Chemical sunscreens use one or more chemicals including oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate.
New research by the EWG (environmental working group) reveals that the chemicals commonly used in sunscreen are endocrine disruptors, estrogenic and may interfere with thyroid and other hormone processes in the body. As well, from all the swimming in the water, it is destroying the coral reefs and can damage wildlife.
The most common sunscreen chemical, Oxybenzone, was found in 96% of the population by a recent study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This is especially alarming since oxybenzone is considered an endocrine disruptor, can reduce sperm count in men and may contribute to endometriosis in women.
The EWG warns against using oxybenzone, especially on children or pregnant/breastfeeding women.
Of the 1,400+ sunscreens tested by the EWG, only 5% met their safety standards and over 40% were listed as potentially contributing to skin cancer. Yes, you heard that correctly.
Many sunscreens also contain methylisothiazolinone, which the American Contact Dermatitis Society named as its “allergen of the year”. We have seen many warnings of babies full of blistered skin from using these products.
Most sunscreens completely block the body’s ability to manufacture Vitamin D. Statistically, 75% of us are deficient in Vitamin D and Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to higher risk of cancer and heart disease (which kill more people than skin cancer per year).
Solar Protect Sun Care Cream contains a blend of oils with naturally high SPF and non-nano zinc to protect and repair skin, as well as block harmful burn rays but not block out your vitamin D production.
The sun burns us. That is a fact. We must use something to protect our skin but it is ridiculous to use something that will increase risks of cancer for the idea of decreasing a risk of cancer! So quit the chemical sunscreens and use the gentle and safe Solar Protect Sun Care Cream, a much wiser choice, safe for the whole family.
