When did sunscreen get dangerous?

“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”. WHAT??? Wellness Mama

Recently everyone has been talking about sunscreen with the beautiful weather. Did you know sunscreen either has a mineral or chemical filter? Both of which have concerns of being hormone disrupting, penetrating to live tissue, etc.

“The most problematic of the sunscreen chemicals used in the U.S. is oxybenzone, found in nearly every chemical sunscreen. EWG recommends that consumers avoid this chemical because it can penetrate the skin, cause allergic skin reactions and may disrupt hormones.” EWG

Further they have found that almost half the ingredients are “inactive ingredients” or fillers, many of which have been tagged as allergens or having other issues.

In summary, I have put in my order for Beautycounter’s sunscreen which is EWG approved and free of all these toxins.
