contain ingredients with nano-sized molecules that can penetrate the skin. The chemicals in these particles have been shown to affect a person’s hormone receptors and organs and may also cause problems with the thyroid, reproductive, nervous, and immune systems, and cause allergic reactions. cause hyperplasia, skin tumors and create free-radicals that potentially damage DNA. While SPF sunscreen blocks the suns rays, many experts suggest that the risks aren’t worth it and even go as far to claim that blocking the suns rays is responsible for low levels of Vitamin D which may potentially be a cause of skin cancer.

Before buying sunscreen, check the ingredients for harmful chemicals. Ingredients to avoid include retinyl palmitate or retinol, oxybenzone (a synthetic estrogen), octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC), avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate.
