Your favorite sunscreen may not be all its advertised to be!
What’s worse the fact that the UV rays are cancer causing or the prospect that we are possibly assisting, the would be, cancer with applying chemicals to our skin. Suspect ingredients include oxybenzone, which could disrupt the human hormonal system, and Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) which is potentially cancer assisting.
The best sunscreen is a hat and a shirt. No chemicals for the skin to absorb, no questions about whether the product works, no bogus claims like “sunblock.” (No conventional product blocks out all rays. That’s why the FDA is trying to ban the term. )
But when you can’t avoid exposing your skin to the sun, find these top-rated sunscreens with broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection with fewer hazardous chemicals that penetrate the skin.
I have compiled a list of my picks of the best natural sunscreens:
100% Natural/Organic Ingredients. Cruelty Free & Gluten Free. this is a great product (when rubbed in) and is very effective also doesn’t leave that thick white coating like most zinc based sunscreens.
